Byline check: Global data center investment outlook

Exposure content of Pro Bono Infrastructure

Deal activity in data centre infrastructure has reached unprecedented levels. The total value of data centre infrastructure transactions in 2021 more than doubled from the previous year to USD59.5 billion. The total number of data centre transactions increased by 64% in the same period, up from 69 in 2020 to 117 in 2021. And this extraordinary growth is expected to continue – in the first half of 2022 alone, we have already seen 41 transactions worth USD21.3 billion, double the USD10.6 billion total over the same period in 2021.

Our report, The Meteoric Rise of the Data Centre: Global Data Centre Investment Outlook, examines the reasons behind this surge in activity and the increasingly significant role ESG has to play when making investments.
