The Colocation Facilities industry has fared extremely well over the past five years. Because the industry primarily houses servers for industry customers, the continual move to overall online operations has caused an increase in demand for server space. As such, greater demand from data processing and hosting services, an increase in the percentage of services conducted online and private investment in computers and software have all benefited industry revenue. In the next five years, revenue growth will be supported by an increase in the number of businesses and the higher price of electric power.
Industry firms own and operate data centers that primarily lease equipment space to customers. Companies in the industry also offer auxiliary services including power management, security and network neutrality. Customers generally use industry services as off-site data storage to back up their data or to allow them to focus on other parts of their business without paying for these operations.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
