The Germany data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.36% from 2022 to 2027


The Government of Germany is making a continuous effort to improve the digital economy of the country. By 2025, the German government wants to invest $3.09 billion in AI research and development. Cloud operators and colocation operators highly dominate the industry. Also, the Germany data center market is witnessing the entry of a new investor, Yondr, who plans to build a facility in the country.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the country is witnessing growth in cloud adoption by various industry verticals such as enterprises, government agencies, and education sectors. Therefore, the companies such as IBM, Alibaba, Deutsche Telekom, Oracle, Exoscale, and Profitbricks have a presence in the country. The existence of cloud regions such as Google, Amazon Web Services, and Deutsche Telekom are providing services in the country. Also, foreign cloud operators are entering the German industry; for instance, Alibaba opened its facility in Frankfurt to provide customer services. The increasing investment in renewable energy from solar and wind energy to power data centers is a major focussed area. By 2060, the country aims to be net zero carbon emission.


• Germany has around 125 operational colocation data centers. Most colocation centers are being developed according to Tier III standards. According to Uptime Institute, there are approximately four facilities certified under Tier III standards by Uptime Institute.
• The primary demand drivers for colocation services in Germany are industries such as cloud, followed by telecom, 5G deployment, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Due to COVID-19, various organizations started working on cloud platforms.
• The German Legislation has proposed a new data protection law, Telekommunikation-Telemedien-Datenschutz-Gesetz (TTDSG), as this law is still in the legislative process and is expected to come into effect by 2023.
• In Germany, Frankfurt and Munich are the most preferred locations for developing facilities due to their proximity to end-users.
• The deployment of 5G networks will boost the digital economy of the region and will lead to higher demand for high-bandwidth networking infrastructure. For instance, as of February 2022, Deutsche Telekom deployed more than 63,000 antennas in Germany, providing 5G services to over 90% of the country’s population.

• The operators are procuring IT infrastructure from the infrastructure providers to improve the efficiency of the data center operations. For instance, Juniper Networks has provided QFX5100-48T, QFX5110-48S, and QFX10002 Switches, EX4600 and EX3400 Ethernet Switches for T-Systems to improve network automation in Germany.
