"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
Boilers have applications in the industries in order to provide hot water or steam as a utility to numerous processes. The boiler manufacturers have also developed various boilers for residential and commercial heating applications. The different types of boilers available in the market include oil fired boilers, gas-fired boilers, and coal-fired boilers, among others. The classification of the boilers is done on the basis of the efficiency of heating and fuel type used.
The oil-fired boilers use heating oil as fuel while the gas-fired boilers use natural gas and liquified petroleum gas as fuel. The gas-fired boilers generally provide higher efficiency as compared to other types of boilers. The gas-fired boilers are easy to maintain and clean as compared to the oil-fired boilers.

By material type, the gas-fired boilers available in the market are cast iron, cast aluminum, and stainless steel gas-fired boilers among others. The heating efficiencies of the cast iron gas-fired boilers are lower as compared to the cast aluminum and stainless steel gas-fired boilers. The stainless steel gas-fired boilers exhibit the highest efficiency among the gas-fired boilers by material type.
By capacity, the gas-fired boilers are categorized depending on the output capacity as 100 to 500 Kg/hr, 500 to 5,000 Kg/hr and >5,000 Kg/hr. The capacities of the gas-fired boiler are designed as per their applications in the residential, commercial and industrial spaces. The residential applications use the small capacity of the gas-fired boilers, and commercial spaces and industries use all (small, medium, and high) capacities of gas-fired boilers.
Gas-fired boilers can achieve efficiencies up to 95%, which makes them more efficient as compared to the other boilers. Owing to this, the gas-fired boilers are expected to witness a surge in demand for residential and commercial applications in the coming years. The residential application of gas-fired boilers is for heating the water, and the growth in the construction of residential buildings is thus expected to drive the sales of gas-fired boilers in the coming years.
The gas-fired boilers are efficient than the oil-fired boilers, but the cost of the fuel which is natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas is higher as compared to the heating oil which is expected to retard the growth of gas-fired boilers market during the forecast period.
