Precision air conditioning market to increase at a CAGR of 11.9%

Press Release   •   Aug 27, 2013 12:00 BST

The precision air conditioning market has been forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% through 2016, driven by the increasing data centre heat density, and the emergence of spot cooling equipment.

Precision air-conditioning systems regulate temperature and humidity for sensitive technology precisely to the last degree. In data centres and mobile phone network exchanges, their cost-efficient, continuous operation reliably ensures the high availability of computer systems.

If required, all units can be equipped with interfaces for connection to building services management systems from known manufacturers. This enables central monitoring and control at all times.

Spot coolers are self-contained equipment which includes coolant, condensers, compressor, and cooling fans as a single unit. Spot cooling equipment is used in places where there is a need for cooling the environment and reducing the temperature.

The cooling system absorbs the hot air from the surroundings and passes it through the cooling pads which are cooled using the coolant running through them. The air is then re-circulated to the data centre environment, which in turn reduces the temperature in the environment.

Spot cooling equipment have a major benefit as they are portable. Hence, data centre service providers and enterprises are increasing their adoption of spot cooling equipment and incorporating them as part of the data centre facility, thus aiding precision air conditioning solutions.

One of the major challenges is the need for high levels of capital investment for the adoption of precision air conditioning cooling solutions. There is a need for incorporating temperature sensors and redesigning the data centre facility so as to be compatible with precision air conditioning, and this involves huge capital investment.

Key players currently dominating the precision air conditioning market include Emerson Network Power Inc., Rittal Corp., Schneider Electric SA, and Stulz ATS Inc.
