The global green data centre market was valued at USD 70.14 billion in 2023. The market is projected to be worth USD 81.12 billion in 2024 and reach USD 279.54 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.7% during the forecast period (2024-2032). A green data center is a service facility that hosts servers to store, manage, and distribute data using energy-efficient technologies. The data centres do not comprise outdated systems and use newer, more resourceful technologies. With the growing demand for data storage, operators have witnessed an increase in the deployment of power and cooling systems. In such cases, green or sustainable data centres are a solution for a greener future.

The growing need for data storage and storage is the main factor driving the need for green data centers. According to Huawei,  global data center demand is expected to increase 3-10 times over the forecast period. Green data centres offer a practical and environmentally friendly solution in terms of data storage and reduced energy consumption but with a positive outlook for data centre storage needs and an increase in new construction due to regulations. Thus, the need to reduce operating expenses is expected to increase in the coming years. Additionally, the rise of machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to increase the power consumption of data centres around the world. This is another driver in data centre environments, and the market is expected to grow over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic led many companies worldwide to make progressive adjustments while operating in the new normal. With the growing popularity of work-from-home culture, hyperscalers, such as Google, Microsoft, AWS, and others, constantly strived to meet the spike in demand for cloud infrastructure. A large amount of data was generated due to remote work, online learning, and increased consumption of digital technologies. This led to a higher demand for data centres to support the growing online activities, including e-commerce, video conferencing, and OTT streaming.

Green Data Center Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Renewable Energy Resources to Reduce Carbon Footprint will Bolster Market Growth

The growing need for energy-efficient infrastructure and increasing purchase of renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, hydroelectric, and geothermal energy will drive the market growth. By relying on clean energy, sustainable data centers can significantly reduce their carbon emissions as compared to conventional data centers that heavily rely on fossil fuels.

Moreover, these data centers often seek certifications from recognized environmental standards, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). These certifications encourage data centres to combat carbon emissions and promote environmental sustainability within the IT industry. Companies are deploying energy-efficient green technologies in their data centres to grab the untapped potential of sustainability. For instance,

  • In September 2022, Nxtra (a subsidiary of Bharati Airtel) joined Bloom Energy to install a fuel cell with a low environmental impact in the Karnataka data center. The company aims to reduce its carbon footprint through a cleaner, hydrogen-ready fuel supply.

Green Data Center Market Growth Factors

Rapid Emergence of Artificial Intelligence in Power & Cooling Technologies to Drive Market Growth

Using emerging technologies, such as Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), in green data centres aids in automating various processes and reducing the carbon footprint. With digital transformation gaining momentum across industries, the demand for data services is increasing rapidly. To cater to such demands, data center operators constantly search for efficient power, more space, and a skilled workforce. The operators are addressing these problems by deploying AI in their infrastructure coupled with IoT and ML. AI-based robots can predict power outages, achieve higher performance metrics, and reduce maintenance costs. In addition, digital twins with AI and ML aid data centres in reducing their carbon footprint.

For instance, in May 2023, Huawei launched the Fan Wall Chilled Water Cooling Solution and PowerPOD 3.0 at the Huawei Green Data Center Summit. The company launched Artificial intelligence (AI) -based power and cooling products in the Asia Pacific market that aid the data centers in the region in improving their sustainability.

Thus, those mentioned above are some market drivers that will aid in the adoption of green data centres.


Cost Considerations Associated with Initial Investment & Modifying Existing Infrastructure to Impede Market Progress

The initial investment in building a sustainable data center with energy-efficient technologies is higher than that of a traditional one. The energy costs of these data centers exceed the overall investments in the IT infrastructure, making it difficult for small and mid-sized data center operators to deploy such solutions.

Moreover, data centers are prone to physical and digital security risks, which is concerning to the service providers. For instance, a Mimecast Threat Intelligence Center report stated that between January and March 2020, the monthly global volumes of cybercrime spam increased by 26%, and impersonation fraud detections increased by 30%. Moreover, around 115,000 COVID-19-related suspicious spoof domains were detected during the pandemic.

However, companies are investing in these data centers owing to the long-term payback of initial investments.

Green Data Center Market Segmentation Analysis
