Substantial growth with data center and power density and increasing demand for cost effective data center solutions to drive the global data center cooling market to USD 14.28 billion by 2021

Data center cooling technology consists of tools, equipment, techniques, and processes that reduce the heat generated from data center hardware and maintain the temperature of data center facilities for efficient and smooth functioning. Various data center cooling methods such as air-based cooling and liquid-based cooling are used in providing cooling and ventilation and aid in maintaining the ideal operating temperature of all the devices.

Data centers have radically grown in terms of number and performance in the past few years. Moreover, data center power densities have increased to an average of up to 1.5 kW per rack causing an increase in the heat generated causing a further increase in the demand for data center cooling solutions across various industries.

In a typical data center, the cooling costs account for a considerable portion of the total energy consumption. Data center owners are, therefore, keen on addressing this cost issue by deploying economical and effective cooling solutions. Large data centers have been able to curb operational and capital cooling expenses through the use of chiller-less data centers that are dependent on the use of outside air for their cooling needs. Additionally, data center cooling solutions such as economizers utilize the outside climatic conditions for cooling data centers, which further result in reduced energy and cooling costs. These benefits provided by data center cooling solutions have fuelled their demand across SMEs and large enterprises

Growing requirement for modular data center cooling approach and Emergence of liquid cooling technologies are major opportunities in the market

The increasing volume of data has led data centers operators to opt for servers with higher density. These high density servers install benefits with High-Performance Computing (HPC), but generate heat at a faster rate resulting in greater temperature levels. Liquid cooling provides many benefits to cool high density facilities, which is why liquid cooling witnessed an increased demand from high-density data centers. Moreover, liquid cooling solutions, owing to the availability of engineered fluid coolants, are expected to have reduced upfront build costs and operating expenditures for low-density data centers in the coming years further boosting market growth.

Data center cooling modules or facility modules are pre-engineered, pre-tested, and pre-integrated data center physical infrastructure systems that operate as plug-in modules to a data center site. In addition, data center cooling modules provide for additional cost-saving by up to 30% and are 60% faster to operate. Data center facility cooling modules are increasingly finding adoption in data centers that are restricted by space and have limited budgets. Data center facility cooling modules offer benefits such as simplified planning, improved reliability, agility, faster deployment, and improved overall efficiency. Owing to these benefits, data center cooling vendors are expected to find opportunity in development and deployment of data center cooling modules to gain a competitive advantage in the data center cooling market.
