Cooling Towers: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (Vocus) October 18, 2010
Cooling towers constitute essential equipment for efficient functioning of numerous large-scale applications. For industries, cooling towers are essential due to their role in eliminating heat absorbed in circulating cooling water systems. The circulating cooling water systems deal with absorbing heat from various industrial processes for providing a cooling effect. Such towers are used extensively in industries such as chemical plants, petrochemical, petroleum refineries, nuclear power plants, and natural gas processing facilities. Though the global financial crisis significantly affected the construction and building industries, cooling tower industry is one of the few sectors of the building segment to be minimally affected by the negative sentiment in the global business. Presently, the cooling towers industry relies heavily on repairs and innovations, as mandated by environmental regulations passed by different governments.
The United States and Europe dominate the global cooling towers market, as stated by the new market research report on Cooling Towers. With energy efficiency and environment-related issues emerging as key focus areas for end-users, product developments and innovations aimed at addressing these concerns are expected to help suppliers to consolidate customer base and overcome the economic adversities. Demand prospects for cooling towers are expected to be significantly affected by the growing environmental concerns. The segment faces concerns pertaining to the release of plume from evaporative cooling towers, which are known to pollute the environment and cause Legionnaires' disease. In addition, growth in the cooling tower market is likely to be constrained due to less frequent investments in end-user segments such as HVAC and power.
Modular cooling towers are anticipated to eat into the market for conventional cooling towers, as they reduce the cost of cooling tower by enabling customers to buy the product in stages and reduce the up-front costs. Currently, cooling by water through cooling towers is cheaper and thus is the preferred alternative the world over. However, regulatory restrictions on discharge of heated water into waterways and reduced availability of water are expected to drive the market towards dry cooling units. The focus on establishment of nuclear power plants in China and India is likely to boost the cooling tower market in Asia-Pacific.
Component and system suppliers dominate the market, with cooling system suppliers playing a minor role. Major players profiled in the report include SPX Corporation, Baltimore Aircoil Company, GEA AG, Liang Chi Industry Co. Ltd., Cooling Tower Depot Inc., BERG Chilling Systems, Brentwood Industries, Cofely Refrigeration GmbH, Cooling Tower Systems Inc., Delta Cooling Towers Inc., Evapco Inc, SPIG SpA, Star Cooling Towers, and Tower Tech, Inc. among others.
