Global Chillers Industry Opportunity Outlook 2021-2026 - Emerging Opportunities for Manufacturers to Produce Eco-Friendly Chillers

·4-min read

Dublin, Nov. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Chillers Market by Type (Screw, Scroll, Centrifugal, Absorption, Reciprocating), End-use industry (Plastic, Chemical & Petrochemical, Rubber, Food & Beverage, Medical & Pharmaceutical), and Region - Forecast to 2022" report has been added to's offering.

The global chillers market is estimated to be USD 4.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 4.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 3%.

This growth is attributed to the advantages and benefits of chillers. Also, the demand for chillers is driven by growth in the number of construction projects. However, the high initial setup cost is hindering the growth of the chillers market. In addition, the regulations penetrating to fluorinated greenhouse gases is expected to be a major challenge for chillers market during the forecast period.

The chemical & petrochemical segment accounted for the largest market share

Typical applications of chillers in the chemical industry include cooling of acids and caustic solutions; cooling of extremely viscous products; condensation and tempering of solvents; cooling of water circuits, steam, and multiple material mixtures, and condensation of exhaust vapors. Whereas, chillers are widely used in petrochemicals applications such as production of plastics, alcohol, olefins, aromatics, detergents, and varnishes.

The thermal effectiveness of energy-intensive processes is crucial to the petrochemicals industry; therefore, highly energy efficient chillers are used in applications such as condensing, cooling, and evaporation. Thus, the demand for chillers in chemicals & petrochemicals end-use industry is projected to grow during the forecast period.

APAC is the largest and fastest-growing chillers market

In 2020, APAC was estimated to account for the largest share of the chillers market, owing to the rapid increase in infrastructural projects, growing population, and expanding urban cities. China accounted for the largest share of the APAC market, owing to the presence of HVAC industries and rapid growth in the end-use industries by transforming suburban cities into urban cities. Moreover, in the past few years APAC countries registered an annual growth of more than 17% year-on-year. This scenario in the region is favorable for the growth of the chillers market during the forecast period.

Chillers market growth slowed down in 2020

The chillers market in 2020 experienced slow growth in terms of volume, compared to 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The chemicals & petrochemicals industry is a significant consumer of chillers. The effect of COVID-19 on the chemicals industry led to declining sales and the layoff of employees. The projects were halted due to disruption in the supply chain. With the declining production, the demand for chillers also decreased.
