Modular Data Center Market Size, Share& Covid-19 impact analysis; Market by Solution (All-in-One Modules and Individual Modules), Service (Design and Consulting, Integration and Deployment, Support and Maintenance), Organization Size, Industry, and Region - Global Forecast to 2027


Modular Data, it is a compact device that can be easily stationed anywhere to serve customers' current data center, or it can be built into a system of modules, modular data center are an effective alternative to conventional brick and mortar data center. Many of the usual components, such as fuel, it, cooling, fire safety, and access control, are present in these data centers. Furthermore, these compact systems help with energy savings because they use less resources than conventional data centers.

The global modular data center industry was worth valued at $16.56 Billion in 2019, which is expected to grow to $65.55 Billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 19.0% between 2020 and 2027.


Modular data centers are leading the industry due to their versatility and scalability. Clients will move their data centers rather than demolish them and build a new one at a new location since modular data centers are mobile. The modular data center's simplicity comes from the fact that they can be quickly replaced if they become outdated or if new technology is required. Demand for solutions and services is on the rise. Cloud-based networking, artificial intelligence, robotics and automation, and other technologies have aided in the creation of scalable data centers

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a minor effect on the development of the modular data center industry. Stay-at-home orders and social distancing measures have been implemented in most nations, resulting in an increase in remote employment and media use. These factors would make internet content like streaming video, virtual private networks (VPNs), online gaming, and cloud storage even more common. Consumer demand is being propelled by the social and industry disruption created by the pandemic.


Due to increased acceptance of modular data center solutions and benefits associated with modular data center solutions such as improved energy consumption, mobility, speed & agility, and scalability, in contrast to conventional data center solutions, the system segment experienced the fastest growth in 2019 and is projected to continue its supremacy in the coming years. However, the services sector is projected to expand the most, due to widespread acceptance of implementation and integration services by end users to ensure that the modular data center solution functions properly in the process.

The data center market share was dominated by large companies in terms of business size, and this trend is likely to continue in the coming years. This is due to a variety of concerns associated with larger companies' higher carbon footprint and higher electricity usage, which drives demand for scalable data center solutions. However, due to the absence of the need for specialist support skillsets, as well as benefits such as personnel and administration savings, real estate savings, and lower power consumption productivity, the small and medium businesses segment is projected to expand the most (PUE).

IT & Telecom is projected to have the largest market share over the forecast era, with key market participants concentrating on developing advanced prefabricated data centres to meet the growing demand in the IT and Telecom industries. To simplify their networks and the digital applications that operate on them, telecom operators may need to add more computing and storage space across carrier networks. Furthermore, the 4G deployment and the impending 5G surge are incentivizing telecom providers to invest in the scalable data center industry in order to expand network functionality and manageability.

Modular Data center Market - By Service Type


As of the large presence of leading modular data center providers and the thriving IT & telecom industry, North America dominates the modular data center market share. Furthermore, the market's growth is fueled by a boom in investments by major players as well as the government in the development of advanced prefabricated data centers. The demand for new data center infrastructures in the area is being driven by the rise of mobile broadband, a surge in big data analytics and cloud computing. The North American area has a large number of data center’s, and several businesses are transitioning from hardware to software-based facilities, so there is a sizeable demand for data center installations affected the market growth directly.

Due to factors such as the comprehensive expansion of 5G network infrastructure in the area and the increase in the number of start-ups and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in emerging economies such as India, China, and South Korea, Asia-Pacific is projected to expand at the fastest pace during the modular data center industry forecast period.


Driver: The demand for the energy-efficient data center is growing.

As of the growing number of environmental conservation and energy use regulations imposed by different governments around the world, modular data centers are in high demand. The modular data center's enclosed space is easier to cool than a single wide room, and built-in aisle containment reduces hot and cold air mixing. According to data from the Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI), modular data centers are 40% more energy-efficient than the flexible data center. As a result, modular data centers are more energy efficient and use fewer resources than conventional data center’s, assisting companies in meeting their intrinsic requirement for reduced energy usage.

Restraint: Customer buying opportunities are limited by vendor lock-ins.

Data centers were often built to order, with the possibility of modification based on the user's needs. These features allowed data center customers to request data center’s that could respond to their needs as well as the organization's overall operational environment. Modern modular data centers, on the other hand, lack this ability to fully customize due to their rigid design and prefabricated modules. Furthermore, the modular data center's uniform structure limits the enterprise to a single manufacturer and prevents the customer from introducing new technologies from other suppliers to optimize the data center. This lack of customization and limitation in buying options is expected to hinder the global modular data center market growth.

Opportunity: Modular data centers are in high demand from colocation providers.

To reduce the risk of downtime, best-in-class modular data centers have built-in cooling and power redundancies. They have what is known as concurrent maintainability in more detail. Organizations may scale data halls incrementally without losing reliability or the freedom to optimize the environment flexibly, to modularly built colocation data center. The modular service model includes features such as round-the-clock protection, environmental optimization, redundancy, concurrent maintainability, carrier neutrality, and much more. As a result, colocation vendors are expected to open up a plethora of options for the deployment of the modular data center.
