As servers become more sophisticated and generate more heat, the data center liquid cooling industry is set to surpass $3 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.
The matter of overheating becomes a major point of concern when it results it power outages and unplanned downtime. This has made efficient, reliable cooling, power, support systems extremely crucial.
The increasing demand for digital services and unprecedented growth in AI and machine learning has helped push data center liquid cooling market share to new heights. Data centers demand efficient cooling systems to reduce power consumption, as over 30% of the power is used for cooling purposes. Processor performance is also severely affected by overheating resulting in slower operations.
However, with businesses increasingly shifting toward mainframes and supercomputers, liquid cooling technology seems to be an ideal solution for modern data centers. Furthermore, the consistently changing demands for new, uninterrupted digital has been prompting data centers to adopt innovative technologies that will help boost data center liquid cooling market in the coming years.
The growing implementation of AI, big data, cloud, and machine learning in newly developed software solutions has also been driving the industry growth. With the development of more powerful chips capable of rapidly processing data for new complex applications, the amount of power consumption has exponentially increased, leading to more component heat generation.
For instance, reports claim that the heat profile for many GPU based servers is double than that of traditional servers.
Speaking of the regional expanse of the data center liquid cooling market, it would be prudent to state that APAC and Europe are two prominent geographical revenue pockets for the industry. Asia Pacific data center liquid cooling industry will witness significant growth over the ensuing years, driven by the increase in data capabilities brought forth by the growing digitalization in every possible industry sector.
The expansion of the European data center liquid cooling industry can be majorly credited to the massive presence of numerous colocation facilities across the continent. Powered by the advent of robust digitization across most industries, in tandem with the rapid adoption of machine learning technology in the region, European market share is set to soar high in the years to come.
Liquid-based cooling solutions have more heat removal capabilities and can reduce data center power consumption by about 70%. The paradigm shift toward high energy consuming applications and the deployment of AI, big data, and machine learning will mandate the adoption of liquid cooling solutions for smoother operations in the years ahead.
