Western Europe Colocation Services 2013–2019 Forecast
This IDC study presents a forecast for the Western European retail colocation services market from 2013 to 2019. The forecast is broken down into the four major countries and carrier-neutral versus carrier-based providers. It also provides an overview of leading providers Equinix, TelecityGroup, and Interxion, as well as colocation-related results from IDC's European Enterprise Communications Survey in 2014.
"The colocation services industry has evolved from delivering space and power to providing a platform that connects customers to a wide range of IT and cloud providers," said James Eibisch, research director, IDC's European Telecom and Networking. "It remains a capital-intensive business with high barriers to entry, and with high demand from cloud, Internet, and finance companies, we see strong and long-term growth in the market."
