About India


India has the availability of water and fibre connectivity including the connection via international sub marine cables - well over ten. New Data Centre expansion is focused on the largest cities including Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.     


The large cloud computing providers (AWS, Microsoft Cloud & Google Cloud Platform) all now have a local cloud presence in India, with facilities being introduced to cater to data sovereignty concerns. Government legislation is likely to stop personal data from being stored outside of India in the future and is already preventing personal payment data from being sent outside the country.


The Indian Government has established a National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) and a GI Cloud Initiative to set up a cloud enabled Data Centre, National Data Centres and infrastructure as a State Area Wide Network (SWAN).


The vast majority of Indian Data Centre facilities have been developed as third-party sites, but there has been some investment by Amazon (AWS) in dedicated Hyperscale Data Centre facilities. Other Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) rent capacity from third-party Hyperscale Data Centre facilities. Most investment is being ploughed into third-party Data Centre facilities suitable for Hyperscale user needs, with larger campus facilities under development by Indian Data Centre Providers - a new trend is the partnerships being formed between Indian Data Centre Providers and foreign investors.


India has become one of the fastest growing Data Centre & Cloud markets in the world, and the report looks at the Data Centre & Cloud landscape in India, with a forecast for the 4 years from the beginning of 2021 to the beginning of 2025 - including:


  • Indian Data Centre raised floor space (in m2)
  • Indian Data Centre Customer Power (DCCP in MW)
  • Indian Data Centre capex investment (in millions of USD)
  • Indian Data Centre revenues (in millions of USD)
  • Indian Public Cloud revenues (in millions of USD)

A new wave of inward Data Centre investment is coming into the Indian market - There is a large amount of new international Data Centre investment being made in India.


CSP investment in India is also increasing - CSP investment in India is being made by a number of international players including: AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure Cloud, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud and Alibaba Cloud. But there are also a range of Indian local CSPs available, including: Airtel, CtrlS, NTT, Sify Technology and Yotta Infrastructure – who partner with the global CSPs.  


Other investments are being made by a range of private equity investors - including Princeton Digital Group (PDG) - who has invested in a series of Data Centre facilities in Singapore, Indonesia & China. PDG has stated that it intends to open a new Data Centre facility in Mumbai - and has announced a plan to build a two building Data Centre campus.


Potential Indian Data Centre investment can grow by almost USD $8 billion from the beginning of 2021 to the beginning of 2025


The scale of the Indian Data Centre Provider facility is increasing in size over time - There is a range of new third-party Data Centre Providers being planned on large campus sites in India – allowing multiple data buildings to be deployed.


The Data Centre facilities on the large campus can be used for various needs - including third-party colocation services, build to suit facilities and powered shell buildings - that can be customized for individual hyperscale users including the CSP segment.


Although the growth in the Indian Data Centre market is rapid - evidence suggests that it is still some way away from maturity - The size of the Indian third-party Data Centre market is currently behind that of Germany - a country of approximately 83 million people (compared with India’s population of 1.3 billion (both populations are forecast as of 2016)).


The Indian Data Centre market is dominated by four main Data Centre city area clusters - The four largest Indian city area clusters (Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and New Delhi) account for over 80 percent of Indian third-party Data Centre raised floor space.


The Indian Data Centre market is also dominated by a handful of Data Centre Providers with increasingly large facilities - These providers have coverage in multiple Indian cities. Indian Data Centre Providers with a presence in multiple cities include BSNL, NTT India Ltd (a subsidiary of Japanese Telecoms Provider NTT Communications), STT GDC India, Sify Technology, Reliance IDC and Nxtra Data (formerly Bharti Airtel).


Indian Data Centre Pricing varies significantly by each region & by Data Centre facility - Data Centre pricing in India varies extensively - depending on whether low cost or premium rack space and power bundles are used - and also by region and the quality standard of the Data Centre facility, average Indian Data Centre rates remain relatively high - at a rental rate of over USD $1,000 per rack per month as an average.
