Executive Summary

Four New Data Center Projects to Add over 20MW Power Capacity in Singapore

Singapore data center market is one of the most mature markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The country is also among the fastest-growing center for analytics innovations, contributing around 45% of the revenues in 2019. Hyperscale and colocation service providers are looking forward to constructing data centers in the region in the upcoming years.

For instance, the Facebook data center will be built as an 11-storey facility, covering an area of about 1.8 million square feet on full build.

Furthermore, investments by companies such as by AirTrunk, Digital Reality, ST Telemedia, and Kepple is likely to contribute to the incremental growth and revenues in the data center market in Singapore till 2025.

What is the Impact of the Current COVID-19 Pandemic in the Singapore Market?

The spread of COVID-19 has put a halt on various data center construction projects in Singapore. Analysts at Arizton expect that the pandemic will have a moderate impact on upcoming projects scheduled to be opened in Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. However, the spread of COVID-19 has significantly increased data traffic from March 2020.

Though there was a partial lockdown declaration in the country, the data center employees were exempted from it as data center in Singapore was declared as essential services. Therefore, the COVID-19 impact on data center operations is expected to be low in Singapore.

What is the Impact of the Data Center Development on the Singapore Economy?

An increase in data center development across Southeast Asia is improving submarine connectivity to Singapore. NTT was involved in the development of the undersea cable unit in Singapore to meet data traffic demand across Southeast Asia. This further strengthens the connectivity in the country and is likely to attract more investment in the data center market in Singapore.
