According to earlier market survey reports, the net worth of the total cooling tower rentals subscribed in the year 2018 was $610 million. In the following years, it progressed moderately before witnessing a steep rise during the years 2021 and 2022 during the post-COVID-19 pandemic period.

Trends, like the inclusion of light-emitting diode (LED) retrofits, water source heat pumps, and the supply of upgrading services can drive the market further. The advent of "smart cooling tower" technology is also another notable breakthrough, promising several other emerging trends in the cooling tower rental market.

Smart cooling tower technology provides real-time monitoring and analysis of the cooling towers' activities through the use of sensors, data analytics, and automation. Further, it may maximize the knowledge of the product's performance by gathering and evaluating data on numerous factors, like water flow, and energy usage. This new technology's automated detection function enables rapid detection of any problems or irregularities in the operation of cooling towers.

As per the FMI analysis, the demand for cooling tower services in the U.S. remains higher by virtue of a greater industrial base. Expansion of petroleum refineries and the pharmaceutical sector are expected to propel the cooling tower leasing business in the U.S. to attractive potential.
