Top 10 colocation providers in Asia

Leading colocation providers across Asia include the likes of BDx, Princeton Digital Group, STACK Infrastructure and Equinix

The data centre colocation market in APAC is expected to grow from US$15.5 million in 2021 to US$47.9m by 2028 at an estimated CAGR of 17.5% across the same time frame thanks to substantial growth in the e-commerce and  IT and telecom industries. This is down to the increasing population and rising penetration of the internet which, as a result, has boosted the construction of data centre colocation facilities.
