Key Segments in the Data Centers Cooling Market:

  • By Product: On the basis of product, the market is segmented into air conditioners, precision air conditioners, chillers, and air handling unit. Among these, the precision air conditioners segment is projected to have a large market share in the coming years. As air conditioners are cheaper than its counterparts, they are usually preferred in small spaces. Precision air conditioners can control heavy loads and manage high heat dissipation. A precision AC unit has the ability to communicate amongst each other and regulate the cooling process within them. Besides air conditioners, the chillers segment will also witness considerable growth, driven by the variations in product offerings. The air conditioners segment accounted for 25.4% of the overall market share in 2018 and this value is projected to increase further in the coming years.

  • By Data Center Analysis: Based on data center, the market is segmented into large scale data centers, medium-scale data centers, and small scale data centers. Among these, the large scale segment is likely to witness massive growth in the coming years, due to the growing adoption of cloud-based services. The increasing demand for seamless server integration services will emerge in favor of large scale data centers. Besides data centers, the mid-sized or medium scale segment will also exhibit considerable growth rate in the forthcoming years.

  • By Cooling Technique:  On the basis of cooling technique, the market is segmented into room-based, rack-based, and row-based cooling. The rack-based cooling segment is projected to witness considerable growth in the coming years, owing to exceptional properties. The demand for rack-based cooling processes has increased dramatically in recent years, accounting to the benefits they provide, especially the defined airflow paths.

  • By Industry: On the basis of industry, the market is segmented into BFSI, IT and telecommunication, manufacturing, retail, and healthcare. Among these, the IT and telecom industry has witnessed considerably high growth over other industries, owing to the massive potential held by this sector. The increasing number of hosting companies as well as Web 2.0 companies has opened up a huge potential for the growth of this segment. The growing awareness regarding energy consumption will also contribute to the growth of this segment.

  • By Region: The report analyzes the ongoing data center cooling market trends across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Among these regions, the market in North America is likely to emerge dominant. The increasing investment in data centre systems mostly by companies based in the U.S. will aid the growth of the regional market. Besides North America, the market in Asia Pacific will witness considerable growth in the coming years, owing to the presence of several large scale companies across this region.
