Cold Thermal Energy Storage Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Cold Thermal Energy Storage Market grew at a CAGR of 10.4% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 210.5Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.4% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 740.3Mn by 2032 end.

Global demand for these systems is driven by remarkable advancements in energy storage technology and the decreasing environmental effect of using these systems. By heating or cooling a storage medium known as phase transition material, these devices accumulate thermal energy (PCM). Better reliability, greater overall efficiency, and lower investment and operating costs are all provided by the capacity to utilize the stored power for heating and cooling purposes at a later time.

In the upcoming years, technological adoption will be boosted by the transition towards sustainable solutions, which is being hastened by the adverse environmental effects brought on by the depletion of fossil fuel resources.

Market Dynamic


A move away from fossil fuels is made possible by cold thermal energy storage, which reduces primary energy use by about 30 to 50 percent. The installation of such systems drastically reduces the consumption of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions, which may eventually assist in reducing the threat of rising pollution. Around the world, between 16 and 50 percent of electricity is consumed by air conditioning (AC) systems, particularly in hot, muggy nations close to the equator.

The use of electricity during peak demand can be decreased thanks to cold thermal energy storage technology, which is more effective than conventional decentralized air conditioning systems and uses less power. As a result, rising investments in these technologies will advance the market in the years to come.


Systems for storing cold thermal energy are appropriate for use in large commercial buildings, including offices, hospitals, and schools. Since it is difficult to overcome the scale of high economics, they are not practical for smaller capacities, especially residential buildings. Installation of heating and cooling systems for centralized cooling systems necessitates large initial investments, which is only made possible by government aid and local channel compliance.

Another important market restraint is the lack of knowledge regarding cold TES technology, its applications, and its advantages, including cost reduction. In addition to these constraints, a lack of integrated infrastructure and land-use planning may also, to some extent, limit the use of technology. Inadequate project execution skills and understanding, as well as a lack of a recognized methodology for energy-saving and environmental benefits, are also significant hurdles affecting the growth of the cold thermal energy storage market.


With the help of these kinds of devices, a significant percentage of daytime peak electricity has been diverted to off-peak hours throughout the world over the past few decades. Energy storage technology has seen notable technological advancements, which have had a significant and noticeable impact on people’s lives. Compared to conventional non-storage energy-producing methods, cold thermal energy storage systems can produce cooling with a substantial reduction in energy input.

These systems are cost-effective in areas where utilities charge higher rates for power use during the day or on-peak hours and lower prices for off-peak hours during the night.
