Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Green Data Center Market size is predicted to reach USD 805 billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 20% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of the green data center was over USD 70 billion. The requirement for green data centers is primarily being driven by the increase in demand for storage space and data storage. Huawei predicts that during the slated period, the demand for data centers will rise three to ten times globally.

Due to new construction brought about by regulations and the predicted rise in the need to reduce operational expenditure, along with the positive outlook for data center storage needs and the need to reduce energy consumption. green data centers offer practical and environmentally friendly options in terms of data storage and decrease in energy consumption should see high demand.

Green data centers use cutting-edge technologies including power management tools, sophisticated cooling systems, and virtualization to prioritize energy economy. These centers lower operating expenses considerably by reducing energy use, which attracts enterprises financially.

Green data centers are also using more and more renewable energy sources to harness the power of nature. By utilizing renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydroelectric power plants, we can lessen our need for fossil fuels and reduce our carbon footprint.

Green Data Center Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • High demand for renewable energy - Companies are prioritizing sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in their business strategies, resulting in increased demand for renewable energy. Businesses can maintain compliance with these sustainability criteria by implementing green data centers, which will help their entire reputation.

    Additionally, to reduce their reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels, green data centers frequently use renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydroelectric electricity. Data center operators profit greatly from energy-efficient technology, and businesses can save total operational costs by reducing energy consumption.
  • Rise in advanced technologies - Advances in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) have increased global data center power demand. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that data centers utilize 460 TWh in 2022, which is expected to rise to more than 1,000 TWh by 2026 in the worst-case scenario.

    As a result, the industry could be influenced by a high emphasis on energy efficiency, consequently boosting the growth of green data center market.


  • High upfront costs - Green data centers demand a considerable initial investment because they often use more expensive technologies and materials than standard data centers. This can be a hindrance to certain businesses, particularly those with minimal resources.

    It is assessed that the high initial costs associated with developing and building green data centers will stymie the sector growth. Such energy-efficient data center development necessitates the use of cutting-edge technologies and environmentally friendly construction techniques. Furthermore, the process of converting an existing conventional data center to a green one is costly and complex.
  • Lack of awareness is anticipated to hinder market growth in the coming years.
  • Lack of standardization is estimated to impede landscape growth over the forecast period.
