The growing need for reducing the IT expenditure is one of the factors driving the growth of the data center colocation
The global data center colocation size is expected to grow from USD 31.52 billion in 2017 to USD 62.30 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.60%. There is an increasing need for reducing the IT expenditure spent on commissioning mission-critical data center facilities. Data center colocation services provide the required scalability and cost-effectiveness for managing the daily data requirement. This acts as one of the major drivers of the data center colocation market. However, high initial costs may hold back the end-users from adopting these solutions.
Retail colocation is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
The retail colocation type in the data center colocation market is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period. Retail colocation provides power, space, cooling, cabling, and support services. It also provides flexibility in terms of IT infrastructure, and therefore proves advantageous for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs). This utility of retail colocation is expected to drive its market share in the global data center colocation.
Large enterprises are estimated to have the largest market share during the forecast period
The data center colocation end-users include SMEs and large enterprises, wherein large enterprises are expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period. Large enterprises are inclined toward adopting colocation services, as they are able to lease large spaces on lease and meet their power and computational requirements. Moreover, colocation services help large enterprises to have complete control over the data center infrastructure. These services also aid in business continuity due to their disaster recovery benefits. This is expected to fuel the data center colocation market during the forecast period.
North America is expected to have the largest market in 2017, whereas Asia Pacific (APAC) is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period
North America is expected to capture the largest market share in 2017 and the trend is likely to continue until the near future. This region is growing due to the presence of a large number of data centers and it has witnessed a rapid adoption due to the availability of comprehensive solutions. On the other hand, the data center colocation market in APAC is expected to witness an exponential growth and projected to be one of the fastest-growing regions in the global data center colocation market. This is mainly due to the increasing volumes of data center traffic in countries, such as India, Australia, and China.
