Summary Table of Contents Industry Coverage Methodology

Industry Trends

Data Center Liquid Cooling Market size exceeded USD 1.5 billion in 2020 and is predicted to grow at 21% CAGR from 2021 to 2027. The market growth can be attributed to the high demand for noise-free and compact liquid cooling solutions in data centers.

The growing adoption of live streaming videos & OTT content globally is driving the construction of edge data centers, thereby boosting the market expansion. Edge data center operators are highly investing in innovative data center cooling technologies to maintain ideal and efficient operating conditions. Liquid cooling systems deliver effective cooling performance with a much smaller footprint compared to air-based systems. The compact size of these systems makes them highly suitable for edge data centers that are smaller in size and require the implementation of high-density hardware.

Technological advancements and demanding enterprise workloads will propel the market progression. Market players are introducing innovative cooling solutions to help data center managers in improving their computing performance and reducing energy usage. For instance, in May 2021, Green Revolution Cooling (GRC) released the ICEraQ Series 10, a redesign of its immersion cooling solutions. The solution increases sustainability by delivering a PUE of <1.03 and reduces operating costs. It decreases the total data center energy usage by up to 50% and reduces server power by around 20%.

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the data center liquid cooling market in FY2020. 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. For instance, in February 2021, Schneider Electric SE reported a revenue of USD 29,842 in 2020, representing a 7.4% decline compared to the previous year. The imposed lockdown resulted in increased usage of digital services, fueling the need for efficient cooling solutions in data centers.

Need for energy-efficient data centers to stimulate the demand for immersive liquid cooling solutions

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). 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.

Increasing investments in data centers by cloud service providers will foster the market value

In China, demand for data center liquid cooling solutions from cloud service providers is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27% by 2027 on account of the rising establishment of data centers within the country, 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.
