African Data Centre Market Examined in New Tariff Consultancy Study Published at MarketPublishers.com01 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – At present, the African data centre market is seeing an increase in capacity and revenue, with multiple providers being available. Forecasts say data centre raised floor space across the continent will grow by 37% over the 5-year period to the end of 2017 – a 7% y-o-y increase – from 84,000 square metres to 115,000 square metres. Data centres’ revenues are projected to increase by 84% by 2017 – a 17% y-o-y rise – from USD 203 million to USD 373 million per annum. South Africa remains the most developed data centre market in Africa, which has also witnessed a number of carrier neutral data centre facilities emerge with alternative network operators.
Data centre development is also being supported by the introduction of new submarine cable systems into the region. However, the lack of reliable power infrastructure in most African countries such as Nigeria poses a challenge to this market development.
New study “Data Centre Africa - 2012” worked out by Tariff Consultancy provides a thorough examination of all the identifiable Data Centres across 9 African countries – Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda. The report provides a survey of each of these countries’ key data centres with indicative monthly per rack pricing as well as a five-year forecast for raised floor data centre space and revenues from the end of 2012 to the end of 2017.
