The widespread application of cloud computing, big data, and IoT has revolutionized the distributed computing landscape, accelerating the need for data centers, which has increased the demand for advanced cooling systems and data center cooling solutions. The market revenue is poised to grow further supported by the rising requirement for liquid-based and portable cooling technologies in data centers to minimize carbon emissions.

The data center cooling market is anticipated to be influenced by notable government measures to decrease carbon footprints from high-power density facilities. For instance, data centers in the U.S. utilize around 70 billion kWh of power each year, accounting for approximately 3% of overall electricity usage. As a result, data center operators are focused on implementing energy-efficient and cost-effective data center cooling systems in order to minimize power consumption.

Phantom leakage problems may impede the industry growth

Phantom leakages are commonly occurring breaches wherein the flow of frozen air from equipment underneath the raised platform onto support columns or nearby areas and can cause a loss of pressure in the IT environment, allowing dusty or humid exterior air to enter, which limits the adoption of cooling technologies and systems. However, such scenarios can be avoided by enforcing requirements to elevate the floor, examine the perimeter, support columns, and plug the loophole, which is likely to help product acceptance.

Increasing power densities in data centers to fuel the solution segment share
