The Australian data centre (DC) services market is undergoing a period of significant growth, driven by the growth in use of Big Data, IoT applications, and analytics software. The growth in global mobile data traffic is expected to continue to underpin the demand for DC services in the foreseeable future.
With global mobile data traffic expected to increase at 52.6% CAGR from 2015 to 2020, this will align with an increase in enterprises’ demand for additional bandwidth, data storage, and computing power. At the same time, enterprises require infrastructure and services for secure storage and monitoring of all data collected. This is expected to increase sharply in the future and continue to fuel growth for data centre services. The overall market grew 18.3% from the previous year to reach $976 million in 2015. By 2021, the market is expected to reach $2.051 billion and it is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% throughout the forecast period.
Co-location is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% over the forecast period, while managed hosting revenue is likely to grow at a CAGR of 15.4%. Managed hosting is likely to grow at a faster rate due to the increasing number of enterprise customers outsourcing the provision of maintenance and control of their IT to managed hosting providers.
The DC services provider landscape in Australia includes DC specialist providers, IT services firms, telecommunications companies, and modular DC providers. While DC specialist providers such as Equinix, NextDC, Metronode, Global Switch, and Digital Realty are the most dominant providers of co-location, IT services firms such as Fujitsu, IBM Softlayer, and HP and telcos such as Telstra, Optus, and Macquarie Telecom provide managed IT services, which is the faster growing segment in the market. Due to the ability to add capacity on demand, modular DC providers are also becoming increasingly popular amongst cloud services providers and enterprises with special requirements.
