Inside Asia’s Increasing Demand for Cloud Expansion

By Marvin TanOct 11, 2023


In a recent interview with Asian Telecom, I was asked to shed light on Asia’s prominence in global cloud services. More specifically, why are data centers and cloud services expanding so rapidly in Asia?

As population density increases, there is a natural surge in data consumption, like cloud services. So it makes sense that Asia—home to 60% of the world’s population—has a growing demand for data centers.

But that's not the only catalyst here, and there are numerous advantages to having data centers clustered across Asia.

For more on this topic, check out my colleague’s Asia Cloud Data Center and Connectivity Market presentation, which maps out Asia’s current cloud data center and cloud service provider landscape.
