Research and Markets: Data Centre Price Trends Forecast to Continue from 2013 to 2018 with Average Pricing Forecast to Rise By 1.2 Per Cent over the Next Five-Year Period

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Data Centre Pricing in Europe 2013 to 2018" report to their offering.

Data Centre Pricing in Europe report details new growth in Data Centre raised floor space - by an average of 10,000 square metres per month - putting pressure on average price levels.

The latest edition of Data Centre Pricing in Europe - 2013 to 2018 report, forecasts that there will be mixed results for Data Centre providers over the next five year period.

Average Data Centre pricing remains stable over time, with average standard rack space rates from 2010 to 2013 being broadly unchanged over the 23 Country Markets surveyed. Over the 3 year period average rack space pricing has fallen in 13 Country Markets, but has risen in 10 Country Markets. The price trend is forecast to continue from 2013 to 2018 with average pricing forecast to rise by 1.2 per cent over the next five-year period.

A range of Data Centre clusters are now developing in each European Country Market, with the UK, the Netherlands, France and Sweden seeing development in new facilities away from the capital city - typically the main source of Data Centre investment - driven by the availability of land, planning permission and lower development costs.

Data Centre pricing in Europe is also being driven by investment in new high specification Data Centre facilities capable of delivering a range of services - with incumbent telecoms operators in Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, France & Spain investing heavily in new cloud computing and hosting facilities with multiple tiers of service, SLA and power levels.

But Data Centre providers can maintain a price premium in a market where there is a wide range of IP & network connectivity - including direct connectivity to the national IP exchange - and benefiting from a wide range of partners and digital content providers creating a unique ecosystem.
