The top three drivers and trends propelling the data center construction market in Southeast Asia are discussed below:

Increased adoption of cloud-based services in the Southeast Asia market

The digitalization of business operations is driving the demand for cloud-based service adoption in Southeast Asia. Among these countries, Singapore is the only mature cloud market in Southeast Asia. Most of the cloud data center deployments are carried out through data center colocation facilities in Southeast Asia. The global service providers are also establishing a physical presence in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam to gain market dominance.

For instance, Alibaba established its first facility in Indonesia in 2018 owing to the increased demand for its services.

In Southeast Asia, telecommunication service providers such as Singtel, NTT Communication, PLDT, and Telkom Indonesia have a strong presence in the cloud market. These providers also offer cloud connectivity solutions through their data centers for customers using cloud platforms of global providers to extend their reach in the market.

IaaS and SaaS are the largest contributors to the market revenue as compared to PaaS.
