Flexible Heater Market

New product launches and acquisitions to widen their global presence and increase their share in the global Flexible Heater Market

The flexible heater market is estimated to be USD 945 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 1,356 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2018–2023. The factors such as a wide range of applications and rising demand from several industries are driving the growth of the flexible heater market. Flexible form factor, technological advancements, launch of innovative products, and high adoption of flexible heaters in medical applications are also driving the market toward significant growth.

The key players such as NIBE Industrier (Sweden), Honeywell International (US), Omega Engineering (US), Watlow Electric Manufacturing (US), and Smiths Group (UK) have adopted growth strategies such as new product launches and acquisitions to widen their global presence and increase their share in the global flexible heater market.

NIBE Industrier is one of the leading companies in the global flexible heater market; its leading position can be attributed to its constant focus on acquiring prominent companies in the heating solutions market such as Hemi Heating, BriskHeat, Gaumer Company, HT S.p.A., Hotwatt, Heatron, and Marathon Heater in the last 3 years. For instance, the company strategically acquired Gaumer in December 2017 to become the leading electric heating systems supplier in North America. The combination of Gaumer’s product development activities and NIBE’s presence in Europe is expected to lead them to significant synergies and growth opportunities in the global flexible heater market. The acquisition of HT S.p.A. in May 2017, added another well-known brand to its European Element business, providing cost synergies and commercial advantages to the NIBE Group. Similarly, the acquisition of BriskHeat and Heatron represents another key step from NIBE to become the leading electric heating supplier worldwide. The company offers various innovative products through its 3 business areas: Climate Solutions, Element, and Stoves. In January 2018, NIBE acquired BriskHeat, which further became a part of NIBE Element business segment. Founded in 1949 and annual sales of USD 39 million, BriskHeat has ~650 employees and manufactures cloth-heating jackets for the semiconductor, composite, petrochemical, plastic, and consumer product industries.
