Africa Data Center Market – Segmentation


  • The server market in Africa is expected to witness significant growth in the next few years due to investments from major cloud service providers in the region. It is likely to grow with the increase in the physical presence of SaaS providers. These expansions will increase the demand for servers and promote the procurement of high-performance infrastructure solutions.
  • The generator market will continue to grow because of the continuous construction of large and mega facilities in Africa. The service providers are concerned with carbon emission, which is likely to increase the adoption of efficient generator systems. Recently, the adoption of Diesel Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (DRUPS) systems has grown since they combine both battery and flywheel UPS topology and a diesel generator to provide backup power during outages.
  • Data centers in Africa support the use of free cooling systems as they take advantage of cold nights and winter seasons in the region. This will lead to the adoption of free cooling chillers. Operators in the African region are still dependent on air-based cooling techniques.
