The Italy data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.40% during 2022-2027.


The increase in the adoption of cloud-based services in the country is driving the establishment of cloud regions by major cloud service providers such as Google, Oracle, Microsoft, and Huawei. The Digital Italy 2026 plan has been launched in Italy to aid the digitization of the government/public institutions and improve the implementation of cloud services, boosting data center investments in the country by colocation and hyperscale operators.

The Italy data center market will be heavily witnessing greenfield construction. Colocation providers are investing significantly, making them one of the major drivers for generating revenue for sub-contractors and general contractors in the industry. Initiatives are being taken by the Italian government to set up free trade and special economic zones, benefiting enterprises, industries, and operators to lower the tax burden. Numerous submarine cable deployments were observed in the country. For instance, Africa-1 is expected to be ready for service in 2023 and connect Italy to various parts of the world, which will aid in more data center investments.


a) The Italy data center market is one of the emerging markets in the Western European region. The emergence is supported by the factors such as 5G deployments, increasing adoption of cloud services, growing connectivity through submarine cables, and others.
b) Milan is a prominent location for facilities development in the country. It is home to colocation operators such as Equinix, Aruba, Irideos, MIX, BT Italia, and more.
c) Cloud demand is significantly increasing in the country, due to which major cloud service providers are planning to set up cloud regions. There are significant investments by hyperscale operators such as Google and Oracle. For instance, Oracle opened a cloud region in Milan in December 2021.
d) Italy is the third largest European producer of renewable energy. The country generated maximum renewable energy through water sources (hydroelectricity). Currently, 40% of the country’s electricity is generated through the renewable mean of energy.
e) Italy is witnessing the entry of new operators into the industry. For instance, in August 2022, Compass Datacenter entered the country’s market in partnership with Hines in plans to develop a 48 MW data center facility.
