Latin America data center colocation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.15% during the period 2022-2027

By on June 24, 2022 0


The factors driving the market are: • Increased deployment of submarine cables. • Booming digital economy in Latin America. • Tax incentives improving data centers.

New York, June 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Latin America Data Center Colocation Market – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027” –
• COVID-19 drives demand for data centers

• Some of the major drivers for the growth of the Latin America data center colocation market include increased digitalization in multiple countries, large-scale cloud service provider colocation data centers, and growth in connectivity.
• Some colocation data centers are developing wholesale colocation space at their facilities in multiple countries to meet the growing demand for colocation from cloud service providers such as Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Google, Huawei, AWS and government entities .
• Computing power in data centers has increased dramatically due to an increase in demand for cloud services, big data, and IoT, which has led to an increase in rack power density. Increased data bandwidth and high performance computing will challenge data center operators to have an efficient infrastructure to handle any downtime.
• COVID-19 has been a boon for the entire industry, accelerating digital transformation initiatives across Latin America, increasing demand for data center services and driving capacity utilization among data center facilities. flatsharing
• The market is attracting investment from cloud service providers such as Google, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and Tencent. These providers will continue to drive colocation demand in the region during the forecast period.
• Governments in the region are contributing to the growth of data center construction by offering several types of tax benefits.
• The region is experiencing significant connectivity initiatives with growth in submarine cable deployments. In Latin America, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Mexico, Ecuador and other Latin American countries have cable connectivity under -marine, connecting Europe, Africa and the United States.


In 2021, local and global operators dominated the market through retail colocation and construction activities. However, the presence of cloud service providers is gaining traction and is expected to boost wholesale colocation in the region. Brazil, Chile and Mexico are experiencing growth in demand from cloud service providers; the wholesale colocation market is therefore flourishing in these countries.

The data center colocation market in Latin America is seeing significant growth in the purchase of lithium-ion UPS systems. Most edge plant deployments will include single-phase lithium-ion UPS systems and monitored and switched PDUs. Hence, the emergence of edge facilities will significantly boost the growth of the market.

Data centers are investing more in electrical infrastructure with minimal N+1 redundancy. Most installations are installed with N+N or 2N redundancy for the electrical infrastructure with more redundancy for UPS systems and generators. AECOM, Aceco TI, Constructora Sudamericana, Fluor Corporation, Holder Construction, Jacobs Engineering Group, Quark and ZFB Group are construction contractors building data centers in Latin America.
