[72 Pages Report] The India data center market size is extrapolated to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2022 from USD 1.0 billion in 2018, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.4% during the forecast period. The market is driven by the deeper internet penetration, increase in digital data traffic, public cloud services, and higher expected growth for IoT.
The Indian government has launched MeghRaj Cloud to accelerate G2C services delivery. Under the scheme, many national data centers and state data centers have been built and are being built in various states, such as Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. For example, NIC has already built 4 NDCs in India and the fifth one is coming up in Bhopal. Various domestic colocation providers such as CtrlS, Netmagic, and Reliance are investing aggressively in cities like Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad. Apart from this, strict government policy for companies to store their data locally will boost the market for captive datacenters and cloud providers such as Amazon, Microsoft, and IBM have launched their own datacenters in India. MarketsandMarkets expects this trend will keep growing. The micro data center market is not much attractive in India currently; however, growth in IoT in manufacturing, automotive, and healthcare vertical will propel the market growth in the future.
Tier IV data centers in Mahape, Mumbai, were set up by Ctrl S with operational area capacity of 2,00,000 sq. ft. in 2011. It offers N+N redundancy with 99.995% up-time and certified with ISO20000-1, ISO 27001, BS 25999 kind of certifications. It has 30 MW of power capacity with telecom services from players, such as BSNL, Reliance, Airtel, Tata Teleservices, YOU, Hathway, ACT, and BSNL. The services are offered on fiber optic cable. The total cost for data center set up was about INR 335–350 crore (USD 50 million).
Fujitsu (Japan), Honeywell (US), NEC (Japan), Siemens (Germany), IBM (US), Johnson Controls (US), Hikvision (China), Dahua Technology (China), and Schneider Electric (France) are some of the key players in the India data center market providing physical infrastructure. Apart from these, there are many colocation services vendors in India, such as Netmagic, Ctrl S, ESDS, Prasa, and Sterling & Wilson.
