Colombia Data Center Market - Investment Analysis & Growth Opportunities 2023-2028

The Colombia data center market size will reach USD 705 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 8.17% from 2022 to 2028.

The country has the fourth-largest economy among all Latin American countries. The economic freedom score of Colombia stands at 65.1, higher than the world’s average, attracting data center investments into the country. Organizations across sectors such as BFSI and IT are migrating their on-premises workloads to the cloud to enjoy the associated benefits of a cloud landscape, such as reduced costs and increased flexibility. Huawei has planned to expand into the Latin American market with its first Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Colombia, offering cloud services.

Colombia offers excellent connectivity due to the presence of Atlantic and Pacific submarine cables. The country has around ten submarine cables, such as AMX-1, ARCOS, CFX-1, Colombia Festoon, and GlobeNet, among others which are in operation; two upcoming submarine cables are in the pipeline. Further, steps are being taken for the decarbonization of the energy transmission system of the country as the government is working on transitioning from the usage of fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. In December 2022, Elecnor inaugurated one of the largest wind farms in Colombia, consisting of 10 wind turbines with an investment of over USD 18.9 million.
