Global Data Center Virtualization Market is valued at approximately USD 7.05 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 16.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Data center virtualization is the process of creating a virtualized or software-based representation of a physical data center environment. It involves the abstraction of computing resources, such as servers, storage, networking, and other infrastructure components, into virtual instances that can be managed and allocated dynamically. The primary goal of data center virtualization is to improve efficiency, scalability, and flexibility within the data center environment. The Data Center Virtualization market is expanding because of factors such as increased spending on data center technology and exponential growth in data center traffic.
This surge in data center traffic requires scalable and flexible infrastructure solutions. Data center virtualization allows for the efficient allocation of computing resources and the ability to scale up or down as demand fluctuates, ensuring that data centers can handle the growing traffic effectively. According to Statista, in 2019, Global data center IP traffic stood at 14.1 Zettabytes, which increased to 20.6 zerrabytes in 2021. The same source reported that, in 2022, spending on data center systems is expected to amount to USD 212 billion an increase of 11.1 percent from the year 2021. Thus, rising spending on data center traffic and spending on data center systems is driving market growth. Moreover, the rising number of data centers is further supporting the market growth. According to the United States International Trade Commission, as of the year 2021, there were nearly 8,000 data centers across the globe. In addition, Increased Adoption of private cloud and Integration of 5G technology in IT & telecom applications is creating lucrative opportunities to market growth. However, the limited awareness related to virtualization technology and increasing concerns regarding data security stifle market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global Data Center Virtualization Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to the dominance of key market players, rising investment in IT infrastructure technologies, and rising adoption of cloud storage technologies by IT and Telecom companies in the region.
