Posted by Ehtesham Peerzade on February 22nd, 2021

Market Highlights

Modular data centers augment the speed of deployment at a lower cost and improvise the flexibility of operations. Modular data center providers bid both separate module and all-in-one consolidated modules of individual functions like power systems, cooling systems, and IT servers. Mounting need for energy-efficient and fast deployable data centers, coupled with upscaling demand for reduction in capital expenditure are both chief factors responsible for the burgeoning modular data center market.

As per the latest MRFR analysis, the global modular data center market is estimated expand at 24.40% CAGR during the forecast period of 2018-2025. A modular data center approach incorporates contained units which are primarily used in the form of prefabricated modules. Such a prefabricated infrastructure is used to deploy a standardized infrastructure in the form of modules.

However, a few factors are restricting the ascent of the global modular data center market. Vendor lock-in issue is anticipated to resist the adoption of modular data centers by many market vendors in the forthcoming years. Whereas, snowballing deployment of modular data centers in disaster-prone areas is estimated to provide traction to market growth.

Key Players

Some significant players prevalent in the global modular data center market include IBM Corporation (US), Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd (China), Dell Technologies Inc. (US), Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (US), Eaton Corporation PLC (Ireland), CommScope Holding Company, Inc (US), Cannon Technologies Ltd (UK), Schneider Electric (France), Flexenclosure AB (Sweden), BladeRoom Group Ltd (UK), and Silent-Aire Limited Partnership (Canada).

Detailed Regional Analysis

The global modular data centers market share is segmented into the regions of Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, North America, and Latin America. North America held the foremost share of the global modular data centers market at the beginning of the assessment period. The region held around 45% share of the market. It boasted a market value of USD 6,284.6 million in 2017 and is expected to register a whopping 22.65% CAGR during the review period.

Asia Pacific held the second-largest share of the global modular data centers market at the beginning of the forecast period, accounting for around 26% share of the market. The APAC modular data center market was valued at USD 3,560.6 million in the base year of 2017. The region is also estimated to retain its position in the market. Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at 27.2% CAGR during the forecast period.


The global modular data centers market is segmented on the basis of component, data center size, tier type, end-users, and region. Based on component, the global modular data centers market is segmented into functional module and services. Functional modules inside containerized modular data centers comprise an outer enclosure for power systems, cooling equipment, and housing IT servers. Two types of containerized functional module solutions include all-in-one functional module and individual functional module. All-in-one functional modules usually require additional supporting elements present outside the module like chiller or generator.

The individual functional module is further sub-segmented into electrical module, IT module, and mechanical module. The services segment is sub-segmented into integration and deployment, consulting, and infrastructure management.

Based on data center size, the global modular data centers market is segmented into large data centers, mid-sized data centers, and enterprise data centers. Based on tier type, the global modular data center market is segmented into tier 1, tier 2, tier 3, and tier 4. Based on end-users, the global modular data center market is segmented into government and defense, healthcare, education, BFSI, IT and telecom, retail, energy, and manufacturing.

Industry Update

Sept 2019: Delta Electronics recently signed a contract with HTC to build the first 2N certified data center in Vietnam. The new data center will operate as per Tier 3 standards of Uptime Institute.
