A high demand for self–contained enclosures with integrated hardware to support the capacity of critical IT components with monitoring & management software devices will drive the micro data center market expansion. As micro data center is a unified physical infrastructure solution, it significantly reduces the project timeframe compared to traditional bulkier data centers. This enables data center owners in the market to reduce the deployment time Their capacity can be easily increased by deploying additional micro data centers in the same or a different facility, depending on the available bandwidth, space, and electrical capacity.

Increasing adoption of edge computing technology attributed to the demand from compute intensive applications, such as IoT and AI, will surge the market revenue. Growing consumption of digital services resulting in a sharp rise of data has contributed to the demand for high performance data centers. Placing data centers closer to the point of application reduces the bandwidth costs and latency issues. In August 2020, EdgeMicro launched five micro data centers across the U.S. to offer enhanced edge solutions in the underserved markets, creating stronger connectivity options.

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic has negatively impacted the global economic conditions. Lockdowns imposed by several government organizations to ensure social distancing and to stop the spread of the virus have resulted in a temporary closure of industries globally. The temporary shutdown of factories coupled with the restrictions imposed on travel hampered the micro data center industry growth in the first half of 2020. However, with relaxations in lockdown rules and resumption of industrial activities in the second half of 2020, the industry will regain traction.

Growing concerns over high energy consumption by cooling equipment will boost demand for efficient data center cooling solutions

In the micro data center market, cooling solutions are estimated to register growth of over 24% during the forecast timeframe. An increase in the energy consumed by data centers has encouraged several government administrations to stress on reducing energy consumption and Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). In June 2019, the Shanghai (China) government issued data center policies that require PUEs of new data center to be less than 1.3 and below 1.4 for existing data center. Market players are focusing on introducing high–quality cooling solutions to ensure the optimum functioning of data centers.

The applications of AI, IoT, and edge computing are surging the demand for increased chip and rack power densities in the market. Data center owners are focusing on methods to enhance the density without compromising on the compactness of the infrastructure. The heat profile for GPU–based servers in AI–based applications is double than that of traditional servers, thereby boosting the demand for efficient micro data center cooling solutions. Overheating is a major cause of data center downtime, leading to huge monetary losses. The micro data centers will gain traction with the growing demand for efficient cooling solutions for optimum data center operations.
