The data center cooling market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.61% over the analyzed period to reach a market size of US$8,995.385 million in 2026 from US$4,440.740 million in 2019. Data Center Cooling tools are used to control the temperature inside the data centers for better performance. Data Centers house a large number of data storage hardware devices that emit huge heat as a result of continuous operations.

This heat generated surges the temperature inside the data centers, impacting both, machines and humans. Furthermore, excessive heat generation leads to severe damages and hazards capable of causing loss of life and revenue. Datacenter cooling devices such as air conditioners, chillers, cooling towers, and others facilitate ventilation and reduction of the internal temperature of data centers. Cooling devices also increase the efficiency of data centers and are economical in terms of cost. They also reduce potential chances of hazards and interference in work. Hence the prime reason supporting the growth of data center cooling equipment is surging data centers across the globe. Rising global warming is resulting in changes in Earth’s temperature, raising it, to be specific, and in turn, increasing the demand for cooling devices. However, the cost and effectiveness of these devices may hinder the market.   

Mushrooming growth of data centers and rising adoption of cloud computing across various industry verticals will boost the market for the data center cooling industry

The prime driver of growth in the Data Center Cooling market is the mushrooming growth of the data centers around the globe. Since data centers house a large number of data storing devices, a surge in demand for additional storage space has surged the construction of data centers in the past decade. Further, growing new channels of business, such as the virtual business model, is increasing the demand for the data center for storage purposes. Also, organizations today tend to outsource in-house server equipment, to save space within the organization and gain the benefits of security and other services through pooling funds, in a third-party data center, also known as data colocation. This market is anticipated to grow at an exponential rate of 13.84% per annum (Source: KSI Global Data Center Colocation Market Report) and considerably increase the demand for new data centers.

Based on industry verticals, the market for data center cooling devices is segmented into banking and financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, communication and telecommunication, energy, education, government, media and entertainment, and others. The banking and financial services segment of the market is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecasted period owing to the sensitive financial data the segment stores, which also requires utmost security from robbery and theft. A sure growth of It, communication, and telecommunication will also employ considerable market growth along with technological up-gradation in the industry. The Healthcare sector is predicted to grow exponentially due to advancement in the sector for better economical development. Education and government fragments hold a significant share of the market with the growing adoption of technology and related devices and accessories.  

Small and Medium Enterprises have huge growth potential owing to the rising employment of cloud computing technology

The data center cooling market is divided into small enterprise, medium enterprise, and large enterprise based on enterprise size. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are expected to provide a huge market growth potential for both, data centers and data centers cooling equipment. With a special role in developing companies, SMEs play a crucial part in economic development and hence are receiving support from governments. This includes educating and training for better analyzing business opportunities and growth, providing financial support, and policy formation for an easier and economical business environment. Increasing adoption of cloud computing is another reason boosting the growth of data centers and hence, in turn, data center cooling equipment. Particularly among the SMEs for grabbing greater business opportunities. According to a report published by the World Bank, usage of cloud computing technology has surged significantly among SMEs with globally 17% SMEs using public cloud means while 11% of SMEs use the private cloud model. In India, home to 42.50 million SMEs, in 2018, 72% of SMEs use cloud computing for better business operations. This results in the pooling of a large quantum of data requiring storage centers with proper facilities.
