Global HVAC Controls Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Globally Rising Construction of Residential Buildings – A radical increase in worldwide population has been observed which has doubled the construction of residential buildings within the past few decades in various regions of the world. Urban areas have been densely populated as a result of such massive increase in the construction of residential buildings. Such an increase has been influencing the rise in the demand for HVAC control systems for the smooth functioning of several heating, ventilation, and cooling devices. Thus, the upsurge in the construction of residential buildings is projected to propel the market growth during the forecast time across the globe. For instance, new residential construction in the United States was predicted to soar by approximately USD 89 billion in 2022.
  • Worldwide Increase in Urbanization - Urbanization is the procedure by which cities develop and a rising proportion of the population migrates there to live. Increasing population growth in cities necessitates the conversion of land for residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation needs, which is estimated to spur the market growth of HVAC Controls in the coming years. Based on the United Nations report, the proportion of the global population living in cities is anticipated to rise to 68% by 2050. Furthermore, the steady change in human population resident status from rural to urban areas, along with the worldwide rise in population is estimated to bring another 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050, with Asia and Africa accounting for about 90% of this expansion.
  • Global Effect of Climate Change – Massive rise in industrialization, and urbanization has increased the ratio of carbon emissions in the environment. The issue of carbon has doubled the problem of climatic change within the past few decades. Owing to rising temperatures and the unpredictability of the weather, HVAC equipment has become a utility rather than a luxury, which is anticipated to fuel the market growth during the projected time frame. For instance, the earth's surface temperature in 2020 was about 0.97 Celsius degrees higher than it was on average during the 20th century.
  • Escalating Adoption of Smart Thermostats – A smart thermostat is completely a Wi-Fi enabled device that can manage and control the heating and cooling of a smart home for optimal performance and tracking of energy consumption. As of these multiple advantages the integration of smart thermostats has been growing in residential, and commercial spaces, which is also projected to skyrocket market growth in the coming years. According to a survey statistic, in Germany, approximately 18% of homes had fitted smart thermostats by 2021.
  • Advantage of Energy Saving with HVAC Controls – According to a study, integrating HVAC control systems estimated is to reduce energy usage by around 22-30%.


  • Associated Complexities in Upgradation of HVAC Control Systems – HVAC controls have varied types of sensors and equipment that regulate airflow, temperature, and so on. Such complex configuration is also very sensitive to electrical issues. Thus, such complexities make it difficult to upgrade the existing HVAC control systems, which is estimated to hinder market growth in the coming years.  
  • High Cost of HVAC Controls
  • Lack of Skilled Professionals for Appropriate Installation and Retrofitting of HVAC Controls
