“Growing adoption of cloud computing to drive the data center colocation market”
The data center colocation is estimated to grow from USD 25.70 billion in 2015 to USD 54.13 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.1%. There is a persistent increase in the demand of data center colocation services, as large enterprises begin to rely heavily on outsourced and managed services, rather than deploying their own IT infrastructure, which cannot be as flexible, dependable, and scalable as outsourced colocation centers.

“Retail Colocation to dominate during the forecast period”
In 2015, retail colocation dominates the data center colocation market, by type, during the forecast period. Small and medium businesses which do not require large space for their equipment and servers generally prefer retail colocation. However, wholesale colocation being more cost efficient, is expected to witness highest growth.

“APAC to witness highest growth during 2015-2020”
North America is projected to dominate the data center colocation market during the forecast period due to technological advancements and early adoption of cloud computing in the region. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020 due to increasing technological adoption and huge opportunities in countries such as China, India, and Japan.
