The increased focus on edge computing and the rising need for real-time data access in remote locations are the major factors driving micro data center market growth. The organizations are dependent on modular solutions that can be easily located at the edge of the network to reduce the latency level, improving the network connectivity for data transferring & processing. Micro facilities offer several advantages, such as mobility, cost-effectiveness, power efficiency, and enhanced networking & connectivity, encouraging businesses to implement these solutions at edge locations. Moreover, the rapid deployment of these smaller or containerized (modular) facilities allows organizations to scale up their business processes during high computing requirements. The traditional IT facilities require over a month to be deployed at the network locations while the micro facilities require around a week to be installed at the needed locations. Such factors will positively impact the market growth.
 

Moreover, the rise in the demand for cost-effective, scalable, and customizable IT solutions from SMEs is driving the micro data center market. These enterprises are dependent on IT technologies that offer less operational, maintenance, and installation costs to reduce their overall capital expenditure. Several SMEs are installing portable IT solutions, which consume less space and power and can be placed at any corner of a business facility. Furthermore, rapid business expansion and increasing data storage requirements are encouraging SMEs to incorporate additional networking solutions such as servers and storage devices. The micro solutions allow these enterprises to implement IT technologies based on the business requirements and are available in different power configurations ranging from 1kW to 100kW and rack size from 16U to 48U that can be selected based on the cost structure, IT requirements, and business size of SMEs.

Increasing technological advancements and innovations for developing cost-effective and energy-efficient data center solutions are predicted to drive the micro data center market growth. In 2018, solutions accounted for 80% of the overall industry share. The all-in-one facilities consist of integrated power, cooling, and networking technologies, that reduce the burden and additional costs of purchasing different components for the IT environment. The fully integrated solution helps in saving money on hardware costs in addition to removing the need for in-room cooling solutions and maximizing network up-time. The micro facilities consume less power and energy in comparison with the traditional IT equipment and offer a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of less than 1.5, reducing the overall power consumption of the business facility. Additionally, the integration of DCIM and environment monitoring tools into the facilities aids in managing the efficiency and power consumption of different components. Delta Power Solutions supplies Delta InfraSuite that offers several advantages such as energy saving with PUE less than 1.4, quick deployment, and space saving for self-contained facilities.
 

Micro Data Center Market, By Application

The IT & telecom sector accounts for the majority of the micro data center market share and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 24% from 2019 to 2025. Rise in the installation of self-contained and modular facilities by telecom operators is a major factor driving the market growth. Telecommunication companies require low latency and scalable solutions to enhance network connectivity. With the increase in the penetration of 5G technologies, the companies are more concerned toward the network and internet bandwidth quality. Companies are investing heavily to improve the network infrastructure that is compatible with the 5G connectivity. The adoption of edge computing solutions allows businesses to provide network connectivity close to the users with lesser latency issues, augmenting the market demand. For instance, in October 2017, Edge Micro announced its plan to develop tower-based micro facilities for improving the experience of video streaming and gaming. The company developed a containerized six-rack facility that supports 48kW of IT capacity, deployed at the base of a cell tower.
