Industrial Air Chiller Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

The use of R32 refrigerants is currently one of the key developments in the chiller business. R32 transports heat more efficiently than R22 and reduces the chiller's electricity use by a significant amount. R32, like R410A and R22, has a far lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) than those refrigerants. Furthermore, because R32 has a higher chilling capacity than many other refrigerants, chillers that use it require less pipe, resulting in higher operational efficiency. R32's use in chillers is increasing as a result of its energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. With an increasing number of technological advancements in these air chillers, the adoption of these chillers is estimated to surge in the coming years. This factor would aid in increasing the growth of the industrial air chiller market.

In the mid-to-large-sized commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities, chilled water is utilized to cool and dehumidify the air. Liquid-cooled via cooling towers evaporative cooled, and air-cooled chillers are all options. Water or liquid-cooled chillers can outperform air-cooled systems in terms of efficiency and environmental effect.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

In the first three quarters of 2020, end-use sectors such as chemicals and petrochemicals, printing, and laser cutting saw a decrease in production. The chillers' output was further impacted by a drop in the demand from end-use industries. The novel coronavirus was rapidly spreading throughout several countries and regions, wreaking havoc on people's lives and the community as a whole. It began as a human health issue and evolved into a major threat to global trade, economics, and finance. Lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has halted the manufacture of numerous components of industrial air chillers. Industrial and commercial users first cut their expenditure on various industrial air chillers as a result of the economic slump. The intensity of the COVID-19 pandemic has, however, been greatly decreased as a result of the advent of several vaccines. The number of COVID-19 instances has dramatically decreased as of mid-2022.

Market Growth Factors

Growing demand for process cooling in industrial applications

With the rapid adoption of several technologies by people and industrial applications all over the world, the demand for industrial air chillers is rapidly expanding all over the world. One of the major factors that are aiding in the surging demand is the increasing disposable income of people across the world. Rising per capita income has improved people's living standards, leading to increased demand for leisure and comfort products like air conditioners and refrigerators. Another driving force for the chilling equipment market is the rising food and healthcare industries. As a result, the demand for refrigeration has increased significantly, which boosts the market for chillers.

Enhanced water conservations

The availability of water, the cost of treatment, and the potential for additional building and construction complexity all play an important role in system selection. Because air-cooled chillers do not require water, they are frequently preferred by consumers, especially in areas where water is scarce or prohibitively expensive. One of the two key resources consumed by data centers is water. In recent years, data centers all over the world are consuming significant volumes of water, which includes water consumed directly at data center sites as well as water used to produce electricity that powered them. As a result, the advantages of an air-cooled chiller include fewer maintenance costs, a preconfigured system for quicker design and installation, and higher performance in cold temperatures.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Rigorous government regulations and guidelines for environment conservation

The regulations and guidelines that are imposed on the utilization of industrial chillers are an important consideration when selecting a chiller system. For example, water-cooled chillers are prohibited or limited in several countries due to the fact that it releases water waste into other water bodies, which can be significantly harmful to the environment. Operators would incur greater expenditures if wastewater from accessible water-cooled chillers is treated before being released into natural water bodies.
