Insights on market segments

Based on HVAC type, cooling category accounted for larger market share of 59.3% in 2018 in Australia. Australia’s sub-tropical climate in most of its areas is the primary factor behind the dominance of the cooling category. Some of the other factors that boost the growth of the cooling market includes improving economic conditions, rising per capita income, and global warming. As cooling or air conditioning is increasingly becoming a necessity, air conditioner (AC) manufacturing companies are continuously working on providing cheaper and efficient systems which, in turn, is providing steady growth to the market.

Room AC was the most widely used type of cooling equipment in the Australia and New Zealand HVAC market. Australian room ACs market is expected to advance at a CAGR of 6.0% during 2019–2024. This is based on the versatility of room ACs with applications in both residential and light commercial buildings. The replacement of aging equipment in existing structures and increasing installation rate for central ACs in new buildings would continue to drive the overall sales.

Based on heating equipment type, Australia and New Zealand market has been categorized into furnaces, heat pumps, boilers, and unitary heaters. Among these, heat pumps were the most popular heating equipment type in Australia in 2018. The ease of compatibility with various sources, low thermal loss, and high operational efficiency of heat pumps is driving the heating equipment market at steady growth.

Commercial segment was the largest end-user of HVAC systems in New Zealand. Construction spending on accommodation buildings including hotels, motels, and boarding houses, in Auckland was increased by $212 million in 2018, a 78.0% year-over-year (YoY) growth as compared to 2017. Since HVAC systems are the integral part of buildings, the market for these systems in the commercial segment is further expected to register high growth rate during the forecast period.

Rising number of commercial and residential projects to drive the market

The rising number of residential and commercial projects is a major factor propelling the growth of the Australia and New Zealand HVAC market. This can be attributed to the growing population and increasing construction industry in Australia and New Zealand. The construction market in New Zealand is expected to reach over $41 billion by 2023, as compared to $34 billion in 2016. For instance, in the country, Commercial Bay in Auckland, consisting of office tower with space of 39,000 square meters and 120 retail shops with space of 18,000 square meters is under-construction; the project is expected to be completed by April 2020 and would cost around $690 million.
