Process Chillers Market : Global Share, Size, Growth, Trends & Outlook ( 2022 – 2032 )

Process chillers are equipment's that are used in the maintenance of industrial applications and equipment's. They are required to maintain efficiency and are to ensure optimal performance of the equipment's and processes. They ensure that the process or equipment remains at a constant temperature throughout the day by removing heat from the process and transporting the unwanted heat from a location that is not wanted to another more appropriate location.

Process chillers comprise of different components depending on the design such as compressors, condensers, evaporators, pumps, pipes, high pressure refrigerant relief valves & cooling towers, tanks, filters, and fans. Process chillers use either an air or water condenser in their cooling process. A partially cooled liquid refrigerant performs the cooling process such as halocarbon or ammonia.

As such, they are preferred and widely accepted due to their high energy efficient properties. With this, the consumption of chillers has grown significantly in recent times and the global market is anticipated to grow at a healthy CAGR over the coming years.


The growth of this market is anticipated towards major relying factors including the increase in cooling process applications, growing industrialization, growing concern over energy efficiency, growing use of environment friendly products, progress in the manufacturing industries,  the increasing trend towards frozen foods , developments of new products, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships among players in the process chillers market etc.

Moreover, the global chillers market has been witnessing many developments over the past few years which have also resulted in the increasing use of chillers in solar cooling applications. These are further scaling the market for chillers, globally.

Furthermore, factors such as excellent cooling efficiency, low power consumption, and longer lifespan are inducing hospitals, large retails, offices, and theatres in commercial sector to use chillers. Additionally, plastic, baking, foods, pharmaceutical, and printing industries which are growing radically are the major industrial consumers that use chillers for various processes. These along with rising awareness also drive the process chillers market to grow.

However, increasing raw material prices, increasing competition and rising concerns regarding the efficacy of the machines are factors that restrain the global process chillers market.

In September 2020, Engine Refrigeration added a heat recovery option to its Quantum range of air-cooled chillers which was said to enable up to 100% of the waste heat generated during the cold generation process to be re-used. To achieve this, the Quantum Air chiller incorporates an additional heat exchanger. This makes it possible to conduct the heat generated during the cold generation process to a defined heat process – such as production hall heating or warm water supply in offices.

In October 2020, German manufacturer Efficient Energy introduced a new chiller with a 120kW (34.1TR) cooling capacity suitable for industrial cooling and using only water (R718) as refrigerant. The new eChiller120 was said to be up to 82% more energy efficient than conventional chiller systems.
