Data Center Market Market Report and Growth Opportunities 2021-2031 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Data Center Investment Trends and Growth Opportunities” report has been added to’s The offer of

The study expects investments by major cloud providers to continue at a healthy pace during the forecast period from 2022 to 2031 (with 2021 as the base year).

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

Key factors driving growth include the growing popularity of hybrid data centers and hybrid data centers, emphasis on sustainability, the role of emerging technologies, and the data boom created by the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices. The study analysis is segmented by type (colocation, hyperscale cloud and enterprise) and region (Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe, Middle East and Africa).

The growing need for high-end capacity from public cloud providers and higher media content is expected to drive demand for co-location. The pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation of enterprises, creating higher demand for storage and computing capabilities.

As data center providers invest heavily in building new capacity to meet demand, the deployment of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning encourages providers to invest in new data center designs for improved efficiency. Industry competition to address global demand from neutral service providers and telecommunications has also intensified.

The advent of Internet-enabled devices and industrial sensors expands data creation and, subsequently, data transfer and storage requirements, resulting in global investment in data centers to process and store information. There is also a wave of investment from special purpose buyout companies and from marquee investors in the industry.

Private equity and sovereign wealth investors are essential to enable data center providers to build new high-scale facilities and acquire existing data centers. Private equity firms are inclined to invest in large-scale facilities (a capacity of at least 50 megawatts) and construction in relatively new markets.

The study predicts North America and Asia-Pacific as the most active centers for data center growth. In 2021, North America was the largest market for data center investments. With 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 growth of the data center industry.
