Therefore, the increasing demand for the server is expected to propel the growth of the computer servers market over the forecast period.

The impact of COVID 19 is expected to impede the growth of the computer server market over the coming years.The effect of COVID-19 will dampen overall IT infrastructure (server and enterprise storage systems) investment as businesses temporarily halted and workers are laid off or furloughed.

For instance, total server sales declined to 22.1% in India to $232.1 million in the January-March quarter in 2020, attributing to the impact of COVID 19. Therefore, the impact of COVID 19 restraints the growth of the computer server market.
