• IT Infrastructure: Server procurement will bring in USD 90 billion cumulative revenue opportunity for vendors operating in Western Europe during 2022-2027. In servers, AI-based computing infrastructure is gaining increased traction in the market. NVMe flash storage dominates with its growth rate and 25/100 GbE switch ports among network infrastructures. Several innovations are also available within servers from different operators. For instance, Facebook in May 2020 announced the next generation Sonora Pass server specification at the Open Compute Project (OCP). Servers with AI and ML built into them are getting developed and offer features such as analytics for data, ease in developing AI-enabled apps, and flexible data deployment to grow the cloud operations in the market significantly.
• UPS Systems: $8+ billion will be spent on procuring UPS Systems in data centers during 2022-2027. Due to the failure of UPS and to overcome the challenges of VRLA batteries, vendors introduced lithium-ion UPS solutions and Nickel Zinc and Prussian Blue Sodium-ion batteries, most data centers operating in European regions are adopting N+N redundant infrastructure, while the majority of data centers are designing facilities with space for installing up to 2N+2 redundant UPS systems to cope with diverse feed designs of the facility, thereby, the growth of the lithium-ion UPS batteries in the data center market.
