|“The continued growth of e-commerce and the surge in interest in AI-led platforms such as ChatGPT means that demand for Data centre space continues unabated all across Asia Pacific. 1H 2023 has seen the completion and announcement of several mega-projects in major markets but with supply and regulatory constraints varying considerably from market to market and competition from heavy-power users in the Advanced Manufacturing and EV sectors, challenges remain in meeting growth targets from a supply perspective.”
|“The repurposing of older assets seems like an easy solution; however, challenges remain in terms of power, floor loading etc especially for Hyperscalers and hence a ground-up approach is recommended for large projects. Investors and Developers must take a long-term view on the this asset class due to the long construction times and bespoke nature of the facilities. Another concern for both operators and investors is ESG compliance – again more challenging if considering a conversion of an existing asset Vs a new-build.”
