Digital transformation seen carrying KVM, serial console server market past $1B

Nov. 3, 2022
High-performance KVMs, KVM-over-IP and serial console servers to lead segment growth through 2026, according to a new market analysis report from Dell'Oro Group.

According to the latest report from telecommunications, security, networks, and data center industries market analyst Dell’Oro Group, KVM switch and serial console server segment revenues are forecast to grow at a 5 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2021 to 2026, surpassing $1 billion.

The analyst said the segment's market forecast has been boosted by the long-lasting tailwind of COVID-19 -induced digital transformation, and the rapid emergence of edge computing applications -- despite near-term supply chain constraints and macroeconomic uncertainty.

As explained by Lucas Beran, principal analyst at Dell’Oro Group:

“The historically stagnant KVM switch and serial console market has been rejuvenated as digital transformation has accelerated. The trends of hybrid work, 5G, and edge computing are being supported by a proliferation of compute and networking infrastructure. As these deployments occur, enterprises and data center operators are rethinking their monitoring and management needs, with remote access, automation and security features becoming even more critical.”

The new report reveals that ATEN, Vertiv, and Belkin hold the top three market share positions. Geographically, the Americas is the largest sales region by revenue, but Asia Pacific is forecast to grow at the fastest rate of any region.

The report's summary further noted that:

Product growth is forecast to be broad-based, with notable growth occurring from high-performance KVMs, KVM-over-IP and serial console servers. Telco, broadcast, government, and logistics customer types are forecast to grow at the fastest rates during the forecast period.
