Market Overview

The Saudi Arabian heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) market size was $2,476.1 million in 2020, and it is expected to showcase a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period (2021–2030). The increasing population of the country, coupled with the rising disposable income, will be a key driver for the HVAC industry in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the growing number of infrastructure development projects and rising religious tourism activities in the country are expected to impact the market positively.

The HVAC industry has witnessed a significant COVID impact across different stages of the value chain. Some of the key countries, which are significant exporters to Saudi Arabia and have also witnessed a negative COVID impact, include China, the U.S., Brazil, Russia, India, Italy, Spain, and other Western European nations. With the announcement of countrywide lockdowns, the industry has faced a significant loss on account of the disruptions in the supply of electronic components, such as compressors, embedded systems, and fan units, as well as refrigerants. Additionally, the restrictions imposed on pilgrim visits during the holy month of Ramadan significantly affected the industry.

Saudi Arabia HVAC Market Competition Analysis

Owing to High Demand for New Equipment, Equipment Category Held Larger Share during Historical Period

The equipment category held the larger share during the historical period (2015–2020), based on offering. The high demand for new equipment in the country is due to the extreme climatic conditions. Additionally, the growing development of commercial spaces, such as metro stations, expansion of the King Abdulaziz International Airport, and other construction projects, are driving the sale of HVAC systems in the kingdom. Furthermore, Riyadh, the Saudi capital, is expecting to open the world’s largest turnkey metro project, worth $23 billion, by 2021. The project will feature a powerful cooling system adaptable to external heat, which will increase the demand for HVAC equipment in the market. 

Commercial Sector Held Largest End-User Share on account of Growth in Hospitality Industry

The commercial category held the largest share in the Saudi Arabian HVAC market in 2020, based on end-user. This was mainly on account of the rising number of commercial offices/buildings and growing hospitality sector. Additionally, the religious tourism sector in the country is set to prosper in the coming years, following infrastructure investments of over $50 billion in and around Makkah and Medina.

Owing to Rampant Infrastructure Development, Western Saudi Arabia Held Significant Market Share

The western region of Saudi Arabia held the largest market share in 2020. This can be attributed to the major infrastructure development projects in Jeddah, Makkah, Madinah, and Tabuk. Among these megaprojects are Qiddiya, NEOM City, Amaala, and Riyadh Green, which will boost the demand for HVAC systems and the related services once complete. Many of these developments are being done in the backdrop of the Saudi Vision 2030, via which the government intends to diversify its economy, on account of its strong reliance on the oil and gas industry.

District Cooling Systems Are Key Trend in Market

The usage of district cooling systems has been observed as one of the key trends in the Saudi Arabian HVAC market. District cooling systems produce hot and chilled water at a central plant and distribute the energy to numerous buildings for heating and cooling. As a result, the systems eliminate the requirement for separate systems for each building. Further, the district cooling system consumes almost 50% less electricity as compared to a conventional cooling system, which reduces the overall energy expenses of consumers. In Saudi Arabia, almost 70% of the power is consumed by air conditioning systems. Hence, customers are focusing more on energy-efficient air conditioning equipment, which is further driving the demand for district cooling systems in the country.

Saudi Arabia HVAC Market Drivers

Due to Increase in Infrastructure Spending by Government, Demand for HVAC Systems Rising

The increase in the spending on infrastructure, which has resulted in the rising construction activities in Saudi Arabia, is supporting the growth of the HVAC industry of the country. In Saudi Arabia, there are several ongoing projects of metro railway and other pieces of commercial infrastructure. Moreover, the kingdom aims to completion of the first phase of the NEOM megacity project, worth $500 billion in total, by 2025.

Owing to Growing Hospitality Sector, HVAC Market To Have Bright Future in Kingdom

Due to its religious significance, Saudi Arabia is one of the most-visited tourism destinations globally, which is primarily boosting the hospitality industry here. Due to the rising visitor count, several international hotel chains are increasing their presence in the country. HVAC systems offer comfort by helping control the temperature in a room as per requirement; thus, they are an essential part of modern hotels. As a result, the growing hospitality industry is boosting the demand for HVAC equipment and services in Saudi Arabia.
