The military forces are among the leading end users of ruggedized devices such as rugged computers, data centers, and portable electronics. The demand for ruggedized data centers and servers is growing at a noteworthy rate among the military forces due to the rough usage of the devices at various remote locations where the environment is unfavorable for various consumer-grade technologies and systems. In addition, the need to store the vast amount of data collected from various sources is propelling the demand for rugged servers, as they are high-end security solutions. Thus, US military forces seek ruggedized data centers and servers to secure a large volume of confidential data. In addition, military vehicles, naval ships, and aircraft traverse various adverse environmental conditions, experiencing harsh temperatures, excessive shocks, and vibrations.

According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the US military expenditure increased by 0.7% from 2021 to reach US$ 877 billion in 2022, which included military aid of ~US$ 19.9 billion to Ukraine. According to the same source, the US accounted for 39% of military expenditures worldwide in 2022. Thus, the growth in military spending is escalating the procurement of ruggedized servers, thereby expanding the rugged servers market.

Several industrial server manufacturers have developed products to accelerate compute-intensive edge workloads and gain insight into critical aerospace and defense missions faster. In January 2023, Mercury Systems, Inc., the technology company that delivers processing power for aerospace and defense missions, announced its next-generation rugged edge servers featuring 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, formerly Sapphire Rapids. The server will accelerate compute-intensive edge workloads and drive faster insights for critical aerospace and defense missions. Such product launches drive the adoption of rugged server technology in the defense sector, further boosting the rugged servers market growth.

In September 2020, Crystal Group Inc. also launched three new rugged servers: the RS4105L22 4U GPU server, the RS1.532L21X2F twin server, and Crystal Group FORCE RS2606. These servers are designed for ultra-high ISR performance and can be deployed on allied military aircraft. These rugged servers provide essential capabilities for real-time reliability and accuracy in the military, boosting the growth of the rugged servers market. In April 2022, EXPANDO released its rugged SERVER HALF19 for ultra-high performance. The EXPANDO unveiled this rugger server to meet the growing demand for distributed intelligent architectures. The HALF19 is used in various military, industrial, and commercial industries.

The rise in demand would also enable the market players to expand their geographic reach and allow the ruggedized server industry to witness the emergence of newer players. Further, the adoption of ruggedized server is expected to rise in the coming years as military forces emphasize the digital transition to gain an advantage over enemies or competitors. The increased focus on the digitalization of military forces across the country is anticipated to bolster the growth of the rugged servers market.

China Dominates Rugged Servers Market in Asia Pacific:

China is the world’s largest manufacturing hub. As per the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), in the first half of 2022, China’s manufacturing sector accounted for 28.8% of the country’s GDP, which increased by 1.4% from 2021. According to the State Council Information Office of China (SCIO), in 2022, industrial production hit US$ 6 trillion (40.2 trillion yuan), and the manufacturing sector’s output reached US$ 4.98 trillion (33.5 trillion yuan), ranking first globally. It was seen that the manufacturing investment increased by 10.4% in the first half of 2022 compared to 2021. In addition, according to the China Machinery Industry Federation, in the first half of 2021, sales revenue of the machinery industry reached US$ 1.87 trillion, up by 5.44% year-on-year. Thus, the growing manufacturing and industrial sectors in China will boost the rugged server market in the country during the forecast period. Rugged servers overcome various technical difficulties associated with consumer-grade servers, including withstanding extreme heat, dust, shock, and vibration of factory floors, rising demand in manufacturing and industrial applications, further fueling the growth of the rugged servers market in China.
