MARKET INSIGHTS

The Middle East and Africa data center colocation market is estimated to reach USD 2.61 billion by 2027 from USD 1.58 billion in 2021, growing with a CAGR of 8.68% during 2022-2027. Some of the significant factors that are acting as a factor for the growth of the data center colocation market in the Middle East & Africa include increased digitalization initiatives across several countries, cloud service providers colocating the data centers, growth in connectivity, and others.

The market has witnessed the entry of several global colocation operators through the acquisition of local colocation operators. For instance, in August 2022, Digital Realty announced the completion of the acquisition of African colocation operator Teraco Data Environments. The region is witnessing significant initiatives for connectivity with growth in submarine cable deployments. In the Middle East & Africa, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Israel, Turkey, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, Morocco, and Djibouti are some of the countries with more submarine cable connectivity, which connects Americas, European, and Asian countries boosting the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • COVID-19 has been a boon across the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market, accelerating digital transformation initiatives across several countries, increasing data center service demand, and driving the utilization of data center capacity among the colocation facilities.
  • Some colocation data centers are developing wholesale colocation space in their facilities across several countries to support growing colocation demand from cloud service providers such as Microsoft, Google, AWS, and government entities. Governments across the region are aiding the growth in the construction of centers by offering several tax benefits.
  • The computing power in data centers has grown significantly due to increased demand for cloud services, big data, and IoT, which has increased rack power density. The increase in data bandwidth and high-performance computing will drive the operators to procure efficient infrastructure to manage any downtime in the data centers.

MARKET TRENDS

COVID-19 Impact on Data Center Investments
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for data center services in the Middle East & Africa has increased with the heightened access to internet-related services aided by nationwide lockdowns imposed by governments in March 2020. Online shopping, even post-COVID-19, has increased the demand for online platforms compared to traditional shopping. In Turkey, there was an 85% increase in online shopping YOY, and the e-commerce sector in Turkey expects to reach over USD 50 million by the end of 2021. For instance, Carrefour, a retail grocery company, witnessed a sales increase of around 50% in Q1 2020. Such factors are becoming a major contributor to the growth of the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market.

Smart City Initiatives Across Several Countries Aiding the Growth of Digitalization
In the Middle East and Africa, several companies and governments have taken the initiative to invest in the development of smart cities. The development of smart cities is aiding the growth in digitalization and further driving the demand for data center construction. Some smart city initiatives in the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market include the Dubai South project and Zayed Smart City Project. Several cities are being developed as smart cities, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Cape Town, Lagos, Nairobi, Bezeq, and others.

5G Deployments Will Drive Edge Data Center Investments
The Middle East & African countries are working toward adopting digital transformation to attract foreign investments. 5G network deployment fuels the digital transformation, IoT, smart cities, and the fourth industrial revolution. Some telecom operators in the Middle East & Africa have deployed 5G network services, and some are in 5G trials. The Middle East & African countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and South Africa commercially deployed 5G network services.

Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran, Nigeria, Kenya, Angola, and Uganda are other the Middle East & African countries in 5G planning and are yet to deploy commercial services during the forecast period. Rapid investments in 5G technology and their deployment will increase the number of connected devices, leading to the generation of a substantial quantity of data, thereby increasing investments in edge data centers in the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market.

SEGMENTATION ANALYSIS

  • The colocation services segment in the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market is dominated by retail colocation with a market share of 67%. It is expected to grow with a CAGR of 10.99%; it is supported by construction from several local and global colocation operators. Although the presence of cloud service providers is steadily growing, that is expected to boost the wholesale colocation in the region. Some countries in the market are witnessing growth in demand from cloud service providers. Hence, the wholesale colocation space is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
  • Most centers operating in the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market are adopting N+N redundant infrastructure, while most centers are designing facilities with space for installing up to 2N redundant UPS systems to cope with diverse feed designs of the facility and frequent power outages. In most Tier III facilities, UPS systems are adopted as N+1 redundant systems, while other facilities have installations of N+N UPS systems.
  • Edge facility deployment will include single-phase lithium-ion UPS and monitored and switched PDUs. Therefore, emerging edge facilities will majorly boost the Middle East and Africa data center colocation market growth.

REGIONAL ANALYSIS

  • The Middle East and Africa data center colocation market attracted investments from cloud service providers such as Google, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Oracle, and Tencent across the Middle East. Major cloud service providers are expanding their presence in the region during the forecast period, which drives the demand for wholesale colocation services in the region.
  • Regarding investment, Abu Dhabi is the preferred location, with major investments from colocation, enterprise, and government entities. In 2021, Dubai witnessed investments from colocation service providers such as Equinix, Moro Hub, and Gulf Data Hub.
