The modular data center market has experienced high growth and adoption rate in the last few years and is also expected to experience a significant increase and adoption rate in years to come. One of the primary reason for high adoption of modular data centers are, it provides end-users ease of deployment along with flexibility for high scalability, the modular data center also provides end users with optimal CAPEX and improved energy efficiency, which also helps in achieving low OPEX. Adoptions of the modular data center are expected to accelerate at a high growth rate in the coming few years due to, financial, technology and communications and government industry verticals’ inclination towards adopting such solutions which can provide better energy efficiency, easy capacity expansion and optimized CAPEX. Many small and large organizations and enterprises in the above verticals have adopted modular data center solutions owing to the various advantages it offers, thus influencing the market revenues and growth rates globally.
The market for modular data center is segmented on the basis of solution, services, application, deployment, and vertical. Based on solution, the modular data center market is segmented into all-in-one modular data center and single function modular data center. On the basis of end-user, the Modular data center market is segmented into consulting & planning services; design, construction & commissioning services; operations & maintenance services and other services. The application segment of modular data center includes emergency & temporary deployment, remote office support, disaster recovery and others. The market by deployment is segmented into two categories namely Greenfield deployment and Brownfield deployment. The modular data centers are used by various industries verticals depending on their need and location and the vertical segment is classified into energy, BFSI, Telecom & IT, education & research, government and others. Geographically, the market is fragmented into five regions, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The spending on modular data center is quite high in both developed and developing regions such as North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. The demand for modular data center is expected to grow further during the forecast period of 2020 to 2025.
The usual containerized shape of modular data centers such as standard 10 feet, 20 feet, 40 feet, and customized container solutions, provide a high degree of ease in its shipment, transport and deployment. Modular data center’s ease of deployment and its ability of quick implementation (as it is pre-fabricated and tested at the factory or development site), provide end-user advantage of having a fully functional data center in comparatively short period of time, in comparison to the traditional brick and mortar facility in synchronization with its dynamic business requirement. The modular data center also provides end users flexibility to enhance its storage and operational capacity for increasing data requirements, relative cooling and power module can also be added as in required easily.
Modular data center by solution is categorized into All-in-One modular data center and single function modular data center. The all-in-one modular data center is further sub-categorized into standard 20 feet container module, standard 40 feet container module, and other customized container modules. Also, the single function modular data center is sub-segmented based on the type of module into the IT module, power module, and cooling module. The demand for All-In-One modular data center is growing owing to the easily deployment of such modular data centers and with the increasing number of small and medium sized companies deploying data centers which provides the facilities of scalability, relocation and less space requirement
With the rise in demand for IT services by the businesses, the need for facilities regarding data centers are also increasing resulting in the dynamic growth for data center services. Several vendors are offering data center services to the customers enabling them to understand the data center infrastructure needed to be implemented. The data centers are restrictive and require high-cost investment. Therefore, before choosing a suitable data center, a company needs to identify the efficiency, financing, manageability, operating costs to cope up with dynamic growth. The various services include consulting & planning services; design, construction & commissioning services; operations & maintenance services and other services.
The application segment of modular data center includes emergency & temporary deployment, remote office support, disaster recovery and others. The applications of modular data center vary from factors such as geographical location, climatic conditions, capacity requirement etc. The increasing number of mobile and internet users worldwide is the major reason for most of the companies demanding for additional capacity storage for the content thereby, increasing the market for capacity storage globally.
The market by deployment is segmented into two categories namely Greenfield deployment and Brownfield deployment. Deployment refers to the procedure of placing the data centers
The rise in capacity expansion for the IT facility and other additional form factors in the existing modular data centers of the companies is resulting in the growth of brownfield deployment segment.
The modular data centers are used by various industries verticals depending on their need and location and the vertical segment is classified into energy, BFSI, Telecom & IT, education & research, government and others. The increasing number of mobile subscribers globally is the prime reason for Telecom & IT sector growth for modular data center market.
Players operating in the Modular data center market focus on strategies, such as market initiatives, acquisitions, and product launches, to maintain their positions in the modular data center market. A few developments by key players of the modular data center market are:
