Early Review of 3Q23 Capex Forecasts: Webscale & CNNO

DUBLIN , Nov. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Capex Forecast Check, 3Q23: Webscale & CNNO" report has been added to's offering.


This note provides an early review of 3Q23 market growth and capex spending figures for two of the three operator segments we cover: webscale, and carrier-neutral. 

The analysis is based on a review of over 80% of reporting companies in the two segments. Our official forecast for 2023 calls for $218B of capex for webscalers, and $39B for carrier-neutral operators (CNNOs).

Market figures through 3Q23 suggest actual capex is likely to be closer to $200B and $36B for the two segments, respectively. This is a small change, howeer, and the tech portion of webscale capex is rising modestly.

Moreover, new data from DigitalBridge makes clear that private equity-funded spend is strong in the data center CNNO market, helping to offset a weaker public CNNO market. Consequently, the vendor opportunity in selling to these two markets in 2023 is roughly the same size as forecast.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Summary
  • Introduction
  • Analysis
  • Carrier-neutral
  • Generative AI
  • Outlook
