|【英語タイトル】Air Conditioner Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)|
The air conditioner market is projected to register a CAGR of greater than 5% during the forecast period, 2021-2026. The air conditioning (AC) industry is expected to witness huge growth due to the soaring temperature and humidity levels across the world, along with the rising acceptance of air conditioners as a utility product rather than a luxury product. The emergence of technologically advanced air conditioners, such as air conditioners with inverter and air purification technologies, is further anticipated to positively influence the air conditioner market through the forecast period.
In 2019, the global sales of air conditioning units increased by just over 2% in terms of volume. The spread of COVID-19 disrupted the market demand and global supply chain in 2020. China is one of the largest consumers and producers of air conditioner products, but it also caters to a wide range of countries by exporting several input supplies that are essentially used to produce finished goods. The shutdown of production in China has forced other air conditioner manufacturers based in the United States and Europe to temporarily hold the production of finished goods. This led to an increase in the supply and demand gap in the market.
Numerous segments within the air conditioner industry may increase in market size in the coming years, especially the market for smart air conditioners. The rising popularity of smart gadgets that can convert conventional remote-controlled air conditioners into smart devices is likely to be the primary growth driver, leading the smart air conditioner market. Improvement in housing standards is fueling the demand for room air conditioners, while packaged air conditioners are estimated to grow at a moderate rate with rising permit rates for construction of malls, offices, and industries.
Government regulations on refrigerants are forcing manufacturers to develop energy-efficient and eco-friendly products. There have been many technological developments observed in the market due to the phasing out of key refrigerants. Once the most preferred refrigerants, CFCs, are likely to be completely replaced by other refrigerants in the next few years.
