HVAC Systems Market
The global HVAC Systems market was worth around USD 196.10 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 286.14 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 6.50 % over the forecast period. The report analyzes the HVAC Systems market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the HVAC Systems market.
HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) equipment is a type of indoor and vehicular comfort technology that helps to provide thermal comfort and good indoor air quality. It is a vital component in single-family homes, apartment buildings, hotels, and senior living facilities, as well as medium to large industrial and office buildings, such as skyscrapers and hospitals, vehicles, such as cars, trains, airplanes, ships, and submarines, and marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions, such as temperature and humidity, are regulated using fresh air from the outside
A rise in multi-family and single-family homes is paving the way for future development. The HVAC sector is steadily putting a greater emphasis on energy efficiency. Several OEMs are focusing on green efforts, with the goal of saving money while lowering greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, there has been a shift in recent years toward environmentally friendly HVAC devices. This includes goods that use less energy and are powered by renewable energy sources, lowering energy expenses. As a result, the usage of geothermal cooling and heating equipment has increased in recent years, reducing reliance on fuel-based equipment. The desire for comfort among customers is paving the way for expansion.
Every business was affected by the pandemic, and the HVAC industry was no exception. According to data from the Associated Builders and Contractors, nonresidential construction faced the most difficulties at the start of 2020. (ABC). The economy of the US shrank by 4.8 %in the first quarter of 2020 due to the covid 19. The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) sponsored a study in March 2020 to learn more about how HVAC professionals felt about the market's future in the aftermath of the outbreak. The majority of individuals polled (70%) thought the pandemic's medical effects would last only three months, whereas 65 % expected a long-term impact on economic viability, and 9% were concerned that their firms would not survive. Construction activities for hotels were predicted to drop by more than 20%, while those for recreational and amusement facilities would drop by 13%, offices by 11%, retail by 8%, and education by 7%.
Increasing government regulatory policies and incentives to ensure energy saving and conservation of natural resources to drive global market growth
Various governments are enacting strict regulatory standards for vendors when constructing and retrofitting energy-efficient HVAC systems. For example, starting in January 2015, the European Union's Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) legislation prohibited the use of the R-22 refrigerant in all EU member states. Currently, R-22 is used in a huge number of HVAC systems; however, R-22 will grow more expensive over time, and there will be a scarcity. As a result, consumers will need to replace their existing HVAC systems, which will boost demand for contemporary, energy-efficient HVAC systems with programmable thermostats for temperature management throughout the day..
The HVAC business is expected to grow at a steady pace. For optimal operation and to avoid failure, HVAC systems require fine-tuning and specific manufacture of parts during installation. As a result, professionals are required to install HVAC systems properly. If the installation is not done properly, the end user may have to pay extra for repairs in the future, or the HVAC systems may not function properly. The user is likely to pay greater costs as a result of the need for skilled workers. As a result, it may stymie the HVAC system market's implementation.
The rapid transformation of IoT within the HVAC industry to bring growth opportunities for the global market
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a situation in which HVAC systems are connected to the internet and data is shared. It manages HVAC systems, collects data, and stores it in the cloud; it enhances HVAC operations for increased efficiency, and it maintains a maintenance schedule that is predictive. It also monitors, regulates, and diagnoses units in a cost-effective manner over the internet. In addition, IoT allows for reduced HVAC system maintenance and repair expenses in the long run. IoT-enabled buildings, for example, can provide facility managers with early alerts of any operational irregularities and enable remote diagnostics and adjustment of units, thereby saving money by reducing system failures.
With the rapid advancement of technology, it is important to educate end customers about the advantages of new technology. In the case of HVAC systems, consumer understanding of cost and environmental benefits is minimal; they are typically seen as expensive, which makes market penetration in developing economies difficult. There is also a paucity of knowledge about energy-efficient HVAC systems. Despite various innovations, such as the development of low GWP refrigerants for HVAC, HVAC system adoption is not commensurate with the benefits they provide. Furthermore, there is a lack of awareness of HVAC system standards among HVAC system contractors. Higher SEER criteria, such as 21 SEER units, have just been introduced, which home HVAC building firms are ignorant of, causing their business to suffer.
The global HVAC Systems market is segregated based on cooling equipment, heating equipment, ventilation equipment, implementation type, application, and region.
By cooling equipment, the market is classified into unitary air conditioners, VRF systems, chillers, room air conditioners, coolers, and cooling towers. Buildings, schools, businesses, and retail establishments all use unitary systems, especially where starting costs and easy installation low are vital. A tiny self-contained electrical unit containing a motor-driven refrigeration compressor, evaporative cooling coil, an air-cooled condenser, as well as filters, fans, and controls, is known as a unitary air conditioner. Unitary air conditioners are mounted on the roof or on the exterior of structures. They are both high-performing and energy-saving. Unitary air conditioners include split air conditioners and packaged air conditioners. Daikin, Ingersoll Rand, Johnson Controls, Nortek, and Lennox are among the leading producers of unitary air conditioners.
By heating equipment, the market is divided into heat pumps, furnaces, unitary heaters, and boilers. During the projected period, the market for furnaces is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR. The low starting cost, longer lifespan, and rising demand in residential applications are driving the expansion of the furnaces segment. The residential market for furnaces dominated the HVAC system market. The demand for furnaces in residential applications is likely to rise as a result of government grants and rebates for homeowners replacing aging heating equipment with new furnaces. For example, the government of British Columbia (BC) provides households up to USD 700 in rebates for a new gas heater.
