As the largest data centre markets in the region face challenges when it came to site and power availability, operators have sought both new submarkets in major markets to grow as well as aggressive expansion into secondary and emerging markets across the region.
The top six markets in the region continued to experience growth despite headwinds originating from lack of available land sites, power availability and regulatory frameworks in certain locales. Combined, there is 3.1GW either under construction or in planning across these markets. In certain markets, data centre players have focused on developing in further outlying areas. One example of this is in Sydney, where land transactions and newly announced projects have been growing in the far West of the market where land and infrastructure is more cost effective. Even markets that have experienced substantial barriers to entry are seeing new growth, with the primary example being Singapore. After the expiration of the data centre moratorium, new policies and parameters have reopened this key market to savvy developers who can satisfy the government’s new requirements.
