The Increasing in Demand for Smart HVAC System Market is Expected to Propel Market

The smart heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) systems market are gaining popularity owing to the increasing penetration of the Internet of things (IoT) and building automation solutions. The rising demand for customers for increased sustainable and efficient infrastructure is expected to drive the intelligent heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system market. This is attributed to the surge in smart cities development in emerging economies such as India, China and others. For instance, the government of India launched the smart cities mission in 2015. This is mission is fueling the growth of smart infrastructure solutions and is likely to result in the growth of the intelligent HVAC system market. Furthermore, the features including increasing connectivity, remote controlling and monitoring are driving the smart HVAC systems demand. The increasing demand from the commercial sector including offices, hospitality and others is resulting in the growth of the HVAC system market.


Shortage of Skilled Labor is Expected to Impact the Market

The lack of qualified technicians in HVAC industry over the past few years is expected to impact the market growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. has a shortage of more than 70,000 technicians. In addition, the 25% of the workforce is expected to be retried by the end of 2020, thus the increased need for skilled professionals. Furthermore, the companies will seek around 115,000 new HVACR qualified technicians in next four years. However, the companies are growing through strategic planning and providing various trainings to their employees. For instance, Daikin Learning Institutes deliver necessary training of the advanced HVAC technology as well as Daikin Applied is accredited by International Association for Continuing Education and Training. Moreover, Daikin also incorporates various training programs for its distributors too.
