The COVID-19 pandemic fueled infrastructure adoption among internet-related service providers in Q1 and Q2 2020. Hyperscale operators procured ODM infrastructure, which grew by over 10% across Europe in 2020. UPS systems are the highest contributors to market investment. In 2020, the adoption of lithium-ion UPS systems grew considerably. Most data centers operating in Europe are adopting N+N redundant infrastructure. The adoption of generator systems with a capacity of over 2 MW is high due to the increased construction of large and hyperscale facilities. Data center operators have adopted innovative and energy-efficient cooling infrastructure solutions to reduce power consumption by up to 50%. This is expected to grow during the forecast period as market vendors are introducing innovative high-efficient cooling systems.

INSIGHTS BY IT INFRASTRUCTURE

The server infrastructure market has witnessed strong growth over the last two years. Server systems based on x86 architecture dominated the Europe data center market share with over 85% in 2020. Most modern operators adopt the server infrastructure that matches workload requirements. The demand for servers suitable for cloud environments is likely to grow during the forecast period. In 2020, the increased adoption of all-flash storage arrays and a sizable contribution from hybrid storage arrays is expected to aid storage systems. The growth of flash storage systems is boosted by high-performance operations that require strong input/output capabilities. The increase in bandwidth requirements, data center consolidation, and virtualization drive the demand for ethernet port switches, controllers, and adaptors. 25/50 GbE switches are likely to experience considerable growth during the forecast period.

INSIGHTS BY ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Several facilities have adopted flexible designs to facilitate dual power feeds, 2N redundant UPS and PDU systems, and N+1 generators. The market share of metered and monitored rack PDU solutions has observed a remarkable increase in Western Europe. In the Nordic region, the deployment of hyperscale facilities is likely to fuel the procurement of 48V DC UPS systems. Most facilities in the region are powered by renewable energy with grid stability of over 95%. This reduces the number of redundant generator systems, encouraging 2N UPS system installation. Most data centers in central and eastern Europe are designed as Tier III standards with a minimum of N+1 redundancy in UPS and generator systems. The use of renewable energy sources to power data centers is low in the region. However, their utilization is expected to grow during the forecast period.

INSIGHTS BY MECHANICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Several data centers in Western Europe support free cooling systems, including adiabatic coolers, evaporative coolers, and free cooling chiller systems. The use of water-based cooling techniques includes water-treatment plants and systems. Most data center operators procure 45U–52U rack cabinets. However, the procurement of 42U racks is declining in the Europe data center market.

Most data centers in the Nordic region use free cooling techniques. The market facilitates free cooling for over 8,400 hours per year, and the use of free cooling systems is expected to add revenue to the market during the forecast period. The use of lake/river/ocean water to cool data center facilities in the Nordic region is likely to increase revenues for water-based cooling solutions.

All Central & Eastern European countries support free cooling of over 6,000 hours per year. Many data centers have been equipped with in-direct evaporative/adiabatic coolers. A few facilities have also adopted water/glycol-based cooling systems and highly efficient DX-based CRAC systems to cool the facility. In Central & Eastern Europe, the ASP of rack products is lower than in Western Europe due to local vendors' dominance. There is a high penetration of taller racks of 45U, 46U, 48U, and 50U among enterprises in the region.
