In contrast to its related industries like consumer electronics and semiconductors, the data center and communications infrastructure industry is expected to be more buoyant with continued strategic investments made to support the increased network traffic and data usage for remote working during the lockdown phase. From school closures necessitating students to use virtual offerings (Google Classroom ) to the governments using business analytics services (Power BI) for communicating virus updates, the demand for communication services and related infrastructure has witnessed an unprecedented rise amidst the global pandemic. Digital services including telemedicine are expected to remain popular even after the pandemic is contained, thereby ensuring strong growth in the communication infrastructure industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
