12th January 2024 | Written by Steve Warren

In recent years, we have witnessed an unprecedented surge in the establishment and growth of data centers across the globe. By 2030, global spending on construction of data centers is expected to reach $49 billion. In the US, which represents 40% of the global market for data centers, is expected to see 10% growth every year until 2030. This remarkable trend is poised to reshape the business landscape, bringing about significant changes in market dynamics, regulatory frameworks, and creating new avenues of focus and areas of dispute for economic consulting.
