In addition, the data traffic has been augmented during the spread of COVID-19. Hence, upsurge has been witnessed in the storage volume requirement due to the proliferation of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and Internet of things (IoT). This is projected to drive the South America modular data center industry investments across South America.
Top impacting factors
The South America modular data center industry growth is driven by increase in demand for rapidly deployable & scalable data centers. In addition, various factors such as upsurge in adoption of cloud services by small & medium size enterprises (SMEs), rise in demand for green data centers, and surge in demand for energy-efficient data centers notably contribute toward the growth of the market.
Services segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Moreover, rise in investments to develop advanced data centers during the COVID-19 pandemic considerably propel the growth of the market. However, challenges associated with transportation of the modular data center hamper growth of the market. On the contrary, surge in demand for modular data centers by colocation providers and emergence of fourth generation of data centers is expected to offer potential growth opportunities for the market in the near future.
Upsurge in adoption of cloud services by SMEs
Cloud computing has become an emerging technology over the last few years that has abolished the burden of purchasing licensed software and heavy hardware, which is more advantageous to SMEs. The adoption of cloud services in SMEs is increasing rapidly, as it enables such enterprises to concentrate on their essential business events, and thus improves efficiency.
By Organization Size
SME's segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Moreover, the adoption of cloud services has offered SMEs with the benefits such as unlimited computing power, lower IT expenditure, easy access of data & applications, and competitive advantage. Modular data centers are designed to deal with changes in servers such as cloud computing and virtualization. In addition, rise in demand for cloud computing has led to the emergence of innovative modular data center for SMEs, which fuels growth of the market.
Rise in expansion of global modular data center industry players in the South America
More number of global modular data center industry players are actively increasing their presence across the South America with the rapid investments along with the building of new data center campuses to meet the needs of customers in this region. For instance, in February 2020, Amazon Web Services, one of the key market players announced the investment of $236 million to expand its data center presence in the Brazilian state of São Paulo to strengthen its cloud infrastructure across South America. On the other hand, in February 2021, Huawei Technologies has activated the AZ2, a second data center in Brazil mainly as a backup center for cloud services offered from its other facility in the country. Thus, expansion trend of global modular data center industry players in South America significantly boosts growth of the modular data center market in this region.
Brazil is projected as one of the most significant country.
