Executive Summary

Seven New Data Center Projects to Add More than 40 Thousand Square Feet Area in the Netherlands

Fiber connectivity, availability of renewable energy, free cooling, and district heating have made the Netherlands a favorable location for data center development. The cloud spending in the Netherlands increased by 10%, generating a revenue of $2.5 billion in 2019. The Netherlands ranks first in connectivity according to the EU’s Digital Economy and Society Index.

Amsterdam (AMS-IX) is among the largest internet exchange points in the world, with over 800 networks connected through AMS-IX. Amsterdam hosts over 60% of the data center market in Netherland. Analysts at Arizton expect that the data center market in Netherland will witness multiple new entrants involved in the procurement of land parcels for data center development over the course of the next five years. Equinix, Interxion, DataCenter.com, Alticom, Bytesnet, and Google are some of the prominent investors in the Netherlands data center market.

What is the Impact of the Current COVID-19 Pandemic on the Netherland Market?

In the Netherlands, the impact of COVID-19 is moderate. Non-essential construction projects have been brought to a halt to avoid the spread of the virus. Construction work continues in the Netherlands by following guidelines imposed by the government towards construction sectors. However, COVID-19 will have a higher impact on upcoming projects scheduled to open in Q4 2020 & 2021.

What are the Key Factors Attracting Investment in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands contributed to 18% of the overall investment in Europe, followed by Germany. Owing to BREXIT, Netherlands investment will grow as enterprises migrate their applications from the UK to Netherland. The data center market in Netherland is likely to witness an increase in land cost and power pricing by 2025. Colocation providers in the Netherlands added around 200 MW of power capacity between 2017 and 2020. The acquisition of Interxion by Digital Realty in 2020 is likely to strengthen the growth of retail and wholesale colocation investments into the data center market in Netherlands.
