Report Overview

The global modular data center market size was valued at USD 18,187.2 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2 % from 2022 to 2030. Factors such as the expansion of edge computing and the increasing demand for energy-efficient, low-carbon, and green data centers across industries are driving the demand for modular data center applications among industries. Moreover, growing digital transformation is likely to fuel the growth of the market. The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the modular data center market. Increased corporate awareness of the advantages that cloud services can offer, increased board pressure to provide more secure and robust IT environments, as well as the establishment of local data centers, have all contributed to the growth of modular data centers. Italy, a nation that was particularly heavily hit by COVID-19, experienced a 775% rise in monthly users of Microsoft Teams in March 2020. Furthermore, Google's video chat services witnessed daily user growth of 60% and a 2 million user increase in March and early April of 2020. To provide sufficient network services and maintain data security for all the new users, a reliable data center infrastructure was required.

Modular data centers showcase all the capabilities of traditional data centers with additional advantages. Additionally, these kinds of data centers also address many of the construction issues associated with constructing brick-and-mortar data centers. It has applications in various industries such as IT and Telecom, BFSI, healthcare, government and defense, retail, media and entertainment, and others.

Customers of modular data center programs are compelled to commit to a long-term business partnership of 15 to 25 years with a particular vendor. Since many of the parts, devices and programs utilized in the modular building are proprietary, there is an inevitable risk. More innovation leads to more automation and complexity, which increases reliance on the vendor. Hence, dependency on vendors is likely to restrain the modular data center market growth.

IoT is expected to produce significant amounts of data in industrial applications. For instance, according to Quicksilver Capital, a smart factory will produce 5 petabytes of data every week, while an offshore oil rig is estimated to generate 1 to 2 terabytes of data every day. Massive volumes of data are transformed into insights and value by new business models that use artificial intelligence, platforms, and algorithms. According to the World Economic Forum, digitally enabled platform business models will generate 70% of new economic value over the next decade.

Component Insights

The solutions sub-segment further comprises all-in-one modules and individual modules. The solutions segment accounted for the largest revenue of USD 14,719.3 million in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.9% over the forecast period. The market growth in this segment is attributed to the features such as in-house fabrication, an all-in-one format, and high power density offered by the solution providers.

The services segment is likely to witness a CAGR of 18.2%, the highest for the segment over the forecast period. Factors such as short integration and deployment period, use of the global infrastructure management software, short commissioning time, and easy maintenance are expected to drive the growth of the services segment.
