In 2021, the global data center cooling market witnessed a steady growth after COVID-19

The data center industry was considered an essential service that led to a considerable increase in power capacity due to the service demand during COVID-19. In addition, the development of hyperscale data centers with a power capacity of over 30 MW will continue to drive market growth throughout the forecast period with the adoption of cooling infrastructure in higher numbers.

The global data center precision air conditioning market is dominated by the US, followed by Western Europe, China, and Nordic countries. However, the significant boost to market growth is aided by the construction of data centers in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, and Southeast Asia (except Singapore), such as India, China & Hong Kong, and South Korea. The market has also witnessed mergers and acquisitions that have increased the construction of facilities.


In terms of cooling infrastructure, North America has an increasing procurement of AI-based infrastructure solutions, which is a major driving factor for the adoption of rack-based cooling solutions. CRAC and CRAH units market is the largest revenue contributors, followed by evaporative coolers and chillers.

The market is expected to witness the adoption of modular in-rack cooling solutions during the forecast period. The most efficient cooling technology used in data centers is In-row cooling technology, equipped with a rack power density of over 6kW per rack and above.

The adoption of the in-row cooling system is very high due to its increased efficiency and prevents the mixing of hot and cold air. Due to the deployment of the 5G network, the demand for high-performance computing infrastructure procurement has grown along with the construction of edge data centers. Therefore, the installation of modular cooling infrastructure, including in-row cooling and rack-based cooling systems, is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Most of the data centers in the US and Canada are Tier III certified and have multiple levels of redundancy. In Western Europe, Tier IV facilities have adopted a 2N+1 redundant configuration for the cooling systems. European countries, including Western Europe, Nordics, and Central & Eastern Europe, are the primary revenue generators for adiabatic cooling units to cool data centers using outside free air.

In the UK, most of the facilities are either Tier III or Tier IV certified by the Uptime Institute due to high standard design and construction that include redundant configuration. In the Nordic region, colocation service providers are developing Tier III common facilities adopting N+1 or 2N redundant cooling systems.


The North American data center precision air conditioning market share is expected to cross USD 1.01 billion by 2027. The US has witnessed more than 110 facilities that became operational in 2021, followed by Canada with more than 11 projects in the same period.

North America is a strong driver for the data center market, especially with the construction of hyperscale facilities with over 25 MW of power capacity. In North America, the data center market growth is centered in northern Virginia, Dallas, Chicago, and the Silicon Valley region in California, as well as New York and Atlanta. The region has witnessed an increase in investments in Tier III facilities, with the US dominating the market.

In APAC, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and India are the primary data center markets witnessed the investments from global colocation companies and the cloud service providers. In addition, the region is witnessing investments from edge computing locations across various countries, such as China, India, and Australia. In Latin America, Brazil is the primary data center investments contributor, followed by Mexico, Chile, Colombia, and other Latin American Countries. In Latin America, most data centers use air-based cooling systems with N+1 and N+2 redundancies.

In the Middle East & African countries, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Israel, Kenya, Nigeria, Turkey, and others are the major countries in the data center investments across the region. The data center facilities in the region majorly adopt air-based cooling systems because of the scarcity of water availability in most countries. The air-based cooling systems adopted in the area include CRAH & CRAC, in-row, and centralized precision air conditioning systems.


  • The global precision air conditioning market is expected to become competitive with the growing adoption of HPC infrastructure for artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads among data centers.

  • The global data center precision air conditioning market will face intense competition in developed and matured markets such as North American countries, China, Japan, and Western European countries.
