The rise in the demand for energy-efficient and portable IT infrastructure facilities is driving the modular data center market growth. Several businesses are incorporating prefabricated and containerized facilities that streamline the IT operations and offer enhanced performance. These facilities provide high power and cooling efficiencies to businesses in comparison with large-scale facilities. Confined spaces of prefabricated facilities are easier to cool than large IT rooms, as they have a built-in aisle containment that minimizes hot & cold air mixing. Cooling enables operators to maximize the capacity of their IT space. The manufacturers in the market are developing sustainable products by incorporating energy-efficient technologies. For instance, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is offering FusionModule1000B that includes integrated power systems and energy-saving air-cooled or water-cooled in-row cooling system. Similarly, SGI is offering Ice Cube modular IT facility that helps businesses to reduce the cooling costs.

The proliferation of digitalization coupled with the increasing number of businesses has led to a rise in the number of data centers globally. There is a growing trend of adoption of modular facilities owing to various advantages offered. The rising need to reduce the complexity of conventional facilities is paving way for the introduction of prefabricated data centers that facilitate scalability and easy deployment, boosting the modular data center market growth. The mobility of facilities allows consumers to relocate their systems instead of dismantling them and constructing new facilities at new locations. Prefabricated modules address the customers’ capacity requirements with a fast deployment time. Additionally, these facilities provide high density, low Power Use Effectiveness (PUE), and significant cost & time saving owing to the relatively low time needed in deploying them. Such factors are positively impacting the market growth.
