Some of the factors supporting growth of the air conditioning systems
[http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/air-conditioning-systems-market.html ] market
worldwide include replacement need in developed regions such as North America and Europe,
growing awareness about energy efficient and eco-friendly products, and increasing demand
for technologically advanced air conditioning with sensible cooling. Inverter-based and
solar-based air conditioning systems are expected to witness significant growth in the
near future due to their energy efficient features, which help meet stringent energy
regulations. In addition, improvements in housing construction design and rise in number
of building permits, particularly for commercial infrastructures, is aiding the growth of
the air conditioning systems market. Increase in the total spending across different
industry verticals is expected to support the acceptance of packaged air conditioning
systems and drive the demand in the coming few years. Industry verticals such as
manufacturing sector and small to medium enterprises are potential end users for packaged
air conditioning systems.

Currently, a major challenge affecting the market growth is the power consumption by
air conditioners, which is higher as compared to other electrical appliances. However,
this is in turn increasing the demand and scope for energy efficient models. Also, the
carbon emission associated with usage of air conditioning systems is further deterring
market growth, and is expected to have significant impacts in the future, if not addressed
properly. This is mainly due to increased focus on reducing green house gas emission and
signing of many relevant global treaties and agreements like the Kyoto protocol and
Montreal protocol.

Amongst the different systems, portable air conditioning systems are popular in
regions such as North America and Europe, as its cooling capacity matches with the
environmental conditions of these regions. North America portable air conditioning systems
market is expected to grow from 973.7 thousand units in 2012 to 1,743.7 thousand units in
2018; at an estimated CAGR of 10.2% from 2012 to 2018. On the other hand, split air
conditioning systems have higher adoption rate in regions with extreme weather conditions,
as these systems provide better temperature control and best fit to these conditions.
Portable systems are the lowest priced while windows air conditioning systems are priced
marginally higher than portables and are about half the average price of a split air
conditioning system. The price of portable systems is expected to rise owing to its
increasing demand in the newer segments such as tent market.

Some of the major players in the air conditioning systems market include Daikin
Industries Ltd., LG Electronics, Mitsubishi Corporation, Hitachi Ltd., Samsung
Electronics, Panasonic, Carrier, Sharp Corporation, Haier Electronics Group Co. Ltd, and
many more. Daikin is the world’s largest player in this market. Small players and new
entrants will find it difficult to establish themselves in the air conditioning systems
market and are expected to face stiff competition from the existing players, due to widely
followed merger and acquisition strategies by these players, to consolidate and maintain
their positions and survive the competition.
