Highest Growing Market



According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Micro Data Centers Market is accounted for $4.21 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $11.74 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 18.64% during the forecast period. A micro data center is a type of a modular system, used to provide extra resources for an enterprise as per the necessity. It offers various types of solutions to several types of problems. It helps to manage workload which is not managed by large modular data centers and to procure out dated facilities. They provide the power of a traditional data center with minimal capital investment even at remote locations. It allows vendors to enhance LoT functionality anywhere, anytime irrespective of native infrastructure capacity. They have integrated in-built power unit, cooling systems and network systems making them extremely easy to manage and install.

According to the China new data centre policies, the power usage effectiveness of the existing data centres should be below 1.4 and for the new data centres, it should be less than 1.3.


Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand for plug and play data centers

The data center is the heart of the organization. It stores the crucial information. It reduces the need for investments. They offer fully integrated and pre-tested solutions. They can easily scale up as per growing needs of organization and enables faster deployment. This plug and play approach is brilliant as they help in the deployment in just a few days which is fuelling the market growth.


Limited customer purchase options

The data centers are often built in order and offer the option of customization as per the user’s environment. They do not offer fully customized solutions and the flexibility of service provider due to standardized nature and prefabricated modules. They are restricted to a single vendor. This lack of customization and limitations in buying options are hindering the growth of the market.


Deployment of edge computing applications

The demand for computing is rising at a large pace in various sectors. The companies need higher density and high computing power. These micro data centers are easy to procure, simple to deploy and integrated systems which are easily scalable. They enable customers to expand network edges and provide more computing. This surge in demand for real time computing is anticipated to propel the growth of the market.


Integration with traditional data centers

Data center infrastructure management applications provide a central console for monitoring a range of resources. These are taken into consideration by the data center managers. If micro data center solution comes with its own data, it should support all the standards. Its integrations with traditional centers will complicate the exiting situation. This raises the operational costs and hampers the overall efficiency of the data center.

Covid-19 Impact

Data centers and micro data centers played a vital role for organizations worldwide during the covid-19 pandemic. The exponential growth in the amount of data consumed and generated by various organizations and individuals has increased the availability and reliability of the data centers. The pandemic disrupted the supply chain drastically. However, demand grown due to edge computing and remote office.

The government and defense segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The government and defense segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its dominance over the forecast period. Micro mobile data centers are very small in size compared to big data centers and are easy to move. They find significant application in the defense sector. Governments around the world are using MDC technology to create the basis for smart cities. All these factors are driving the market growth.

The up to 20 RU segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The up to 20 RU segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the increasing demand for lesser rack units (RU) data centers in the defense and IT and telecom sectors. It provides benefits such as high-range and greater capacities that can accommodate larger facilities which accelerates the growth of the market.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the early installation of micro mobile data centers. This region has massive investments in technological advancements. They are introducing innovative solutions in various regions to attract customers. This region is providing value for venture and IT organizations and thus propelling the market growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the numerous large industries. Industries such as IT and telecom, healthcare, oil and gas, and defense are increasingly incorporating micro mobile data centers in their operations. The presence of most of the key players are gaining large customer base which is witnessing lucrative growth in the market.
