Latin America Data Center Market Outlook 2021-2026 Report: Adoption of Cloud and Big Data Drives Data Center Market

Dublin, February 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Latin America Data Center Market – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026” report was added to offer.

The Latin America data center market by investment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% during 2021-2026.

The Latin American data center market is seeing increased investment in the deployment of modular, containerized and POD data centers. While most of the facilities in the region are entirely new construction types, the development of modular data centers is steadily increasing, thus contributing to the growth of the data center market in Latin America.

Telecommunications providers are increasingly inclined to adopt modular models in Latin America. The modular infrastructure is energy efficient and is designed to support high rack density. The operating expenses of a modular information center are about 30% lower than those of traditional brick and mortar installations. Therefore, the demand for modular infrastructure is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Latin America Data Center Market Segmentation

The Latin America Data Center market research report includes detailed segmentation by IT infrastructure, electrical infrastructure, mechanical infrastructure, cooling technique, cooling systems, general construction, level standards, geography. The server infrastructure market in Latin America has experienced strong growth in recent years.

Purchases of ODM servers by hyperscale data centers and other companies are expected to increase over the next 2-3 years. Server systems based on x86 architecture servers are the most popular systems among enterprises and managed hosting service providers. Most modern operators adopt a server infrastructure that matches their workload requirements.

The adoption of VRLA battery-based static UPS systems designed with capacity up to 750 kVA with N + 1 redundant configuration is growing in Chile. Most of the installations are equipped with UPS systems based on VRLA batteries up to 500 kVA with an N + 1 redundant configuration in Colombia. The market is likely to see the adoption of diesel generators and transfer switches and switchgear with minimal N + N redundancy in data centers.

The demand for monitored and measured PDUs is expected to increase over the forecast period due to the need to reduce OPEX in data centers. Several facilities in Mexico are equipped with UPS systems up to 1000 kVA. Large operators are likely to purchase UPS systems over 1000 kVA. The market will see the adoption of diesel generators with minimal N + N redundancy in data centers.

The majority of facilities in Brazil use water-based cooling systems, especially evaporative cooling, which partially supports free cooling. Large data centers in Brazil are expected to include CRAH units, while smaller facilities will likely adopt CRAC units during the forecast period. There is also increased adoption of evaporative coolers which include partial cooling with CRAC indoor units in some Latin American countries. Some facility operators use a combination of CRAH and direct expansion cooling techniques. In Chile, data centers use chilled water cooling systems and air cooling systems with CRAH units, free cooling units with CRAC units or free cooling chillers.

The Latin American market is expected to see an increase in the construction of entirely new projects. Modular construction is expected to add significant investment in the market during the forecast period. Construction contractors in Chile typically develop entirely new, modular data centers. In terms of physical security, the adoption of security cameras and access control systems for 24/7 surveillance is growing across the region. The use of infrastructure-based monitoring solutions is also high in the market; however, integrated facility monitoring is expected to increase over the forecast period.

4. out of 185 Tier III certified installations in Latin America are located in Brazil. Most data centers are built with a minimum of N + 1 redundancy in a Tier III compliant power infrastructure. Ascenty, Axtel, ODATA, Equinix, Angola Cables, CenturyLink, GTD Group, Telefonica and KIO Networks are the main data center operators certified by the Uptime Institute. Several data centers built in recent times are Tier III compliant due to an increased need for redundant components to at least support critical applications in data centers. Level IV facilities are present in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
