The Expansion of the Liquid Cooling Market in Data Centers, Background and Challenges

The global market for data center liquid cooling is projected to reach US$2.6 billion to US$7.8 billion during the forecast period (2023-2028), at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.84%.


According to the latest study, among the various regions of the world, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in the data center liquid cooling market during the forecast period. There is a growing awareness of the value of sustainable practices and green data centers in Asia Pacific.


What is a liquid cooling system?


In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from data centers, green data centers are being built using renewable energy and the development of energy efficient solutions is accelerating.
According to current estimates, data centers consume about 3% of the world’s total electricity, and nearly all of the energy used in data centers is related to cooling.


Liquid cooling systems use water or other liquids to directly cool servers and other equipment in data centers. These systems are more efficient than air-based cooling systems, but require specialized equipment and maintenance. Cooling is essential for data centers to ensure that equipment operates at optimal temperatures and avoids overheating that can lead to system failure and data loss.


Background to the expansion of the liquid cooling market


Advances in technology have made liquid cooling easier to maintain, easier to expand, and more affordable. As a result, liquid usage has been reduced by more than 15% in built-in hot and humid climate data centers and 80% in cooler regions. The energy dedicated to liquid cooling can be recycled to heat the building and water, and the application of advanced engineered coolants can effectively reduce air conditioning’s carbon dioxide emissions effectively.
