MARKET INSIGHTS

The United Arab Emirates data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.90% from 2022 to 2027 and is expected to reach USD 1.72 billion by 2027 from USD 1.09 billion in 2021. The United Arab Emirates is among the top data center markets in the Middle East. The country has the presence of local and global operators such as Equinix, Khazna Data Centers, Gulf Data Hub, and Etisalat, among others. The high internet and social media penetration across the country driven by COVID-19, deployment of 5G services, and better and improved inland connectivity make UAE an attractive market for investors.

Dubai is the primary location for data center investment in the UAE, followed by Abu Dhabi and other cities such as Fujairah. Introducing the Personal Data Protection Law in the country will protect the confidentiality of the citizens' data and further boost the country's market. The Energy Strategy 2050, to achieve net-zero carbon emissions in the country and increase investment towards renewable energy to power facilities with clean and green energy, will likely continue during the forecast period. Developing Special Economic Zones (SEZs), Free Trade Zones (FTZs), and smart city investments will also boost the United Arab Emirates data center market.

The market includes about 14 unique third-party data center service providers operating over 20 facilities. In addition, the country also possesses several on-premise data centers owned by the government and local enterprises. The country is currently witnessing investments in 13 facilities, which are expected to be operational in the next 2-3 years.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • The United Arab Emirates Data Center Market has over 25 operational colocation data centers. Most colocation centers are being designed according to Tier III standards. For instance, Huawei Technologies and Moro Hub are developing a facility in Dubai, which will be certified as Tier III by Uptime Institute.
  • The COVID-19 impact and remote working have led to an increase in data generation at local levels. In addition, migration from on-premises to colocation, cloud, and managed services will boost the DC market in the United Arab Emirates.
  • Khazna Data Centers is among the country's top and most significant operators and has planned to increase its IT load capacity from 40 MW to 200 MW by 2023.
  • The country is also witnessing improvement in submarine and inland connectivity. For instance, 2Africa will connect UAE with other countries such as India, Saudi Arabia, Spain, the UK, Oman, and other countries once deployed.
  • Significant adoption of 5G services, along with the development of smart cities in the UAE, will fuel data traffic and further grow the demand for more data centers in the country.
