Forecast/Predictions for 2017
Given the success of previous quarters, the UK’s solid supply pipeline will nourish the data centre market, maintaining an equilibrium that is sure to support London’s increasing success. It can be predicted that the market will grow by a further 8% during 2017, potentially due to a resurgence in demand for data centre space from more traditional corporate sectors.
Two stand-out trends are expected to leverage London’s continued success in 2017:
1. The continued progress of major cloud service providers: The sector has never relied so much on such a small number of companies providing a large amount of the take-up of IT power. If these companies continue to progress in the UK, the London market will continue to thrive.
2. Data protection regulation: Following Brexit, replicating the EU framework will be integral when ensuring the free flow of data across borders. If hosting in the UK is not compliant with EU rules and regulations, we risks losing data centre occupiers to providers further afield.
As corporates continue to integrate cloud solutions into their overall IT architecture, the demand for cloud solutions will increase steadily for the foreseeable future. With data centre sector growth being driven so definitely, in spite of Brexit, we are sure to see London maintaining its dominance as a European data centre destination.
