Global Data Center Cooling Market

Increasing IT infrastructure spending, and more so as a result of the pandemic, is creating avenues for expansion of existing as well as new data center facilities globally. As such, software-based data centers are also contributing to the market growth by providing an improved level of automation. A shift towards digital transformation amidst the pandemic has further instigated the need for building data center facilities that offer scalability, security, and flexibility. Therefore, as investments in new datacenter facilities witness an uptick, the demand for the datacenter cooling market is also expected to witness a favorable progress.

Datacenters are a hotspot of all critical IT infrastructure across several verticals, including manufacturing, BFSI, retail, healthcare, etc. The need to manage huge volumes of data while offering networking capabilities is the key reason driving datacenter investments in these verticals. However, datacenters dissipate high amount of heat and hence require cooling solutions to keep the system working without any outages. Therefore, datacenter cooling solutions are of paramount importance to any data center facility.
