Wort chillers are used to cool the hot wort down to room temperature. They are important equipment in the brewing process. It is important that the wort temperature comes to yeast-pitching temperature because pitching yeast too warm or too cold might adversely affect fermentation. Wort chillers helps minimize the possibility of contagion by spoilage entities that thrive in hot temperatures. There are mainly two types of chillers: immersion chillers and plater and counter flow chillers. Immersion chillers are prepared from coiled copper tubing. Cold water is run through the coils to cool the wort. Counter flow chillers are a tube-like structure. Hot wort runs through the inner tube, whereas cold water flows in the opposite direction from the outer tube.
The wort chiller market is expected to expand at a considerable pace during the forecast period. Various reasons for the growth of the wort chiller market include rise in disposable income, changing lifestyles of individuals, and rapid technological advancement in wort chillers. These factors are expected to accelerate the global wort chiller market during the forecast period. Manufacturers of wort chillers focus on innovation and energy-efficient features. Other factors that are expected to accelerate the hot tub market is multi-functionality hot tubs. Availability of a wide range of energy efficient and cost effective wort chillers is expected to be a key factor in driving the wort chiller market. In addition, rapid urbanization is expected to drive the global wort chiller market over the forecast period. High cost of wort chillers might prove to be a restraint for the cooling device market. Nevertheless, development of distribution channels and increased penetration of wort chillers are anticipated to offer attractive growth opportunities to the market in the coming years.
The global wort chiller market can be classified based on product, material, end-user, distribution channel, and geography. Based on product, the market can be segmented into immersion chillers, counter flow chillers, and plate chillers. Unlike other chillers, immersion wort chillers do not require a pump to feed them. They also do not need hoses and clamps. In terms of material, the market can be classified into copper and stainless steel. As compared to stainless steel, copper is more commonly used in wort chillers among end user. Based on end-user, the market can be segmented into residential and commercial.
