Latin America Green Data Center Market Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027 – Major Colocation and Large Scale Data Center Operators Drive the Market

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “Latin America Green Data Center Market – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027” has been added to from offer.

The market is expected to reach a value of $825 million in 2027, from $455 million in 2021, with a CAGR of 10.4%

The growing digitization of the region, its previously underserved status, the shift to the cloud, the growing popularity of IoT and big data, the emergence of 5G networks, the COVID-19 pandemic and the demand for high-speed streaming. throughput of online entertainment content are some of them. of the main growth factors for the data center market in Latin America.

With the rapid growth of data center deployment, the green data center market is becoming a major trend in data center development and operation.


Innovations in power and cooling technologies are driving the green development market

Innovations in data center power technology include the adoption of lithium-ion UPS and smart grid systems and the adoption of DRUPS systems in Latin America.

Fuel cell-based backup power is also expected to enter the Latin American market in the long term, driving down investment in inefficient diesel generators and boosting the market for efficient products. A tropical testbed is currently being tested in Singapore, making data centers more efficient in a tropical climate.

If successful, it can also have a positive impact on the Latin American market and further reduce the PUE of facilities. Free cooling is also being adopted by data center operators in facilities in countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and the Caribbean, at least partially. For example, Equinix uses free cooling in its SP3 data center in Sao Paulo.

Government push towards sustainability

Various governments in Latin America, including those of Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay, are actively working to increase the adoption of renewable energy in the country. The Latin American Development Bank has approved a $300 million loan to Uruguay to strengthen and modernize its electricity network, under the impetus of the government.

Deployment of Modular Data Centers and Sustainable Hardware growing

The operating cost of a modular data center is approximately 30% lower than that of a traditional data center, making it an attractive proposition in Latin America and driving the growth of the modular data center market in Latin America, due to the fact that many operators have limited funds. for data center development.

The environmental impact of modular data center deployment is also lower as it involves little or no use of concrete can be built in a phased manner and eliminates the need for additional manpower.

Data center operators are also adopting plant-based materials and other sustainable materials such as wood, hemp, and mycelium, which can revolutionize the process of building data centers.


Among Latin American countries, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Paraguay are among the countries that have actively adopted renewable energy for most of their energy needs.

Countries like Mexico are also expected to accelerate their adoption of renewable energy in the coming years, especially thanks to global and regional policies promoting the use of renewable energy. In Mexico, just over 30% of the energy mix is ​​renewable.

In Argentina, around 26 large-scale renewable energy projects were commissioned in 2021, adding more than 1 GW of renewable energy. Energy capacity increased by approximately 24% in 2021 compared to 2020.


Large colocation and large-scale data center operators are driving the market

Hyperscale operators like Google and Microsoft are actively promoting renewable energy adoption in Latin America. For example, in December 2021, Google launched its cloud region in Santiago, powered by solar energy from ACCIONA Energia’s El Romero photovoltaic power plant.

Colocation operators such as ODATA and Scala Data Centers are actively embracing renewable energy in Latin America. For example, Scala Data Centers signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with ENGIE Brasil Energia in 2021 to supply more than 1,600 GWh of renewable energy to the operator until 2033.

Some of the main producers and suppliers of renewable energy in the Latin American market include Enel Green Power, Engie, GreenYellow and The AES Corporation.


Policy drivers and regulations such as the Paris Agreement, RE100, and certifications such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and ISO50001 are driving the market for green data center market development in Latin America.

Among the main contributors to the development of ecological data centers in Latin America are Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Paraguay, among others. Data center operators and governments are scrambling to adopt renewable energy and other measures.

Hyperscale operators in Latin America, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and Huawei Technologies, are leading the market in terms of sustainable investment and innovative technologies.
