Digital transformation progress demands more capacity, security, and response capacity for data processing.
It’s no secret for IT professionals that demand for hosting, traffic, and data security services will be increasingly higher over the next years. We see more than ever that in order to perform their businesses, companies rely on information crossing and analyses, for which speed, agility, and trust are essential. And this is where data centers, cloud computing, and investment thereon play their part.

Worldwide advances of 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence increasingly call for more data traffic capacity, low latency, robustness, and reliability to support and backup this growing need. And Latin America is no stranger to this trend. These demands are more complex in the region due to legacy systems integration, thus creating hybrid-digital infrastructure demands, not always easy to integrate in the most traditional public clouds.

In Brazil, for example, further to the General Data Protection Law (LGPD -for its acronym in Portuguese) enactment, in 2021, which mandated companies to gather and process sensitive and personal information, the data center market registered an increased demand, since this law demands higher investments from companies to create reliability through data protection. In other words, the data center and treatment market is very hectic


Forecasts encourage the sector

According to Arizton, the data center market should reach US$3,69 billion by 2027. To have an idea of this growth, the same consulting firm estimates the current sector’s value in US$2,23 billion. Please note that Brazil is the biggest representative for this sector in Latin America, primarily due to its mainland territory, large population, and significant economy.

The scenario is promising for Latin America as well. According to CBRE consulting, the Latin American market for data centers grew more than 20% during the first half of 2022. And based on ReportLinker’s report more evolution is expected, estimating a 6.97% percent regional growth for this sector from this year until 2027, something driven by the companies’ need to boost digital transformation by means of cloud computing solutions, and hosting and colocation models.


Is your company buying infrastructure?

Certainly, you heard about Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and this cloud model is a growing trend. According to IDC, cloud consumption by the Telecom sector should grow an average 32.2% in IaaS over the next five years. Additionally, virtualization of telecommunications networks is one of the main trends identified this year, in Brazil.

IaaS market is expected to keep on growing as the cloud becomes the main infrastructure to meet the latest technology’s needs. Working in the cloud brings

among many other benefits, the scalability and composition that innovations and advanced applications need.
