Data Center Precision Air Conditioner Market in APAC 2017-2021
About Data Center Precision Air Conditioner
Precision air conditioners are very reliable systems that are capable of operating round the clock offering precise control over temperature and humidity inside data centers. These units are specifically designed to cool the IT equipment inside data centers. They normally comprise an indoor and outdoor unit. Precision air conditioners are used to supply cold air through the cold air inlets of data center racks and exhaust hot air from air outlets. This hot air is again treated to optimal temperature and humidity and is supplied back as cold air.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the data center precision air conditioner market in APAC to grow at a CAGR of 9.47% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the data center precision air conditioner market in APAC for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of precision air conditioning units among new data centers and data centers that will undergo renovation during the forecast period in APAC.The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Data Center Precision Air Conditioner Market in APAC 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the data center precision air conditioner market in APAC: Airedale Air Conditioning, Climaveneta, Emerson Network Power (Vertiv), Rittal, Schneider Electric, and STULZ.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: CITEC, ClimateWorx International, Conteg, Data Aire, Delta Power Solutions, Huawei Technologies, Parker Hannifin, RC Group (Mitsubishi Group), and Swegon.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is increase in use of DCIM solutions. DCIM facilitates management of the cooling system in data center through remote software via sensors attached to the cooling systems. Vendors are increasingly focusing on providing DCIM systems to customers as they can remotely monitor and manage temperature and humidity in data centers. DCIM also helps in configuring systems according to the external environment. Sensors fitted to the cooling system enable customization of cooling units.”
According to the report, one driver in market is need to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. Cooling systems consume around 40% of electricity in data centers and this has led to the increased OPEX of data centers through electricity costs. Many data center operators in APAC are involved in analyzing alternative methods to cool data center and reduce OPEX. We note that precision air conditioners are introduced by vendors because such technology enables precision control over the temperature and humidity inside data centers. Comfort air conditioners are not designed to adapt to the changes in the cooling needs of a data center. With precision cooling, control over temperature and humidity results in effective cooling of the facilities, thereby reducing electricity consumption.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is improper design of data centers. The designing of a data center is an important criterion as it can affect the proper functioning of the data center's systems. The development of proper cooling solutions is essential as it is directly proportional to the performance of the data center. High power consumption of the cooling system is a major concern faced by data center operators. Several cooling systems are used in a single data center environment, for instance, row-/rack-based cooling and room cooling. High-density servers require an efficient cooling system; therefore, any fault in the cooling process can negatively affect the air flow in the data center. This can have adverse consequences because the continuous circulation of hot air inside the data center can damage IT equipment.
