Report Code: TC 7032 Apr, 2019, by

[72 Pages Report] The India data center market size is expected 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.

India Data Center Market

By industry verticals, the IT & telecom sector is expected to lead the market during the forecast period.

The IT & telecom segment is expected to lead the data center market in India. Media & entertainment, retail (eCommerce), and manufacturing sectors are the next significant verticals that require the most number of data centers. The government is increasingly reliant on IT-intensive services to improve its performance and has developed many Government-to-Citizen (G2C) delivery platforms, such as the National eGovernance Plan (NeGP), e-visa, and National CSR Data portal.

India Data Center Market

By components, the electrical segment will lead the market during the forecast period.

The electrical segment is set to lead the data center market in India during the forecast period. The majority of the capital investment goes into electrical and power systems, including substations, distribution transformers, diesel

India Data Center Market

By region, Mumbai is expected to lead the market during the forecast period.

Mumbai is projected to lead the market share during the forecast period. >75% of the data centers are located in major Indian cities, such as Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, New Delhi, and Hyderabad. Mumbai and Bengaluru are providing Infrastructure to most data centers, as they are hubs for BFSI(Banking, financial services, and insurance) and IT & ITeS start-ups.   

Market Dynamics

Driver: Public Cloud Services Market Will Double by 2020

Higher cloud adoption will lead to a rise in the volume of data generation and hence, an increase in requirement for data storage and processing. Also, the Indian government’s National Digital Communications Policy in 2018 has mandated data localization in the country, which means cloud providers will have to set up their data centers in India.

Opportunity: High growth of the hyper-converged infrastructure market

HCI (hyper-converged infrastructure) equipment is power-hungry and requires energy management solutions to reduce operating costs. Energy-efficient solutions and devices would be an attractive option here for HCI providers to reduce energy consumption. Hence, the demand for energy-efficient solutions and accessories will increase.

Challenge: Use of solar power in data centers

Colocation providers in India are slowly shifting toward solar energy to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, NxtGen’s data center at Bidadi, Karnataka, partially draws power from solar panels. CtrlS has announced its plans to convert all its datacenters to solar enabled in the next five years. The adoption of solar-powered data centers will affect the demand for UPS and generators in data centers.
