Market Segment Insights
Servers segment is estimated to grow at a rapid pace
Based on components, the global cloud high performance computing market is segregated as storage, software, servers, networking devices, cloud, services, and others. The servers segment is estimated to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the increasing number of data centers as many mid-size enterprises and businesses are in the process of capitalizing in colocation and on-premises infrastructure to support the rising need for public cloud services.
However, the service segment is projected to gain a large market share in the coming years, owing to the various services offered by high performance computing, such as maintenance, support, and management. Furthermore, support is especially important while setting up HPC systems and getting them up and running. On the other hand, maintenance services include system upgrades and troubleshooting.
On-premise segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR
On the basis of deployments, the market is bifurcated into cloud and on- premise. The on- premise segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period due to the increasing concerns related to the security of sensitive data connected to national security and individuals' personal data along with the organizational data.
For example, in Mexico, the Data Protection Laws went into effect in 2010, allow for the distribution of data assets across the country. Furthermore, the government believes that in order to maintain national security, all sensitive data maintained by various government agencies along with the personal data of citizens should remain within Mexican jurisdiction. Thus, all these factors are estimated to propel the segment growth in the coming years.
However, the cloud segment is expected to register a key market share during the forecast period due to the increasing efficiency and cost-effectiveness as the organizations need not to invest in extra computing sources.
Government & defense segment is estimated to gain a large revenue share
Based on end- users, the global high performance computing market is segmented into healthcare & bioscience, banking financial services and insurance (BFSI), manufacturing, gaming, education & research, media & entertainment, government & defense, transportation, retail, and others. The government & defense segment is estimated to gain a large revenue share during the forecast period, owing to the growing adoption of advanced IT solutions in order to improve the computing efficiency.
However, manufacturing segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR in the coming years. Manufacturing operations are typically time-consuming and computationally intensive. Furthermore, manufacturing companies frequently use simulation and CAD software, along with the HPC equipment.
