Top 3 Factors Affecting the Industrial Condensing Units Market

  • Price Competitiveness and Product Innovation Set to Play a Pivotal Role

    Energy efficiency and compliance with new regulations are important factors to be considered while manufacturing industrial condensing units. Besides, to offer low-priced, supreme industrial condensing units, market stakeholders must invest significantly in their R&D and develop new cost-effective products. High reliability, energy-saving technology, and unique design are the factors that manufacturers need to focus on.

    Danfoss has equipped Intermediate Discharge Valves (IDVs) in compressors, which avoid over-compression caused by the motor during part-load operations, thus reducing their energy consumption.

  • Low-cost Manufacturing Capabilities and Strong Suppliers’ Network to Enhance Market Share in the Industrial Condensing Units Market

    Many companies have set up their production plants in India. From India, these companies are exporting industrial condensing units to the rest of the world, including Latin America, Southeast Asia, and countries/regions such as Australia, New Zealand, and Africa.

    Distributors and suppliers possess important competitive advantages in the industrial condensing units market. Subsequently, the ability to offer cutting-edge technical assistance related to industrial condensing units will act as an important competitive advantage for manufacturers and distributors to increase the number of buyers for their products.

  • High Demand for Commercial Construction to Propel Market Pace

    When the construction industry is down, companies emphasize on the retrofit market to boost the sales of industrial condensing units. Moreover, the increased bargaining power of consumers has certainly pushed the demand for superior quality, fresh food products.

    The transportation of food products to the processing units with minimal loss in freshness is thus the need of the hour. Subsequently, these factors are boosting the demand for industrial condensing units.

Industrial Condensing Units Market Structure Analysis

  • The global industrial condensing units market is a fragmented landscape, with the tier 1 players holding almost 45% revenue share.
  • Leading players in the industrial condensing units market are primarily concentrating on the ASEAN and India markets, where cost competitiveness will remain a strong differentiation strategy.
  • While most of the key participants in the market are maintaining strategic focus on China, North America, and Europe, this report states that environment-friendly products and new technology assessment will be relatively important developmental strategies for companies.
