According to BSRIA, Taiwan chiller market scale reached US$ 113.1 million in 2015, a 4.2% decrease from US$ 118.0 million in 2014. Scroll chillers serve a similar cooling capacity range as VRF systems and have been losing market share to VRF, especially in the 50?100 RT range.
Rising demand from the rapidly developing semiconductor industry has boosted growth in the Taiwanese chiller market. Some local Taiwanese manufacturers have started to develop and produce centrifugal compressors and sell them to main-land China. The Big Three U.S. manufacturers export centrifugal chillers from the United States to Taiwan.
Kuenling, Teco, Tatung, Super Air Condition, and JCI-Hitachi are major manufacturers in the market. The centrifugal chiller market is led by Trane, and its products are mainly used in the electronics industry.
