Efficiency in air conditioning is a concern for many governments. For instance, the Super-Efficient Air Conditioning program was announced to be launched in February 2019 by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL). The initiative aims to encourage the use of energy-efficient technologies and result in a decrease in energy usage. The Indian Ministry of Power hopes to meet the country’s Cooling Action Plan and Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Phase-out Management Plan by 2032 with this program.

Due to the quickening rate of urbanization and the growing need for commercial space, the commercial segment is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% over the projection period. Commercial air conditioning systems are enormous and often located on the rooftops of buildings like hotels, shopping centers, theatres, sizable restaurants, and offices because this is where energy consumption is at its maximum. Therefore, it is projected that replacing and retrofitting these units in order to save energy will lead to an increase in the use of AC throughout the commercial market.

Residential air conditioner sales are anticipated to expand strongly throughout the projection period as a result of the shifting climatic conditions.

In 2021, North America accounted for more than 25% of the market’s total revenue share. It is anticipated that replacement sales will drive development in the North American market as well as other developed markets worldwide. The government’s increasing promotional efforts to promote the use of energy-efficient air conditioning systems and lower energy consumption are also anticipated to support the expansion of the regional market.

The COVID-19 pandemic had the greatest effect on the Middle East and Africa, where demand for air conditioning equipment fell by more than 12% in 2020. However, the region has recovered owing to significant international events like the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which encouraged new construction.
