The Latin America data center colocation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.15% during 2022-2027

The factors driving the market are: • Increased Deployment of Submarine Cables. • Thriving Digital Economy in Latin America. • Tax Incentives Enhancing Data Centers.

New York, June 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Latin America Data Center Colocation Market - Industry Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027" -
• COVID-19 Driving Data Center Demand

• Some of the primary drivers of the Latin America data center colocation market growth include increased digitalization across several countries, hyperscale cloud service providers’ colocation data centers, and growth in connectivity.
• Some colocation data centers are developing wholesale colocation space in their facilities across several countries to support growing colocation demand from cloud service providers such as Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Google, Huawei, AWS, and government entities.
• The computing power in data centers has grown significantly due to an increase in the demand for cloud services, big data, and IoT, which has led to an increase in rack power density. The increase in data bandwidth and high-performance computing will drive the data center operators to procure efficient infrastructure to manage any downtime.
• COVID-19 has been a boon across the industry, accelerating digital transformation initiatives across Latin America, increasing data center service demand, and driving the utilization of capacity among colocation facilities
• The market attracts investments from cloud service providers such as Google, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, and Tencent. These providers will continue to fuel the colocation demand across the region in the forecast period.
• Governments across the region are aiding the growth in the data center construction by offering several kinds of tax benefits.
• The region is witnessing significant initiatives for connectivity with growth in submarine cable deployments. In Latin America, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Mexico, Ecuador, and other Latin American countries have submarine cable connectivity, connecting Europe, Africa, and the US.


In 2021, local and global operators dominated the market through retail colocation and construction activities. However, the presence of cloud service providers is gaining traction and is expected to boost the wholesale colocation in the region. Brazil, Chile, and Mexico are witnessing growth in demand from cloud service providers; hence the wholesale colocation market is flourishing in these countries.

The Latin America data center colocation market is witnessing significant growth in the procurement of lithium-ion UPS systems. Most edge facility deployment will include single-phase lithium-ion UPS and monitored and switched PDUs. Therefore, the emergence of edge facilities will be a significant boost to the market growth.

Data centers invest more in power infrastructure with a minimum of N+1 redundancy. Most facilities are installed with N+N or 2N redundancy for power infrastructure with more redundancy for UPS and generator systems. AECOM, Aceco TI, Constructora Sudamericana, Fluor Corporation, Holder Construction, Jacobs Engineering Group, Quark, and ZFB Group are some construction contractors building data centers in Latin America
