MARKET INSIGHTS

The Canada data center market size will witness investments of USD 9.04 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 10.26% during the forecast period. Furthermore, the region is also witnessing growth in connectivity with submarine cables connecting major locations. Around five submarine cables are under development and are expected to be operational during the forecast period.

The Canada data center market presents a compelling landscape shaped by robust infrastructure, government support, and strategic positioning. This abstract overviews key factors driving the market’s growth, including increasing demand for cloud services and data storage. Major hubs like Toronto and Montreal are hotspots for major investments in this tech space. Furthermore, the increasing investment in renewable energy, from solar and wind energy to power data centers, is a major attraction for Canada's industry players. For instance, STACK Infrastructure launched its first facility in Toronto, Canada, powered by 100% renewable energy.

The low electricity pricing, abundant renewable energy, free cooling solutions, availability of tax incentives, and improved connectivity with the U.S. and other countries make the Canada data center market attractive to investors. Furthermore, QScale, a new company, announced its plan to build at least three facilities in Quebec City powered by renewable energy and focused on AI. The facilities are expected to be online during the forecast period. 

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Canada has around 117 operational colocation data centers. Most colocation data centers are being developed according to Tier III standards. The Canada data center market has the presence of some local and global operators such as Cologix, Equinix, Digital Realty, eStruxture Data Centers, Urbacon Data Centre Solutions, and Vantage Data Centers, among others.
  • The increase in the adoption of cloud-based services in the country is growing the establishment of cloud regions by major cloud services providers such as Microsoft, Oracle, Google, Amazon Web Services, and Tencent Cloud.
  • Increasing investments in prime locations such as Montreal and Toronto will lead to an increase in land prices. Such factors may propel operators to shift their focus to emerging locations such as Calgary, Quebec City, and others during the forecast period.
  • The hyperscale self-built investment by Microsoft and AWS will likely increase the power capacity in the Canada data center market during the forecast period.
  • The deployment of 5G networks will boost the region's digital economy and lead to a higher demand for high-bandwidth networking infrastructure. The adoption of Software Defined Networking (SDN) is likely to increase owing to smart city initiatives carried out by government agencies.
