Global Data Center Liquid Immersion Cooling Market - Insights
Data center immersion cooling system includes direct immersing IT hardware in a non-conductive liquid. The heat produced by electronic components directly transferred to the fluid, which reduced the demand for active cooling components such as fans, heat sinks, interface materials. Global data center liquid immersion cooling market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 37% in the forecast period (2018-2025). Increasing number of hyper scale data centers is one of the major driving factors for growth of the data center liquid immersion cooling market. According to Coherent Market Insights, in 2016, there were 338 hyper scale data centers up from 259 in 2015 and is projected to reach 628 hyper scale data centers by 2021. In addition to this, hyper scale data centers accounted for 39% of the total data center traffic in 2016 and is projected to reach 55% by 2021. Hence, this increasing data traffic in hyper scale data center has led to increasing computing process. This has resulted in rising heat generation in hyper scale data center and therefore, to overcome the heat of these data centers demand for data center liquid immersion cooling solutions is increasing significantly.
Liquid cooling solution segment is projected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Liquid cooling segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to integration of advanced engineered coolants. The liquid cooling solutions provide cooling with low carbon footprint, which is propelling demand for direct liquid cooling solution in the data center liquid immersion cooling market. Furthermore, advantages offered by these system such as efficient cooling for high performance computing is also expected to drive market growth.
