APAC DATA CENTER COLOCATION INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

The APAC data center colocation market size by investment to cross USD 12 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. The demand for colocation has increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Increased access to internet-related services aided by nationwide lockdowns imposed by governments across APAC has driven service providers to increase their colocation spaces. Organizations in IT services, BFSI, hospitals, and education sectors have initiated remote working for employees. Government agencies adopted cloud-based services where the confidential data of the state is stored securely. Moreover, the dependence of the education sector on the online teaching model has increased the demand for colocation services. The need for video-conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Webex, and Google Meet has experienced a steep rise. The use of online shopping has increased significantly during the COVID-19 outbreak. Colocation service providers witnessed a strong uptake for data center spaces by existing customers owing to the growth of COVID-19-induced demand. The emergence of a new business environment in COVID-19 boosts cloud service providers, and video conferencing service providers have contributed to the colocation uptake. During the COVID-19 pandemic, cloud-service providers were the major contributors as they chose to host the data in colocation data centers instead of building their own data centers in the region.

  • The adoption of VRLA batteries will continue to dominate the market; however, the market share for lithium-ion expects to grow significantly during the forecast period.
  • The procurement of standalone flywheel UPS will increase gradually, whereas the use of flywheel technology based on DRUPS will experience high growth.
  • Automation through artificial intelligence and machine learning software to manage power is likely to grow in the market.
  • The use of free cooling techniques will continue to dominate the market for evaporative coolers, free cooling chillers, air-side and water-side economizers in Japan and Northern China, along with Australia and New Zealand.

APAC DATA CENTER COLOCATION MARKET SEGMENTATION

This research report includes a detailed segmentation by:

  • Infrastructure 
  • Electrical Infrastructure 
  • Mechanical Infrastructure
  • Cooling Technique   
  • Service Type
  • Cooling Technique
  • General Construction    
  • Tier Standards 
  • Geography 

INSIGHTS BY INFRASTRUCTURE

The electrical infrastructure market is likely to cross over USD 5 billion by 2026. Generators are the largest contributor to the market revenue due to the increased adoption of DRUPS systems. The adoption of UPS systems has become critical for operators and designers as they account for around 30% of facility failures. Most data centers deploy dual-power feed to overcome power outages and human errors in the deployment or maintenance stage. The adoption of intelligent PDU solutions such as metered and monitored PDU dominates the market. The use of managed and switched PDUs is likely to grow during the forecast period. The APAC mechanical infrastructure market is growing at a CAGR of approx. 5% during 2020–2026. The need to monitor and identify cooling hotspots, temperature levels, and equipment failures has increased significantly due to the growth in power outages, thereby increasing the demand for mechanical infrastructure.

INSIGHTS BY ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Lithium-ion UPS solutions are likely to witness high adoption from colocation providers. Modular data center operators expect to procure lithium-ion UPS systems with less than 500 kW power capacity. The adoption of single-rack prefabricated data center solutions will include single-phase lithium-ion systems with a power capacity of less than 10 kVA. The adoption of DRUPS systems will continue to grow among data colocation centers in several APAC markets. Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Hong Kong have witnessed high acceptance for DRUPS systems. However, some countries are witnessing low adoption of standalone diesel generators. With the increased construction of data centers across APAC, the market for transfer switches and switchgear expects to grow during the forecast period. However, switches vary significantly based on capacity supported, cost, mean time between failures (MTBF), switching time, and design.

INSIGHTS BY MECHANICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The use of CRAC units is higher among in APAC, and most facilities use air-based cooling systems. In China & Hong Kong, several colocation facilities adopt a combination of air and water-based cooling techniques for cooling purposes. Data centers in India mainly use air-based, and few facilities operate using water-based cooling systems. However, they are not completely suitable for free cooling. Few states in the country can support free cooling for up to 1,000 hours in a year. High air pollution levels in major cities across India could not make free cooling a feasible option for data center operators. The APAC market largely depends on facilities that continue to use CRAH and CRAC DX-water-cooled solutions. Most data centers in APAC are designed with N+N CRAC or CRAH units and are now built with flexible designs in which additional or high-power capacity units can be incorporated.

INSIGHTS BY GENERAL CONSTRUCTION

The APAC data center colocation market is currently witnessing an increase in the construction of greenfield data center projects. Singapore and Hong Kong are the countries that face significant space shortages for construction. Thus, the increasing construction of data centers will bring multiple global data center construction contractors to the market, which will provide substantial opportunities for contracts and sub-contractors in the region. Several facilities in China and Hong Kong have 24/7 on-site security officers, followed by CCTV surveillance. The use of AI and ML to manage data centers has gained higher attention among colocation providers. Many enterprises deploy AI-workloads, where maintaining efficiency has become a daunting task in recent times. Moreover, the use of AI and robot-monitoring systems expect to grow in the coming years.

INSIGHTS BY SERVICE TYPE

The APAC data center retail colocation market expects to reach approx. USD 11 billion in 2026. The high demand for colocation services from developing countries is likely to drive the retail colocation market. Several enterprises and organizations shift from traditional server room infrastructure to data centers. Retail colocation services are witnessing an increase with in-house prefabricated facilities lack high-speed fiber connectivity and disaster recovery locations prerequisites. Hence, these inadequacies are likely to drive enterprises toward retail colocation services. 

The APAC data center wholesale colocation market is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 11% during 2020–2026. The adoption of wholesale colocation services is growing across the region due to the increasing demand for computing capacity from enterprises, cloud providers, big data, and IoT organizations. However, factors such as non-shared bandwidth, high-power densities, and the capability to expand the data center space when required to drive the demand for wholesale colocation services. The increasing demand for wholesale colocation services leads to the development of multiple mega and hyperscale data center projects across the region during the forecast period.

INSIGHTS BY TIER STANDARDS

The majority of China and Hong Kong data centers that were opened and under construction in 2020 are Tier III certified in terms of design and construction. Similarly, in Australia and New Zealand, most facilities are Tier III certified. 12 out of the 15 colocation facilities that opened and under construction between 2020 and June 2021 are Tier III certified, with three facilities certified as Tier IV.  Data centers in Japan are likely to adopt the Uptime Institute’s Tier III or Tier IV design with a minimum of N+N redundancy in infrastructures. Most data centers developed in 2020 are of Tier III and Tier IV standards.

INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY

China and Hong Kong expect to contribute maximum revenue to the market, with the India data center market likely to grow a promising CAGR of over 8% during 2020–2026. China & Hong Kong are the prominent markets for data center operations in APAC. The demand for the data center market is growing on account of the boom in internet users, growth in the gaming sector, the popularity of the e-commerce industry, and investments in the digitalization of enterprises. Tier-1 cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong are the major data center markets. In terms of investment, 39 colocation facilities contributed an investment of over USD 3.55 billion, which included projects that opened in 2020 and that is under construction and expected to be operational by June 2021. Shanghai is a preferred location for the colocation area under development, followed by Langfang and Beijing.
