Industrial Cooling: Technologies and Global Markets

Industrial Cooling: Technologies and Global Markets

The global market for industrial cooling technologies in 2013 was worth $7.4 billion and nearly $7.9 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7% between 2014 and 2019. This will result in $11 billion global market in 2019.

This report provides:

A synopsis of the worldwide market for technologies used to provide cooling for industrial processes.

Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, 2013 and 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.

An overview of the various industrial cooling technologies available, their application, and a background section describing the importance of cooling technologies to various industrial processes.

A high level review of industrial activity on a regional basis with emphasis on North America, Europe, and Asia.

Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the field.


SCOPE OF REPORT AND METHODOLOGY

The scope of this investigation includes major industrial cooling system categories that are being installed across all scales and facets of industrial production. The report covers cooling technologies that are applicable to small-scale and minor auxiliary waste heat loads, up to very large waste heat loads associated with large-scale electricity production. Industrial cooling technologies are used to reject waste heat across a wide array of manufacturing processes, raw materials production, chemicals production, refining, electricity production, food production and an array of other processes around the globe. Specific technology categories considered in this report comprise four separate industrial cooling system categories: once-through cooling, evaporative cooling systems, hybrid cooling systems, and dry cooling systems.
