The central processing unit (CPU) cooler market is anticipated to experience growth with a CAGR of 3.73% in order to attain a market size of US$2.307 billion by 2027, from US$1.785 billion in 2020. The CPU cooler market will grow on account of the increasing adoption of personal computers, workstations and server computers all around the world. The market will also expand as a result of the increasing adoption of big data and automation services. However, the high prices of efficient cooling solutions will limit the growth of the CPU cooler market. The North American region has a sizable market share due to the early adoption of technology and high investment in research and development of computing devices. The Asia-Pacific market will see numerous growth opportunities as a result of rising consumer electronics demand, including personal computers, and rising investment in cloud computing solutions in emerging markets such as China, Japan, and India. Furthermore, with an increasing middle-class population creating a large consumer base and a rise in disposable income, there is a high demand for portable computing devices, which include laptops and tablets, fueling the market demand for CPU coolers in the forecast period.

With the increasing adoption of computing devices, the growing electronics industry will fuel market demand during the forecast period.

The electronics industry is among the fastest-growing industries owing to the high demand for electronic products, which includes consumer electronics as well. This is due to the fact that society is becoming smarter while remaining digitally connected. China in the APAC region is known as the electronic hub, but this is slowly shifting to the countries of Southeast Asia, which include Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and India. Many multinational corporations (MNCs) are shifting production to India due to rising labour costs, low manufacturing costs, and lucrative investment opportunities. Furthermore, the electronics industry in India is growing at a fast pace due to the burgeoning domestic demand for electronic products and rising disposable income. Government initiatives such as Make in India, Digital India, projects regarding the building of smart cities, modernization of railways, a growing automotive industry, and growing automation in the industries are also contributing to the growth of the electronics industry, which will further drive market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, India is home to talented individuals with strong capabilities in design and research and development, which contributes to boosting industrial growth.  Additionally, the growing consumption in the Latin America, the Middle East region, and the North African region is fueling the electronics industry.

The growing number of data centers is boosting the market demand for CPU coolers in the forecast period. The advent of managed data center services further provides an opportunity for the market to thrive in the forecast period and in the upcoming years.

The number of data centres worldwide is set to increase with companies investing in the building of new data centers and renovating old ones. Also, with the growing number of data centers and increasing internet penetration, the market is expected to be fueled by the growing number of data centres at the global level. The growth percentage of internet users worldwide from 2000-2022 is 1,416% (source: Internet world stats).

In addition, with the introduction of managed data center services, the market demand for data centers has significantly increased with a high growth rate, fueling the market demand for CPU coolers as well. Some of the major factors driving the demand for managed data center services are their cost-effectiveness and the growing adoption of cloud computing solutions amongst SMEs, especially in developing countries. Increasing investment towards the setup of edge data centers to reduce latency in Tier-II cities poses a significant market opportunity for managed data center services.

An increasing trend towards large and medium enterprises opting for managed data centers is being widely observed owing to the cost-efficiency, flexibility, and improvement in organizational efficiency they  offer. The cost of setting up an in-house data center involves high capital expenditure, along with maintenance expenditure on a periodic basis. In addition, an enterprise has to incur high wages for hiring technical staff for upgrading, maintenance, and compliance with stringent government regulations. The space in an in-house data center is also limited, and it can be scaled by increasing the capital expenditure on IT infrastructure. Consequently, enterprises are opting for managed data centers as it saves on huge capital expenditure on IT infrastructure. In addition, managed data centers offer flexibility and scalability by offering a pay-per-use model, and any enterprise can increase their use at their convenience without the need to incur any substantial expenditure. Furthermore, increasing investment towards the adoption of automation solutions and big data across industry verticals coupled with state-of-the-art services offered by vendors so as to comply with standard government regulations will further propel the demand for managed data center services, fueling the market growth in the forecast period.

On the basis of geography, North America and Europe are expected to hold a dominant market share in the number of data centers and managed data center services owing to the early adoption of technology, the presence of key market players, and booming expenditure on IT infrastructure. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to experience substantial growth in the forecast period on account of the growing number of SMEs adopting cloud computing solutions and booming investment in big data and Industry 4.0 across industry verticals over the forecast period.

Germany is one of Europe’s largest countries in terms of size, population, and also in terms of the number of colocation data centers. It is among the four leading colocation markets along with the United Kingdom, France, and the Netherlands. Frankfurt is known for its largest number of data centers, in addition to being considered as one of Europe’s nerve centers regarding bandwidth. The country has one of the world’s most technologically advanced communication systems with an extensive network of automatic telephone exchanges, boosting the global colocation market owing to the thriving country’s data center industry. The ICT sector of the country is considered the most innovative one. Additionally, Germany is one of the largest ICT markets globally. The German government prioritises ICT, with the country's economic and innovation policy centred on digital infrastructure, the digital economy, and digital workplaces.  Hence, this is providing strong growth prospects for the market to prosper in the forecast period.

Recent development and expansion

  • AMD unveiled its Ryzen 7000 series of desktop processors in August 2022, with significant improvements in performance, clock speed, and (in some cases) power over its predecessors. It features a new 6nm I/O die that supports hardware-accelerated video encode/decode as well as multi-display support. There is also PCIe 5.0 support, which means much faster SSDs and, depending on the motherboard, faster graphics.
  • Intel announced its new 12th Generation Core processors for desktop computers in October 2021. Six new models have been unveiled. In terms of performance, the new 12th Gen processors are among the best in the world for gaming, and they will also outperform previous-generation Intel chips in terms of productivity.
  • NVIDIA announced its first data centre CPU in April 2021, an Arm-based processor that outperforms the fastest servers on the most complex AI and high-performance computing workloads.
