Investment Market

  • Investment demand weakened in 2022 owing to the rapid increase in financing costs and growing fears of a recession. Asia Pacific direct data centre investment turnover fell to US$1.4 billion, the lowest annual total since 2019.
  • CBRE has observed signs of improvement in the data centre investment market in recent months, with nearly US$1.7 billion of new data centre funds raised in Q1 2023.
  • Investment demand will be focusing on greenfield development of prime assets, such as data centres with higher floor loading and/or sustainability certification.
