Portable HVAC Equipment Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

In developing nations, the requirement for electronic gadgets is rising significantly due to increasing disposable incomes and consumer standards of living. HVAC is the application of various technologies to regulate the humidity, temperature, and air quality in a closed space. These systems' main objective is to provide appropriate thermal comfort and better indoor air quality.

Mechanical engineering's HVAC system design subfield is founded on fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transport laws. HVAC can also be referred to as HVACR or HVAC&R where R stands for refrigeration. HVAC system plays an important role in residential structures like single-family homes, apartment complexes, hotels, and elderly care facilities.

HVAC systems are also widely used in commercial spaces like medium- to large offices, industrial buildings, skyscrapers, and hospitals, as well as in transportation like cars, trains, airplanes, and ships. HVAC systems are considered an integral part of marine environments where healthy and safe building conditions are governed concerning humidity and temperature using outside air. The high usage of these systems has also prompted manufacturers to introduce portability.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

When manufacturers examined how COVID-19 affected the markets, they noted comparable problems in the building industry. Most construction projects moved more slowly, while others were abandoned, and some HVAC manufacturing companies had to halt manufacturing lines for a few weeks. Supply networks were disrupted, distributors cut back on inventory, installers stayed home from work, and HVAC manufacturers tightly monitored their spending. While equipment prices remained the same, labor, transportation, and components costs slowly increased, placing pressure on manufacturers' profit margins. As a result, the pandemic had an adverse impact on the portable HVAC equipment market.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing demand for portable air conditioners

A portable air conditioner or spot cooler of 18000 BTU or more is employed for industrial purposes. Commercial portable air conditioners have several advantages. These include preventing product faults that can occur due to temperature and humidity, spot cooling without a significant expenditure for an air conditioning system to an entire facility, and lowering the risk of human mistakes and worker impairment. In addition, preserving clean air and an environment conducive to productive work in industrial facilities can also help to increase worker productivity and quality of work. This would further aid in propelling the growth of the portable HVAC equipment market.

Rising need for automated portable HVAC systems in homes and offices

One of the smart building technologies that are increasingly being used is building automation, which automates processes, reduces human interaction, improves HVAC system efficiency, stops energy waste, and decreases expenses. After the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations have again restarted. Ordinarily, offices have enough space to accommodate few people. However, there are significant operational expenditures as a result of the old HVAC systems and office lighting's high energy consumption and constant operation. As a result, the portable HVAC equipment market is guaranteed to grow in the coming years.

Market Restraining Factor

Negative effects on one's health from a poorly maintained HVAC system

Mold and mildew favor damp, dark settings. Additionally, badly maintained HVAC equipment may be causing moisture and humidity to build up in undetectable places. For example, unintentionally circulating mold and mildew into the area by turning on contaminated heating or air conditioning. Particle removal is the goal of HVAC filters. However, if they aren't routinely cleaned or changed, they could gather excessive allergens and disperse things like dander, pollen, and dust mites throughout the house. All of these factors operate against preserving a healthy environment inside a structure and impede market expansion.

Distribution Channel Outlook

Based on distribution channel, the portable HVAC equipment market is categorized into hypermarkets/supermarkets, specialty stores, departmental stores, online retail, and others. The hypermarkets/supermarkets segment garnered the highest revenue share in the portable HVAC equipment market in 2021. Supermarkets and hypermarkets typically cover a vast space and include a variety of brands all in one location. For further convenience and accessibility, they are specifically placed close to residential areas. Because of this, most people choose to purchase white products from supermarkets and hypermarkets.

Product Type Outlook

On the basis of product type, the portable HVAC equipment market is divided into portable fans, portable heaters, and portable air conditioners. The portable fans segment acquired the largest revenue share in the portable HVAC equipment market in 2021. A corded or battery-operated compact fan that can be moved easily from one location to another is referred to as a portable fan. On the market, manufacturers have a variety of portable fans to choose from. As a result, customers are drawn to portable fans that are simple to clean and transfer from one location to another. The segment's advancement is due to the increasing demand for portable fans in corporate offices and homes, which are growing in number.

End User Outlook

Based on end user, the portable HVAC equipment market is segmented into residential and commercial. The commercial segment procured a significant revenue share in the portable HVAC equipment market in 2021. Hotels, restaurants, businesses, hospitals, commercial complexes, and offices make up the commercial component of the portable HVAC equipment market. The market's leading competitors are continuously changing how the business sector must meet its requirements by updating and improving current portable HVAC equipment. As a result, numerous product introductions have recently, particularly for the commercial market.
