The customized accounts for the significant market share of XX% in 2019 due to the increase in the number of companies providing customized containerized data centers as per the requirement of the customers. Several customized containerized data centers comprised different specifications of the containers including the 10 Feet, 53 Feet, and custom containers. The customized containerized data centers in containers provide the additional benefits of standardization and cost certainty. The customized data center features include modular designs with multiple connecting containers, permanent installations, temporary installations, quick connections for power and cooling, infrastructure management, and other features. The market is dominated by the availability of several customized containerized data centers. For instance, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd provides the customized solution of the Huawei IDS1000-C solution with the 3 typical configurations and supports a flexible combination of different modules to meet customers' diverse requirements.
Further, the market is also classified based on the industry verticals as the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), telecom and IT, government and public, defense, energy, healthcare, education, and others. The telecom and IT accounts for a significant market share of XX% in 2019 as the containerized data centers are the ideal solution for the telecom and IT industry where the high performance of servers, switches, and other computing and communications platforms is required. There is growing penetration of the containerized data centers in the telecom and IT industry as these data centers have the ability to fulfil the goal of standardization of mass production and rapid deployment. It is easy to move the containerized data centers from the private to public clouds and back. The containerized data centers allow the applications to be available when and where users and information technology need them. The containerized data centers allow the interconnections to be made between different colocation services and telecom carriers. It is easy to exchange the data in the telecom and IT industry through the use of containerized data centers.
By region, the global containerized data center market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, North America dominated the global containerized data center market and expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period due to the presence of a large number of the containerized data centers.
