Market Growth Enablers
Market Growth Restraints
Market Opportunities & Trends
The growing adoption of converged and hyper-converged solutions and virtualization is likely to boost the rack power density to an average of 8-10kW during the forecast period. Leading operators are developing innovative designs that can support the growth of the rack power density and meet dynamic consumer demands over the next few years. The integration of facilities with power and cooling infrastructure that supports rack density up to 40 kW and liquid immersion cooling that support density up to 200 kW will transform the APAC colocation market.The APAC generators market will continue to grow because of the increased construction of large and mega facilities in the region. The adoption of Diesel Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (DRUPS) systems is popular in the region as they combine both battery and flywheel UPS systems and a diesel generator to provide backup power during outages. The adoption of single-phase lithium-ion UPS systems is expected to increase in the modular data center development as these systems can provide significant benefits to reduce OPEX for service providers. Vendors are also continuously coming up with innovative UPS solutions to increase efficiency.Facilities in Shanghai are equipped with chilled water CRAC units and use energy-efficient free cooling techniques with redundant units. Some cities in China can facilitate free cooling for over 5,000 hours annually. The growth in the data center construction market in APAC will aid in the development of facilities that comprise multiple chillers, cooling towers, and CRAH units with N+N redundant configuration. Data centers are also designed with hot/cold aisle containment systems and equipped with a rack size of 42U. 42U rack units are the most commonly used ones, and they are expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. However, the market for rack units with a size of 45-48U is expected to witness growth during the forecast period. Data centers in Southeast Asia are designed to cool servers through water-based cooling techniques.China is considered as one of the favorable site selections for the construction of multiple hyperscale facilities. The country offers an abundant land area and favorable climatic conditions, which are likely to attract investors to build their facilities during the forecast period. Beijing and Shanghai are the leading centers for data center operations. However, a majority of development is likely to be built in rural areas during the forecast period. Australia is witnessing an increase in the construction of Greenfield projects. Some of the major cities where greenfield developments to increase includes Perth, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney. Taylor Group and Benmax Group are among the major key players providing construction services in Australia.In 2018, wholesale colocation services witnessed a high uptake among large enterprise businesses and cloud providers. The market will continue to gain traction during the forecast period on account of the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data technology among industries. Retail colocation services are likely to grow as several enterprises in Southeast Asia are shifting from traditional server room infrastructure to data centers. However, the adoption of in-house prefabricated solutions by enterprises and government agencies in the region is likely to pose a challenge to the retail colocation market.
With the increased construction of wholesale colocation space in China, Hong Kong, Australia, Singapore, Japan, and India, service providers offer customized wholesale colocation solutions, where the pre-leased customer can work with the service provider to design and develop the facility according to the customer's IT infrastructure operational requirement. Moreover, the development of multiple mega and hyperscale projects across the region is increasing, supporting wholesale colocation demand.
The data center market in India is gaining traction due to the increase in the adoption of cloud-based services, IoT devices, big data, and artificial intelligence, and other advanced technologies. Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam are major countries in the colocation markets in Southeast Asia. Singapore is a strong hub in Southeast Asia with the increasing number of the internet, cloud, telecommunications, and colocation service providers operating their facilities. The rise in submarine cable investments such as SEA-ME-WE 5, Trident Subsea Cable, Australia Singapore Cable, Indigo Cable System, and Indonesia Global Gateway Project will have high impact on growth during the forecast period.
