Transparency Market Research delivers key insights on the global district heating market. In terms of revenue, the global district heating market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period, owing to numerous factors, regarding which TMR offers thorough insights and forecast in its report on the global district heating market.

The global district heating market has been positively impacted by the increase in global heat demand and renewable energy-based district heating systems.

District Heating Market: Dynamics

District heating significantly increases the overall energy-efficiency of the system, as heat is coordinated with generation of electricity, refuse incineration, and industrial processes. District heating systems are an important part of heating sector decarburization, as these systems enable the integration of flexible and clean energy sources, which could be challenging at the individual building level in dense urban areas. Thus, governments of countries across the globe are promoting district heating projects. They are providing subsidies, tax benefits, and incentives to district heating service providers. Furthermore, end consumers are getting heat at lower rates than individual heating system rates.

Incentive mechanisms and a strong regulatory framework are instrumental in boosting the adoption of district heating technologies. Policy-based certainty is not only essential for faster market penetration, but also for reinstating investor confidence in a country’s heating sector. Overall, regulatory mechanisms and incentive schemes are expected to play a key role in fostering capacity additions in district heating and cooling sectors in the near future. Thus, governments of countries around the world are aiming to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

District Heating Market: Prominent Regions

In terms of value, Asia Pacific dominated the global district heating market in 2020. The region is likely to remain highly lucrative during the forecast period, owing to the presence of high demand for space heating and water heating in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea. Governments of countries in Asia Pacific are investing significantly in the development of district heating projects, which include district heating plant and transmission and distribution systems. This is projected to boost the demand for district heating in the near future. Furthermore, steady economic growth, rapid urbanization, and improvement in standard of living are key factors driving the demand for heat in Asia Pacific. This, in turn, is augmenting the district heating market in the region.  

Europe was another lucrative region of the global district heating market in 2020. Supportive government policies toward business sustainability programs and increase in usage of renewable energy are some of the major factors boosting the demand for district heating in the region. Russia is the leading country of the district heating market in Europe. Russia is one of the leading countries in the world, in terms of the number of district heating systems installed. It has more than 18,000 district heating systems.

North America also accounts for key share of the global district heating market. The U.S. was the leading country of the district heating market in North America in 2020. The usage of district heating system has been increasing for the past few years, and it is expected to rise in the near future owing to growth in awareness about lowering greenhouse gas and carbon emission. The market in the U.S. is expected to expand significantly due to increase in renewable energy activities in the country. The U.S. has the largest solar energy production capacity in the region.
