Modular data center system is commonly used as an alternative to the traditional data centers, mainly because they can be placed at any place where added data capacity is required. These centers have redefined the way the conventional infrastructures like cooling, spacing and power supplying worked. Different advantages of these systems including scalability, flexibility, reusability, portability, low, cost, reduced deployment time, and smaller footprint make them highly popular. These advantages are considered to be the strongest driver for the global modular data center market. The industry is also expected to gain benefits from technological advancements and growing applications across different industrial verticals.
According to the latest market research reports, the global modular data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 31%, from 2014 to 2019. At the projected growth rate, the market is expected to become worth $26.02 billion by the end of the year 2019. As of 2014, the market is expected to be worth $6.52 billion. During the forecasting period, North America is expected to dominate the global market. Asia Pacific and other emerging markets, on the other hand, are expected to witness impressive growth as well.
