APAC Data Center Cooling Market Analysis

The APAC Data Center Cooling Market size is estimated at USD 2.65 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 3.79 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.40% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Due to the surge in Internet usage and the number of data centers due to enormous computational requirements by artificial intelligence (AI) and media applications in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, the data center cooling market has a massive growth.

  • According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the need for digital services is continuously increasing. Since 2010, the global population of internet users has nearly doubled, while global web traffic has increased 20-fold. On the other hand, significant advances in energy efficiency have helped to restrain the increase in energy demand from data centers and data transmission systems, each contributing to 1-1.5% of worldwide power use. Substantial government and business efforts on energy efficiency, research and development, and decarbonizing power supply and supply chains are required to significantly cut energy demand and emissions over the next decade to meet the Net Zero by 2050 Scenario.
  • Development in IT Infrastructure in emerging countries of APAC is propelling the market. The data center energy demand increased from 66 TWh in 2019 to 72 TWh in 2022 in Asia, according to IEA data released in October 2022.
  • Companies in the APAC region are trying to tackle this issue by setting up Green data centers that use Free air cooling systems instead of traditional Air conditioners. The increasing trends toward deploying green data centers for managing, storing, and distributing information helped many software businesses decrease energy consumption and total energy cost.
  • However, adaptability demands and power outages in the Asia-Pacific region confront the market to growth. A typical data center cooling system must be pre-engineered, standardized, and modular. It is expected to be flexible and scalable to match the data center's requirements in the region. This is challenging today, with firms looking to lower costs and not spend much on high-end customized cooling systems.
  • The COVID-19 regulation had a significant influence on the data center cooling sector. A staff shortage and limited investment funds have restricted data center cooling technology manufacturing and sales. Furthermore, the key market operators and the government implemented additional safety measures to develop and improve the procedures. Since it targeted the correct audience, the data center cooling sector's sales rate improved as technology evolved.

APAC Data Center Cooling Market Trends

Information Technology Industry to Witness Highest Growth

  • The Information Technology (IT) vertical has driven transformative advancements in various industries. One area that has witnessed remarkable growth due to IT innovation is the market studied. 
  • Moreover, the Asia Pacific region is experiencing significant growth in this segment. As a thriving demand hub for technology and digital transformation, the IT sector has risen to the challenge, propelling the development of the market studied to new heights.
  • Furthermore, cloud storage use has expanded over the years as SaaS provider expansion has enabled cloud storage providers to expand their capacity, which is likely to raise demand for data center cooling systems. Cloud storage companies like Microsoft, AWS, and Google are expanding their storage capacity to enable more efficient cloud workflow. These firms are investing in hyperscale transactions. 
  • As data-driven technologies, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and (IoT) continue to evolve, the demand for data centers has skyrocketed. Companies are expanding their digital footprints, requiring larger data centers or multiple smaller facilities spread across various regions. This growth has introduced new challenges in managing the cooling needs of these sprawling infrastructures.

China to Witness Significant Market Share

  • Data center cooling is a market that is expanding quickly in Asia-Pacific due to the region’s growing data center infrastructure, rising adoption of digital services, and the emergence of cloud computing. The data center need is increasing significantly and placing a greater emphasis on effectiveness and maximum uptime. 
  • China is putting much effort toward overtaking its competitors globally in the construction of data centers. The use of 5G, wearable technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence generates a booming demand for processing capacity as larger organizations attempt to scale up their data centers to assure the stability and reliability of data services.
  • Accelerator processors are entering the enterprise data center as artificial intelligence and comparable workloads become commonplace in numerous Chinese industries. All latency-sensitive services demand zero-latency technologies that use accelerating systems to handle information rapidly. The cooling requirements for these hardware accelerators are considerable and range from 200 W to more. The cooling requirements of a single machine can be almost 1 kW when paired with a powerful server. In the region's data centers, this has increased the use of immersion cooling technologies.
  • Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services are constructing massive global cloud data center networks. Alibaba Group, the cloud computing division of China's largest e-commerce company, uses a data center cooling solution that submerges server motherboards in liquid coolant to compete with these advancements. This technique makes use of liquid's more effective ability to transport heat than air. The energy efficiency enhancements of the immersion cooling solution lead to a 20% decrease in data center operating expenses.

In April 2022, ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC), among the most rapidly expanding international data center operators headquartered in Singapore, announced that it teamed up with Schneider Electric and Iceotope, leading companies in the digital transformation of cooling and energy management, respectively, to perform a proof-of-concept (POC) immersion liquid cooling demonstration in Singapore. The POC aims to investigate this developing technology, construct future-proof next-generation data centers, and minimize electricity and water use.

In May 2022, Intel announced two additional investments as part of its ongoing efforts to develop more environmentally friendly data center technological solutions. First, Intel announced plans to invest over USD 700 million on a 200,000-square-foot, cutting-edge research & development mega lab focusing on novel data centers technologies such as cooling, heating, and water management. In addition, Intel unveiled the first open intellectual property (open IP) immersion water cooling system and reference design in the technology sector. With the initial development proof of concept launched in Taiwan, Intel wants to simplify and speed up the global adoption of immersion liquid cooling technologies.
