The data center construction market has become increasingly appealing due to its potential for higher returns on investment (ROI) than other commercial and industrial properties. In 2022, the market experienced substantial growth in the colocation sector, which can be attributed to factors such as accelerated digitalization resulting from the pandemic, initiatives taken by countries to advance technological infrastructure, the implementation of cutting-edge technologies like IoT, big data, 5G, and edge computing, and notable investments made by cloud service providers in different regions.

The European data center market witnessed increased investment in countries such as Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Switzerland. Multiple projects are being carried out by colocation, cloud, telecommunication, and internet service providers. In Central and Eastern European countries, such as Poland and the Czech Republic, the reason for increased investments is the increased unavailability and high cost of land for data center development, especially from a scalability perspective. In such cases, operators wanting to expand their presence in the European market would prefer to invest in these secondary markets, with ample land availability, access to power, and government support to set up data center operations.

In 2022, hyperscale investments in the US were over 25 projects by major operators, including Meta (Facebook), Google, Microsoft, and Amazon Web Services. In 2022, Meta (Facebook) led the investment category with 11 data center expansions, under construction, and planned projects. Microsoft followed Meta (Facebook) with investments in around 8 data center projects. In 2022, several hyperscale operators announced expanding, developing, or acquiring additional land for potential future data center developments. Some of these operators will likely expand their existing data center facilities during the forecast period instead of developing new ones. However, hyperscale data center investments will likely slow down after 3 to 4 years.

Recently, Meta (Facebook) announced its plan to pause expanding and constructing new data center facilities across the US and the world. The company aims to design a new AI data center and redesign its data center facilities for artificial intelligence workloads. However, we believe that the hyperscale investment by Meta (Facebook) in general will come down in the next 1-2 years until the AI data center design is finalized by Meta (Facebook). The recently announced and planned data center facilities are expected to be delayed. Some facilities that were paused include Huntsville, Alabama, and Temple, Texas.

Hyperscale providers in the region are continuously expanding into the region. For instance, AWS announced its plan to invest around $2.4 billion in the UK for building and operating data centers. There is an entry of new cloud providers in the market, such as Micro Focus, which will aid in increasing the Western Europe data center construction market area.
