Data Center Construction Market Analysis

Companies such as Siemens, Schneider Elec., Stulz, ABB, EATON, HT, and Mat Sci provide essential equipment for data centers, including servers, storage systems, networking equipment, and power and cooling systems. They work with the data center owners and design firms to select the right equipment for the specific needs of the facility. Further, when a new data center is being built by any company, it pays to bring the general contractor on board early rather than seeking out the process and ending up with unqualified subcontractors on the project. There are several general contractors present in the market such as Winthrop, Mace, Mercury, and Sisk.

Additionally, construction companies are responsible for the actual construction of the data center, including site preparation, building construction, and installation of the IT infrastructure. They need to be experienced in working with the specialized materials and systems required for data centers, such as raised floors, power distribution units, and cooling systems. Construction companies such as Rittal GmbH & Co KG, Schneider Electric SE, DPR Construction Inc, and INFINITI IT Ltd are present in the data center construction market

The world's data generation and consumption are increasing exponentially, driven by the adoption of big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) across various industries. This necessitates more data centers to store, process, and distribute this data, leading to rising demand for construction services globally. Additionally, with the rising adoption of cloud and digital services across the globe, the need for data centers is increasing. As a result, several major cloud providers plan to construct their data centers in various countries. A few of such instances are listed below:

  • In January 2024, Digital Realty announced the launch of its first data center in India on a 10-acre campus capable of supporting up to 100 megawatts (MW) of critical IT load capacity in Chennai's industrial and manufacturing hub.
  • In October 2023, Link Net, an Indonesian broadband provider, launched a new data center in Surabaya, in east Java. The company announced its partnership with Chinese telco ZTE with an aim to complete the upgradation of data center facilities in Jakarta and build a new data center in Surabaya.

Data Center Construction Market Overview

Data center construction is the physical establishment of a facility that accommodates and facilitates various IT operations and equipment for the storage, processing, and management of data. It encompasses designing and constructing a data center facility that adheres to specific requirements and standards. Data center construction prioritizes the creation of a floor plan that offers sufficient space to accommodate current and future servers and equipment. This ensures that the facility can effectively manage the growing requirement for data storage and processing. Data centers must be designed to withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and storms. Construction efforts involve implementing preventive measures and mitigating their impact, including incorporating fire prevention systems and ensuring an adequate water supply for firefighting. Data center construction entails meticulous planning and design of infrastructure components such as cabling, cooling systems, power supply, and security measures. Building codes and industry standards are considered to ensure efficient and safe operations. The construction process typically comprises several stages, including assessment, planning, design, and actual construction. Each stage requires careful consideration of business needs, facility requirements, and compliance with regulations. Data centers vary in size, capacity, and purpose. Different types and tiers exist, each possessing specific characteristics and capabilities. The design and construction of a data center depend on its intended use and the desired level of redundancy and reliability. Data center construction is a complex and critical process that necessitates expertise in areas such as architecture, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and IT infrastructure. Its objective is to establish a secure, reliable, and efficient environment for data storage and processing operations.

Data Center Construction Market Drivers and Opportunities

Rapid Expansion of IoT Services

The IoT has transformed data centers in recent years due to a surge in the adoption of IoT and IoT devices such as lightbulbs, cellphones, and webcams. With the rise in the number of IoT devices, the reliance on data centers to appropriately store, process, and analyze data is also growing. In addition, as more and more devices connect to the internet through IoT, they generate massive amounts of data. These devices include sensors in smart homes, wearables, industrial equipment, and connected cars, among others. The type of data generated by these devices is becoming increasingly diverse and complex. It includes location data, environmental data, usage data, and even real-time video streams. Further, analytics and processes are critical components in a company's digital transformation. Analytics and processes provide an avenue for data centers to expand their activities in terms of their operations. Their distinct digitization processes will include IoT deployment in operations, capacity building, business development, infrastructure, and system utilization. As more devices connect and generate massive data, the need for efficient and scalable data center infrastructure also increases. Thus, the expansion of IoT services fuels the data center construction market growth.

Data Center Construction Market Report Segmentation Analysis

The “Data Center Construction Market analysis” has been performed by considering the following segments: type of construction, Tier design, industry vertical, and geography. Based on type of construction, the data center construction market is segmented into general construction, electrical construction, and mechanical construction.
