DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Data Center Market in Middle East – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Middle East data center market by investment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% during the period 2020-2026.

The data center market has observed a steady growth due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in heightened access to internet-related services aided by nationwide lockdowns and restrictions. IoT-enabled devices witnessed high acceptance for monitoring and surveillance purposes, especially in the healthcare sector, during the pandemic.

Government agencies have also contributed to the growth of cloud-based services in the Middle East. In Kuwait, the Ministry of Health (MoH), the Central Agency for Information Technology (CAIT), collaborated with Zain to launch an application – Shlonik to monitor citizens that have returned to the country.

The growing adoption of cloud, IoT, big data in the wake of the COVID-19 has increased colocation investments in the region. Cloud, social media, and video conferencing service providers have contributed majorly to data generation. Many enterprises operating in the cloud are migrating to colocation data centers to operate hybrid infrastructure services.


Turkey, UAE, and Saudi Arabia are the three largest contributors to the Middle East data center market share. The rising adoption of cloud-based services leads to the growth of retail and wholesale colocation services in the UAE.

The market is witnessing an increase in the demand for colocation spaces across existing and upcoming data centers. The rapid investment in 5G technology and its deployment is increasing investments in data centers.

Dubai is one of the most preferred locations for data centers in the UAE, followed by Abu Dhabi. Similarly, Saudi Arabia is observing rapid digitalization and automation of business activities.

In 2020, over 75% of companies implemented IoT in their applications. The internet penetration in Saudi Arabia was around 95% in 2020. Enterprises across various industries such as banking, financial services, insurance, IT & telecommunications, energy & utilities, media & entertainment, and manufacturing have adopted cloud services, thereby driving the market.


Arista Network, AWS, Atos, Broadcom, Cisco Systems, and Dell Technologies are among the major IT vendors expanding their presence in the Middle East region.

They have a strong physical presence in the region and are the major adopters of high-density, mission-critical servers, storage infrastructure, and network infrastructure. Vendors are focusing on sustainable data centers.

They procure renewable energy sources in partnership with local service providers. Construction and design are critical for data center operators because they need to adhere to the Uptime standards.
