Latin America Data Center Generator Market to Reach $146 Million by 2027. Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (hvo) Shaping the Market - Arizton

·7 min read

The data center generator market in Latin America was valued at $121 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $146 million by 2027.

Chicago, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Arizton latest research report, the Latin America data center market is growing at a CAGR of 3.18% during 2022-2027. The market is expected to witness the adoption of hydrotreated vegetable oil powered generator sets as some global data center operators have started testing the use of this fuel over diesel generators. Hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) is synthesized from vegetable oils. Although it is 25% more costly than regular diesel, HVO fuel generates 90% lower emissions compared to regular diesel.

Modular data center construction is emerging as a major market trend and is a driving factor in meeting the growing demand for additional data centers in the future years. Generator vendors provide modular generator solutions that lead to easy installation and maintenance and thus reduce CAPEX and OPEX. The modular solution also includes mobile generators that can be extended depending on the demand for data center facilities. The installation of modular generator sets also helps in reducing the OPEX for data center operators, and these infrastructure solutions require less maintenance and less space for installation. Many infrastructure providers have entered partnerships to offer modular data center solutions. For instance, Generac Power Systems provides modular generator systems for data centers that provide benefits such as power, redundancy, scalability, and safety.

Key Highlights

  • The Latin America generator market is led by factors such as growing data center investments by colocation and cloud service providers, unreliability in power across many countries and resulting risk of downtime, and various innovations in generator technology.

  • Brazil led data center generator investment, accounting for over 50% of the overall market in 2021. Other major contributors included Mexico, Chile, and Columbia. Other Latin American countries, including Uruguay, Peru, and Argentina are expected to contribute to a higher share of the market in coming years.

  • Innovations in generator technology include the adoption of fuel cells, already gaining traction in Latin America, and other innovations such as hydrotreated vegetable oil powered generator sets, which are expected to enter the market over the next few years.

  • Automation and remote monitoring of generator systems has become increasingly important, with downtime due to power unreliability being the biggest reason for data center outages over the last few years. Some generator monitoring systems include Kohler’s Decision-Maker, and Caterpillar’s EMCP 4, among others.

  • Modularity in generators is also a trend that is garnering attention, as they are mostly plug-and-play and are less expensive because they are made up of standardized components. Latin America will witness a growth in generators with a capacity of <1 MW owing to modular data center deployment.

Competitive Landscape

Most suppliers are working on improving their systems by lowering carbon dioxide emissions from generators, which will be fueled by governments around Latin America enacting carbon taxes. Rolls Royce and ABB are already involved in R&D initiatives to offer fuel cell generators to data centers. It is expected that other vendors will also test the feasibility and efficiency of these systems as a pilot project across data centers in the next 1-2 years. To gain traction in the Latin America data center generator market, generator vendors are supplying systems outfitted with own engines as well as engines manufactured by other sources like as MTU, Perkins, and Mitsubishi.
