By Component

Air conditioning solutions will witness immense growth in the data center cooling market owing to their energy-efficiency properties and cost-effectiveness. These systems supply cold air through the inlet of data center racks and remove hot air from the air outlet. They are widely adopted across the data center industry owing to the need to control humidity and temperature levels in the IT facilities. In data centers, overheating of servers or devices results in the emergence of hot spots, which requires precision cooling. This has led to the high adoption of precision air conditioners over standard ones. Manufacturers are focusing on offering efficient and modern precision air-conditioning systems with enhanced performance, speed, and cooling efficiency. For instance, STULZ GMBH offers CyberAir 3 PRO DX ASR, which provides 40% energy savings through indirect dynamic free cooling technique, thus ensuring the reliability of the data centers. Moreover, these systems cool precisely, reliably, quietly, and are compact in design allowing easier transport and installation.

By Cooling Technique

In 2016, the room-based cooling techniques accounted for majority of the data center cooling market share owing to their easy adoption and ability to cool a wide area. These techniques consist of one/more air conditioners that supply cool air by being entirely unrestricted by dampers and vents. In these methods, airflow is dependent on the unique constraints of the room such as ceiling height, room shape, rack layout, location, and the distribution of power among the IT loads. Organizations are highly focusing on evaluating data center architectures, which would offer them flexibility, agility, and selecting the right cooling solution. In the hyperscale data center industry, room-based cooling solutions are widely adopted as they help in cooling the entire IT facility at reduced costs. The technique uses a small number of ducts and pipes compared to other cooling techniques. Moreover, it helps to maintain the temperature within a permissible limit and cools data center by passing air through the outlets. The cooling technique is witnessing high adoption due to its energy-efficient cooling.

By Application

Healthcare applications will expand at a CAGR of over 7% over the forecast timeline owing to the expansion in the healthcare infrastructure and the need to scale data center capacities. This growth is largely facilitated by the increase in data collected by medical practitioners such as the complete medical history of a patient, prescriptions & diagnosis information, and information of the doctor/surgeon, among others. Industries are actively adopting data center solutions due to its high-efficiency and cost-effectiveness benefits. Moreover, the increasing inclination toward digitalization and the resultant demand for data storage & availability has driven the demand for effective cooling solutions in the healthcare sector. The rise in urbanization in the developed countries coupled with the rising government investments for the development of healthcare infrastructure will also provide an impetus for the data center cooling market demand.
