Airflow Management Market Outlook – 2030

Airflow management is an approach used in isolating hot and cold air and maintaining the proper cooling temperature for various pieces of equipment of data centers. The creation of massive amounts of data resulted in the expansion of data centers all over the world. However, data center owners confront a challenge in that they want an effective cooling solution as the current system does not provide appropriate temperature at the IT equipment inlets. The data centers require sophisticated airflow management in addition to the cooling system.

To achieve proper thermal management, an airflow management system contains hardware such as grommets, blanking panels, containment, grills, and other components. The airflow management system can use a technique of aligning the cabinets in parallel rows and segregating the cold and hot air streams at the entrance. As the cold air recirculates through the data center equipment, the airflow management works efficiently to limit the risk of IT system failure, energy loss, lower efficiency, and rising expenses. All these factors are assisting the growth of airflow management market share globally.

The global airflow management market is segmented on the basis of offering, cooling system, data center, industry vertical, and region. Based on offering, the market is bifurcated into component and services. The component segment is further sub-segmented into blanking panels, grommets, containment, and air-filled kits, air diverters, containment, high-flow doors, and others. The services segment is also further sub-segmented into consulting, maintenance & support, and installation & deployment.

In terms of cooling system, the market is bifurcated into chilled water, and direct expansion. On the basis of data center, the market is divided into enterprise and hyperscale. By industry vertical, the market is segregated into IT & telecom, research & academic, government & defense, banking, financial services, & insurance, retail, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global airflow management industry include Kingspan Group, Triad Floors, Data Clean Corporation, Halton Group, Subzero Engineering, USystems, EDP Europe, Schneider Electric, Polargy Inc., and Eaton Corporation. These companies have adopted several strategies such as product launches, partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures to strengthen their foothold in the global market.

Top Impacting Factors

The rapid increase in demand for cloud-based solutions, which has led to an increase in the number of data center solutions globally, is one of the primary factors for the global airflow management market growth. The expansion of the airflow management industry is aided by the increasing need for data center chains that use effective cooling techniques.

Additionally, airflow management helps in the thermal management and cooling efficiency of data centers, which is likely to drive the global airflow management market growth during the forecast period. High cost and high maintenance of these airflow management systems are considered to be the restraining factors of the airflow management market opportunity.

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

In July 2020, STULZ, a leading solution provider of energy efficient temperature and humidity management technology, has introduced a new type of temperature and humidity management system that is specifically built for managing air and cooling for big, colocation, and hyperscale data centers. Multiple air conditioning units make up the CyberWall cooling technology, which was designed for institutions with distinct aisles.

Heat generation within different racks, according to the business, is only becoming worse with each new generation of data center equipment, that is both sensitive and must work within a specific temperature range. STULZ built its solution around high-performance fan walls that feature electronically commutated (EC) fans with built-in air/water heat exchangers. This permits the efficient air conditioning of high-power densities as well as racks of 42U or more, with a cooling capacity of roughly 100kW per meter of wall length.

Surge in Usage in Data Centers

Depending on the size of the company, the IT sector requires on-premise private data storage facilities and hyperscale data centers for its operations. Additionally, due to the expansion of SaaS providers, cloud storage adoption has expanded over time, allowing cloud storage providers to expand their capabilities and increasing demand for data center cooling systems.

Since mainframe computers ruled the IT world, heating and cooling have been a challenge. The problem is getting worse as more enterprises migrate their computational capacity from PCs to local server racks and data center-based clouds with tens of thousands of servers. Eventually, it increases the use of airflow management in practice. As the cold air recirculates through the data center equipment, the airflow management works efficiently to limit the risk of IT system failure, energy loss, lower efficiency, and rising expenses.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the growth of several sectors, including automobiles, oil and gas, and others. The constant rise in the number of virus-infected people has prompted governments to impose restrictions on people and commercial traffic. Manufacturing and construction sectors, school, educational institutions, retail malls, and office buildings have all had their operations temporarily halted, resulting in decreased air pollution.

The lockdown restrictions had a significant impact on the manufacturing of airflow management system, as it has shut down production and factory activities. It all started in China, which is the worldwide hub for the delivery of raw materials to global firms, and then it expanded across the manufacturing supply chain as a result of the local government's recommendations for lockdown, social distancing, and anti-coronavirus measures. All these factors are hampering the growth of airflow management market size globally.
