The H1 2021 edition of the Data Centre Trends Tracker identifies the key trends impacting the fifteen largest country Data Centre markets in Europe. The Tracker provides an up-to-date analysis of the largest third-party Data Centre markets as of the end of June 2021 and is updated every six months.
As of the end of June 2021 DCP has identified the following key Data Centre trends:
The growth in the secondary Data Centre markets is being driven by the construction of new large campus facilities, such as SINES 4.0 (Portugal), Aruba (Rome), Green Datacenter (Zurich), Echelon Data Centres (Arklow, Ireland) and Interxion (Madrid). The SINES 4.0 campus facility in Portugal is to have up to 450 MW of power when complete and has the potential to quadruple the total Data Centre capacity in Portugal. The growth in large-scale investment is partly being driven by new private equity investors who are launching hyperscale facilities in new markets for the first time.
The appetite for Data Centre investment is reflected in acquisition activity as existing providers including Nordic Region Data Centre Provider DigiPlex, Conapto (Sweden) and SuperNap (Italia) have been acquired by private equity or financial investors during 2021.
Not only is demand for new Data Centre facilities is set to continue to grow, but the supply of new Data Centre capacity in new markets indicates that cloud & content services are set to be distributed widely across more European markets in the future as well as in the traditional FLAP (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris) cities.
