Dublin, Oct. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "US Data Center Colocation Market - Industry Outlook & Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The U.S. data center colocation market is estimated to reach a value of $11.54 billion by 2028 from $7.82 billion in 2022, growing with a CAGR of 6.70%

The rise in coverage of 5G and its deployment in the region will attract more edge data center investment across the country. The deployment of submarine cables such as SEALink, Bifrost, and others, which are expected to be live in coming years, will help the country establish a better connection with the rest of the world.

The U.S. government initiated several schemes and incentives to attract data center investments. Arizona plans to extend its data center tax breaks by ten years up to 2033. A data center operator must invest a minimum of USD 25 million in a location with a population of 800,000 or less to be eligible for the tax breaks. Alternatively, the operator must invest a minimum of USD 50 million in a location with a population of over 800,000.

Across the U.S. data center colocation market, all colocation companies seek to use renewable energy as their priority power source. For instance, in April 2022, CyrusOne collaborated with Gexa Energy, a NextEra Energy subsidiary, to procure solar (30 MW) and wind (10 MW) energy for its North Texas data centers.

Operators are keenly interested in the Southeastern, especially in Virginia. They make substantial investments to expand their presence and market share in the area. The Western U.S. region is a full-grown colocation market that includes Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and California. These states are home to numerous data center facilities offering colocation services to businesses and organizations in the area.

The U.S. data center colocation market operators see the Midwestern U.S. as a major hotspot. They build facilities in prime locations, such as Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Ohio, to take advantage of the region's potential. The edge data center market is projected to experience substantial growth in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, greatly improving connectivity in the northeastern US.

The data center space will likely increase in three key locations: Phoenix, Arizona, and Northern Virginia. These regions are major data center locations, attracting substantial investments and attention from colocation providers.

CyrusOne, DataBank, Digital Realty, Equinix, NTT Global Data Centers, Aligned, American Tower, CloudHQ, Cologix, Compass Datacenters, COPT Data Center Solutions, CoreSite, Cyxtera Technologies, DartPoints, DC BLOX, EdgeConneX, Prime Data Centers, and others are prominent operators in the U.S. data center colocation market.

Both wholesale and retail colocation vendors are expected to thrive due to increased demand in the U.S. data center colocation market. Various sectors, including BFSI, IT/telecom, and cloud, drive the demand for colocation services.
