The micro mobile data centre market size is expected to grow from $3 billion in 2020 to $6.5 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.6 per cent during the forecast period, according to a research report by the Business Research Company.
The report suggests that the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the role that micro mobile data centres play for organisations worldwide. The exponential growth in the amount of data consumed and generated by various organisations and individuals has pushed the rise in demand for data storage leading to the increase in the number of reliable and highly available data centres.
The micro mobile data centre is a self-contained infrastructural design achieved by integrating the storage, processing, and networking modules required to run indoor and outdoor applications in a secure computing environment. Micro mobile data centres are available in standardised prefabricated sizes that enable the data centre owners to save their capital investment and the time needed in building data centres by the traditional approach. The size and flexibility features of micro mobile data centres make them ideal for use in applications, such as instant data centres, remote office and branch office, and edge computing. The growing requirement for high performing, energy-efficient and cost-effective data centre solutions is the major growth driver of the micro mobile data centre market.
The demand for computing power is increasing in various sectors, including industries, offices, distribution warehouses, telecom clouds, and others. Micro mobile data centres are easy-to-procure, simple-to-deploy, and are integrated systems that are easily scalable. With the benefits that micro mobile data centres offer, customers are able to expand network edges and provide more computing.
The global micro mobile data centre market by region covers 5 major geographic regions, namely, North America, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The Asia Pacific is expected to grow the highest owing to the rising adoption of advanced technologies, such as IoT and edge computing.
