HVAC industry

Growing construction sector

The construction industry is driving the growth in HVAC systems due to the rapid rise in new homes and commercial buildings. Air conditioning has transformed the architectural landscape around the world, allowing glass-fronted skyscrapers to be built in hot climates, such as the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah in Dubai.

The HVAC industry – facts and figures

HVAC - An innovative industry for energy saving


Heating and cooling for everyday comfort
Hospitals, offices, shopping centers, factories and houses – just about any building you could name requires some form of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.

Building boom boosts demand
The boom in construction projects and rising sales of commercial buildings and homes around the world is driving growth in the HVAC sector. In particular, advancing urbanization and industrialization in developing countries have created a demand for more factories and residential complexes fitted with HVAC systems.

Drive for energy efficiency
Energy efficiency is now a key requirement for new HVAC installations. Governments worldwide have introduced regulations designed to encourage the take-up of HVAC systems that comply with industry standards for energyefficient performance. This has also provided an incentive for replacing old HVAC systems with modern versions.

Heating up the industry

By 2022 the HVAC systems industry is forecast to reach US$ 173.16 billion (a compound annual growth rate of of 5.9%). The APAC region is expected to grow at the highest rate, with China, Japan and India leading the way. A combination of lower operating costs, energy efficiency and government incentives is encouraging the replacement of HVAC systems in Germany, Japan, the UK and the US.

Replacing to save energy

As part of an energy-efficiency drive, governments in many parts of the world are providing incentives for replacing old HVAC systems. In Germany, the strategy for energyefficient-buildings and CO2-rehabilitation-program covers energy upgrades for buildings and energy-efficient new buildings. Heat demand is supposed to be reduced by 20% and greenhouse gases by 40% till 2020. By 2050 -80% greenhouse gas emissions compared with 1990 level and -50 % primary energy demand compared with 2008 level should be achieved.

HVAC the smart way

Advances in the Internet of Things are boosting the development of smart HVAC control systems which use wireless sensors to adjust output automatically, based on natural climate, humidity and motion. In 2014, 33% of thermostats sold were wifi-enabled and the number is predicted to increase to 75% by 2019.
