The global data center infrastructure products market will grow at a moderate pace despite data center consolidation, high capital expenditure, and end-user skepticism toward new or unfamiliar solutions, according to a new report from Frost & Sullivan.

Increasing demand for data storage, security and speed is creating an unprecedented growth in data traffic, ultimately driving data center infrastructure growth, the firm said. Modular solutions, in particular, will encourage capacity expansion and ensure seamless integration with existing data center infrastructure.

While North America accounts for the highest revenues, emerging markets will grow at a faster rate, and China will lead the Asia-Pacific region, said Gautham Gnanajothi, energy research analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

“Edge computing and disaster recovery applications offer tremendous potential, indicating a shift toward bringing data centers closer to end users,” Gnanajothi said.

The study, “Global Data Center Infrastructure Solutions Market,” highlights trends in the data center infrastructure solutions market and provides a five-year forecast on the market metrics, covering data center cooling, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), and rack segments.
