The Data Center Generator Market in Latin America is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.18% during 2022-2027
- The computing power in data centers in Latin America is growing due to an increase in the demand for cloud services, big data, and IoT, which has led to an increase in rack power density. The increase in data bandwidth and high-performance computing will drive operators to procure generator sets to manage any downtime in data centers.
- The adoption of diesel generator sets is high in Latin America, with major data center operators adopting these generator sets. For instance, Equinix has adopted two diesel generator sets of N+1 redundancy and a power capacity of 1.9 MW at its MX2 data center
- DRUPS systems have gained traction in the market and are being adopted by operators such as Ascenty (Digital Realty), which has adopted a DRUPS system at its Rio De Janeiro data center facility.
- The Latin American data center generator market is also expected to witness the adoption of innovative technologies in the forecast period, including hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO fuel) based, gas-powered, and fuel cell generators.
- In 2021, investments in the region in terms of system capacity were highest in 1.5-3 MW generators, followed by those with a capacity up to 1.5 MW.
- The growth in the development of larger data center facilities and expected growth in cloud service provider investments in the region will raise investments in generators of a capacity over 3 MW. Also, the growth in the deployment of modular data centers will aid investments in generators with a capacity of around 1 MW.
- In 2021, Brazil led the investments in the procurement of data center generators, followed by other Latin American countries such as Colombia, Argentina, Peru, and others.
