ICT | Delivery Format: PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID: ARC369

A modular data center refers to a portable method of positioning a data center capacity. These data centers can be deployed anywhere, where there is a requirement of data capacity. Modular data center comprises modules and components that are purpose-engineered to provide scalable data center capacity that has multiple cooling and power options. Usually these data centers are designed in shipping containers with standardized configurations but can also be custom-made according to the requirement. The modular data centers are gaining popularity among organizations owing to the characteristics such as scalability and easy deployment. Since these data centers are prefabricated modules they can be deployed easily and in less time as compared to conventional data centers. Another factor driving the demand for modular data center is that it facilitates in cutting the infrastructural cost required to deploy a conventional data center. Furthermore, organizations are opting for modular data center in place of conventional data centers due to the advancement of technology, power efficiency delivered by modular data centers and dynamic business needs.

The modular data center market is bifurcated by module solution, service, deployment size, vertical and geography. The solution segment is classified into all-in-one functional module and individual functional module. The individual function module is further sub-segmented into IT module, mechanical module and electrical module. By service, the market is segmented into consulting, integration & deployment and infrastructure management. On the basis of deployment size, the market is bifurcated into medium-sized data center, large data center and enterprise data center. Further, the vertical segment is classified into banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), healthcare, IT & telecom, education, government & defense, energy, retail, manufacturing and others. Geographically, the market is bifurcated into Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Latin America.

The integration & deployment services segment dominates the market for modular data center in terms of service. Increasing investments globally for deployment of modular data centers and their rising adoption are fueling the market growth. North America held the largest share in 2015 owing to the developments and better infrastructure facilities available in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to experience high demand for modular data centers. This demand is due to the increasing number of companies deploying modular data centers in developing economies such as India, China and Philippines. The dependency on vendors may act as a factor hampering the growth of modular data centers market. Vendors offer specialized solutions, that are not standardized. This makes it difficult for organizations to opt for any other vendor who can offer added functionality solutions.

The IT & telecom segment is the leading verticals segment owing to the increasing demand for capacity expansion by IT & telecom companies particularly, in developing countries. The rising usage of internet services in developing countries by population demanding more digital content is resulting in increased demand for capacity expansion. Further, the modular data centers are portable and can be easily shipped and also, can work efficiently in harsh environments. Thus, organizations operating in remote locations are opting for modular data centers for increasing efficiency. On the other hand, modular data centers can be re-located and their usage in defense applications is rapidly increasing.
