DUBLIN, Dec 3 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Data Center Colocation Market – Global Outlook and Forecasts 2021-2026” the report was added to offer.

Experts forecast that the Per-investment Data Center Colocation market is expected to grow at 4.40% CAGR during the period 2020-2026.

The colocation market is attractive, with data centers offering a higher return on investment (ROI) than other commercial and industrial properties. In 2021, the increase in digitization is due to the pandemic, several initiatives taken by different countries and the deployment of technologies such as IoT, big data, 5G and edge. The growing investment of cloud service providers in various geographies is accelerating the colocation industry globally.


North America is among the best locations in terms of growth in the colocation facilities market. In Canada, cloud providers have seen volatile growth over the past 2-3 years, resulting in significant growth for wholesale data center providers. In the USA, Virginia, Texas, and California are the main markets for colocation operations, followed by Illinois, Georgia, Nevada, and Oregon. Canada is a market of the future because of its accessibility to renewable energy sources and its low electricity costs.


COVID-19 has been a catalyst for digitization initiatives and a solid boost in the growth of the colocation market. An increase in digitization in all businesses will continue to increase investment in colocation service data centers.

Rack power density is expected to decrease from an average of 4 to 6 kW in 2020 to around 10 to 12 kW in 2026 due to the increased deployment of high performance infrastructure.


Colocation services in data centers are offered through retail and wholesale colocation. In terms of market share, the distribution segment continues to dominate the market with around 70% market share.

Retail colocation services are likely to grow as many businesses in developing countries move from traditional server room infrastructure to data centers.
