The Southeast Asia data center construction market is one of the fastest-developing markets globally, driven by the increase in cloud adoption, the advent of 5G services, and the adoption of AI, Big data, and IoT technology. Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand have robust connectivity and are among the most connected countries in Southeast Asia. Singapore is the gateway and an integral interconnection point to several APAC countries, including Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, and Pakistan. The adoption of cloud-based services will likely be a significant driver of the data center market over the next few years.

Moreover, Singapore boasts the largest existing capacity in the region, and countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines are outpacing it in terms of new investments, collectively capturing over 50% of the market share for new investments. This trend can be attributed to several factors, including lower energy costs, increased renewable energy sources, and inexpensive labor and land availability. These factors are influencing companies’ decisions to invest in these emerging markets.

Watch Out for How Advancing in Adoption of AI Boosting the Market Growth   

In June 2023, Run ai, a company that manages computing resources for AI tasks, announced a strategic partnership with AI Singapore. AI Singapore, a national R&D initiative led by the National Research Foundation, Singapore, aims to establish strong AI capabilities in the country. This collaboration aims to provide scalable infrastructure solutions for various AI projects and assist AI Singapore in its mission to expedite AI adoption across industries.

AI Singapore, as the country’s AI initiative, holds a pivotal position in aiding organizations in adopting AI solutions. It has made significant strides through its notable 100 Experiments Programme (100E) and the acclaimed AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP). Collaborating with over 60 companies, they’ve trained over 200 Singaporean AI engineers to create, assess, and implement numerous AI models that tackle real-world challenges.

While AI investments primarily focus on Singapore, nine out of the top 10 deals involved start-ups based in Singapore that cater to various businesses and use cases throughout the region. For instance, Biofourmis, a health analytics platform analyzing physiological data from clinical-grade wearables, operates in both Singapore and Indonesia. Similarly, Tookitaki, a sophisticated decision-support system for compliance programs in the financial services sector, extends its operations across the six major Southeast Asian countries.

The Southeast Asia Colocation Data Center Market by Investment to Reach $4 Billion by 2029  

In Southeast Asia, colocation investments in Singapore declined significantly over the last few years owing to the lack of space for new builds. This has led to the spill over demand toward Indonesia and Malaysia. The upcoming capacity of under-construction announced and planned data center campuses across these two countries will overtake Singapore’s existing colocation capacity. In the same year, BDx Indonesia, Chindata Group, EdgeConneX, Equinix, Keppel Data Centres, GDS Services, Princeton Digital Group, and others invested in developing colocation data center facilities in the region.

Investment Surge in Southeast Asia’s Data Center Market Driven by Digitalization and Affordable Land 

In Southeast Asia, the average cost of land varies significantly, ranging from $10 to $25 per square foot. Among these, Malaysia and Vietnam are particularly notable for their affordability, followed by countries like Indonesia, Thailand, and others. On the other hand, Singapore stands out as the most expensive location for land acquisition. Despite this cost disparity, countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines are experiencing substantial digital growth. This growth is characterized by booming e-commerce, government-led digitalization initiatives, and the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI).

The region’s emphasis on digital infrastructure is evident in the presence of approximately 140 submarine cables and the ongoing development of over 41 new ones. These developments underscore the importance of AI, digitization, and the increasing volume of data stored in Southeast Asia. This trend is expected to significantly boost investments in the data center construction market across the region.

Major cities like Batam, Bekasi, Jakarta, Johor, West Java, Cyberjaya, Manila, Chon Buri, Ho Chi Minh City, and Bangkok collectively account for over 60% of the total data center capacity in Southeast Asia. However, other cities are gradually closing this gap. Factors such as favorable regulatory policies, the formation of data center clusters, and incentives like low-cost labor and affordable land prices are expected to attract increased investments in data centers across these emerging cities.

Overall, the dynamic interplay of affordable land, digital transformation, and strategic investments is propelling Southeast Asia’s data center market towards robust growth. As digital activities expand and infrastructure develops, the region is set to become a significant hub for data storage and processing in the foreseeable future.
