Global Air Handling Unit (AHU) Market to Grow at 5.8% During 2022-2027, Supported by Rising Demand for HVAC Systems

Published on Apr 13, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Air Handling Unit (AHU) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global air handling unit market reached a value of US$ 9.2 Billion in 2021. An air handling unit (AHU) is used for regulating and reconditioning air as a part of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. There are majorly three types of AHUs available in the market, namely, terminal, makeup air, and rooftop units. This equipment maintains the indoor air quality by removing exhaust air from an enclosed space. An AHU involves a metallic frame that contains filter racks, blowers, dampers, heating or cooling elements, and sound attenuators. It is installed in a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air throughout the building before returning to the AHU for reconditioning.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.  

Global Air Handling Unit Market Trends:

The significant growth in the HVAC industry is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. AHUs form an integral component of the overall air conditioning system, which is escalating their demand across the HVAC industry. Moreover, the increasing consumer awareness regarding the hazardous effects of toxic air pollutants, including the onset of various medical and respiratory disorders, has enabled the worldwide adoption of central air filtration systems. Additionally, leading players are advancing air conditioning technology by integrating sensors and 3D printed units, which is driving the market toward growth. Other factors, such as the increasing need for energy-efficient solutions, the emerging trend of smart cities, and rapid industrialization, especially in developing economies, are catalyzing the market growth further. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during 2022-2027.
