Appliances that use various energy sources for providing hot water are called as water heaters. Water heaters have been broadly utilized in a number of domestic applications and within manufacturing industries such as food and beverages processing, chemicals, and thermal power plants. They use numerous sources of energy including solar, geothermal, electric, and gas for heating and supplying hot water. The growing construction and manufacturing industries, rising urbanization, and the growth in the number of strategic alliances of numerous players will stimulate the water heater market.
In addition, the rising demand for constant hot water supply is encouraging manufacturers to deliver low-maintenance and energy-efficient water heating products, thus augmenting the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing popularity of renewable power generation technologies and the ease of installing high-power water heaters are further impacting the market positively. On the other hand, the rising focus on compliance of standards and high cost of installation may impede the growth of the market in forthcoming years.
