Global KVM Switch Market - Forecast to Reach a CAGR of 2.12% by 2021 - Research and Markets

The "Global KVM Switch Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The report forecasts the global KVM switch market to grow at a CAGR of 2.12% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Global KVM Switch Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the increased adoption for KVM via optical fibers. KVM extenders usually digitalize the signal and then transmit it via two optical fibers. The multimode optical fibers cover distances up to 500 m, and single mode fibers cover up to 10 km. The single mode or multimode fiber cables are therefore used to connect and extend the signal for peripherals such as keyboards, videos, and mouse. Fiber cables have already been used to support backhaul and last mile connectivity. With KVM switches, network operators are able to provide connectivity to peripherals using extensions like USB, HDMI, DVI-D, display port, and serial signals.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the requirements for improving desktop security and reducing risk. KVM switches are designed to provide improved desktop security and lower the chances of computer systems being attacked by hackers and other network intruders. With an additional level of security, KVM switches lower the vulnerability of the computer systems, servers used by government organizations, and data centers. In a data center, different network nodes are connected using a series of desktop systems. KVM switches that are used in these data centers to regulate the residual data transfer between main server control system to the rest of peripheral port groups of desktop systems use a unique set of IDs.
