“Most” suppliers are optimistic and share the view that the current positive economic cycle is set to continue within the next two years. However, given the fact that business opportunities in emerging countries are depleting and growth is falling in Europe, the US and its solid economy will attract more international competitors.
Raphael Chalogony, General Manager, BSRIA Inc, said:
“The room, packaged, unitary and furnace air conditioning market in the US is also a mature market with most sales coming from replacements and refurbishments. In 2016, sales increased consistently in volume, for residential products, although with different growth rates. The commercial
market for packaged units consists of VRF, rooftop units and close control units.
There was a slight drop in the volume of rooftop units, while VRF grew strongly compared to the previous year. The market for packaged air conditioning was valued at US$17 billion in 2016.
These reports provide a comprehensive analysis of the U.S. market for central plant air conditioning and for the packaged air conditioning markets and provide growth opportunities in both markets.”
