Discover the Future of Data Centers in India:

A Surge in Growth

In the span of a mere decade, India’s data center industry is in the midst of an exciting growth spurt, propelled by the digital revolution, cloud technology adoption, and supportive government initiatives. Witnessing a remarkable surge in market size from US$ 4.04 billion in 2022 to an anticipated US$ 8.10 billion by 2028, the sector is advancing at a rapid CAGR of 12.20%.

The industry’s upward trajectory is being shaped by key trends like the increasing popularity of colocation services, a commitment to sustainability, embracing cutting-edge technologies, and the growing need for edge data centers. The integration of transformative technologies such as AI and IoT is poised to further amplify the demand for robust data center infrastructures, positioning India as a pivotal player in the global data center arena.

Challenges in this burgeoning sector, including the scarcity of skilled labor, elevated energycosts, and infrastructural limitations, are opening doors for substantial investments in human resource enhancement, energy-efficient solutions, and innovative infrastructural advancements. Illustratively, ICRA forecasts a fivefold expansion in capacity for the Indian data center industry, attracting investments upward of 1.2 lakh crore.
