Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Data Center Liquid Cooling Market is accounted for $1.82 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $7.12 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 21.5% during the forecast period. The data center liquid cooling is a method that works on the principle of liquid submersion technology. The data centers require more electricity and, therefore, produce more heat, to cool down this heat these data center liquid cooling solutions are used. In most of the data centers, liquid cooling solutions, the liquid is brought into a Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) or a Computer Room Air Handler (CRAH) unit to cool the air inside the data center. The uniform and active cooling of high thermal energy is the major factor that boosts the data center liquid cooling market growth.
Growing need for energy-efficient data centers
As cooling systems account for 30% to 60% of the energy consumption in data centers, operators are focusing on implementing advanced cooling technologies to maintain efficiency. The U.S. data center liquid cooling market is projected to expand at 17% growth rate through 2027 led by the stringent government regulations on reducing carbon footprints from high-density data centers. For instance, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) by the U.S. government encourages organizations & agencies to improve energy efficiency in data centers through its Center of Expertise (CoE).
High expenditure and maintenance costs
Adaptability requirements are a significant challenge for data center operators looking to adopt cooling systems. Data centers are complex, with a vast server array, and they carry the uncertainty of quantity, timing, and location. Cooling at this high density is very difficult, and it involves many unnecessary costs. A typical data center cooling system needs to be standardized, pre-engineered, and modular. It is required to be scalable and flexible to meet the needs of the data center. This is tedious, with companies looking to cut costs and not willing to spend much on high-end customized cooling systems. Companies are unsure of whether their present cooling systems can sustain the future server load. This makes infrastructure changes frequent and pushes companies that are unwilling to invest much in newer cooling systems.
Growing investments in data centers
The demand for data center liquid cooling solutions from cloud service providers is expected to grow at a rapid phase on account of the rising establishment of data centers, which is due to increasing government concerns regarding the safety of customer data. For instance, China's Cybersecurity Law mandates data localization requirements from critical data center operators to process, store, and analyze the data within China’s borders. This has encouraged cloud service providers to establish data centers in the country for securely processing a massive amount of data. In June 2021, Microsoft Corporation announced its plan to open four new data centers in China by early 2022. This will accelerate the industry demand for energy-efficient data center liquid cooling systems.
Disruptions due to the pandemic
Data center operators are wary of potential downtime losses while shifting to new cooling systems. Hence, they overlook operational expenditure and continue using outdated cooling systems. This trend slows down the adoption of new technologies that are perceived to be untested. Further, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic posed significant stress on multiple economies across various sectors. This has majorly shifted the focus toward a digital economy. The ongoing COVID-19 / coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted the data center liquid cooling market. The imposed lockdown resulted in increased usage of digital services, fuelling the need for efficient cooling solutions in data centers. But, on the other hand the temporary closure of manufacturing facilities resulted in a significant delay of new product launches and a decline in the financial revenue of market leaders.
The enterprises segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The enterprises segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth due to the hrowing IT needs from consumers. Enterprises require data centers for storing mission-critical data to perform efficient business operations. Various enterprises are setting up data center infrastructures for data management and centralization of an organization’s IT infrastructure. Data center services help cut down cost and maintain server availability by reducing downtime and improving disaster recovery capabilities. Moreover, these services facilitate the rapid deployment and commissioning of data centers, which further boost the efficiency and reduce the CAPEX. Owing to such benefits, enterprises are increasingly adopting data center liquid cooling for their data centers. In addition, these enterprises need to reduce CAPEX and OPEX, which can be achieved through efficient data center operations.
The large data centers segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The large data centers segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Large data centers are characterized by high usage of computing power to provide for data center needs of large companies. Currently, these data centers are witnessing great adoption of rack- and row-based cooling solutions but are projected to witness higher adoption of immersion cooling solutions owing to the greater cooling requirements of high-density server racks. These data centers are characterized by tight constraints in operational costs and greater need for energy efficiency.
Region with highest share:
North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the increasing technology adoption among enterprises for reducing data center energy consumption and the presence of a large number of data center liquid cooling vendors in the region. The United States is home to many tech giants, such as Facebook and Apple, wherein, the volume of Big Data is tremendously increasing; moreover, companies are laying new strategies to ascend a number of data centers. In the United States, the demand and rate of adoption for cloud-based computing are rapidly increasing, owing to which, data centers are ascending in the country, thereby, propelling the utilization of data center liquid cooling. Liquid cooling is now highly preferred over conventional air cooling, due to its greater efficiency and higher economic violability.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing expansion of data centers across the region. The favorable environmental conditions, such as easy availability of land, cheaper electricity, accessible renewable energy, and tax incentives, are encouraging data center service providers to invest in this region. Compared with traditional air cooling, liquid cooling systems offer a smaller footprint, higher energy efficiency, enhanced server reliability, low noise, and lower total cost of ownership. For instance, in December 2020, NTT Limited opened its London 1 Data Center to expand its data center footprint in the UK. These companies are shifting toward liquid cooling solutions to meet the expectations of high-density racks.
