In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this Global Hyperscale Data Center Market Report
The hyperscale data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 2% during the period 2019–2025.
The global hyperscale data center market is primarily dominated by colocation, internet, and cloud data center service providers. There are also many cloud-based services providers that depend on the construction of facilities by colocation providers to colocate space on a wholesale basis. This will aid cloud providers operating worldwide to establish cloud regions, thereby serving customers quickly and efficiently. In terms of construction, hyperscale operators are investing high capital in the market annually. Also, colocation providers are building hyperscale facilities spanning over 100,000 square feet with a rack power density of up to 50 kW.
The rapid increase in the spread of COVID-19 in March 2020, across Asian and European countries and the US will result in production and procurement delays till Q2 2020. The construction projects that were expected to be completed between March to June 2020, might be postponed by up to 3 months, depending on the return of the construction workforce to full strength and resumption of full-scale supply chain processes. The pandemic might affect new hyperscale projects that are likely to get underway in the Q2 2020, resulting a declining market scenario for 2020.
The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the hyperscale data center market during the forecast period:
- AI Boosts Liquid Immersion & Direct-to-Chip Cooling Adoption
- Increasing Deployment of Software-Defined Data Center
- Increased Adoption of OCPs & Hyperscale-specific Infrastructure
The study considers the present scenario of the hyperscale data center market and its market dynamics for the period 2019?2025. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The study offers both the demand and supply aspect of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent ones operating in the market.
Hyperscale Data center market Segmentation
The global hyperscale data center market research report includes a detailed segmentation by IT infrastructure, electrical infrastructure, mechanical infrastructure, general construction, and geography. The demand for servers suitable for cloud computing environments will continue to grow as service providers expand their presence globally. There will be an increase in demand for servers with multicore processors, and memory will grow as the average number of virtual machines per physical server continues to rise. The US market recorded a growth of around 302% in the server market revenue with the shipment growing at around 40% in 2029. The increase in number of OCP-Ready facility will increase the procurement of ODM infrastructure among enterprise hyperscale data center operators.
Innovations in the OCP community have resulted in the launch of 12VDC UPS. These UPS systems constitute a rack architecture, where one UPS rack supports 6 IT racks in the hyperscale data center environment. The procurement of lithium-ion UPS systems will continue to grow among hyperscale data center operators to reduce the OPEX through low maintenance.
The use of indirect evaporative coolers and air/water-side economizers will continue to grow in countries that experience cold climatic conditions for a minimum of 5,000 hours per year. Data centers in Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, and Africa are likely to prefer chilled water systems or a combination of both air and water-based cooling techniques. The use of dual water feeds in facilities with on-site water treatment plants is gaining popularity across hyperscale deployments.
Data centers established in South Western US are incorporated with energy-efficient water-based cooling systems. The on-site water treatment plants that save a minimum of 30% of the water consumed.
In the US, a majority of states provide tax incentives that includes sales tax, property tax and job-based tax incentives. To attract hyperscale investment, several states are likely to offer tax incentives during the forecast period. In Western Europe, the growing demand for data centers has increased revenue opportunities for multiple contractors and sub-contractors. However, a major challenge for several contractors in the region is the lack of skilled workforces to manage multiple hyperscale data center projects.
Most projects are built in collaboration with global data center construction contractors and local sub-contractors. China will lead greenfield data center construction compared to Hong Kong, where brownfield developments is popular due to the space shortage during the forecast period.
