The Modular data center market size is expected to grow from USD 25.8 billion in 2023 to USD 81.2 billion by 2030 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.8% during the forecast period. The market has excellent growth opportunities, such as deployment in disaster-prone areas, demand from colocation providers, and demand for data centers in space and underwater.

“By component, the solutions segment to have a higher market share during the forecast period.“
The requirement for flexible cabinets to hold this equipment will only grow as more businesses construct their data centers to exact performance and cost goals. The growing data needs of end users are beyond the capabilities of the current IT infrastructure. Adaptable and adequate infrastructure is desperately needed to meet the performance requirements of modern data centers. Managers can store, cool, power, manage, and secure essential IT equipment with modular data centers and enclosures. Major market vendors offer data centers of different sizes and provide features like cable and airflow management accessories to support enterprise and data center requirements.

“By solutions, the all-in-one modules segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. “
The all-in-one module is a highly integrated containerized data center facility for enterprise data management, oil exploration, and disaster relief. It is a temporary module usually implemented in cases wherein data center mobility is a concern, as it comprises modules with cooling, power, and IT systems built inside a single container. These containerized modules are portable and energy-efficient and provide on-site, ready-to-deploy solutions, reducing installation costs and time. They also enable scalability and flexibility to the IT infrastructure to adjust to the design and size for future deployments. This advantage of the all-in-one module, wherein organizations can implement scale-out infrastructure, is expected to fuel the market for modular data centers. Modular data centers provide exceptional value for organizations looking to implement an edge computing strategy by combining power, cooling, and IT infrastructure into a single solution.

“By vertical, the BFSI segment is projected to record the highest market share during the forecast period.”
The BFSI industry is rapidly adopting electronic banking, paperless storage, and virtualization, which has increased the demand for safe, resilient, cost-effective, and energy-efficient modular data center solutions. As the BFSI industry deals with vast amounts of customers’ data regularly, it requires reliable IT equipment to store and manage it. Reliable data centers must offer uninterrupted financial services and improve the response time for running end-user applications. Modular data centers provide high computing power, reduce computational time for BFSI institutions, and ensure business continuity by focusing on management, scalability, efficiency, and energy efficiency. Therefore, modular data center solutions are essential in minimizing business continuity risk and providing cost-effective solutions in the BFSI sector.
