UK Data Centre Market forecast to reach 3.5GW by 2028

The UK data centre market is experiencing a boom in infrastructure investment with the build and the launch of new facilities. This new report features details of more than 270 facilities and projects located across 70 cities.

Merger and acquisition activity has been brisk in the past 3 years, and the report identifies details of 28 deals concluded.

The report also records more than new build projects in progress or planned, with expansion plans announced by nearly all of the larger UK players.

Approximately half of all current and planned facilities remain in London, with significant investments in the west and east of the city capital.

Although increased investment has been recorded in Manchester, the closest to an emerging hub, and the surrounding area, with existing facilities and new build, it still represents only 2.8% of total power on the basis of current plans. Wales is close to this figure but Scotland and Northern Ireland record very low numbers in digital infrastructure and power resources. The report reveals plans for roll out of infrastructure over the next two years but suggests that by 2028 the UK data centres market will more than double in MW power reaching around 3.5GW.

However these values are likely to change again once the scale of power investment is known for hyperscale projects particularly Google and Microsoft.

The Mega projects still undergoing planning permission include Reef Group (Havering) with a 600MW plan and the Humber Technology Park (384MW) could change the landscape further.

With ~60% of built facilities at 4MW and below, there is significant scope to build Edge networks across the country.

Overall the UK market appears to remain resilient in development among its European neighbours.

This new report details and explains the substantial growth forecast for revenues and power which will more than double current MW availability by the end of 2026 across Germany’s top 6 cities. Berlin is now attracting the majority of the extensive investment programme in progress across one of Europe’s largest data centre markets. Frankfurt itself remains the pre-eminent market and will evidence 1.7GW capacity by the end of the forecast period.
