Global data centre infrastructure market to exceed $15bn by 2014: report

The uninterruptible power supplies hold the major market share, worth more than $8bn in 2011

By CBR Staff Writer

Worldwide data centre infrastructure market is expected to cross $15bn by 2014, rising from approximately $13bn in 2011, according to a report by IMS Research.

The infrastructure include power and cooling products which support data centres and the study assess the market for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), floor and cabinet-level power distribution, racks and enclosures, and cooling products.

According to report, Data Center Infrastructure Yearbook, the UPS is has major share in the data centre infrastructure market which was worth more than $8bn in 2011.

The report forecasts that there will be highest growth for products that are used to help improve efficiency in data centres.

IMS Research associate director Jason dePreaux said mobile data, electronic health records, and richer internet connectivity drive data processing and storage needs which, in turn, requires more data centres.

"At the same time, new server generations offer greater performance per watt which somewhat mitigates the need for additional critical infrastructure." dePreaux said

"The cloudy economic picture severely dampens companies willingness to spend on capital intensive projects like data centers."
