London, 30 April 2021 – Committed investment in the data center infrastructure sector reached an estimated USD20.3 billion in the past month. Committed investment so far this year is averaging more than USD10 billion per month.

The most significant singular investment in dollar terms at USD 4.2 billion is the Pioneer Point Partners/Davidson Kempner scheme announced for a large-scale data center in Portugal by 2025 and first mover on a strategically important site for transatlantic cables such as Ellalink, which connects Europe to South America. 

London, 1 April 2021 – First quarter committed investment for data centers globally has exceeded market expectations and witnessed a series of new fund launches, M&A, new builds, JVs, land acquisition and data center expansion on a scale not seen so far. At the end of the first quarter investment has reached an estimated USD38 billion which already surpasses the total for 2020 according to research by Headwind Consultants. The projection still excludes private deals being made off market.
