Data Centres in Australia and New Zealand forecast to grow 60% by 2015
Sydney/Auckland, 28 March 2011 – A new report by consulting firm BroadGroup forecasts sustained growth in data centre capacity will grow around 60% across the Australian and New Zealand by 2015.
BroadGroup’s report – the third on the Australia New Zealand markets - finds that 21 new players have entered the sector bringing the total to almost 90 centres in 13 cities. New South Wales has the largest concentration of data centres. New Zealand’s expected growth will lag behind Australia’s for a couple of years.
This expansion has led to significant build, spurred by high occupancy rates and general demand. Yet as in other metropolitan areas worldwide, power supplies are dwindling in the key cities and particularly in the central business districts (CBDs). The significant unmet demand for data centres is driving major growth programmes by market participants across all segments.
Philip Low, BroadGroup’s CEO, said: “The top 10 players across both markets control 65% of total space. With a proliferation of smaller data centres across a large number of cities, we expect some further consolidation. Market demand is vibrant with significant build expected in coming years.”
The report provides an insight into the market environment, modular deployment in both markets, capacity and player profiles. It suggests that capacity will increase significantly in Australia by 2012, with New Zealand lagging in development until around 2014-2015. Across both markets the report forecasts an increase in space of approximately 60% by 2015.
