Water-cooled brine chillers segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

In 2022, the water-cooled brine segment held the largest share of the chillers market. This segment is expected to maintain its position due to its high efficiency and superior cooling capacity, making it ideal for use in industrial settings, HVAC systems, and large commercial establishments. Its popularity is also increasing due to its ability to operate continuously and handle larger cooling loads.

The air-cooled brine chillers segment is expected to experience the fastest growth rate during the study period. This is mainly due to its installation in locations where water availability or cost is a major issue and its use in smaller business applications, domestic settings, and facilities with limited water demand. These chillers also offer greater installation flexibility than water-cooled systems, as they do not require a constant water supply or access to cooling towers, leading to widespread use in various applications and locations. Additionally, industries with space constraints or limitations on water usage find the flexibility of these chillers appealing.

Industrial brine chillers segment held the significant market share in 2022

The industrial brine chillers segment held the maximum market share in terms of revenue in 2022, which is mainly driven by a high need to necessitate precise temperature control very frequently coupled with the rapid expansion across several industrial sectors such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and beverages among others, which in turn, the demand for brine chillers increases to maintain optimal temperature conditions for various processes, storage, and transportation of products.

The commercial brine chillers segment is likely to grow substantially over the coming years, mainly due to the growing need for reliable cooling solutions among the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries to maintain the specific temperature ranges for storage of medications, vaccines, blood banks, and laboratory equipment. Brine chillers are widely used in these applications to ensure precise and stable temperature control, which is crucial for preserving the efficacy of drugs and medical supplies, thereby propelling the growth of the segment market.

Food & beverage segment is expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period

The food & beverage segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the projected period due to its importance in maintaining precise temperature control in various food and beverage processes and helping preserve perishable food items by keeping temperatures low, preventing bacterial growth, and minimizing spoilage.

The significant expansion of global trade and the rise of e-commerce across both developed & developing economies have fueled the demand for reliable cold chain logistics. As brine chillers are becoming essential for maintaining the desired temperature while transporting and storing food and beverage products while ensuring freshness and quality from production to consumption, this further pushes the market forward.

Asia Pacific region dominated the global market in 2022

The Asia Pacific region dominated the global market with considerable market revenue share in 2022 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The regional market growth can be highly accelerated to robust growth in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration sector, as these chillers are an integral part of HVACR systems and find various applications in commercial buildings, hospitals, hotels, and residential complexes.

Several countries across the APAC region, such as China, India, South Korea, and Indonesia, are investing heavily in infrastructure development, including transportation, power generation, and data centers, in which the chillers are essential for cooling critical infrastructure components like data centers, power plants, and airports among others, thereby driving the demand and growth of product at a rapid pace.

The North American region is anticipated to gain a steady growth rate during the anticipated period, owing to significant advancements in refrigeration technology that have led to the development of more efficient and environment-friendly brine chillers. Additionally, increasing industries' focus on process optimization and cost reduction and incorporating efficient cooling solutions helping businesses achieve cost savings by reducing energy consumption and minimizing downtime, contributes to regional market growth.
