A press statement by this strategic market intelligence firm said that trailing behind the United States were Japan (9%), the United Kingdom (7%), and China (6%).
It said growth in the global market for collocation services remains robust in most countries, in spite the trends towards a shift to the cloud.

The press statement made no mention of specific monetary figures for sales in these countries, but said there are now 20 countries that each generates US $100 million in retail collocation revenues yearly.
