Heat Pump Water Heater Market Dynamics

Driver: Reduction in CO2 Emission

The production and consumption of energy lead to the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is released in substantial amounts through the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Many countries are aiming to reduce their primary energy demand due to the increasing CO2 emissions and implement policies to restrict the emission of greenhouse gases. Heat pump water heater is one of the most promising technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A heat pump water heater offers an energy-efficient way to provide heating through aerothermal and geothermal technologies. Exhaust air, groundwater, and surface water (lake, river, or pond) are the other examples of commonly used heat sources. Heat pump water heaters take the ambient heat from air, water, and ground at low temperatures and increase the water temperature level through energy input, mostly from electricity. To heat the water, air source or water source heat pump uses 66 to 80% of the heat from renewable heat sources in the environment and 20 to 33% electrical energy for the heat pump compressor. Hence, carbon emissions associated with energy consumption and generation can be reduced significantly by using heat pump water heater systems instead of fossil fuel-based systems. This is driving the increase in the number of installation of heat pump water heaters in residential, commercial, and industrial segments.

Restraint: Lack of awareness regarding benefits of heat pump water heaters in developing and underdeveloped countries

The awareness regarding energy efficiency, cost efficiency, and environmental benefits of heat pump water heaters is low among all end user segments. This is because they are typically perceived to be expensive, which acts as a restraint for market penetration in developing as well as underdeveloped economies. There is also a lack of awareness regarding the opportunities that heat pump water heaters provide for energy conservation and reduction of CO2 emissions.

According to a report published by the United Nations Environment Programme, there is a lack of awareness among the contractors regarding the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for heat pumps. Thus, the lack of awareness of heat pump technology across the entire supply chain (technicians, consultants, engineers, contractors, and end users) is a barrier to the adoption of heat pump water heaters in developing and underdeveloped countries.

Opportunity: Integration of Iot with heat pump water heaters

Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled heat pump water heater systems are expected to offer real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and remote diagnostics for heat pump water heaters. IoT-enabled heat pump water heater systems consist of smart thermostats that help in monitoring environmental changes and communicating with the heat pump water heater equipment. Technologically advanced software enable heat pump water heater systems to leverage data for continuous improvements in efficiency and energy-savings. For instance, building management systems (BMS) involve the installation of sensors, software, a network, and a cloud-based data store. Their functions include the management of boilers, chillers, pumps, air handling units, rooftop units, heat pumps, VAV boxes, radiators, fan coil units, exhaust fans, and security & safety operations. Such systems help facility managers to easily manage heat pump water heater systems, thus saving time and cost. Integration with IoT helps in tracking the abnormalities in heat pump water heaters, subsequently reducing system failure. Thus, the integration of IoT with heat pump water heaters is providing significant opportunities for the growth of the market.

Challenge: High installation cost

Heat pump water heater systems are used to increase the energy-efficiency, reduce energy costs, and lower the carbon emissions in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Heat pump water heaters are of two types: aerothermal heat pumps (air source heat pumps) and geothermal heat pumps (ground source heat pumps). Air source heat pump water heaters are more common, as they are less expensive and efficient enough to service most homes and small commercial buildings. Geothermal heat pump water heaters are typically costlier to install because of underground installation. High-density polyethylene pipes are required to be put in the ground, which takes a team of specialists at least three days to install the pipes and the entire system, although they are more efficient and can service bigger buildings.

The installation cost of heat pump water heater equipment for residential, commercial, and industrial applications depends on various factors. For instance, in the residential application, the installation cost of all heat pump systems depends on the size of homes, additional ductwork, type of equipment, and British Thermal Unit (BTU) value of the equipment. The cost of installation of a heat pump water heater also depends on the complexity, type, brand, and size of the heat pump. Thus, the high installation cost is a challenge that can hamper the growth of the heat pump market.

By type, the air source segment is the largest contributor in the heat pump water heaters market during the forecast period.

The air source segment is estimated to be the largest- segment of the heat pump water heate market, by type, from 2020 to 2026. The demand for air source heat pump is growing majorly in the residential sector owing to its low installation cost and environmental friendly technology. They are mainly used in Asia Pacific owing to the fact that countries such as China, Australia, Thailand, and New Zealand are focusing on limiting their carbon footprint resulting from the use of fossil fuels.

By storage tank capacity, the up to 500 LT segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Heat pump water heaters falling under this category are compact and hence, are easy to install. They provide ample hot water for almost all small commercial applications and residential sector. Hence, water heaters with this capacity are suitable for less hot water requirement applications in small commercial establishments and residential sector that includes homes and multi family buildings. Small individual heat pump water heaters of up to 500 liters capacity are used in the hospitality sector for holiday homes and motels as they ensure interruption-free availability of hot water for bathing, personal laundry, etc. applications.

By rated capacity, the 10–20 kW segment is expected to be the largest contributor during the forecast period.

The 10–20kW segment is estimated to dominate the market from 2020 to 2026. In the residential sector, the requirement of instant hot water has been rising at a significant rate. This led to the deployment of low-powered heat pump water heater to cater to this instant hot water requirements majorly for residential sector. Heat pump water heater with 10–20 kW rated capacity are easy to use, offer high operational efficiency.

By refrigerant type, R410A segment is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

The R410A is expected to be the largest market from 2020 to 2026. R410A is a low-pressure gas that is stored in copper coils. When incorporated with copper, it absorbs the heat that passes through various copper components. R410A is a gas which is used as a refrigerant in HVAC for heating and cooling applications. It used in heat pump water heater as it does not contribute to ozone depletion and is non toxic in nature.

By end user, residential sector is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

The residential segment of the heat pump water heater market, by end user, is expected to contribute the largest share in the heat pump water heater market during the forecast period. The adoption of heat pump water heaters is increasing in the residential sector, majorly due to its energy-efficiency technology and various government initiatives in the form of subsidy or tax benefit offered in order to enhance the demand for heat pump water heater.

Asia Pacific is expected to account for the fastest growing market size during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the heat pump water heater market during the forecast period as owing to the increase in the use of renewable energy and energy efficient products. Several leading players in the heat pump water heater market such as A.O. Smith Corporation, Midea Group, RHEEM Manufacturing, and Mitsubishi Electric have their manufacturing facilities in countries such as China, India, and Thailand.
