Data Centre infrastructure market is projected to reach USD 100bn by 2027
Published by : Industrial Automation
The rising levels of data traffic have placed an immense power burden on data centres on account of the significant jump in the usage of IoT devices.
According to a recent study from market research firm Global Market Insights, The need for data centre infrastructure market management among organisations to offer higher energy-efficiencies will be positively driven by the influx of cloud computing, Big Data, and AI solutions. The surge in internet infrastructure activities has led to the generation of large quantities of data by individuals and connected devices.
The rising levels of data traffic have placed an immense power burden on data centres on account of the significant jump in the usage of IoT devices. This has in turn pushed data centre operators to increasingly adopt efficient and cost-effective data centre infrastructure solutions.
As per a report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the global data centre infrastructure market could reach USD 100 billion in annual revenue by 2027.
Owing to the adoption of data analytics, cloud computing, and emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, and IoT, hyper-scale data centres have seen huge demand lately. Big tech giants like Facebook, Amazon, and Google are investing heavily in the construction of hyper-scale data centre facilities.
These data centre infrastructures need high capability and modernized infrastructure for supporting critical IT equipment and offer enhanced data protection. High-density networking servers in these data centres demand security management, power and cooling combinations for enabling energy-efficient operation.
Increasing government initiatives regarding the safety of customer data are encouraging businesses to establish their own data centre facilities in the Asia Pacific. For instance, China's Cybersecurity Law states data localisation requirements on Critical Information Infrastructure Operators (CIIOs). The Law guides network operators to analyse, store and process customer data within the country. With this, it is estimated that the Asia Pacific data centre infrastructure market may speculate sturdy progress over the forecast period. Multiple initiatives such as Smart Cities, Made in China, and Digital India, may also boost the adoption of IoT and cloud computing in the region.
Mentioned below are some of the key trends driving data centre infrastructure market expansion:
1. Growing demand for hyperscale data centres
Expansion of hyperscale data centres owing to the usage of cloud computing, data analytics, and emerging technologies like IoT, AI, and machine learning is fuelling industry outlook. Hyperscale data centres need high capability and modernised infrastructure to improve protection and support the critical IT equipment.
High-density networking servers in hyperscale data centres demand cooling, security management and power solutions in order to facilitate energy-efficient operation. Major cloud service providers like Facebook Inc., Amazon, and Google LLC are making huge investments in the construction of hyperscale data centre facilities.
2. Increasing adoption of data centre services
The service segment is anticipated to account for a substantial market share on account of surging demand for scalable infrastructure for supporting high-end applications. Data centre services such as monitoring, maintenance, consulting, and design help operators to better manage data centres and their equipment.
Enterprises often need professional, skilled and managed service providers for the management of systems and optimization of data centre infrastructure to obtain efficiencies. Professional service providers having the required technical knowledge and expertise in IT management and data centre operations allow streamlining of business processes. These services help to significantly decrease the total cost of operations and maintenance of IT equipment.
3. Robust usage of cooling solutions
There is a proliferation of AI, driverless cars, and robots which is encouraging data centre service providers to move strategic IT assets nearer to the network edge. These edge data centres are in turn rapidly shifting towards liquid cooling solutions to run real applications having full-featured hardware and lessen energy consumption for the high-density applications.
Key companies operating in the data centre infrastructure market are Panduit Corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, Black Box Corporation, Vertiv Group Co, ClimateWorx International, Eaton Corporation, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, Cisco Systems Inc, ABB Ltd, Schneider Electric SE, Degree Controls Inc, and Dell Inc.
