By Geography – Brazil is expected to reach the highest revenue of over $500 million during the forecast period.
Brazil is the leading country in terms of data center operations in Latin America. In 2017, Brazil’s colocation data centers reached 1.5 million square feet, consuming around 500 MW of power. The data center market annexed 360,000 square feet area of new data center space and consumed about 80MW of power in 2017. The most common cooling method used by the Brazilian data centers is water-based cooling systems, where other cooling methods are low.
By Electrical infrastructure – The UPS systems segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR around 12% during the forecast period.
The power infrastructure used in data centers comprises UPS systems, generators, transfer switches, and switchgears, rack PDUs, and others. UPS systems comprise components such as rectifiers to charge the battery and inverters to convert the power from DC to AC for the infrastructure. The use of UPS systems with batteries requires power for cooling, which increases the maintenance cost of the facility.
By General construction – The physical security segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of over 19% during the forecast period.
A physical security system in data centers includes four layers: perimeter security, building security, data hall security, and rack-level security. The investment in data center physical security systems depends on the facility in terms of retail colocation. The amount of security is higher than wholesale colocation. Since several data centers have been developed in rural areas, the need for security has also has increased.
