APAC Data Center Colocation Market: Segmentation
This research report includes detailed segmentation by electrical infrastructure, mechanical infrastructure, general construction, colocation services, cooling systems, and geography.
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.
A majority of the data centers are adopting a combination of air and water-based cooling techniques to cool down the facility.
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.
The high demand for hyperscale services is driving the market share of the building development segment.
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.
The retail colocation segment continues to dominate the APAC market.
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.
Wholesale services are estimated to experience increased adoption during the forecast period.
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.
