The growing interest in colocation services is due to the emerging demand for cloud services. This forces providers to build their relationships with customers, relying on a long-term perspective.

Recognized leaders in the global market for colocation services are Equinix and Digital Realty. Equinix's total share of wholesale and retail sales of rental services is 8.1% of the global market. Digital Realty relies in its business primarily on wholesale sales, its share is now 5.6%. At the same time, it is the largest player in terms of the size of the available space in the data centers - 7.8% of the world market.

Colocation rent is becoming an intermediate step through which IT is developing in companies; on the one hand it's own data center of the enterprise, on the other - cloud service. The largest region to date in terms of the amount allocated for colocation services is the Asia-Pacific region - 40.1%. The leadership of this region is connected with the scale of its economy and with the state support rendered in some Asian countries to the construction of innovative territorial zones with a preferential taxation system.
