Denmark Data Center Market - Investment Analysis & Growth Opportunities 2022-2027

Denmark data center market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.97% during 2021-2027.


In Denmark, Copenhagen is the prominent data center investment location as it has robust fiber connectivity, 5G network services, and power utility infrastructure. Regarding connectivity, there is a significant amount of submarine deployments in the country. For instance, Havhingsten was launched by Meta in collaboration with Aqua Comm and Bulk Fibre. Denmark offers cold climate conditions, which operators can use for cooling their centers (free cooling). Around 85% of free cooling is provided by the country, helping to cut off energy consumption by about 50%.

In terms of 5G network services, according to Danish Technological Institute, the country’s 5G coverage stands at 99.3%. The prominent telecommunication operators, such as Telenor Group, Hi3G Denmark, and Telia, deploy 5G services across Odense, Copenhagen, and Aalborg. Denmark generates more than 80% of power from renewable energy sources. Colocation operators such as GlobalConnect, Digital Realty, Colt Data Centre Services, and STACK Infrastructure (DigiPlex) are procuring renewable energy sources for powering their facilities.


a) Denmark data center market is one of the emerging markets in the Nordic region. 5G deployments, adoption of cloud-based services, adoption of IoT and Big Data, and investments in renewable energy are the major factors supporting the increase in data center investments.

b) In Denmark, the ICT industry has immense growth, valued at around USD 35 billion in 2021. According to IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking, Denmark ranked 4th in digital competitiveness among 64 countries globally in 2022.

c) Denmark is home to colocation operators such as GlobalConnect, Digital Realty, NNIT, Cibicom A/S, Bulk Infrastructure, Colt DCS, and Telia Group.

d) Due to the Russia-Ukraine war, some European countries may face electricity shortages because of the uncertain operation of Nord Stream 1 (offshore natural gas pipelines in Europe). Though Denmark currently has sufficient electricity supply, in the future, the electricity supply may fall short, which will drive up the price of electricity.

e) Cloud demand is significantly increasing in the country, due to which major cloud service providers are planning to set up cloud regions. There are significant investments by hyperscale operators such as Meta, Google, and Apple. In addition, Google and Meta (Facebook) by acquiring land for the expansion of their facilities and centers developments in the country.
