North America Data Center Report

Oct. 5, 2023
The first half of 2023 witnessed robust growth in the data center market; however, most major and secondary markets are struggling with a supply and demand imbalance, leading to a shortage of colocation space and rising pricing.

Looking ahead: The data center market is experiencing strong growth driven by hyperscalers, AI requirements, and the expansion of edge computing. Supply and demand imbalances have resulted in increased preleasing and extended timelines, requiring users to be in the market for capacity well in advance of their preferred go-live date.

Despite interest rate volatility, investor demand remains high and will continue to attract diverse financing to fuel growth.
