Highest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Data Center Automation Market is accounted for $13.32 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $41.77 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 20.97% during the forecast period. A data centre is a building that houses a network of computers and storage devices and is used by businesses and other organisations to process, organise, store, and distribute massive amounts of data. The process of controlling and automating a data centre facility's activities and workflow is known as data centre automation. It assists in automating manual operations, monitoring, management, and maintenance chores carried out by human operators in data centres.

According to a report by IBM, a single manufacturing site can generate more than 2,200 terabytes of data in one month, and a single production line can generate more than 70 terabytes per day–yet most data remain unanalyzed and unsecured.

Market Dynamics:


Surge in volume of data

Huge amounts of data are produced every second by the increasing use of smartphones, social media, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and other internet-enabled gadgets. The epidemic made automation in the data centre’s daily operations more crucial. In response, businesses now spend more money than ever on automation and robots. By eliminating manual activities, automation solutions help operators of data centres deliver IT services more quickly and increase efficiency.


Lack of skilled professionals

With numerous developments on the market, it is crucial to have staff members that are proficient in maintaining and programming cutting-edge technologies. The skills gap in the data centre is growing when it comes to tackling skill shortage. More than half of data centre operators struggle to find employees, according to a research from the Uptime Institute. The anticipated expansion of internet or cloud giants as well as the rising capacity of collocation data centres in Southeast Asia, China, Australia, and other APAC nations are the primary drivers of the increased demand for skilled workers.


Rapid advancement in technology

The market is anticipated to be driven by the quick technological development that is reshaping data centres, such as server virtualization. In an SDDC concept, virtualization technologies replicate computational power and storage in software. Server virtualization makes it possible for data centres and service providers to accommodate numerous users on a single server by segmenting servers, as opposed to the conventional, wasteful way of providing one server to each user. Virtualization increases scalability since workloads are split among several servers. By ensuring that resources are utilised to their fullest, virtualization also increases efficiency.


Data privacy and security issues

The workforce of data centres frequently manages a very complex environment that consists of a varied selection of applications, databases, and competing platforms. Task management challenges might arise when managing this environment through scripting and platform/application-specific scheduling tools because they can be time-consuming and ineffective. In order to keep up with change, these fragmented instruments require frequent updating, which drives up running costs and reduces worker productivity. Additionally, a problem with data security is preventing market growth.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 epidemic hastened the use of digital services including contactless payments, e-payment, online banking, e-commerce, and others, leading to the production of enormous amounts of data. Work from home opportunities and social isolation also boosted internet usage. For the purpose of providing collaborative software to businesses and preserving data security and safety, they generated a significant need for data centres with strong connectivity, networking, and computing capacity. In order to administer the data centres throughout the social exclusion and lockdown times, data centre automation technologies gained popularity during the crisis.

The server segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The server segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to the development of sufficient network and storage infrastructure and the rising need for effective servers. Among the advantages of server automation are clean architecture, secure and dependable environment setup, greater accessibility and reliability, rapid feedback, software policies, a variety of interfaces and tools, testing, and reversal of deployments.

The cloud segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The cloud segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Organisations can supply features and functionalities more effectively and flexibly thanks to cloud deployment. The key benefits of greater cloud use are lower costs and less maintenance. Organisations can use a variety of data centres and cloud platforms for research and mapping by utilising cloud-based solutions.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the existence of the biggest data centres and the quick adoption of automation technology within businesses. Data centre automation is required to reduce manual processes and speed up operations as a result of the rising adoption of IoT devices, smart home devices, and wearable technology across the U.S.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the existence of sizable data centres throughout Germany, the U.K., the Netherlands, and France. The government's initiatives to develop sustainable data centres open up new commercial prospects in the area. The Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact of the European Union seeks to transform the region into the world's first climate-neutral continent.
