The global heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system market size was USD 130.19 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 191.83 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period.

Heating, ventilation, and cooling systems are utilized to transfer air between indoor and outdoor areas. They filter the indoor air to keep the environment healthy and maintain humidity at an optimal comfort level.

Increasing demand for hybrid HVAC systems is an emerging trend. The growing demand for automatic adjustment of temperature is complimenting the growth of hybrid systems. Additionally, the surge in construction activities in the commercial and residential sectors and demand from food & beverage and telecom industries is anticipated to contribute significantly to the HVAC system market growth. However, the lack of qualified professionals is expected to grow and to impact market growth in the near future.

Adverse Impact of COVID-19 on the HVAC System Market Attributed to Halted Manufacturing Processes

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the global economy since the first case was reported in December 2019. In the first quarter of 2020, the global heating, ventilation, and cooling system market growth has been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is attributable to the lockdown of several component manufacturing facilities across countries including, Ireland, Germany, U.S., China and others. The lockdown has not only halted the manufacturing process but has also shrunken the customer demand for HVAC equipment.

However, the demand for air filters across residential usage, purified air supply across commercial buildings, and minimization of suffocated air over industrial areas is expected to boost the demand for HVAC systems in the coming future. Additionally, governmental bodies such as the Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Association, ASHRAE, and others are employing mitigation tactics that can help to further reduce the possibility of HVAC systems becoming contaminated with the COVID-19 virus. This, in turn, is expected to compliment the rising demand for these systems amid the current crisis.

Rising Preference for Hybrid HVAC Systems to Take the Market by Storm

The surge in demand for hybrid HVAC systems is expected to result in the heating, ventilation, and cooling system market growth. The benefits of hybrid systems such as automatic adjustment of the temperature according to the change in environment are gaining popularity among customers. For instance, in October 2019, Carrier introduced ‘Carrier Hybrid Heat’ that utilizes a gas furnace and electric heat pump as a heating source to react to changing environments. Also, the high energy-efficiency of these systems results in cost reductions, thus offering high returns on initial investments. In addition, the reduced environmental impact and increased system lifespan is resulting in rising demand for hybrid systems.


Technological Advancements in HVAC Systems to Propel the Market

Rising demand for technologically advanced heating, ventilation, and cooling systems is expected to drive the market growth. The growth in green-labeled products owing to the increased environmental awareness has given rise to the thermally driven air-conditioners. Manufacturers such as Lennox International Inc., Daikin Industries, Ltd., and others are offering these systems. These air-conditioners utilize both natural gas as well as solar energy, thus ensuring energy efficiency. The additional benefits offered are low maintenance, independent control of pipes for heating and cooling purposes, and automatic adjustments to current requirements, along with improved lifetime cost and efficiency. Furthermore, smart thermostats and sensors, which can be controlled remotely through apps, are gaining popularity among the customers, especially in commercial buildings, in order to gain energy- and cost-efficiency. Therefore, the technological advancements in HVAC systems are complementing global market growth.


Shortage of Skilled Labor to Impact the Market

The lack of qualified technicians for heating, ventilation, and cooling systems over the past few years is expected to impact market growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. has a shortage of more than 70,000 technicians. In addition, 25% of the workforce is expected to retire by the end of 2020, increasing the need for skilled professionals. Furthermore, the companies will seek around 115,000 new HVACR qualified technicians in the next four years. However, the companies are growing through strategic planning and providing various trainings to their employees.
