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 VoIP services market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 10% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the adoption of the bring your own device (BYOD) policy among organizations across the globe. Constant changes in work locations, time zone barriers, and the need to access official and confidential data through an employee’s personal device are resulting in the adoption of BYOD policies. Moreover, employees prefer these policies as they enable them to use one device for both personal and professional use. BYOD applies to smartphones, laptops, and tablets. In 2015, smartphones held the majority of the revenue share in the global BYOD market. This can be attributed to the fact that the mobile developers are developing mobile apps that are compatible with popular programs, such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Word.

In terms of geography, EMEA accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. The primary reason for this growth is the constant effort made by the telecom service providers to improve the performance of network connectivity to enhance user experience. The mass deployment of advanced LTE networks is expected to trigger an increase in demand for connectivity in the EU. Also, strategic alliances between telecom companies, such as Telit and Telefonica, to offer premium connectivity solutions to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is also boosting market growth.

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. These vendors increasingly focus on offering data center footprint reduction, strong integration, high scalability, and easy serviceability.
