Datacentres – The India Growth Story

Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

In my last blog “Datacentres – The Global Growth Story”, I had discussed the key global markets that account for majority of the global datacentre investments. This one would summarise how India is positioned in the global datacentre story. Though India currently accounts for a small share of the global market at around 2% as of 2019, the market is expected to grow at a fast pace in the coming years driven by India’s growing data economy.



This rise in data economy coupled with an increasing focus on data protection and data localisation policies is driving the demand for datacentres in the country which is expected to touch ~5 billion by 2025 growing at a 2X CAGR compared to the global market over 2019 – 2025.

Broadly the datacentre market in the country is divided into captive or outsourced. Captive datacentres are owned and operated by enterprises themselves. While the outsourced datacentres are developed and operated by third-party service providers and can be classified as – Hosting Services, Colocation Services and Hybrid Services.
