This market research study presents a comprehensive analysis of the global micro-mobile data center market by rack unit (under 24U, 24U-41U, and more than 41U), by industry vertical (retail, BFSI, healthcare, and energy), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA). Leading vendors in this market are Canovate, EMS, Huawei, Panduit, Rittal, Schneider Electric, and Zellabox.

Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global micro-mobile data center market to reach revenues of $853 million by 2020. Vendors are introducing modular, containerized, and micro-mobile data center facilities to overcome challenges related to power consumption and carbon emissions. A micro-mobile data center involves a single rack enclosure equipped with power, cooling, and IT infrastructure, thus helping users minimize their infrastructure spending. The adoption of micro-mobile data centers will increase particularly in developing regions that do not have enough data center facilities to keep up with the growing Internet traffic and IoT applications. The Americas account for 42% of the overall market share, where the US is the leading contributor to the region. Much of this region’s growth comes from the need to eliminate establishing room-wide heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) and power management systems in data centers.

The new market research report from Technavio provides a breakdown and analysis of the mobile data center segments by technology.
