The global air conditioner market size was USD 123.19 billion in 2020 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

The global air conditioner market size was USD 123.19 billion in 2020 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Market revenue growth is primarily driven by ongoing economic growth of developing countries and rising global temperature. Increasing humidity levels and temperature worldwide is a key factor expected to boost revenue growth of the market during the forecast period. Scorching heat waves are breaking records in many countries such as the U.S., Australia, and Siberia. Based on Future of Cooling 2018 reports by the International Energy Agency (IEA), it was estimated that around two-thirds of the world’s households could have air conditioners by 2025. Countries such as India, China, and Indonesia together are expected to account for half of the total number of units for that particular year. Moreover, extension of working from home practice and onslaught of sweltering summer are expected to have a positive impact on the air conditioner market. Consumers are trying to make their homes more comfortable as the time spent indoors has surged rapidly because of COVID-19 pandemic. Many air conditioner manufacturers such as Voltas are increasingly investing in the development of advanced air conditioners and outlined a 360-degree marketing plan to further increase market shares.

Furthermore, increasing disposable income of consumers, improvements in housing standards, and rising living standards are expected to drive demand for multi-split air conditioners during the forecast period. Multi-split air conditioners are quick and easy to set up or install, as well as extremely energy-efficient.

There is a growing demand for split and multi-split air conditioners in developing countries due to increasing disposable income of consumers and rising standards of living. Packaged air conditioners are commonly used in places such as restaurants, telephone exchanges, homes, and small halls. Rising number of individual clinics, hospitals, auditoriums, hotels, and other commercial buildings across the world is contributing to growing demand for Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF). Emergence of technologically advanced air conditioners is also resulting in increasing demand for smart air conditioners.

Moreover, governments of various countries are setting higher efficiency standards for cooling which is driving demand for energy-efficient air conditioners. These higher efficiency standards for cooling are established by governments in order to reduce the need for new power plants, cut emissions, and reduce costs at the same time. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established new energy conservation standards for portable air conditioners.
