The global heat pump market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 8% during the period 2019-2025.

The global heat pump market size by revenues will cross over $92 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. The industry is expected to grow more than 1.6X times in terms of revenue during the forecast period. The market witnessed reasonable growth in 2019 where over 50% of the contribution came from established markets such as China, the US, and Japan. The global heat pump market is expected to witness sudden traction in demand in 2021 after the downfall of the market in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The market growth was sluggish in Q1 and Q2 of 2020 owing to the entire disruption in the supply chain. The majority of manufacturers operated with limited resources and a workforce that highly affected the market.

The district heating concept, which is increasingly favored in recent times, is expected to make the use of heat pumps as a major source. Heat is also expected to be generated from geothermal and biomass solutions. Rebate systems in several European countries have played a major role in large-scale adoption. The growth of green buildings and strong building conduct codes are other supporting factors that can stimulate the growth of heat pumps during the period 2020-2025.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the heat pump market during the forecast period:
  • Growth in Green Buildings
  • Preference for IoT Enabled Heat Pumps
  • Increased Popularity of Dual Source Heat Pumps
  • Need for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Global Heat Pump Market Segmentation

The global heat pump market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product type, power source, application, and geography. Air source heat pumps were the dominant segment in 2019 and constituted over 70% of the total market share. The major factor driving the installation of these pumps is high-energy efficiency, which is proven to save a minimum of 3,000 kWh per year than other conventional methods. Another major factor driving growth is the increasing adoption of ductless pumps in renovation projects. As the majority of air source heat pumps are designed to accommodate and run through the energies obtained from solar or wind energy, the product is considered as an ideal choice for achieving 100% sustainability for the welfare of the environment. The segment constitutes air-to-air and air-to-water pumps, which are likely to scale new heights in revenue during the forecast period.

The less than 10 kW segment dominates the market on account of the extensive usage of heat pumps in the residential segment. Majority of homes under 3,500 sq. ft consider these heat pumps as ideal with affordable cost and installation. APAC is the fastest-growing region for the segment owing to the concentration of underpenetrated and growing economies. North America is also expected to ship 3.35million units of

The 10-20 kW segment by revenue is expected to pose an absolute growth of 62% during the forecast period. In terms of shipment, Europe and North America are likely to grow at promising CAGRs during the forecast period. China, the US, and GCC countries are likely to emerge major countries on account of increased commercial construction activities. The increased preference for high-capacity heat pumps for space cooling in hot and humid regions of the Middle East & Africa is expected to generate high revenue during the forecast period for the segment.

The residential end-user segment dominated the market in 2019 and is expected to remain significant during the forecast period. The rise in disposable income, the increased awareness of geothermal energies, the use of HVAC systems utilizing renewable resources, awareness of sustainability, and eco-friendliness are expected to drive the market in the residential sector. With established markets in Europe, North America, and a few major countries in the APAC region, the residential segment constitutes more than 65% for the less than 10 kW heat pump market.

APAC was estimated to be the largest market for heat pumps in 2019 with China being the largest market contributing over 21% to the global revenue share. Japan closely follows China, which is expected to pose an absolute growth of 67% in terms of unit shipments. The growth is expected from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, where low product awareness and high cost of installation are major challenges for adoption. With the objective of reducing CO2 emissions by 26% in 2030 and 80% by 2050, the market for heat pumps is well developed in Japan where lower GWP refrigerants are always preferred. While the temperature in the country ranges between -2 and 32 Celsius, vendors can design heat pumps that can accordingly perform well in specific climatic conditions. Further lifestyle, demography, and weather conditions are also favoring the growth of the heat pumps market in the country. The successful implementation of air-to-water heat pumps in large commercial spaces such as Australia has encouraged the adoption of high-capacity devices that are above 10 kW. Heat pumps have also replaced most conventional boilers in the country, thereby contributing to the overall revenue of the market.
