Middle East Data Center Construction Market Analysis

The Middle East data center construction market is projected to register a CAGR of 14.74%.

  • The upcoming IT load capacity of the Middle East data center construction market is expected to reach 2,059.5 MW by 2029.
  • The region's construction of raised floor area is expected to increase 9.7 million sq. ft by 2029.
  • The region's total number of racks to be installed is expected to reach 496,769 units by 2029. Saudi Arabia is expected to house the maximum number of racks by 2029.
  • There are close to 13 submarine cable systems connecting the Middle East, and many are under construction. One such submarine cable that is estimated to start service in 2024 is Blue, which stretches over 4696 Kilometers with a landing point in Tel Aviv.

Middle East Data Center Construction Market Trends

End-User Outlook

  • The most significant market shares among end-user industries are projected to come from the cloud, telecom, e-commerce, and BFSI end users. As a result, the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector, one of the key pillars of the region's economy, increased projects focusing on Industry 4.0.
  • The region is witnessing several digital transformations, advancing the cloud industry. These initiatives, as well as similar others, are being carried out by the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Rest of the Middle East.
  • In Qatar, 60 new factories started operating in 2021, and the industrial sector generated over USD 15 billion in GDP during that year. The Qatar National Manufacturing Strategy focuses on developing advanced manufacturing value chains that utilize cutting-edge technologies to increase manufacturing and production, including robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, 3D printing, and the Internet of Things.
  • The telecom sector is expected to continue to rule due to the rising adoption of 5G networks. The expected 5G mobile data speed increase by 2029 is enormous, reaching 921 Mbps, thus boosting the demand for data center servers. The nation's deployment of 4G also creates a need for data centers.
  • Moreover, the number of Internet subscribers in UAE increased drastically, reaching 3,740 thousand subscribers in June 2022. The growing demand is expected to increase the demand for servers in the market.
  • The demand will likely increase during the forecast period due to the quick installation and growth of IT infrastructure. Israel was one of the eight Middle East and North Africa (MENA) nations to introduce commercial 5G by the end of March 2022. The country's telecom sector would expand due to the industry-wide demand for low latency rates. The need for data centers to provide a platform would increase as 5G gets popularity among the general public, easing the system requirements for the same.

Saudi Arabia is the largest Country

  • In the coming years, the Middle East region is expected to increase its investment in the data center market. Several factors are facilitating the expansion of data centers in the area. The region's governments' smart city ambitions are driving a shift in how modern communities are built. Cities of the future, supported by digital technologies, are expected to generate massive amounts of data. It is critical to optimize data capture, storage, and processing.
  • Domestic data growth and the emergence of 5G networks drive demand for localized data centers to speed up data transfer. Uncertain data sovereignty regulations in certain jurisdictions, including the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), drive data center investments. This emphasizes the importance of organizations such as banks retaining customer data within the country.
  • The United Arab Emirates has been a prime location for data centers in the region as one of the frontrunners in the race to establish a robust and competitive digital economy. According to Arcadis' Data Centre Location Index, the UAE's "well-established fiber broadband network" helped the country secure the top spot for mobile broadband penetration. At the same time, the ease of obtaining construction permits and new smart city initiatives make it an emerging location for data center investment.
  • Saudi Arabia launched a USD 18 billion strategy in July 2021 to establish a nationwide network of large-scale data centers. According to the Saudi Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, the first batch of investment partners includes local firms Gulf Data Hub, Al-Moammar Information Systems, and Saudi FAS Holding.
