Data Centres – Opportunities and Challenges Facing the Market in Canada

The global construction market finds itself in the midst of an international supply chain crisis and shaking off the impact of a global pandemic. Yet in the face of this adversity, data centre demand is stronger than ever, and many involved believe the sector to be recession-proof. Market growth has been exponential as the trend towards a digitally connected world was accelerated by 18 months of online working and socialising.

As the data centre market matures, the future for the industry looks resoundingly positive but is also under the spotlight for its environmental impact. This session looks at the opportunities for the market in Canada, in the face of a highly competitive global market, rising construction inflation, uncertain operating costs and continued supply chain disruptions.
