Global Data Center Investment Trends and Growth Opportunities

·2-min read

Investments in data centers are increasing, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study provides an overview of the global data center industry, analyzing technological and investment trends shaping the industry’s growth.

New York, July 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Data Center Investment Trends and Growth Opportunities" -

The key factors driving growth include the rising popularity of hybrid colocation and hyperscale data centers, the emphasis on sustainability, the role of emerging technologies, and the data boom created by the proliferation of internet-enabled devices. The study’s analysis is segmented by type (colocation, hyperscale cloud, and enterprise) and region (Asia-Pacific, the Americas, and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa). The study expects investments from leading hyperscale cloud providers to continue at a healthy pace over the forecast period from 2022 to 2031 (with 2021 as the base year). The growing need for hyperscale capacity from public cloud providers and over-the-top media content is forecast to fuel the colocation demand. The pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation of enterprises, creating higher demand for storage and compute capabilities. While data center providers invest heavily in building new capacity to meet demand, deploying emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning encourages providers to invest in new data center designs for enhanced efficiencies. Industry competition to address global requirements from carrier-neutral and telecommunication service providers has also intensified. The advent of internet-enabled devices and industrial sensors expands data creation and, subsequently, the requirements for data transfer and storage, resulting in global investments in data centers to process and store information. There is also a wave of investments from special purpose acquisition companies and marquee investors in the industry. Private equity and sovereign wealth investors are essential to enabling data center providers to build new hyperscale facilities and acquire existing data centers. Private equity firms are keen to invest in large-scale facilities (a capacity of at least 50 megawatts) and builds in relatively new markets. The study anticipates North America and Asia-Pacific as the most active hubs for data center growth. In 2021, North America was the largest market for data center investments. With robust data center construction and data creation activities, Asia-Pacific is expected to overtake North America by the end of 2026 and register more than 40% of the total market share. India, in particular, has strong potential to contribute to the data center industry growth.
