Various technologies have been adopted by these boiler manufacturers, such as growing digital system integration for effective control & monitoring capabilities, ease of installation, and low acquisition costs, driving the market's growth.
Establishment of New Commercial Sectors to Propel Market Growth
The establishment of the new commercial sector such as offices, healthcare, and educational institutions is expected to propel these boilers worldwide. For example, from April 2021 to June 2021, more than 17,200 new companies were set up in India. Therefore, these new companies will propel the commercial sector, supporting the commercial boiler market growth.
Rising Demand from Healthcare Sector is expected to Drive Growth
The healthcare sector uses these boilers for cleaning, sterilizing, and space heating. The up-gradation of healthcare infrastructure is the primary priority among policymakers worldwide, continuously driving the new investment in the healthcare sector. The exponential surge in hospital admission owing to the pandemic of COVID-19 has further accelerated the investment in the healthcare sector. The rising demand for installing a new boiler system and upgrading existing boilers will propel the growth of boilers.
Growth of Connected Controls to Boilers Will Boost Product Adoption
Boiler manufacturers are continuously doing research and producing technology-driven products. Today, the boilers are growing due to their connected controls, which are Wi-Fi accessible and allow the consumer to control the boiler. Connected controls boilers are gaining popularity among consumers as they can control home heating or cooling, which traditional boilers don’t provide. For Example, Bosch Thermotechnology has launched industry-first connected boilers, which can be connected through laptops or tablets and allow multiple heating systems to be monitored or controlled.
High Maintenance Cost of these Boilers will Hinder the Market
One of the most prominent factors hindering the market is frequent cleaning and maintenance throughout the forecast period. Although regular cleaning will improve the performance and efficiency of the boiler, it will also add the additional maintenance cost, which is expected to decline the sale of boilers worldwide.

Natural Gas as a Fuel is Set to Lead Market Owing to its Combustion Process
Based on fuel, the market is segmented into natural gas, coal, oil, and others. The natural gas segment is expected to lead the market because the combustion of natural gas produces mainly carbon dioxide and water, and they don’t affect the environment. Natural gas causes the least pollution compared to oil and coal as fossil fuel; in addition, natural gas has a high calorific value which means that natural gas presents the highest amount of heat during the combustion process. The government worldwide is also supporting natural gas usage compared to solid fuels because natural gas improves the overall efficiency and reduces the harmful emission of gases to the environment.
Non-Condensing Technology to Dominate Global Market Owing to Ease in Installation Process
By technology, the market is segmented into condensing and non-condensing boilers. The non-condensing boilers are anticipated to lead the market due to their energy efficiency, longer life span, and lower price. The non-condensing boiler doesn’t require any expert for installation. Furthermore, the non-condensing boilers have a single unit heat exchanger chamber, which allows the hot gases from the burner, pass through to heat the water within the exchanger's walls before reaching the exit flue. The non-condensing boiler heating temperature is kept high enough to prevent water vapor in the flue gas from condensing, which prevents the boiler from corrosion.
Growing Demand for Hot Water and Steam in the Healthcare Sector to Lead Market
By end-user, the market is segmented into educational institutions, offices, healthcare sector, hospitality, and others. The healthcare sector segments are expected to dominate and fastest-growing users for these boilers. Large quantities of reliable hot water and steam are required for cleaning, sterilizing, and space heating. The demand for heat systems such as blowers, geysers, and others in office premises has increased the demand for these boilers.
