Growing Environmental Concerns Trigger Sales of Solar Powered Air Conditioning Systems
The development of renewable energy has been on the rise since the past decade, as the world realised the downside of using traditional energy sources. The energy consumption accounted for by air conditioning systems worldwide is alarming, and this is triggering customers as well as manufacturers to shift to renewable sources. Consequently, the global market for air conditioning systems is expected to witness an incremental use of solar power over conventional energy sources. Furthermore, stringent regulations imposed upon the energy consumption through electronic applications including air conditioning systems will further trigger the sales of solar powered production in the market, in the coming years.
Room Air Conditioners to Remain Most Sought-after in the Residential Sector
Improved dispensable income of consumers along with the rising standards of housing are attributed for the increasing demand for room air conditioners across the residential sector. As a result, more than 40% of the revenue share in the global air conditioning systems market is accounted for by the residential sector. In the coming years, the demand for air conditioning systems in the commercial sector will be concentrated across the construction industry, food & beverage, as well as healthcare industry.
Furthermore, the demand for split air conditioners and packaged air conditioning systems will witness an upsurge mainly due to the rising permit rates for construction as well as their ease of installation, low initial cost, and lower noise levels. Portable air conditioning systems are also witnessing high demand owing to the compact nature and high efficiency, which will further trigger manufacturers to offer more innovative features in this segment of the market.
Skepticism about the Link between Air Conditioning and COVID-19 may Impact Sales
A limited study conducted by Chinese researchers discovers that an asymptomatic COVID positive diner at one restaurant situated in Guangzhou, China, spread the disease to nine other diners in January. The study also finds that the virus particles were blown away by one of the restaurant’s air-conditioners around the dining room. Various conclusions drawn by the study include that the virus can be kept afloat by various complex patterns created by ventilation systems, and this has contributed to triggering the fear among customers.
In recent months, many governing bodies across the world introduced guidelines about the use of air conditioning systems and ventilation to control the spread of COVID-19 in residential areas as well as in commercial spaces. Many manufacturers in the air conditioning systems market are also introducing new campaigns to spread awareness about the facts regarding the link between air conditioning and the spread of COVID-19, and provide an impetus to sales in the coming future.
Air Conditioning Systems Market: Region-wise Analysis
The global market for air conditioning systems is broadly divided into even geographical regions including North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. With move one-third revenue share, Asia Pacific region has been dominating this landscape since 2013, and rapidly expanding industrial activities as well as increasing disposable income of consumers will continue to create lucrative opportunities for players in the air conditioning systems market, in the coming years.
Growing sales of air conditioning systems in Southasian countries, including China and India, have contributed to the growth of the market. However, it has also put an immense stain on the already-volatile environment across the region.
