China Datacenter Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

The Asia-Pacific region is leading the global datacenter industry with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (“CAGR”) of 12% and is expected to reach US$28 billion in 2021, becoming the world’s largest datacenter market. At the top of this wave is the two largest economies of China and Southeast Asia.

In China, the industry is developing rapidly, owning the second-largest number of datacenters in the world, after the United States, with an annual growth rate of more than 20% both in terms of quantity and scale. At an industry level, 5G, IoT, the industrial Internet and digital transformation abounds with waves of good news, propelled by the “new infrastructure” policy. From 2021 to 2022, China’s datacenter industry will usher in an outbreak period of landing and production.

In the Southeast Asia (“SEA”), market growth is expected to hit CAGR of 13% from 2019 to 2024. Amongst SEA, Singapore ranks third in the global datacentre market of 38 countries and is the only mature market. Vietnam, on the other hand, recently announced its 2025 National Digital Transformation Plan and 2030 Development Direction, whereas Malaysia has developed a “dual-core” datacenter deployment plan. Meanwhile, the Thailand government is strengthening domestic communication and network infrastructure to support the construction of hyper-large datacenters.

Such rapid growth and expansion of the Asian datacenter industry has increased competition amongst new entrants. However, whilst many will be enticed by the huge market potential and opportunities, whether it is the Chinese companies expanding to SEA or others looking to enter the Chinese market, they are set to face steep challenges in the various countries. To name a few; geographic landscape, imperfect infrastructure, policy constraints, business culture differences, and geopolitical instability all pose significant risks. 

Hence, W.Media is convening datacenter experts to offer an insider peek into the world’s two fastest-growing markets. Join us as we hear from industry leaders on the current situation, opportunities and challenges of the China and SEA market, and what you can expect in 2021 and beyond.

It will be an insightful dual-language event (English/Chinese), where you can gather cutting-edge industry information and in-depth market understanding from our experts.

Hong Kong Datacenters: Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

Datacenters serve as a pillar of Hong Kong’s industries–ensuring the operation and growth of the city’s finance and logistics services. Indeed, the digital transformation enabled by these centers is forecasted to add US$9 billion to Hong Kong’s GDP in the next three years–a year on year increase of 0.5%. So while Hong Kong is actually below the global and APAC average for automated processes deployed in the workplace, these figures are a sign of change to come.

In fact, Hong Kong has been quicker to adapt to new technologies now that 89% of the workforce is subject to flexible working arrangements in lockdown. The 5G, AI, Cloud, and IoT industries contributed only 5% to Hong Kong’s GDP in 2019 but are expected to grow an astonishing 60% by next year. This rapid proliferation of data-driven tech is only going to increase the demand on local data centers.

One of the big challenges facing Hong Kong will be retrofitting it’s legacy datacenters to accommodate these new requirements. How can sustainable technology be deployed effectively on the hyperscale, co-location and even edge network level? Even cloud native companies are being forced to reconsider their current systems in order to reduce limitations on their technology and strengthen their overall security.

Data is being generated and transmitted at a higher rate than ever, so where and how this data is stored bears huge implications on Hong Kong’s economic health and resilience.

W.Media is convening all of Hong Kong’s experts on data center management, sustainability and security to give you an inside look into one of the world’s most unique markets. Hear from industry leaders themselves on what other APAC markets can learn from HK’s data centers, and what you can expect in 2021 and beyond.

Japan Datacenters: Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

With a sustained CAGR of 3.7% between now and 2025, Japan’s Data Center Market is poised to reshape the nation’s entire economy. Increased speculation from foreign companies and accelerated adoption of digital technologies across public and private sectors are the underlying driving factors to this rapid evolution.

This data gold rush is taking place mainly around the Tokyo metropolitan area, with Osaka close behind. Local systems integrators like Fujitsu, Hitachi and Mitsubishi have been integral in making ICT the largest industry in the Japanese economy, and now global players like Equinix are moving into Japan’s data center sphere to meet the correlating surge in demand for cloud services. 

The Japanese government signed a deal with AWS to migrate all HR systems to the cloud by 2025, a sign of the cross-industry embrace of cloud technologies currently transforming the country.  But while the data center market is experiencing this unprecedented investment, there is simultaneously a growing call for such investment to be sustainable. Japanese Data Centers are pioneering renewable energy and energy-efficient power and cooling solutions 

The growth of IoT and remote work is driving the cloud services market to an incredible 15% CAGR, but in order to properly capitalise on this explosion of data it’s important to scrutanise where the data is being held: the data centers themselves.

Our second show in our “Japan Market Insights Series”, this event will focus on the Japanese data center market: its business prospects, technological breakthroughs, and future trends to be aware of.

日本のデータセンター市場は、現在から2025年の間に持続的に3.7%のCAGRを達成し、日本の経済全体を再形成する構えです。こうした急速な進化の背景には、増加している外資系企業の数及びデジタル技術の官民に普及の加速があります。

このデータゴールドラッシュは、主に首都圏周辺及び大阪中心の関西の地域で行われており、富士通、日立、三菱電気などの国内システム統合会社は、日本国内の経済を最大の成長する役割をしてあり、エクイニクスのようなグローバル企業も日本のデータセンター市場に進出してクラウドサービスの需要の相互増加に対応しています。

日本政府はAWSと共に2025年までにすべてのHRシステムをクラウドに移転する契約を締結しましたが、これは現在日本を変化させているクラウド技術の産業間の包容のシグナルと判断するのができます。 しかし、データセンター市場が前例がない投資を経験している中、投資が持続可能であるべきだというニーズが同時に増えています。 日本データセンターは再生可能エネルギー及び冷却ソリューションを積極的にリードしています。

IoTと遠隔作業の成長はクラウドサービス市場を驚くべき数値である15%CAGRに導いていますが、このような爆発的なデータを適切に活用するためには、データが保管される空間、すなわち、データセンター自体を具体化することが重要であります。

日本市場における今後の展望」の2回目であるこのイベントは、日本のデータセンター市場、すなわち、ビジネスの展望、技術革新及び今後の動向に焦点を合わせて進行する予定です。

W.Mediaはこの全てのテーマについて、より一層の情報を得るため全ての専門家をここに集めました。 皆さんが日本市場への新たな参入を考える専門家、または現在の立場を広げようとする専門家であれば、急速に発展するデニターセンター産業に対する新たな洞察力を提供する意義深いイベントになると思います。

Digital Economy in Vietnam: Dragon Unleashed

Event Summary

Vietnam is the fastest-growing digital economy in Asia Pacific at a rate of 38% per year. The country is making efforts to push up digital transformation as a key strategy to boost the national economy. As a result, its digital sector is expected to contribute 30% to Vietnam’s economy by 2030. 

Vietnam’s digital economy in 2019 was valued at $12 billion, making up 5% of the nation’s GDP, or four times higher than 2015. The figure is predicted to reach $43 billion by 2025, with the fields of e-commerce, e-tourism, e-communication and e-hailing leading the way. Will Vietnam’s economy speed up to rank 1st in Southeast Asia?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnam Government has applied policy and regulation encouraging enterprises to apply technologies in their workplace, especially with sectors that are thought to be slow to adopt digitalisation like public services, hospitals and healthcare, schools and education organisations. 

Many technologies and cloud players are also giving away free usage for enterprises to start educating them on how to improve their remote processes and create brand awareness through digital transformation. But this raises the question if Vietnam currently has a strong digital infrastructure enough to power the increasing demand and speed up digital transformation.

Cybersecurity is also a vital role that the Vietnamese Government cannot neglect. An alliance of Vietnamese enterprises, supported by Vietnam Ministry of Communication, called CoMeet was recently established with the purpose of providing tailor-made solutions for online meetings replacing Zoom. How could these initiatives speed up digital transformation?

These advancements are an extremely good sign for the Vietnam market, providing the local players are capable enough to survive on their own and compete against the international brands. 

How can Government and businesses drive this digital evolution? What are the challenges and how can we overcome these? Will the Vietnam dragons be unleashed after this pandemic?

Join us at the Digital Economy in Vietnam: Dragon Unleashed on to explore how Vietnam’s digital economy is rising up and find out how your business can soar in the digital age.

Taiwan Cloud & Datacenter Market Insights

Event Summary

The explosive momentum that the Taiwanese cloud market saw up in 2020 is expected to continue well into 2021, spurred on by the digitalisation demands of COVID-19. 

Taipei has emerged as the epicenter of this rapid digital expansion–implementing plans to construct  a 5G network and additional data centers within city limits. But the nation is also looking elsewhere, pursuing both domestic and international investments to maintain their competitiveness in the region. Google, for instance, recently selected the central city of Douliu as the site to begin construction of their third data center in Taiwan.

But while some of Asia’s emerging economies like Indonesia and Thailand are making great strides in the cloud market, corporations still prefer mature economies that can provide them with a strong power network and more reliable uptime. Because multiple deep-sea cables between the USA and Asia pass through Taiwan, the island also provides a geographic advantage to the American tech giants. Recent multinational agreements with western nations have cemented Taiwan as an essential partner in the rollout of 5G networks in the APAC region. 

On the state level, Taiwan is investing in bolstering five IT sectors: technology and digital, national defense, green energy, renewable energy, and biotech. Specifically, this involves such initiatives as recruiting 80 cyber security officials to establish a national team or creating another “Asian Silicon Valley” comparable to Hsinchu Science Park. 

How will these state-level actions impact the private sector? Digitalisation in Taiwan has the potential to impact all aspects of life, from healthcare to city planning. This event will focus on the most compelling trends in the cloud computing and data center industries in Taiwan. Tune in to find out more!

在COVID-19抗疫期間數位化需求的推動下,台灣雲市場在2020年出現的爆炸性增長勢頭預計將持續到2021年。

 台北已經成為這種快速數位化擴張的中心–實施了在市區範圍內建設完整的5G網絡和添加額外數據中心的計劃。此外,政府也將目光投向外界,尋求國內外投資,以保持其在該地區的競爭力。其中,近期谷歌選擇了斗六市作為他們在台灣的第三個數據中心的選址。

 雖然亞洲一些新興市場,如印尼和泰國等在雲端市場上有了驚人的進展,但普遍企業還是傾向於能夠提供更穩定及可靠的電力網絡和正常運行時間的成熟經濟體與國家。由於美國和亞洲之間有多條深海電纜經過台灣,該島也為美國科技巨頭提供了眾多的地理優勢。近期,台灣與多個西方國家所簽訂的跨國協議,更是彰顯了台灣是在5G網絡正盛行的亞太地區裏的一個重要合作夥伴。

 在國家層面上,台灣正在投資五個IT領域:技術和數位化、國防、綠能、可再生能源和生物科技。具體來說,這涉及到招募80名網絡安全人員成立國家團隊,和打造另一個可與新竹科學園區相媲美的 “亞洲矽谷 “等舉措。

 這些行動將如何影響私人企業?台灣的數位化也將會影響人民的生活方式,從醫療到城市規劃多方面等。本次活動將聚焦台灣雲計算和數據中心行業最引人注目的趨勢。即刻 登入與了解更多吧!
