Growth in construction and manufacturing activities boosting the sales of tankless water heaters
Emerging economies with significantly large population such as China, India, and South Africa are witnessing robust growth in construction activities. Long term strategic government plans and initiatives, coupled with positive industrial outlook of various business sectors, are anticipated to be the prime factors driving growth in construction and manufacturing activities in such emerging economies. Steady raw material prices, increasing disposable income, and favorable schemes related to home loans are factors expected to promote home owners to invest on purchasing new homes, which is estimated to further drive growth of the global tankless water heater market over the forecast period.
Government policies promoting energy efficient systems are helping drive growth of the global tankless water heater market
Government initiatives to achieve sustainability goals by promoting energy efficient systems are factors driving growth of the tankless water heating market. The minimum energy efficiency standards recommended for home appliances by governments all over the world are creating new growth opportunities for energy efficient and sustainable solutions, such as tankless water heaters. The energy saving capability of tankless water heater can be witnessed by its high Energy Factor (EF) rating, in view of which special rebates and tax concessions are provided for appropriate tankless water heating equipment.
In April 2015, as a part of the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA), The U.S. Department of Energy issued new energy standards for water heaters. These standards necessitate higher Energy Factor (EF) ratings, which is further driving demand for new energy efficient heater products such as condensed tankless water heaters.
Estimated decline in prices of tankless water heaters in the near future to further spur the market growth
Large scale manufacturing has been witnessed in the water heater market in recent years, primarily due to activities such as capacity expansion, mergers, and acquisitions of prominent tankless water heater manufacturers by other manufacturers, which is helping to lower the overall cost of tankless water heaters. While price is expected to be the most dominant decision making factor in the water heater selection process, large scale manufacturing is estimated to be another major factor driving growth of the tankless water market, as it will create an opportunity for price-conscious middle class population in the near future.
Growth in demand for solar water heating systems may restrict the demand for tankless water heaters
Solar-based water heating systems are considered to be a low maintenance and cost effective technology as after sales operational cost is minimum as compared to other types of water heating systems. High initial capital investment and productivity are considered to be the major restraining factors for growth of the solar water heating systems. Besides, the recent government policies to promote sustainability by providing subsidies and rebates are expected to further slower growth of the global tankless water heaters market in near future. Recent developments in the solar water heating technology as well as large scale manufacturing are helping in steadily lowering the cost of solar water heating systems as compared to the tankless water heaters systems.
Global Tankless Water Heater Market, by Technology
Condensing segment accounted for approximately 60 percent in global tankless water heater market value by end of 2017, and expected to exhibit fastest growth. The condensing segment is expected to remain dominant over the forecast period and anticipated to account for 68.8% of the market, gaining a significant market share by the end of 2024. Condensing type tankless water heaters are more energy efficient when compared with non-condensing tankless water heater which is gaining significant penetration in emerging economies.
