Report : Water Cooling Tower Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Type (Cross flow, Counterflow, Forced Draft, Induced Draft, and Others) and Application (Industrial, Power Plant, and HVAC)
According to our latest market study on “Water Cooling Tower Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis – by Type and Organization Size,” the market is expected to grow from US$ 1,635.22 million in 2021 to reach US$ 2,105.05 million by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.7% from 2021 to 2028.
The growing urbanization in developing economies such as China, India, Brazil, Vietnam, and Mexico is resulting in the increased number of construction activities. This factor is fueling the demand for water cooling towers. The rising construction of industrial and commercial properties is increasing the demand for heat, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems as these systems are more suitable for commercial and industrial cooling and ventilation requirements. Cooling towers are a mandatory component of an HVAC system, which is used to remove excess heat from the building premises. HVAC systems have extensive applications in commercial properties such as shopping malls, corporate offices, hotels, retail stores, and warehouses.
The rising industrialization in developing economies is causing an increase in the construction of plants and factories of various industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, rubber and plastic, automotive, petrochemical, oil & gas, food processing, and sugar refineries. The industrial segment is considered one of the prime users of water cooling towers as these industries generate extensive heat during their operations. The growth of the various industries in developing economies can be attributed to the increasing demand for consumer goods and the rising disposable income of consumers in developing economies. Thus, the rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing economies are fueling the construction activities and subsequently proliferating the demand for water cooling towers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted and negatively impacted the operations of several industries, including industrial; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); and power plants. A sharp decline in the growth of mentioned industries due to the pandemic is limiting the water cooling tower market growth. Factory shutdowns, travel and trade bans, and border lockdowns to combat and contain the infection have impacted manufacturing, supply, and sales of water cooling tower products.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for the power from commercial and residential sectors has increased significantly, owing to the rising trend of work from home among corporates across the globe. This development has stabilized the demand for water cooling towers to some extent. However, the limited production activities and disrupted supply chain has hampered the market growth. Lowered production rate and declined sale of industrial products in first half of 2020 have negatively impacted the market growth. However, the demand for water cooling towers is expected to increase at considerable rate with the resumption of economic activities in many countries. Thus, the global water cooling tower market is projected to recover in upcoming years as many industries are dependent on it.
