Rising Demand and Industrial Applications to Drive the Portable Air Conditioners Market

The International Energy Agency (IEA) published a report that estimates that the demand for efficient cooling systems and air conditioners is likely to triple by the end of 2030. Considering the increasing use of air conditioners in the residential as well as commercial sectors around the world, the demand is expected to surge and boost the growth of the portable air conditioners market.

Also, increasing use of electricity for air conditioners may result in the imposition of strict energy efficiency standards on portable air conditioners in the near future. Considering the needs for cooling systems and their environmental implications, demand for an energy-efficient portable air conditioner is expected to increase significantly in the upcoming years.

In addition, providing a cooler workplace boosts the working efficiency of employees, which is generating needs for spot-cooling appliances such as portable air conditioners. Owing to the health-related benefits of using portable air conditioners, its demand is increasing in commercial organizations. Also, spot-cooling appliances play an important role in various manufacturing processes, which is boosting demand for portable air conditioners in the industrial sector. Increasing demand for energy-efficient and direct-cooling appliances in the residential as well as commercial sector is driving the growth of the portable air conditioners market.

Discovery of HCFC Alternatives to Influence Manufacturing Strategies of Market Players

Government organizations across the world, such as EPA (the United States Environment Protection Agency) and European Commission are developing some regulations to control the air pollution caused due to some refrigerants used in air conditioners. Hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) are commonly used in air conditioning systems.

However, the EPA recognizes HCFC-22 as an Ozone-depleting substance, and has imposed some rules associated with the release of this refrigerant under Section 609 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The imports and production of HCFC-22 will be phased out by 2020-end, and it will be banned by the end of 2030 by the U.S. government. Similar regulations and rules are being imposed by the European Commission as well.

These stringent regulations on the use of HCFC as a refrigerant are encouraging manufacturers in the portable air conditioners market to discover its substitutes. Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) developed by EPA approved of the use of Ozone-safe HCFCs and other alternatives to HCFC-22 in air conditioning systems.

Manufacturers in the portable air conditioners market are investing more in R&D to come up with efficient and safer alternatives to HCFC-22 to curb HCF emissions. Even though refrigerants with around 700 GWP such as R32 and R452B are being used in small or portable air conditioners, ultimate alternatives to HCFCs have not been discovered yet. Increasing investments in R&D to find substitutes to HCFC-22 is an emerging trend in the portable air conditioners market.
