Introduction to the Market
A data center is a centralized facility for data computing, processing, and
storage. A data center facility contains high performance servers, networking
equipment, storage arrays, and provides supporting services such as powering and
cooling solutions. Data centers are either established by large scale
enterprises or by a group of enterprises for centralization of the computing and
storage processes. With the evolution of cloud computing and cloud-based
services, a number of data centers are being established to cater to the
computing requirements of end-users.
The Global Data Center market is expected to post a CAGR of 10.71 percent during
the period 2012-2016. Data center market consists of component markets such as
storage, networking, servers, and powering and cooling solutions. The increasing
centralization of computational resources is expected to be a major growth
driver for this market. But rising real-estate costs is resulting in high
investments, which is hindering the number of data centers being established.
North America accounted for the highest share of revenue in the Global Data
Center market. Other regions are also witnessing an impressive growth as many
new data center facilities are being established.
