Overview of the global mini data center market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global mini data center market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 17% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in demand for mini data centers among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). As a significant number of SMEs are incapable of making substantial investments in the construction of traditional data center facilities, the demand for data center infrastructure is growing among SMEs worldwide. Compared to traditional facilities, mini data centers are cost-effective, flexible, and scalable. Also, SMEs (instead of co-locating data center space) are likely to prefer micro data centers with the installation of their rack infrastructure to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. According to this market research, apart from SMEs, organizations in domains like retail, manufacturing, and banking, are also expected to adopt these data centers and contribute to the growth of the mini data center market in the coming years.

 One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the growing need for edge computing. Edge computing is an architectural model in which the data generated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices are processed at the edge of the network, which is mostly close to the source of the data. As, the number of internet connected devices are expected to grow exponentially over the coming years, the demand for data centers will grow parallelly. This growing number of connected devices will lead to the generation of large volumes of data, which in turn will require efficient data centers.

Overview of the global containerized and modular data center market

The global containerized and modular data center market is anticipated to grow rapidly and will post a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period. The increasing need to reduce the complexity associated with traditional data centers will drive the growth prospects for the global containerized and modular data center market in the forthcoming years. One of the major factors responsible for the growing number of additional infrastructure or constructing an additional facility is the continual growing demand witnessed from various businesses. Consequently, a large number of additional infrastructure components such as modern infrastructure with advanced power and cooling systems are installed in the existing data center. This further results in the increased cost of production, the cost of installation, and complexity of the operations and management of the facility.

The growing competition among vendors will drive the growth prospects for the global containerized and modular data center market until the end of 2021. One of the major factors responsible for this growing competition is the increasing procurement of services from third-party vendors, which helps in the management of network performance.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global containerized and modular data center market is highly diversified and competitive due to the presence of a large number of regional and international vendors across the globe.

Global outlook of the data center rack PDU market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global data center rack power distribution unit (PDU) market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of almost 7% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the growing need for redundant and reliable power solutions to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The recent years have witnessed a rise in the number of data centers suffering power outages that results in the disruption of business operations. This has induced operators to equip their data centers with redundant power units to ensure higher availability. Intelligent PDUs regulate the voltage based on the environment of a data center and also provide real-time information about the input and output power of an IT infrastructure. Moreover, these PDUs also enable better power management during equipment failures, which will also aid in boosting their adoption among modern data centers.

With a rapid increase in power usage, organizations will start focusing on acquiring solutions that will help manage power consumption and increase energy efficiency. To ensure the better usage of available resources and control power consumption, PDU manufacturers have already started providing solutions equipped with monitoring capabilities. In addition to decreasing power usage and increasing the efficiency of a data center, these solutions will also reduce an organization's carbon footprint, in turn, boosting the demand for intelligent rack PDUs.

Overview of the data center precision air conditioner market in APAC

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the data center precision air conditioner market in APAC will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 9% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increased construction of modular data centers as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The increase in ability to provide computational power to demanding businesses will result in the adoption of modular data centers. Additionally, the effectiveness of these data centers and their ability to adapt to variations in temperature and humidity, will also drive their adoption. Since precision air conditioning units are an integral part in modular data centers, this increase in their adoption will subsequently drive the growth of the market.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the coming years is the increased usage of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions. DCIM helps in the remote monitoring of data center cooling systems and also helps in customizing systems according to the external environment with the help of sensors fitted to these cooling systems.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a considerable number of precision cooling manufacturers and appears to be highly fragmented. One of the major vendors Airedale Air Conditioning, is a leading manufacturer of data center cooling solutions. The company has a wide product portfolio that includes precision air conditioning, chillers, and

Global outlook of the data center fabric market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global data center fabric market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of more than 8% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the increased adoption of cloud-based services to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. Cloud-based services eliminate the need to own and manage data center infrastructure and are highly cost-effective. As a result, large enterprises, SMEs, and several government agencies are increasingly adopting cloud-based services offered by CSPs, such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, and are constantly increasing their infrastructure expenditure on data centers. Since most of these CSPs operate Tier-3 and Tier-4 data centers, they will start virtualizing their facilities to increase the utilization of the underlying IT infrastructure. This will, in turn, boost the market’s growth prospects since fabric networking provides high availability of services through dynamic allocation of virtual machines.

This market research and analysis estimates that in terms of geographical regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributors to the market throughout the predicted period. The increased spending on data centers by the US and the rising number of data centers in Canada and Latin America will propel the growth of the market in this region.
