The data center market in Western Europe by investment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 1% during the period 2019-2025
NEW YORK, April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
The favorable climatic conditions and the availability of renewable resources such as wind energy have helped data center operators to benefit from free cooling in the UK. Several facilities have adopted water-based cooling systems to cool their facilities. Also, the UK is the leading market for liquid-immersion cooling. Many data centers built in Germany are adopting free cooling to cool the facility. These facilities use redundant water and air-cooled system supported by free cooling with N+1 redundancy and CRAH units with N+1 configuration. In France, a majority of facilities are adopting free cooling solutions and several prefer water-based cooling using chillers. Facilities mostly prefer free cooling due to favorable climatic conditions. The facilities use CRAC units and chillers with free cooling in N+1 redundant configuration and cold aisle containment. The Netherlands market is witnessing significant growth in the adoption of free cooling systems. Enterprises are implementing redundant water and air-cooled systems supported by free cooling with N+1 redundancy and CRAH units with N+1 redundancy.
The data center market in Western Europe is expected to witness greenfield construction largely. High investments from hyperscale providers will become a major driver for revenue generation for general contractors and sub-contractors in the market. The UK market witnessed over 20 data center projects that were opened or under construction in 2019. Among them, about ten facilities were opened in 2019, and remaining facilities are likely to open by June 2020. Several facilities are built with multi-level security. There is an increasing demand for IP video surveillance systems in the market. APL, TPF Ingénierie, and CAP INGELEC are some of the notable players providing construction services in France. In terms of physical security, there is a growing demand for IP video surveillance systems in the market. A majority of facilities developed in the Netherlands is expected to be greenfield development projects during the forecast period. Equinix, CyrusOne, Microsoft, Digital Realty, and Interxion carry out greenfield development in France.
Data centers of Tier II standards are designed with minimal redundancy. There are a few facilities in Western Europe that are Tier II certified based on designing and construction. In these facilities, redundancy is recognized between UPS and PDU systems. A majority of under-developed projects across the globe fall under the Tier III category. This trend is likely to continue in Western Europe during the forecast period, with many operators expected to move to Tier IV standards due to the growth in rack power density and critical data center applications. Germany is witnessing the highest number of Tier III facilities, followed by the UK, France, and the Netherland. Most facilities in France are Tier III certified by the Uptime Institute. The use of OCP infrastructure is likely to increase among colocation providers in the country during the forecast period.
Insights by Geography
The adoption of cloud services is one of the major drivers for the UK data center market. Several government departments are migrating to the cloud environment. Over the past eight years, the government has saved over $100 million in data center consolidation. With the UK likely to move out of the European Union, service providers are expected to face stringent rules and regulations regarding the storage and processing of data outside the country.
The IT and telecommunication industries are predominant adopters of cloud computing, followed by the transportation sector in the country. In Germany, NDC Data centre, Interxion, Digital Realty, Equinix, Global Switch, CyrusOne, NTT (e-Shelter), Etix Everywhere, and Colt DCS are the major investors invested in multiple facilities. In Germany, Frankfurt, Munich, Offenbach, and Hamburg witnessed investment in 2019.
