Spending To Bounce Back In 2020

The decline in worldwide spending on data center systems in 2019 is not expected to continue in 2020. Data center spending is projected to increase to $207 billion in 2020, an increase of 1.7 percent compared to 2019.

“Cloud isn’t always the answer. On-premise won’t always be the answer. Edge is going to be part of the answer,” said Lovelock. “Edge is the new signal in there that’s changing the balance. Modular data centers will certainly be part of that new equilibrium as well. Colocation isn’t going away, in fact, it’s growing.”

Overall, global IT spending is expected to grow from $3.79 trillion in 2019 to $3.93 trillion by 2020, representing a 3.6 percent increase.
