The global data center colocation market is experiencing significant growth owing to the expanding use of IoT, cloud computing, and AI/ML technologies. Governments in various countries have launched digitalization initiatives to promote economic development, thereby boosting the operator confidence in managing data centers in the whole region. For example, the UK government implemented a cloud strategy to enhance the country’s adoption of cloud services. This has created a favorable environment for adopting cloud services among the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Europe as businesses increasingly recognize the benefits of digital transformation. The considerable growth in demand for colocation data centers can be attributed to regional organizations continuing to migrate their workloads to the cloud. This has attracted investments from both local and global data center providers. 

Growing M&A and Joint Ventures in the Data Center Colocation Market 

In the global market, joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions are commonly used strategies for businesses to expand, collaborate, or restructure their operations. The data center industry has witnessed significant joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions. Additionally, there is an influx of companies from the real estate industry acquiring data center companies to enter the market. These acquisitions and JVs provide opportunities for new players to enter the market, attract customers, and gain a larger market share. Private equity firms are rapidly expanding their investment, considering the increasing demand for data centers and better returns in the short term. New players are entering the market by acquiring existing data center operators or forming joint ventures. Several colocation vendors in the Latin America data center colocation market are actively participating in mergers and acquisitions. For instance, in March 2022, Equinix acquired four data centers of Entel, located in Chile and Peru. In December 2022, Aligned Data Centers agreed to acquire ODATA, marking the company’s entry into the Latin American market. 

In Europe, colocation prices vary from country to country. Markets such as the UK, Germany, and France account for the highest colocation pricing in Europe compared to the other markets. The data center colocation market will continue to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts continue to propel their market share and presence in the region, thereby driving the colocation market growth. Retail colocation spaces will register a higher demand than wholesale colocation spaces in the region. Conversely, other European markets may offer more competitive pricing due to various factors, including lower operating costs, access to renewable energy sources, and emerging data center hubs. The colocation market in Western Europe is expected to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts aim to increase their market share and presence. This consolidation is anticipated to contribute to the continued growth and competitiveness of the European colocation market. 

Geographical Overview 

Many data center investments are witnessed in the US, driven by the deployment of 5G, technological advances, the adoption of Big data and IoT, digitalization, and the development of smart cities. The Southeastern region, particularly North Virginia, is considered the global data center capital, hosting a high concentration of facilities. Virginia, Texas, California, and Georgia are the top states attracting investments from global operators. In Arizona, businesses in FTZs can receive significant tax reductions. The Northeastern region faces space constraints for data center development, leading to expansions in large-scale colocation facilities. Salt Lake City experiences significant demand from the IT, cloud, entertainment, media, and retail sectors, while Chicago experiences rapid growth and is expected to continue expanding. The US data center colocation market is expected to see the entry of new players. In 2022, notable newcomers, such as AUBix, Edge Centres, Corscale Data Centers, Yondr, and Quantum Loophole, entered the market. However, these newcomers will face competition from both local and established global players in the market. The US data center colocation market is set to continue its revenue growth. This growth will be fueled by providers who construct new facilities and expand their existing capacities. In 2022, the US market experienced notable M&As due to increased industry demand. This led to data center suppliers entering M&A contracts to expand their portfolios. This trend is expected to persist throughout the forecast period. New entrants aiming to expand their revenue will also contribute to the growth of the colocation market in the US.
