Data centre physical infrastructure market shows good growth

According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, data center physical infrastructure revenues grew 11 percent in 2021, despite supply chain constraints limiting growth in the second half of the year. As those supply chain constraints are forecast to remain throughout 2022, unit growth is forecast to be limited, with rising ASPs supporting revenue growth in 2022.

“Data center physical infrastructure vendor’s backlogs continued to grow in 4Q 2021, with many vendors touting record levels,” said Lucas Beran, Principal Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “This highlights the complex dynamics of the data center physical infrastructure market right now – historically high levels of demand, with the most significant supply chain challenges the industry has ever faced. However, this creates a significant opportunity in the market for vendors that can navigate the challenges better than others, leading to potential long-term changes in the market's competitive landscape,” explained Beran.
