Data Center Cooling Market Overview:

According to the researches, it is expected that the Data Center Cooling Industry market value will be USD 24.86 Billion during the forecast period. Additionally, it is also anticipated that the market can grow with a CAGR of 10.31% in this period. 

The data cooling systems are massively used by the data center operators. A data cooling system is highly essential in making sure that the temperature created while using an extensive amount of data must not cross the acceptable heat range. Dissipation is the main function of the data cooling centre to make sure that no damage is caused due to equipment overheating. As the environment health is deteriorating, the companies are opting for sustainable cooling options. Sustainable and eco-friendly power source cooling for data centers can be achieved via free-air cooling systems; this makes the chillers shut for at least 75% of the time. Data centre of Apple in North Carolia has this sustainable, eco-friendly data center cooling function. 

In addition to this, companies coming under the huge pressure of the public, environmentalists and government agencies to take initiative of preserving the environment is propelling the demand of eco-friendly solutions and boost the Data Center Cooling Market Growth.

Market Dynamics:Drivers:There are several driving factors for market growth. Some of them are- increasing awareness for green data, efficiency improvement in data centers, and increasing construction of data centers in the Asia-Pacific.

In fact, vendors who deal with hyper-scale construction units such as Apple, Facebook, AWS, Goole Inc are already investing billions of dollars in developing new facilities in the market. This will eventually drive the overall market for Data Center Cooling.

Opportunities:The market is going through growth opportunities because of high airflow, enhancement in humidity control, troubleshooting, remote monitoring, improvement in air filtration, instant accuracy in temperature control and high capacity of loading.

Challenges:The traditional methods of cooling leads to great quantity of Carbon emission, so the technologies used and coolants used could be possible challenges for the Data Center Cooling Market Opportunities and this may impact Data Center Cooling Market Trends as well.

Restrains:High level of power consumption during the cooling process and huge setup cost are two factors working as restrains of the growth of the market. Additionally, the backup plan for any outage could also be one of the factors which may negatively impact the market trend.

Market Segmentation:The market of data centre cooling is globally segregated by means of infrastructure of cooling, Technique, systems and geography

From the perspective of Cooling Infrastructure:There would make great hype for cooling system (Dual Feed) during the tenure of forecast. Cooling infra has two major divisions: systems of cooling and other related infrastructure. With the cooling system having secured the largest share in 2017, expected to grow around 5% CAGR for the forecast period as well. Dual water feeds have already got a great deal of preference across various data centres. Additionally, water treatment plants on-site will only help boost the market share. Moreover, the ever-increasing IT-Load will only help in achieving more revenue for the Data centre cooling market.

From the Perspective of Cooling Technique:Evaporative cooling technique for systems and increment in the usage of economizer are two aspects which are going to play pivotal role in the market of data centre cooling. Based on different kinds of cooling techniques, data center market is divided in two parts: Cooling based on air and liquid. In 2017, the largest market shared was secured by cooling systems that are air-based; it is expected to clock a 7% CARG during the period of forecast.

Free cooling solutions and CRAC are going to be most-sought after cooling solutions in IT facilities across the world.

From the perspective of Cooling Systems:There is a growing trend to accept 2N CRAC and CRAG cooling units and this trend is going to boost the global market for Data Center Cooling. Below are some of the categories of cooling systems for data center facilities:


  • Cooling Towers

  • Chillers

  • Economizers

  • Evaporative Cooling units

  • Dry cooling units

The important thing to note in this aspect is the fact that the segment consisting of CARH and CRAC had topped the market in 2017 and expected to register a CAGR of almost 5% during the period of forecast. The two primary driving force behind the growing adoption rate of CARH & CRAC are hyper scale deployment and mega IT facilities.

Regional Analysis:According to the Data Center Cooling Market Forecast, the regional market is estimated to grow with a significant rate of CAGR during the assessment period. The regional analysis of the data center cooling market can be done for the following regions-

  • North America

  • Europe

  • Asia-Pacific

  • Rest of the world

As per the expectation, North America may contribute the most with 40% of the overall revenue for the forecast period. The US market is expected to register an increasing CAGR of 3% during the tenure of forecast. It is likely to hold the biggest Data Center Cooling Market Size  of regional market. The primary source of revenue comes from States like Virginia and Texas. During the peak winter and summer, usage of techniques like economizer or evaporative cooling systems, the overall market for Data Center Cooling system will get a new high.

However, as per the prediction, the fastest growing market for Data Center cooling is going to be the Asia-Pacific region. The growing use of IoT in Consumer electronics and Smartphones is one of the reasons this region will get greatly impacted. Demand for wearable devices in several countries like Japan, South Korea, India can also play a big role to creating more scope for the global market for Data Center cooling systems.
