Dual feed cooling systems to gain traction during the forecast period
The data center cooling market by cooling infrastructure is segmented into cooling systems and other infrastructure. The cooling systems segment dominated the majority of the market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. The increasing focus on developing Tier III facilities with N+N or 2N redundancy for CRAC and CRAH units to increase the efficiency and productivity of this infrastructure in the global market. The growing popularity of using dual water feeds in datacenters with on-site water treatment plants will revolutionize this segment during the forecast period. The growing importance of ASHRAE facilities cooling guidelines and the Uptime Institute’s Tier standards for redundant design will encourage operate flexible designs in the segment in the global market. Colocation operators investing millions of dollars in developing facilities are involved in the adoption of efficient cooling systems and incorporate facility design. Increasing IT load will help generate more revenues in the data center cooling market over the next few years.
Increasing deployment of the economizer and evaporative cooling systems to boost revenues in the global data center cooling market
.Air-based cooling segment occupied the largest market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecast period. The increasing use of traditional CRACs and free cooling solutions to cool the IT infrastructure in facilities is augmenting the growth of this segment. Free cooling is gaining traction among facilities operators in the US, Europe, Nordic, Canada, and Japan. The growing adoption of evaporative coolers that facilitate partial cooling with indoor CRAC units will help transform the global data center cooling market over the next few years. The different types of air-based cooling solutions available in the global market are DX-based CRAC units, free cooling technique solutions, air-cooled chiller-based cooling, and dry coolers. Innovations in cooling infrastructures and the implementation of on-site water treatment plants will transform the global market.
The adoption of 2N CRAC or CRAH units will augment the evolution of the market during the forecast period.
CRAC & CARH units segment dominated the market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of approximately 5% during the forecast period. The deployment of hyperscale and mega facilities is driving the adoption of 2N CRAC or CRAH units in the global market. The focus on building flexible designs and the incorporation of additional units or units of higher capacity as per the requirement of the consumers is propelling the growth of this segment in the global data center cooling market. The construction of modern facilities that operate at a rack power density of over 10 kw will drive the demand for sophisticated systems in the market. The increasing use of CRAC and CRAH units to supply cold air and exhaust hot air from the data hall will boost development in the global market during the forecast period.
MARKET BY GEOGRAPHY
North America contributes around 40% of the revenues in the global data center cooling market during the forecast period.
The Americas occupied maximum market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 3% during the forecast period. In the Americas, the US generated most of the revenue through increased facility investments in South Eastern and South Western regions, namely, Virginia and Texas. The US witnessed the highest number of facilities construction, and it’s the largest revenue generator in the global market. The implementation of free cooling techniques such as evaporative coolers, economizers, and free cooling chillers among facilities in the Americas that experience cold winter conditions and peak summer conditions will boost revenues in the global data center cooling market. A few data centers in South-Eastern and the Western US are likely to prefer chilled water systems with the economizer mode to facilitate partial cooling of the facility using outside air. The adoption of innovative cooling systems such as direct liquid cooling and liquid immersion cooling solutions will contribute to the evolution of the American market over the next few years.
