Key Industry Trends

The data center market is experiencing several key trends that are shaping its evolution and driving its expansion globally. One significant trend is the increase in demand for cloud services, as companies increasingly shift their operations to the cloud to obtain better flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. In addition, edge computing is another pivotal trend, bringing data processing closer to the source of data generation to reduce latency and improve real-time analytics, essential for applications like IoT and autonomous vehicles. Sustainability is also a priority, with data centers implementing better methods such as employing renewable energy sources and maximizing energy efficiency to lessen their environmental effect. There are several development strategies adopted by public and private companies further expected to contribute the global market growth.

For instance, in March 2024, Eaton launched a new modular data center solution namely, Eaton’s SmartRack, to reduce the time and cost of deployment for critical infrastructure. Eaton’s SmartRack modular data centers combine IT rack, cooling, and service enclosures to create a performance-optimized data center solution for critical IT equipment with up to 150 kW of equipment load. For instance, in January 2024, Digital Realty launched its first data center in India, on a 10-acre campus capable of supporting up to 100 megawatts of critical IT load capacity that is located in Chennai's industrial and manufacturing hub. This is a significant addition to the company's global data center platform as it expands to meet digital transformation needs in key markets around the world. For instance, in April 2024, Nucor Corporation acquired Southwest Data Products, Inc. (SWDP) for $115 million. SWDP's offices and manufacturing facility are in San Bernardino, California and the company employs approximately 147 teammates.
