Underfloor Heating Actuator
- The underfloor heating is a type of central heating system for thermal comfort using radiation, conduction, and convection. This system can be employed for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
- The underfloor heating actuator is an important part of underfloor heating system. The actuator operates the opening and closing of the valve on the underfloor manifold according to the signal received by the room thermostat or digital programmable thermostat.
- The underfloor heating system is extensively utilized in cold climate areas to maintain indoor temperature. Increase in demand for advanced and modern technologies, followed by a rise in the number of green building projects is likely to augment the demand for underfloor heating system, which in turn is anticipated to boost the demand for underfloor heating actuator in the next few years.
Key Drivers of Global Underfloor Heating Actuator Market
- Demand for underfloor heating actuator is increasing owing to a rise in urbanization across the globe. Ongoing infrastructure development, majorly across developing countries, is estimated to drive the global underfloor heating actuator market.
- Rise in government regulation to incorporate energy-efficient and sustainable heating solutions is also anticipated to further boost the demand for underfloor heating actuator during the forecast period
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
- Governments of various countries have enforced nationwide lockdowns, as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has disrupted planned underfloor heating actuator projects and have reduced the demand globally. The pandemic has disrupted the supply of essential components, raw materials, and skilled labor in the market, resulting in project delays.
- On February 01, 2021, Siemens released new line of actuators for small valves that are quiet in operation and multitaskers. They possess new features for more energy-efficient and versatile hydronic room applications. The updated SSA actuators, currently, offer more flexibility due to their diverse control possibilities - from analog control to KNX communication capabilities for room solutions and fast integration into connected systems. The new actuators are ideal for use in noise-sensitive areas, such as hotels, recording studios, meeting rooms, and libraries.
Europe to Hold Major Share of Global Underfloor Heating Actuator Market
- Based on region, the global underfloor heating actuator market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
- Europe dominated the global underfloor heating actuator market in 2020, owing to a large installed base of underfloor heating systems in the region. Moreover, the demand for electric underfloor heating is rising to curb pollution generated by traditional heating devices systems. Furthermore, the region is enacting stringent environmental regulations to eliminate carbon emissions by 2050.
- North America is estimated to hold a major share of the global underfloor heating actuator market. Demand in likely to rise owing to climatic conditions and increase in disposal income of the middle class in the region.
- The market in Asia Pacific estimated to be expand at a steady pace during the forecast period owing to a rise in urbanization and infrastructure development in the region. Moreover, a rise in investment in construction and smart cities is likely to propel the demand for underfloor heating actuator in near future.
- The market in Middle East & Africa and Latin America is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period as countries in these regions are developing and hence, witness low investment in infrastructural activities.
