The global data center rack market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period. One of the major drivers for end-user adoption is the lower cost associated with rack solutions. The manufacturers are adding new features such as corrosion protection, system expandability and thermal management, compatibility and connectivity for making them economically feasible for various verticals. However, consolidation, virtualization and blade servers could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. However, growing investment in data centers will offer ample opportunity to the various established and new data center rack vendors.

The emerging markets including China, Singapore, Brazil, and India have become attractive market for new and established companies engaged in the development and marketing of the rack for data centers. The most used standard data center rack is seven feet tall and 19 inch wide capable of accommodating 42U of rack mount server equipment. There are many options in rack size ranging up to 27 inches width and 58U height. The modern rack features integrated precision cooling, uninterruptible power, rack PDUs (Power Distribution Units), and wiring management with a lockable cabinet.

Over the past few years, many established data center solutions providers and new companies have emerged in this market providing advanced features into their equipment to consume less power and to have higher computational capabilities. Various companies such as Hewlett Packard (U.S.), Dell (U.S.), IBM (U.S.), Eaton (Ireland), Emerson Network (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France) and Rittal (Germany) have adopted expansion of its Research and Development (R&D) capabilities, new product launches, and merger & acquisitions as its key business strategies to ensure its dominant position in this market. In addition, Fujitsu (Japan), Huawei (China), and Hitachi (Japan) are some of the key players in the global data center rack market.

The global data center rack market has been broadly classified into data center rack services, i.e. consulting, installation & support, and professional. The installation and support services market is estimated to account for the largest share of the global market in 2014. However, the consulting services are expected to register highest CAGR for the forecast period of 2014-2019.

The data center rack market has been broadly segmented by frame design: open frame, enclosed and customized; by frame size: 19 inch and others; by rack unit: 36U, 42U, 45U & 48U and others. On the basis of region, this market is classified into five regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. In 2014, the global data center rack market is estimated to be dominated by North America with a 38.60% share followed by the Europe. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2014 to 2019 due to factors such as increasing numbers of new data center and high technological adoption rates. These new data centers are needed to support development-related projects in emerging economies such as China and India.

The most used standard data center rack is seven feet tall and 19 inch wide capable of accommodating 42U of rack mount server equipment. There are many options in rack size ranging up to 27 inches width and 58U height. The modern rack features integrated precision cooling, uninterruptible power, rack PDUs (Power Distribution Units), and wiring management with a lockable cabinet. The rack also requires additional accessories for cable management, power distribution and equipment mounting. The hyper-scale data center operators have started using taller racks than standard size out to pack the most server density square foot of the data center area.

The companies are designing and selecting the ideal racks for their data center needs and designing the server room around them. This help in avoiding under or overprovisioning new facility's power and cooling resources. The companies are installing the optimal infrastructure for the precise array of hardware and enclosures. The growing adoption of non-standard racks is mainly driven by the need to pack more servers into data center infrastructure, improve airflow management and fit more cabling into rack systems.

New product launches, partnerships, and acquisitions are the key strategies adopted by the major players to develop their position in the global Data Center Rack Market. Moreover, strategies such as agreements, collaborations and joint ventures were also adopted by a significant number of market players to strengthen their product portfolios and expand their geographic presence.

Hewlett Packard (U.S.), Dell (U.S.), IBM (U.S.), Eaton (Ireland), Emerson Network (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France) and Rittal (Germany) are a few of the key players operating in the global data center rack market.

This report studies the global market during the forecast period from 2014 to 2019. The global Data Center Rack Market is expected to reach $2.7 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2014 to 2019.
