Split Air Conditioning Systems under Scrutiny for Spreading Coronavirus

Despite increasing awareness about proper ventilation in residential and commercial spaces, split air conditioning systems are under scrutiny for spreading the COVID-19. In a study published by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), it was found that a pre-symptomatic customer at a restaurant in China apparently infected other customers due to air swirling by air conditioners. Such findings are influencing the growth of the split air conditioning systems market.

On the other hand, poor demand and supply sentiments are causing a slowdown in the split air conditioning systems market. Since air conditioners fall under the category of luxury goods, customers are hesitating before purchasing non-essential goods. There is a growing awareness about having 100% outside air or close to 100% outside air in commercial and residential spaces.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Split air conditioning systems capable of providing fresh air are leading to less risk of recirculating coronavirus throughout buildings. However, the drawback to running 100% fresh air is the cost, which means the incoming air has to be heated in winter and cooled in summer, and may lead to high-energy costs. Hence, manufacturers in the split air conditioning systems market are increasing their R&D muscle to develop units that deploy energy-saving features to reduce the carbon footprint. The merchant shipping industry is boosting the demand for split AC units. The flexible installation of these AC units is preferred in residential buildings where space is limited.

Split Air Conditioning Systems Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global split air conditioning systems market for the historical period of 2017, 2018, and 2019, and the forecast period of 20212031, increasing spending on research & development and generating awareness among consumers regarding the product are expected to accelerate the split air conditioning systems market across the globe
  • Split air conditioning system consists of two separate units: a compressor located outside and an inside air outlet unit. Unlike a system that requires a series of ductwork networked throughout the ceiling, split air conditioners rely on a set of pipes to connect the outdoor to the inside air unit and hence, are referred to as a ductless split air conditioner installation. This is expected to increase the demand for split air conditioning systems across the world during the forecast period.
  • In terms of revenue, the global split air conditioning systems market is expected to reach value of US$ 202.35 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Split air conditioning systems have the highest energy star rating that not only enables the system to be more energy efficient, but also helps to keep the environment clean and lower the monthly power bill by consuming less energy. Thus, demand for split air conditioning systems is expected to increase across the world.

Manufacturers of Split Air Conditioning Systems Working on Technological Innovations, Developments to Improve Global, Regional Market Share

  • A large share of companies opt for technologically advanced and convenient products. Manufacturers are undertaking upgrades that emphasize on energy efficiency of air conditioners, portable designs, and separate split-air conditioning systems for residential and commercial sectors, and more compact designs. This is expected to drive the overall growth of the split air conditioning systems market.
  • Split-air conditioners provide numerous advantages over standard air conditioners, one of which is their silent operation. The compressor and the fan that cools the condenser are key components of an air conditioner that produce the greatest noise. The compressor and fan for the condenser are situated outside the room being cooled in a split system (unlike a window unit), removing the primary source of noise. Furthermore, with a split system, consumers have the freedom to install it anywhere they like, eliminating the need to restructure the room to accommodate the system. All these factors have resulted in an increase in demand for split air conditioning systems throughout the world, and the market is anticipated to rise at a significant rate during the forecast period.
  • Several commercial businesses such as restaurants, offices, retail stores, and hotels are installing split air conditioning systems to lower their electricity consumption and monthly electricity bill, which is expected to drive the split air conditioning systems market during the forecast period
  • Preference for split air conditioning systems has been rising due to changes in lifestyle and increasing stringent government regulations on the environment
  • However, high installation cost is a hindrance to the market. Split air conditioners need a professional for their installation, which increases the installation cost. The high product cost, installation cost, and maintenance cost is expected to restrain the split air conditioning systems market over the next few years.
  • Manufacturers are investing and establishing production bases in developing countries, as hot climate, rise in population, and increase in disposable income are likely to increase the demand for split air conditioners in developing countries. The opening of production bases in developing countries further helps in reducing the cost of split air conditioners in these regions, thus creating lucrative opportunities for the split air conditioning systems market.

Increasing Demand from Asia Pacific

  • The split air conditioning systems market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a fast-paced CAGR, as it is a manufacturing hub for consumer goods and electronics, and a market of almost 1.2 billion households
