Data center liquid cooling is a method for dispersing heat from IT equipment by using liquids instead of air. It's advantageous over air cooling because liquids can absorb and carry away more heat with their superior thermal conductivity and capacity. This allows for tighter packing of servers in a data center, leading to increased efficiency and performance. Data center liquid cooling offers a trifecta of benefits.  Removing heat more efficiently allows for lower operating temperatures and significantly reduces the energy needed for cooling systems. This translates to cost savings as data center real estate is expensive, but liquid cooling allows for denser server packing, maximizing space utilization.  The final perk is environmental – the lower energy consumption of liquid cooling systems translates to a smaller carbon footprint, making data centers more sustainable. 

Data centers housing high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, artificial intelligence (AI) systems, and blockchain technology generate tremendous heat. Liquid cooling efficiently removes this heat, enabling these systems to operate at peak performance without thermal throttling. Large data centers with massive server farms benefit significantly from liquid cooling's ability to pack more servers into a smaller space. This translates to increased efficiency and cost savings on data center real estate. Data centers with a strong focus on environmental responsibility can leverage liquid cooling's lower energy consumption to achieve significant reductions in their carbon footprint.

Market Dynamics:



Liquid cooling has emerged as the most effective solution for modern data centers, driven by several key factors. One major driver is the need to maintain high-powered central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and network switches within their thermal specifications. Coolant distribution units (CDUs) provide enhanced cooling capacity to liquid cooling loops and cold plates, which directly interface with heat sources, offering increased efficiency and greater flexibility compared to traditional air-cooling methods. The rise in artificial intelligence workloads is straining traditional air-cooling systems, pushing them to their limits.


In response, both chipmakers and data center operators are turning to liquid cooling for its superior efficiency. Leading this transition is data center operator Equinix, which plans to deploy liquid cooling in 100 of its data centers across 45 cities. Similarly, Digital Realty has introduced a high-density colocation offering that leverages liquid cooling to manage workloads of up to 70 kilowatts (kW) per rack. These developments underscore the growing importance of liquid cooling in meeting the demands of modern data centers.



There is a risk of liquid leaks, which can potentially damage electronic components. However, modern systems are designed to minimize this risk. Maintaining liquid cooling systems can be more complex and requires specialized knowledge and equipment.


Regional Trends:

North America dominates the data center liquid cooling market. Data center operators in the region are often more willing to invest in innovative cooling solutions like liquid immersion cooling, which can offer significant benefits over traditional air cooling. The United States and Canada boast a large number of hyperscale data centers – massive facilities operated by major tech companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft. These facilities require efficient cooling solutions to handle the tremendous amount of heat generated by their servers. Liquid cooling is a perfect fit for these high-density environments. The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing rapid growth in the Data Center Liquid Cooling market. Due adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and big data analytics. These applications require high-performance computing capabilities, resulting in denser data center infrastructures that require more effective cooling solutions to manage heat dissipation.


Recent Developments:

  • In March 2024, Gates announced its partnership and foray into the rapidly expanding and changing data center cooling industry alongside CoolIT Systems. CoolIT is partnering with Gates to create the most dependable and efficient liquid cooling systems on the market in order to address the rapidly increasing demand in the AI, HPC, and enterprise markets. In order to support the anticipated expansion in the industry, the agreement entails the development of cutting-edge solutions and tightens the supply chain between Gates' robust operations in North America and CoolIT's manufacturing hub in Calgary, Canada.
  • In January 2024, Chilldyne announced that it had been granted a $550,000 grant by the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) of the Department of Energy. In order to meet the growing needs of contemporary data centers, Chilldyne's high-performance liquid cooling systems are being developed further with the help of this award, which is a component of the COOLERCHIPS funding initiative.
  • In August 2023, Boyd's liquid technology will provide high-performance data centers and AI computers with a lot of power. When it comes to cooling AI power requirements sustainably, current extreme air-cooled methods confront difficulties. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that 33–40% of data center energy demand is currently attributed to cooling. The energy need for cooling systems is compounded by next-generation computing power.
