DUBLIN, October 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Data Center Liquid Cooling Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global data center liquid cooling market to grow at a CAGR of 15.76% during the period 2016-2020. As the cooling process accounts for 36% of the power consumed in data centers, vendors are innovating and testing techniques to reduce the operational expenditure (OPEX) associated.
The increasing use of innovative liquid cooling techniques is one of the trends spurring growth for the market. The majority of data center operators and vendors are also involved in the use of seawater to cool data centers. Microsoft recently tested the operation of small data center by sinking a pod-like structure in the ocean in a venture named Project Natick. The company is still testing its effectiveness and planning to submerge an ISO container inside the ocean in the near future. Many other data center operators are finding locations near the sea to use cold seawater as a free cooling source for its data center operations. In addition, IT infrastructure vendors such as HP, Fujitsu and IBM have already been involved in offering servers that have inbuilt water tubes to cool the heat generated at source, which is expected to contribute to this market's growth during the forecast period.
According to the report, increasing use of modular and containerized data centers is a key driver aiding to the growth of this market. Increased construction of modular data centers and adoption of containerized data centers have increased, driven by their ability to offer maximum efficiency through reduced energy and water consumption. These data centers are expected to gain considerable traction among enterprises in the future because of their effectiveness, and their ability to adapt to variations in temperature and humidity. The infrastructures housed in these data centers include servers, precision air conditioning units, and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. Modular and containerized development also include the ability to use the free-cooling technique, fostering the market for liquid cooling.
Further, the report states that growing consolidation of data centers is a major challenge the market is facing.
