The cooling towers are the basic need in any industry to let out the excess heat in the system. The cooling towers are basically the heat exchanging devices which reject the waste heat to the atmosphere by cooling the hot water stream to a lower temperature using the airflow in the cooling towers.

Depending on the design of the cooling towers, the cooling is carried out by direct or indirect contact between air and water. The main advantage of installing a cooling tower in the industry is that the cooling towers reduce the cooling water requirement which is required to maintain the efficient working of the industry and its equipment’s.

The capacity of the cooling towers varies according to the demand, and the cooling towers are available to be constructed in various range of capacities. The Field erected cooling towers are the towers built on-site for cooling the system to maintain the temperature of the system in a specific range and avoid any misconducts in the system.

The field-erected cooling towers are large in size, and sometimes the equipment’s for the towers are manufactured in industry and assembled at the required site. The major application of the cooling towers is in the power generation, oil and gas, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and manufacturing industries sector.

There has been an increase in the new industries being set up like petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, and food processing plants, and other manufacturing industries all over the world, which mandatorily require a cooling tower to be installed. This factor will boost the global field cooling towers market growth in the forthcoming year.

The increasing demand for energy and the rising number of air conditioner installations are the factors which will drive the growth of the global field-erected cooling towers market size in the given forecast period.

Market Segmentation

"Induced Draft Segment to Dominate the Market Share by Cooling Tower Design"

The industrial activities have been on the rise in many countries around the world, as countries are focusing on increasing power generation to satisfy the increasing demands. The various types of cooling towers are available to be used for the cooling purpose which includes natural draft, forced draft, and induced draft. The advantages provided by the induced draft design of the cooling towers include higher efficiency and low energy consumption.

These are the major factors which will see the induced draft segment dominate the global field-erected cooling towers market share in the given forecast period. The Natural draft cooling towers do not use any external source for circulation of air within the cooling towers. The forced draft and the induced draft cooling towers have a fan which is being electrically driven for the movement of air within the cooling towers. The difference in forced draft cooling towers and the induced draft cooling towers is the location of the fan which drives the airflow in the cooling towers. In the forced draft the fan is situated at the bottom of the cooling towers.

The induced draft cooling towers have fan placed at the top of the cooling tower creating a low-pressure area and therefore forcing the atmospheric air which enters the cooling towers from the bottom to flow in the upward direction. Another main advantage of the induced draft is that the exiting velocities of air from the cooling towers are high which ensure there would be no recirculation of air as it can take place in the natural draft and the forced draft cooling towers.

The hot water from the industrial processes and equipment’s is sprayed from the top of the cooling tower over a fill media by the nozzles which spread the hot water over the area of fill media. The fill media slows down the flow speed of the water and exposes maximum possible water surface area to the air, which is moving in the upward direction as it is being drawn by the fan placed upwards. The fill media ensures maximum air-water contact. During the process of contact between the air and water, some amount of water gets evaporated, and the rest of the water is cooled. The cooled water is collected at the cooling basin of the cooling tower and recirculated in the system again.

"Wet Type Cooling Towers to Hold the Largest Market Share"

The cooling towers are available in mainly two types which are wet cooling towers and dry cooling towers. The wet cooling towers, also known as evaporative cooling towers will dominate the global field cooling towers market size in every region mainly due to the higher efficiency offered as compared to the dry cooling towers.

he wet cooling towards work on the principle of evaporative cooling which ensures direct contact between the air which is flowing through the cooling tower and the hot water coming in which needs to be cooled. The water which is cooled by the wet cooling tower is collected at the bottom of the cooling tower in the collection basin and again used for capturing the heat from the industrial equipment and the industrial processes. The difference in the efficiency of operation between the dry and wet cooling towers is very high, and therefore, many players operating in the field-erected cooling towers market industry look up to wet cooling towers as their main product.
