Global Colocation Data Center Market is valued at approximately USD 57.02 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 13.30% over the forecast period 2022-2029. A colocation data center market refers to a facility where businesses can rent space for their IT equipment, including servers, storage devices, and networking equipment. The data center provides a secure and reliable environment with power, cooling, and internet connectivity to ensure the smooth operation of the equipment. In a colocation data center, businesses typically rent a specific amount of space, such as a rack or a cage, and manage their own equipment. The data center provider is responsible for the physical infrastructure, including the building, power, cooling, and security. The major driving factors for the Global Colocation Data Center Market are increasing demand for data storage and the growing adoption of cloud adoption.

The demand of data centres and colocation services has increased due to the increasing volume of data coming from social media and Over-The-Top (OTT) networks. Social media users are becoming more and more engaged, which is resulting in an exponential increase in the amount of data being collected on these platforms. For instance, in 2020 there were roughly 2.74 billion monthly active Facebook users, up from 2.38 billion in 2019. The amount of people using social media is predicted to increase even more in the upcoming years, which is predicted to increase demand for colocation facilities. The Covid-19 pandemic has also caused a rise in OTT and streaming service usage, which has increased data volumes and is anticipated to drive market growth. Along with this, data generation is rising which is driving the growth of the colocation data centers over the forecast period. For instance, according to a report by IDC, the global data sphere (the amount of data created, captured, and replicated each year) is projected to grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes by 2025. Similarly, in 2019, IBM announced that it had built the world’s highest-capacity tape storage system, capable of storing 330 terabytes of uncompressed data on a single cartridge. Moreover, Green initiatives by government and rising digital transformation is creating lucrative growth opportunity for the market over the forecast period 2022-2029. However, the high cost of Colocation Data Center stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.
