DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “United Arab Emirates Data Center Market – Investment Analysis & Growth Opportunities 2024-2029” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The UAE data center market was valued at USD 1.50 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach a value of $2.65 billion in 2029, growing at a CAGR of 9.95% from 2023-2029.

This report analyses the UAE data center market share. It elaboratively analyses the existing and upcoming facilities and investments in IT, electrical, mechanical infrastructure, general construction, and tier standards. It discusses market sizing and investment estimation for different segments.

The UAE has about 31 operational colocation data centers. Most colocation data centers are being developed according to Tier III standards. For instance, Khazna Data Centers’ DXB8 facility is built to Uptime Tier III standards. Khazna Data Centers is among the top and largest data center operators in the UAE data center market. They are the first in the region to adopt biofuel and do a test run for their facilities’ generators.

Equinix is among the global colocation operators in the country that currently has its own DX1 and DX3 facilities in Dubai and has collocated two other facilities, DX2 in Dubai and AD1 in Abu Dhabi in Khazna Data Centers. The UAE data center industry is also witnessing significant improvements in submarine and inland connectivity. For example, the FLAG Europe-Asia (FEA) is the biggest one spread across almost 17,400 miles, with Global Cloud Xchange as its owner, and has landing points in several regions in China, Egypt, Italy, Saudi Arabia, India, the UK, and other countries.

Some of the key colocation investors in the UAE data center market in 2023 are Gulf Data Hub, Khazna Data Centers, Moro Hub, Equinix, and others. In February 2023, Moro Hob, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) subsidiary, announced the launch of the world’s largest solar-powered data center in Dubai in the UAE. Khazna Data Centers has merged with Etisalat and G42 to become one of the largest colocation operators in the country.

The Gulf Data Hub is also among the major operators in the UAE data center market. The company is currently developing several new data center facilities and has planned additional data centers across Dubai and Abu Dhabi. EDGNEX Data Centres by DAMAC and Quantum Switch Tamasuk are two of the new entrants in the UAE data center market that have planned to develop several new facilities across the country. Significant deployment and adoption of 5G services, along with the development of smart cities across the UAE, has been fuelling data traffic and bolstering the growth of the UAE data center market.
