Market Overview

The HVAC Services Market was valued at USD 54.74 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 78.10 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period 2020 - 2025. Growing construction business in major emerging economies and the growing end-user markets, like data center market, are the major factors driving the growth of the HVAC services market over the forecast period. Since the service firms rely extensively on labor for their operations, the existing demand and supply gap in the labor/HVAC technicians, clubbed with high-cost technicians, is expected to restrain the growth of the market.

  • Construction activity has a positive impact on not only the HVAC equipment market, but also on the HVAC services market. With increased construction activity in emerging economies, the investments on infrastructure are on the rise, in order to cater to the increasing standard of living. The Asia-Pacific region tops world growth, and had an expected 6.3% increase in GDP in 2018, according to the World Bank. China, in particular, shows strong development, leading the region in terms of growth, innovation, and major investments. Moreover, both the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank predict that strong economic growth will continue in the region, until at least 2020. This will positively impact the construction sector, as the region is witnessing major investments in construction projects.
  • Thus, the installation and maintenance segment of the HVAC services market, is expected to benefit, due the increasing sales of HVAC equipment, through new construction projects. With regards to constructional developments globally, according to a report by Oxford Economies, construction output is forecast to expand by 85%, to USD 15.5 trillion worldwide, in 2030, with countries, like the United States., China, and India accounting for 57% of the market growth.

Scope of the Report

The HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) services market includes the different services provided to the end users by the OEMs and other regional players. The services primarily include installation and system integration, maintenance, and repair. The end users include building contractors and owners (non-residential), home owners, retail stores, food services companies, pharmaceutical, and healthcare companies, among others. The HVAC services market has a direct correlation with the HVAC equipment market. Any changes in the demand for the equipment will impact the services market positively, as higher demand for new equipment leads to higher installation or retrofitting services.

Key Market Trends

Residential Segment is Expected to Register a Significant Growth

The demand for HVAC services in the residential sector, is primarily from Asia-Pacific, owing to the growing population, across the region, thereby leading to new installations. The demand in developed regions, like North America and Europe, is mainly from the maintenance and replacement services.

In the wake of the global financial crisis and housing market collapse, an overhang of housing in many mature economies led to a breakdown in prices of the existing homes, and stifled new residential construction spending.

Direct real estate investment, and increasing wealth and prosperity in regions, such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, are driven by economic growth. The increasing migration to existent and newly emerging cities, in these regions, is accelerating the demand for new homes.

The robust construction of residential buildings by the private sector, coupled with the government initiatives to bridge emerging countries’ housing shortages, is also acting as a significant factor for the growth of the market. For instance, in the Philippines, the government estimated that the country’s residential sector growth could come in at an annual average of 10.3%, in real terms, from 2018-2026.

According to data from the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council, the country’s social housing backlog is now at 5.6 million units. There were over 30,000 residential construction permits issued by the end of the second quarter of 2017, 24% higher than in 2016. Recently, in 2018, rising rents across Toronto led to record-breaking sales for multi-residential apartment buildings. The sales reached USD 1.2 billion in the third quarter of 2018.

The United States is Expected to Hold Major Share

Growing government support in the form of higher budget allocations, designed to increase home ownership and sustainable community development, and the increasing affordability of housing, may contribute to the ever growing residential construction sector. In 2017, the US government allocated a budget of USD 46.7 billion (an increase of 1.9% over the previous year) to support residential construction. The increasing population in the country may also contribute to the rising housing demand. The boom in the construction sector is likely to contribute to the expanding of the market for HVAC and HVAC services.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has released new efficiency standards, for commercial HVAC units, in which carbon emissions must be reduced by up to 60 million metric ton by 2030. According to these standards, specialized units should be manufactured, should be able to provide energy-efficiency, and provide sustainable heating and cooling solutions.

Increased construction activities, rapid urbanization, infrastructural reforms, and HVAC unit replacements are some of the major factors supporting the growth of the US HVAC services market. The DOE has invested almost USD 8 million to replace old refrigerants with energy efficient alternatives, which can minimize environmental threats posed by rooftop HVAC units.
