Thermal management refers to the tools and techniques used to keep a system within its operating temperature. In electronic devices, thermal management usually dissipates excess heat to prevent overheating. Most electronic systems generate heat due to which sensitive internal components can be damaged in case excess thermal energy builds up inside the electronic device. Similarly, electronics can be damaged by excessive exposure to high temperatures in the outdoor environment.

Engineers use thermal management solutions in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, batteries, data centers, and others. Temperature control can be a complex and critical aspect of any design. Engineers carefully consider the unique characteristics of each system to optimize the efficiency, durability, and longevity of its application. Rising demand of thermal systems across vehicles, aircrafts, consumer electronics, and medical equipment will catalyze the market growth during forecast period.

Global markets experienced little impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to total or partial lockdowns in many countries around the world, aviation and defense services were classified as non-essential and closed. This caused production disruptions and reduced sales in the defense and aerospace sectors. This had a negative impact on the growth of the global thermos systems market during the COVID-19 pandemic period.

Thermal Management System Market Trends

Hybrid Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding and Thermal Management to Drive Market Development

Several industries are shifting towards higher frequency applications for navigation. Two main examples of this are 5G telecommunications for higher datax` rates and automotive radar for higher resolution detection. At higher frequencies, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding with traditional methods becomes more difficult. Combining EMI shielding and thermal management effectiveness in a material becomes an attractive proposition.

5G deployment is well underway, but infrastructure for the highest frequency wave (>24 GHz) is still in its infancy. Most of the 5G infrastructure in 2022 is still in lower frequency bands; below 6 GHz. Moreover, car radar is also one of the main components of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and a necessary technology for future autonomous vehicles. Early automotive radar units mostly used the 24 GHz frequency. Since then, the market has mostly moved beyond 77 GHz.

The compact nature of the higher signal device presents challenges for both thermal management and EMI shielding. Several companies have come up with new thermal interference solutions that also have EMI protection. Many players, such as Henkel, Kitagawa, and Schlegel have released thermal interference pads that also act as EMI shields. Such developments will guide the market’s growth during the forecast period.

Thermal Management System Market Growth Factors

Growing Demand of Electric Vehicles in Commercial Sector Boost the Growth of the Market

Electric vehicle (EV) demand has been on the rise due to the need to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and support sustainable transportation solutions. As EV sales have increased, so has the demand for EV Thermal Systems. The Thermal system maintains the operating temperatures of the battery, the motor, and various sensitive electronic components.

Good thermal management is important to improve vehicle performance, extend battery life, and ensure the safety and reliability of an electric vehicle. Battery technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and batteries have higher densities and faster charging speeds. This has increased the demand for advanced heating systems.

For instance, in February 2022, Borgwarner Inc. has been awarded a contract to supply a high-voltage coolant heater (HVCH) for use in BMW Group's all-electric iX and i4 architectures. The solution controls the heating of the thermal system and battery cabin, which significantly increases the range and reliability of the battery.

Growing Demand of Consumer Electronics Boost the Market Growth

All electronic components, from microprocessors to advanced power converters, generate heat, and dissipating that heat is essential for their optimal and reliable operation. As electronic design enables higher efficiency in smaller packages, thermal load distribution becomes a critical design factor. Many of today's electronic devices require more cooling than conventional metal heatsinks. A heat pipe is a compact and efficient heat management tool for such applications. For smaller devices where space is a major constraint, passive heat removal methods through heat pipes are essential for operational efficiency of the system.

According to UNCTAD, sale of consumer electronics and technology products will grow in coming years especially in the Asia Pacific market backed by reduction in inflation, value seeking consumers and markets across India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and other Southeast Asian countries.

  • In June 2023, DuPont and JetCool Technologies Inc. (JetCool) has announced a collaboration to increase adoption of advanced liquid cooling technologsy that enables thermal management of semiconductors, data centers and other high-performance computing applications. DuPont and JetCool jointly introduced a new sales channel bringing JetCool's advanced cooling solutions to semiconductor companies in Taiwan and Singapore.


High Development and Power Cost of Thermal Management System to Hamper Market Growth

The use of copper increases the cost of the system, which hikes the total cost of the product and negatively affects the growth of the market. The increasing complexity of electronics and other devices makes it difficult to integrate a thermal management system into such devices, which increases costs.

The need for efficient data centers has increased as the world continues to have a more prominent virtual presence. As the energy density increases, enhanced infrastructure is needed to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. The cooling system is one of the most expensive parts of a data center. These components increase cooling costs in data centers. According to our research, 30-55% of a data center's energy consumption goes to power cooling and ventilation systems. Hence, data centers require high initial cost and face high operational cost during its work life. Such factors hamper the growth of the market.
