Market Overview

Today’s digital world runs on the ability to build an exceptional customer experience anytime, anywhere. That means immediate access to information, and a fundamental shift in how users think about data centers. Most of the prominent players have moved to public and private clouds, co-location facilities, the edge cloud, and evolving datacenters using virtualization and software-defined networks. The reason for the shift toward Edge Data Centers is smart agility, convenience, and cost-effectiveness. According to Grand View Research, more than 90 percent of IT organizations believe that their environment become complex and impenetrable.

Recent transformations in data center construction are size. Some datacenters have become smaller and more scattered as edge datacenters. Edge data centers are relatively smaller than large cloud datacenters and will need to be located near places where people congregate and move. It has decentralized facilities, equipped with power and cooling infrastructure, that provide computing and storage in a location closer to where data is being generated and/or used. There are two types of Edge datacenters (Metro and Mobile), which are typically the size of a shipping container, are placed at the base of cell towers, and provide substantial support to IoT (Internet of Things) and the autonomous vehicle segment to increase processing capability and enhance customers’ experience. They are also helping mobile network operators (MNOs) to provide faster content services to mobile subscribers,and prefabricated modular Edge data centers which are ideal for a variety of industries that need hyper-local compute and storage capacity. For better clarity Edge data centers can typically be distinguished by the following characteristics:

Edge Data Center Market Overview

Market Outlook

There's no question that the Edge data center must be reimagined and redesigned to account for the new distributed Edge data center, which should undergo significant modernization initiatives to deliver agility, flexibility, elastic scale, seamless integration, inherent security, and simplified management:

Trends Driving the Edge Data Center Market:

  • The increasing penetration of 5G networks has contributed to the increase in high device density use cases such as smart factories and city, connected devices, and IoT. Small edge data centers offer low latency, cost-effective solutions, and a large bandwidth to such applications, ensuring seamless connectivity.

  • Low latency processing by edge datacenters manages large data volume generated by the proliferation of IoT sensors and devices in industrial and home settings.

  • Low-cost edge data centers help bridge the widening data cap of 64 zettabytes between usable data created and data center traffic.

  • The use of network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) in edge datacenters helps in replacing the costly hardware used in traditional data centers, resulting in cost-effectiveness and enhanced performance.

  • Decentralization of edge datacenters facilitates enhanced performance to businesses and consumers, especially companies operating in the AR/VR and video streaming space.

Edge Data Center Market Outlook

Market Opportunity

According to GVR, the market of edge data centers is expected to nearly triple by 2025. Be great to the potential for these smaller, locally located data centers to reduce latency, overcome recurrent connections, and store and compute data close to the end user. However, organizations have different strategies and timing to create a business opportunity in its marketplace.

Increasing demand of mobile data traffic is a major factor projected to accelerate the global edge datacenter market in the next few years. Additionally, SMEs are expected to rapidly adopt edge data center solutions in the coming years because they are observing robust digitalization and offering online services, which need data-intensive applications. GVR, witnessed that APAC is the fastest growing market by 2030 at a growth rate of 25.4 percent, where North America dominating the region extensively.
