Data Center Colocation Market size is set to surpass USD 145 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The growing penetration of compute-intensive technologies, such as AI & IoT, is driving the market demand for edge data centers that offer faster data processing services to customers. A rapid increase in computing power and the adoption of IoT devices have encouraged market leaders to deploy data centers to the network edge to cater to the demands of IoT and AI applications. Edge data centers enable data to be analyzed and processed closer to the customer’s location, i.e., the point of data creation. The edge data center colocation technique reduces latency as data does not travel over longer distances. Furthermore, increasing demand for edge computing solutions that ensure faster processing speeds will support the edge data center colocation business growth.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic supported the data center colocation market expansion in 2020. The strict lockdown measures imposed by government organizations increased the utilization of digital services such as online grocery shopping, contactless payments, and virtual meetings. The IT & telecom sector is under stress due to the sudden transition to remote working and e-learning technologies by corporate & academic institutions. High-quality data center colocation services are crucial for the seamless implementation of these technologies to ensure the uninterrupted interconnection of remote devices. This factor coupled with the growing acceptance of digital payment technologies will boost the demand for data management solutions, in turn, supporting the industry growth.
