District Cooling Market 2022 Industry Research, Segmentation, Key Players Analysis and Forecast to 2032

With an estimated CAGR of 3% during the projected period, the district cooling market share is expected to reach US$ 1.28 billion by 2032, finds a recent report published by FMI. The study finds that the rising demand for energy-efficient cooling technology proportionately reflects on the adoption of district cooling.

The adoption of district cooling systems around the world has stemmed from rapidly rising temperatures and the proven viability of district cooling plants over time. However, the study finds that the district cooling market in the Asia Pacific has shown impressive growth. With an increasing awareness of the need for energy conservation, a District Cooling Plant concept has acquired even more traction.

The sales of district cooling are likely to rise as the need for energy-efficient technologies rises to meet the ongoing construction boom.

Continued deployment of viable and sustainable cooling systems to accomplish energy-saving targets and increased production of sustainable building solutions is anticipated to support the district cooling industry.

Furthermore, the growing use of renewable technology, combined with strict regulatory requirements to reduce pollution, would spur the district cooling market growth. Furthermore, severe climate circumstances would encourage district cooling due to rising surface temperature levels in the Middle East, Central Europe, and South Asian nations. Furthermore, over the forecasted period, total demand is increasing.

Key Takeaways:

  • During the projection period, the electric chillers market is predicted to be the largest segment in the district cooling market by production technology.
  • During the forecast period, the commercial segment is likely to be the leading proportion in the sales of the district cooling market by application. The expansion of the commercial segment of the district cooling market is predicted to be fuelled by the development of new infrastructure in Middle Eastern countries and the growing requirement for businesses to decrease their carbon footprint.
  • Asia’s major markets include Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, China, and South Korea. The Indian government has outlined ambitious projects like Smart Cities and Smart Grid, which are anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.
  • Attributed to the increasingly affluent population and increased construction activity, the Middle East and Africa are likely to dominate most of the district cooling market opportunities, particularly in nations like the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
