Data Center Market in India – Dynamics
The adoption of cloud-based services is growing significantly worldwide. There is a growing demand for IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS among enterprise customers in India adopting public and private cloud services during the forecast period. In terms of current scenario, adoption of SaaS dominates the Indian market adding a revenue of around $850 million in 2018.Increase in internet population, use of smart devices, and social media growth as prompted both central and state government to migrate from the existing traditional service offerings to digital platforms. In 2018 budge, the central government has emphasized the importance of increasing cloud and data center investment in the Indian market. Back in 2011, multiple investment on data center was identified among state government across the country in multiple states through State Data Centre (SDC) guided by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. Government also started an initiative namely, MeghRaj to make sure that service providers hosting government-based cloud application should store the related data inside the country.The increase in demand for cloud computing, big data, and IoT services has been aiding the market growth. Storage systems that are used in modern data centers include, Storage Area Networking (SAN), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). It can also be classified into storage systems based on hard disk drives (HDD), Solid State Device (SSD), tape storage, object storage, and hybrid storage arrays.
Data Center Market in India – Segmentation
This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the market by electrical construction, mechanical construction, IT infrastructure, general construction, tier standards, and geography. The India data center market by electric infrastructure is segmented into UPS systems, generators, transfer switches & switchgear, Rack PDU, and other electrical infrastructure. UPS systems dominated the largest India market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of more than 13% during the forecast period. The installation of large UPS systems that are capable of supplying MW power is kept in a centralized location to provide backup power for the entire facility during an outage in the India market.In the Indian market, diesel generators dominate over 95% of the market, where the use of gas generators is very low. The increasing construction of large facilities will lead to the adoption of medium- and high-voltage switchgear in the market over the next few years. The construction of large datacenters will lead to the adoption of rack PDUs with the capacity of over 10 kW in the India data center market after 2020.
The IT infrastructure segment in the India data center market is classified into server, storage, and network. The network infrastructure is the fastest growing segment in the Indian market, at a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period. The increase in the adoption of a variety of configuration, with one ethernet switch comprising multiple ports (10/40/25/50/100) in a single switch, is fueling the growth of this segment.The rising adoption of all-flash and hybrid storage arrays is driving the growth of the market. The installation of the server infrastructure that offers seamless integration of form factors, energy consumption, and virtualization technologies is fueling the growth of the India data center market.The India data center market by mechanical infrastructure is categorized into cooling systems, racks, and other infrastructure. Data center cooling systems segment occupied the majority of the market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of over 14% during the forecast period. Most of the facilities in India are powered by air-based cooling systems. However, it is expected the use of water-based cooling will increase in the market during the forecast period.
The vendors are constantly innovating in the rack segment with designs that provides up to 80% airflow perforation, enhanced cabling channels, and support more weight capacity in the market. The implementation of other infrastructure with the redundancy of N+N configuration will lead to the development of the India data center market.The general construction segment in the India data center market is divided into building development, installation and commissioning services, building design, physical security, and DCIM. DCIM is the fastest growing segment in the India market, at a CAGR of around 21% during the forecast period. The increasing use of DCIM solution to control power consumption, improve efficiency, and increase operational capabilities is fueling the adoption of these systems in the Indian market.The large-scale data center deployment is likely to involve the installation of on-site renewable power sources such as solar energy to partially or entirely power operations in the India market. The implementation of security systems that comprise of sensors which are integrated with the existing DCIM solutions for real-time remote monitoring benefits will transform the India data center market.
The India data center market by tier standard is classified into Tier I & II, Tier III, and Tier IV. Tier III segment dominated the largest market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of approximately 14% during the forecast period. Majority of the new facilities in India are designed of Tier III standards with a minimum of N+1 redundancy and can be reconfigured with up to 2N redundancy as the demand arises.The increasing investments from global cloud providers and leading colocation providersare fueling the need for facilities of Tier IV standard in the market. Companies such as CtrlS, GPX Global Systems, and Pi Datacenters are investing in the development of facilities of Tier IV category in the India data center market.
