The global data center power market size reached USD 17.6 billion in 2020.
Data Center Power Market – Growth Analysis
The data center power market witnessed significant growth with more than 400 new investment and expansion projects in 2019 that are expected to be operational by June 2020. With thousands of existing operational data centers across the globe, data center operators and vendors are continuously working to improve the efficiency of the power infrastructure being adopted to overcome market challenges. The usage of IT infrastructure has grown significantly in recent years with the incorporation of high-performance computing infrastructure across several facilities worldwide. The increasing innovations in server virtualization and the adoption of AI-based servers have fueled the demand for power and cooling infrastructure. On average, the AI workload considerably needs more energy than the current 7 kW average per rack power density in many data centers. Some of the AI applications use more than 30 kW per rack, which has resulted in the growth of rack power density. This, in turn, has led to the installation of redundant infrastructure that will fuel market growth in the coming years.
Key Highlights Offered in the Report:
- In data center power market, COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the supply chain and affected sales of many infrastructure providers in Q1 2020 and it is likely to continue till Q2 2020.
- Natron Energy’s Prussian Blue Sodium-ion battery can emerge as a possible substitute for OPEX-intensive VRLA and CAPEX-high lithium-ion batteries in the data center industry.
- The US market continues to dominate with around 50 data center facilities being developed with power capacity of over 15 MW.
- Western Europe contribution has increased with over 100 data center projects, where Germany contributes to over 20% of installed capacity.
- Greater than 2 MW generator contributes to over 50% of the overall data center generator investments in the market.
Data Center Power Market – Impact of Use of Fuel Cells
Fuel cells enable data center operators to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and improve operating efficiency. Bloom Energy is a major provider of fuel cells; it has installed fuel cells in data centers across the US. Many major data center operators are using fuel cells for their data centers. Apple has installed 10 MW of fuel cells coupled with solar panels to power its North Carolina, US, data center. eBay’s data center is equipped around 10 MW of fuel cells powering its Utah, US, data center. CenturyLink powers its Irvine, California, data center with a 500-kW fuel cell system. Fuel cells can replace significant power infrastructure such as UPS systems, generators, switchgear, and electricity feeds from traditional grids. Overall, data center operators are expected to adopt fuel cells in countries where the price of electricity exceeds $0.10 per kWh. Modular and edge data centers can also witness the use of fuel cells. It is possible to replace fuel cells with a containerized data center tailored to power 250 kW of IT infrastructure, including UPS systems and power backup generators. The adoption of fuel cells in data centers is very low compared to data centers that are being built with traditional power systems. However, during the forecast period, it is expected to increase and contribute significantly to the market growth.
