The economic implications of data center acquisitions by leading global service providers have also significantly accelerated the boom in cloud technologies. Global vendors of data center systems are taking ever-increasing steps to reduce latency challenges and improve customer experience. Governments are also taking decisive steps to boost regional digital growth and promote the adoption of data center solutions. For instance,

  • In May 2020, the Cabinet of Thailand raised USD 146.6 million for cloud and data center funding. With this round of investments, the country’s government is aiming to boost regional digital growth. 

Thus, increased investments by governments and key industry players are bolstering the data center infrastructure market growth.

Data Center Infrastructure Market to Witness Strong Growth as Work from Home Becomes the New Normal amid COVID-19

The coronavirus has impacted every industry, but some of them have been hit hard, while some have witnessed strong growth. With the spread of the novel coronavirus, companies have had to shift their business processing to remote systems in a short span of time, propelling the demand for infrastructure communication, networking, and cloud-based solutions. Data centers have made digital enterprise and remote interactions more important than ever before and have made digital infrastructure highly critical. The data center industry is growing at an exponential rate, and digital companies can take benefits from this growth and fulfill their data requirements.

Many businesses across industry verticals, such as BFSI, IT and telecommunications, and retail, among others, have welcomed the work from home model to safeguard employee well-being and maintain organizational effectiveness, thus boosting the market for cloud-based solutions. Google LLC, Oracle Corporation, and IBM Corporation are some of the brands that are highly dependent on data center solutions for data storage operations and to streamline daily operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The demand for data center infrastructure solutions is expected to spike as more businesses are investing in advancing and augmenting their IT infrastructure.

Hyperscale Data Centers is a Vital Trend in the Global Market

As organizations are shifting towards cloud-based solutions, the demand for hyperscale data centers is likely to grow. Hyperscale data center facilities are larger than regular data centers and can provide more data and server resources. According to a report published by Cisco in 2020, hyperscale data center network traffic will quadruple by 2021 and will account for 55% of data center traffic by 2021. These solution providers are taking key initiatives to fulfill the growing demand for physical data systems. For instance, NTT Communications Corporation, a leading data center solution provider, launched a new hyperscale data center in Mumbai, India. The newly launched center is a 38MW facility with 375,000 square feet that can host 5,000 racks.

The rising need for public cloud services and the steady rise in social networking have accelerated investments by hyperscale operators. In the near future, these data centers will play a crucial role, mainly owing to the modularity, redundancy, and cost-effectiveness they provide. Thus, hyperscale data facilities will be a key trend in the global market during the forecast period.


Increasing Investments in Modular and Traditional Data Center Infrastructures to Drive Market Growth

With the rise in the number of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and startups adopting network infrastructure solutions, the market demand for traditional and modular data center solutions and services is expected to grow over the forecast period. Increased data consumption and rise in the amount of data collected by digital channels, coupled with the adoption of advanced technologies, have made it easy for companies to expand their databases and move the mission-critical load to data centers. In turn, key market players are heavily investing in data center projects to meet enterprise infrastructure needs. For instance,

  • In November 2020, Amazon Web Services (AWS) invested USD 2.8 billion to form a new AWS cloud in Telangana, India. With this investment, AWS will enable businesses and enterprises to run their servers and applications efficiently.

  • In November 2020, Microsoft Corporation announced investments to boost Sweden’s digital transformation and open its efficient data center in the country by 2021.

  • In August 2020, Equinix, Inc., one of the leading colocation service providers headquartered in California, announced a $161 million acquisition of two data centers by GPX Global Systems in Mumbai, India. With this acquisition, the company will be able to strengthen its footprints in the Asia Pacific data center industry.

Thus, heavy investments by service providers in the traditional data center infrastructures across the globe are driving the growth of the market.


Long Construction Cycle and High Energy Consumption to Refrain the Growth of the Market

Data centers require high initial expenditures, and it takes more than 2-3 years to complete the construction of a data center. Businesses often find it a point of concern to manage funds and manage business functionalities until the data center is fully functional. Such long construction periods of data centers might lead to delays in profits and can cause enterprises to lag behind in the market competition. Additionally, increased electricity consumption is a major factor that is impeding the market’s growth. According to the Engineering Department of Stanford University, the United States’ data center power consumption increased by 36%. Thus, increasing power usage by data center solutions and services will be a key market restraining factor.
