Asia Pacific* is continuing to witness aggressive expansion across primary and secondary data centre markets with 9.7GW operational, 3.3GW under construction and 8.5GW in planned stages across the region. 

The usual primary markets, Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney and Tokyo, continue to experience growth despite headwinds originating from a lack of land parcels and power availability. As a result, ancillary locations are being evaluated as part of expansion strategies. The moratorium’s cap on Singapore’s IT capacity has led to unmet demand in the market, which has spilt over into nearshore markets such as Johor, which is seeing a huge pipeline under development and commitments to land banks. Similarly, Greater Jakarta’s large pipeline is driven by its central geographic location in South-East Asia and the country’s immense population growth has sustained its appeal to major investors and operators.

Global cloud service providers (CSP) continue to show a marked interest in secondary markets across the region. Hyperscale CSPs have planned presence in the secondary markets of Auckland, Bangkok, Busan, Kuala Lumpur, Osaka, Pune and Taipei.  The tendency for colocation operators, developers and investors to follow CSPs into new frontiers with their own data centre deployments will see secondary markets attract new players and witness rapid growth over the next few years.

The Asia Pacific data centre region is experiencing varying speeds of development and so, for the first time, we have introduced our Asia Pacific Data Centre Markets Maturity Index, to track the evolution of a number of notable markets each quarter. This report will delve into 12 notable markets: Tokyo, Mumbai, Sydney, Singapore, Seoul, Johor, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Auckland, and Ho Chi Minh City. 

*For all analysis, Asia Pacific region includes Australia, Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam only.
