About Cooling Solutions
Cooling solutions are used in data centers worldwide to lower the heat generated by IT equipment. Data centers use cooling systems such as air conditioners (CRAC and CRAH), chillers, cooling towers, economizers, and others. These cooling units involve the use of air and liquid-based cooling techniques. 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 associated.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the data center cooling solutions market in EMEA to grow at a CAGR of 11.27% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Data Center Cooling Solutions Market in EMEA 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the data center cooling solutions market in EMEA: Airedale Air Conditioning, Black Box, Climaveneta, Eaton, Emerson Network Power, Geist, Rittal, Schneider Electric, and STULZ.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, AERMEC, Alfa Laval, Belden, ClimateWorx, Colt, Conteg, Daikin, ebm-papst, Fuji Electric, Green, KyotoCooling, Munters, and Trane.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Containment cooling solutions will be a key trend for market growth. The surge in data center rack power density has paved the way for solutions such as containment cooling, where aisle containment prevents the mixing of cold and hot air. The implementation of these solutions has also decreased power consumption among data centers worldwide. In addition, it helps data centers reduce hot spots and their carbon footprint. Data center operators can use containment solutions available in the market, such as in-rack and in-row, to achieve efficient airflow separation in data centers. The containment is attached to ceiling plenums, which can redirect hot air to the CRAC systems of data centers. Development of advanced cooling mechanisms for data centers will propel market growth in the near future.”
According to the report, increased investment in modular data centers will be a key driver for market growth. Construction of modular data centers has increased, driven by their ability to provide moderate computational power to businesses. These data centers will gain considerable traction among enterprises in the future because of their effectiveness and their ability to adapt to variations in temperature and humidity. The infrastructure housed in these data centers includes servers, air conditioning units, and UPS systems. Many vendors are manufacturing modular data center containers globally with the use of closed-coupled cooling solutions (rack or row cooling solutions).
Further, the report states that environmental concerns will be a challenge for the market. Environmental challenges such as variations in temperature, extreme humidity, and high amount of dust are affecting data center operations globally. Operating data centers in the Middle Eastern countries, where the ambient temperature is 32-degree Fahrenheit in winter, and more than 122-degree Fahrenheit in summer is a difficult task in terms of cooling. Data center operators, in countries that have adverse climatic conditions, are compelled to adjust humidity controllers based on local requirements. These controllers must be configured to react to sudden changes in the environment, which has made the management and operation of data centers cumbersome.
