The TCL Emerging Markets Data Centre – from 2016 to 2021 report is an extensively revised report based on the last TCL Emerging Markets Data Centre – 2015 to 2020 report - which was first published in early 2015.
This 2016 version of the report has been extensively revised - with seven large new country markets added - including the markets of: Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria & South Africa.
All of the new Country Markets have been selected on the amount of potential forecast future growth coupled with the arrival of new Carrier Neutral Data Centre specialists as a sign of market maturity. New Carrier Neutral Data Centre facilities are developed as the IT segment reaches maturity, with the initial Data Centre facilities typically being Carrier Based (Telecoms Provider) facilities.
TCL has also updated the profiles for the Bulgaria, Russia, South Africa and Turkey country markets, which remain in the report from 2015. However, TCL has omitted the smaller Data Centre Country Markets of Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and the Ukraine from the 2016 report, the information on these markets will be part of the Appendix.
The forecasts for Data Centre space and pricing in the report are based on a “bottom up” approach. Every known Data Centre provider in each country has been included in the research analysis to provide a total base line Data Centre raised floor capacity and Data Centre Customer Power (in m2 and MW respectively) and with pricing for each country market.
Altogether almost 200 Data Centre providers of rack space are included in the TCL survey across the 10 countries – with approximately 353 identified Data Centre facilities included altogether (as some Data Centre operators have multiple facilities in some countries) with a total of over 502,000 m2 of Data Centre raised floor space and 702 MW of Data Centre Customer Power (DCCP) as of the end of 2016.
