Heat Pump Market by Technology (Air to Air, Air to Water, Others), by Power Capacity (<10kW, 10kW-20kW, >>20kW), by End User (Residential, Commercial, Industrial), by Region (Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America, North America) – Global Forecast 2019 to 2027

Heat Pump Market: Summary

The Global Heat Pump Market is estimated to reach USD 104.4 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 9.7%, observes forencis research (FSR).

Heat pump is defined as an equipment which transfers heat from one area to another with the help of mechanical or electric methods. As per the requirement, heat pump either transfers heat from cool outdoor to warm indoor or heat from cool indoor to warm outdoor. The heat is transferred by heat pumps instead of generating, which makes it energy efficient alternative.

Heat Pump Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Drivers:

  • Growing Awareness towards Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Conventionally fossil fuels were used to fulfil energy use, which are the major producers of CO2 emissions. CO2 emissions have adverse effects on the environment and results in problems like global warming. To reduce CO2 emissions heat pumps can be used as solution. According to International Energy Association (IEA), 50% CO2 emissions from building sector and 5% from the industrial sector can be reduced by the incorporation of heat pumps. Thus implementing heat pumps can be effective for energy conservation, reduction in CO2 emissions, and reduction in effects of climatic change.

Thus, growing awareness towards carbon dioxide emissions may contribute in the growth of the heat pump market, during the forecast period.

  • Supportive Government Policies

Government is developing various policies encouraging people to use renewable and energy efficient heat sources. Such policies across various nations may further surge the demand of heat pumps. For instance, the European Directive on renewable energy 2009/28/CE (EU 2009) have set target for all member states, so that by 2020, 20% share of energy must be from renewable sources in the European Union. Annex VII of this directive mentions usage of heat pumps, it specifies that heat pumps with 15% of energy gain over the input primary energy should be considered.

Thus, supportive government policies is a projected to contribute in the growth of the heat pump market, during the forecast period.

Market Challenges:

  • High Initial Cost

The heat pumps are reliable in nature, helps in CO2 emissions reduction and is energy efficient technology. But there are few challenges which need to be addressed to use this technology at its full potential. The initial cost of the heat pump is quite high which becomes a barrier in the growth of the market. Also, the installation of the system is quite difficult as it requires planning to understand the inlets and the outlets of the heat, which adds up to additional cost to the overall installation. 

Thus, high initial cost is anticipated to be a challenging factor for the growth of the heat pump market, during the forecast period.
