Indian IT infrastructure market to grow 10.3% in 2012: Gartner

External controller-based storage disk is the fastest growing segment within this market

By CBR Staff Writer

The IT infrastructure market in India comprising servers, storage and networking equipment will grow by 10.3% to $2.05bn in 2012 when compared to 2011, and is expected to reach $3.01bn in 2016, according to IT research firm Gartner.

Ongoing data centre modernisation, as well as new data centre build outs will be the primary contributors for the revenue growth, the research firm said.

Revenue from servers, which are the largest segment of the Indian IT infrastructure market, will reach $754.5m in 2012, and grow to $967.2m in 2016.

Gartner research director Aman Munglani said technology’s role in the enterprise is increasing and IT’s closer alignment with business, and vice versa, is a topic of much focus within Indian enterprises today.

"Soon there will be a time when there is no IT strategy, only a business strategy, as leading CIOs are seeing technology as a business enabler and a engine for innovation," Munglani said.

Revenue from the external controller-based storage disk market in India is expected to grow from $439.4m in end-user spending to $842m in 2016, while revenue from the enterprise network equipment market, which includes enterprise LAN and WAN, is expected to grow from $861m in 2012 to $1.2bn in 2016.

"The key growth driver for the data centre market is the ongoing investment in large captive data centres coupled with the capacity growth witnessed within the data centre service provider space," Munglani said.

"Though India is in the early stages of cloud adoption, cloud service providers will also be a key contributor to the infrastructure consumption, especially for commodity type, scalable technologies, such as scale out systems and extreme low energy servers."
