A server chassis is a structure that houses various components such as motherboards, random access memory, and drives. The ability to keep the server inside a cabinet, which adds an extra layer of protection and helps to protect the server from pests, dust, climates, accidents, and other hazards. The server chassis is designed to accommodate multiple servers by stacking them one on top of the other. The server chassis is intended to integrate multiple servers while also reducing the amount of floor space required. This server chassis is available in a variety of configurations, including One or two CPUs, one or two riser cards, two or three expansion slots, and up to four IDE, SATA, or SCSI drives are common in 1U systems. Meanwhile, 2U chassis frequently adds support for up to six or eight hard discs. Most 4U systems can accommodate up to four CPUs, eight or more hard drives, and six or more memory modules. Most 4U systems can accommodate up to four CPUs, eight hard drives, and six PCI/E expansion slots. The server chassis can be used for a variety of commercial and personal applications, and others. Within the data center facility, the server chassis industry provides orchestration and space for equipment. The bay stacks hardware units with bolted enclosures that are secured.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the growth of server chassis market share including automobiles, oil and gas, and others. The unexpected outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on most, if not all, sectors of the global economy. Businesses dealing with sever chassis market are facing a slew of issues, including resource scarcity, supply and demand chain shifts, and revenue decline. The decline in the manufacturing of new auto products, cars, and electronic gadgets has a significant impact on the manufacturing of sever chassis and, as a result negatively impacting its server chassis market growth.
Top Impacting Factors
Some of the factors driving the server chassis market size include the growing demand for high-density servers, increased demand for scalable data centers, reduction of Opex and Capex, and ease of upgrading to the latest technology. Some of the factors that are expected to restrain the server chassis market opportunity in the coming years include the emergence of new technologies and increased need for support infrastructure. Growth in cloud-related technology and server chassis is a key opportunity for the server chassis server market in the coming years.
New Product Launches to Flourish the Market
AIC Inc., a leading provider of enterprise storage and server solutions on May 2021, launched its new short-depth chassis product family, which is ideal for a wide range of edge computing applications. Edge computing datacenters are located near end user devices in order to collect and process data in real time. They are typically compact and deployed in limited spaces. The RMC-1E and RMC-2E chassis are part of the AIC short-depth chassis product family. The RMC-1E is a 1U rackmount chassis that can accommodate two 7mm 2.5" SSD/HDD and two 3.5" HDD. The RMC-2E is a 2U rackmount chassis that can accommodate four 2.5" hot-swappable drives. The RMC-1E has a depth of 380mm (15 inch) and the RMC-2E has a depth of 450mm (17.7 inch), allowing them to fit in most cabinets and be deployed in tight spaces such as telecom or edge computing datacenters. These two models are designed to support GPU cards, making them ideal for AI, IoT, machine learning, digital signage, simulations, and other applications. In March 2021, ASUS, a global leader in server systems, server motherboards, and workstations, launched a comprehensive server portfolio based on AMD EPYC 7003 series processors. Both dual-socket and single-socket servers are available in 4U, 2U, and 1U chassis, with new architecture, chassis, and modular design to improve system flexibility and scalability. They also support the most recent PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0, OCP 3.0, and BMC technologies, resulting in superior performance and lower TCO with improved server performance.
Surge in Usage Customization in SSDs and Chips
In recent years, an increasing number of customers have requested that manufacturers customize special products such as chips, SSDs, racks, refrigeration, and so on, posing a significant challenge for manufacturers in the low-end market. Attributed to the low entry barriers in the server chassis market, it will pose a significant threat to some manufacturers who currently hold a large market share. More and more manufacturers who previously served in the low-end market are looking for more business collaboration and improving the quality of their products. Large manufacturers will lose their loyal customers if they do not innovate, update their products, and upgrade their services on time. Furthermore, a growing number of large corporations are entering the market. Huawei, for example, is a major competitor for other companies because it has matured production lines and sufficient capital flows to enter the market. With the continued development and maturation of the cloud computing market, users' requirements for server chassis industry will increase, inevitably stimulating more server replacement and posing a significant challenge to the server chassis market.
