Global HVAC controls market is projected to hit $17.51 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 10.8% to 2022 led by increasing use of IP technology, growing number of construction activities, and increased legislation and energy management initiatives for increasing the adoption of HVAC.
The main factors which positively impact the HVAC controls market are the demand for improved energy-efficient devices and low environmental impact with the use of HVAC controls, increasing use of IP technology, growing number of construction activities, and increased legislation and energy management initiatives for increasing the adoption of HVAC. The high level of efficiency through wireless controls and sensors and tax reduction offered by government for the implementation of HVAC controls are some of the other factors supporting the growth of the market.
The market for the commercial buildings application-which includes office buildings, educational centers, healthcare centers, hospitality centers, retail centers, and others-is expected to grow at a high CAGR. HVAC system is the highest energy consumer in commercial places. Various government regulations and tax credit schemes for retrofits are encouraging the growth of the HVAC controls market. Additionally, Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 also provides a tax credit to the owners of new or existing commercial buildings on the implementation of heating, cooling, ventilation, or hot water systems which would help to reduce the total energy consumption of the building and also reduce energy-related costs. Thus, the owners of commercial building increasingly prefer implementing HVAC controls to reduce the energy consumption.
The increasing real estate and infrastructural activity in the Asia-Pacific region along with the increasing population and urbanization in countries such as China and India drive the growth of the market for HVAC controls. HVAC controls are gradually becoming an integral part of digitalized households. The market for HVAC controls in the residential, commercial, as well as industrial buildings applications is expected to grow with the new construction activities which are expected to implement HVAC controls on a large scale. Integrated control systems are expected to hold the largest share of the market in the future owing to its benefit of offering different controls through a single device.
