Data Center Cooling Market By Product Type (Air Conditioners, Chillers, Cooling Towers Economizers), By Cooling Technique (Air-Based Cooling, Liquid-Based Cooling), By Cooling Architecture (Room, Rack, Row) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2017 -2025

The rise in the number of business enterprises and their consequent need to manage their voluminous data on the cloud has led to the development of data centers across the globe. The adoption of advanced computing technologies and big data analytics for operational purposes has resulted in increased power consumption and a considerable temperature rise in data centers. High temperatures adversely affect the infrastructure and, hence, the operations of data centers. Thus, it needs to be controlled using external arrangements like data center cooling solutions, which maintain the requisite temperature for the proper functioning of the IT equipment in data centers. With increased data consumption, major cloud service providers are anticipating the need to expand their infrastructure, including their data center cooling framework, thereby driving the market forward. However, there are some adverse effects of air conditioning and other cooling solutions on the environment (ex., depletion of the ozone layer) as they release a significant amount of greenhouse gases. Owing to such factors, governments and other concerned authorities have enacted several mandates and standards that may pose challenges to the market's growth in the coming years.

  • Cooling towers
  • other cooling equipment

The following figure represents the contribution of different product variants to the global data center cooling market in 2016.

In terms of revenue generation, air conditioners and chillers represented the two largest product segments in the global data center cooling market. In the base year 2016, they accounted for roughly three-fourths of global market revenue. The trend is presumed to continue, and the segments are presumed to retain their dominance by 2025, exhibiting steady growth throughout the forecast period of 2017–2025. Air conditioners, being the conventional and most widely used cooling units in enterprises and agencies, account for the dominant market revenue share. On the other hand, the use of chillers in data centers is primarily to safeguard hardware infrastructure from damage due to overheating. The use of chillers allows end-users to deploy blade server racks and other server clusters.

In the current scenario, Asia Pacific represents the most lucrative data center cooling market. The trend shall prolong, and the region is anticipated to exhibit superior growth, offering healthy growth and investment opportunities for all participants across the ecosystem. India and China have enormous growth potential. Growing awareness among government agencies and enterprises regarding the need for data centers and the consequent need for cooling infrastructure is driving market demand in these countries. While several telecommunications organizations are focusing on establishing data centers, established players like China Telecom already operate the majority of the data centers owing to their growing business and positive future outlook. The increase in the number of data centers is expected to necessitate the need for data center cooling equipment, thereby driving market demand. Unlike developed markets, including North America and Europe, Asia Pacific is not witnessing a paradigm shift from conventional air-based and liquid-based cooling to free cooling.
