Bengaluru, July 11: Fueled by Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, the data centre market in south India is projected to grow 65 per cent by 2030, a report showed on Thursday.

This surge is supported by substantial government incentives, strategic infrastructure investments and a rising demand for digital services, according to the report by Colliers India.

The combined installed data centre capacity in Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad stands at nearly 200 MW.

"This foundation is set to be significantly bolstered, with 190 MW currently under construction and an additional 170 MW planned," according to the report.

These developments are expected to increase the total capacity by 80 per cent over the next few years, underscoring the region's strategic importance in supporting global digital infrastructure.

"With sustained government support and continuous infrastructure development, South India is set to become a global data centre hub," said Swapnil Anil, Executive Director & Head of Advisory Services, Colliers India.
