Outlook of the global data center design market

Technavio’s market research analyst has estimated the global data center design market to grow at an impressive CAGR of over 19% by 2020. The market will exhibit significant growth potential over the forecast period owing to the increased construction of data centers globally. Recently, it has been observed that modern data center designs focus primarily on improving the efficiency of the facilities to offer multiple services and meet the operational needs of various enterprises. Furthermore, factors like the augmented construction of green data centers will also aid in the growth of this market during the estimated period. Currently, data center operators are facing issues of increased electricity consumption, high carbon emissions, and inadequate power and cooling infrastructure to support the growing operational requirements. Consequently, many design vendors are collaborating with data center operators to construct green data center facilities to deal with such issues. An efficient data center design considers the present and future IT load, power and cooling capacity required, and space for future extension.

The growing adoption of the software-defined data center (SDDC) will be the key driver for the growth of this market. An SDDC is a data center where the infrastructure is delivered as a service through virtualization of the physical infrastructure. In such a data center, the hardware infrastructure is managed through intelligent software systems. The ability of such as data center to improve efficiency, lower costs, provide applications in minutes, offer higher availability and better security, and create an opportunity for the delivery of workloads through the cloud will result in its augmented construction during the forecasted period.
