Product Overview

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. It controls and maintains the humidity, temperature, and purity of the air in a closed space. By regulating the heating and cooling in cars, it gives comfort in a variety of weather conditions. The driver has the option of manually or automatically controlling the HVAC system.

Market Highlights

Automotive HVAC market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 6.3% in 2031.

The market for automotive HVAC is expanding as a result of rising consumer disposable income, rising demand for personal vehicles, rising automotive production, rising R&D expenditures, and government restrictions.

Automotive HVAC Market: Segments

The Passenger Car segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

The Automotive HVAC market is classified on the basis of Vehicle Type into Passenger Car, Commercial Vehicle, and Electric Vehicle. The segment for passenger cars has the largest market share and is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate over the projection period. The variables that are driving up demand for this segment include things like rising disposable income and the availability of different financial options.

The Automatic segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

Based on Technology, the Automotive HVAC market is fragmented into Automatic and Manual. In 2018, automatic systems will command a sizeable portion of the car HVAC industry. One of the key drivers of industry growth is the rising need for high levels of cabin comfort and usability. Temperature and humidity sensors must be installed inside the car cabin for automatic systems to change the temperature based on the needs of the passengers.

Market Dynamics


Flourishing Automotive Industry and Demand for Luxury Cars

Growing consumer discretionary income in both developing and industrialized nations has led to a significant demand for high-end luxury vehicles, which has increased automotive production. The demand for HVAC systems in the vehicles has increased as a result of integrated features such as automated climate control and air purification features. The market for automotive HVAC is also expanding as a result of rising sales of passenger automobiles brought on by consumer desire for personal vehicles and rising concerns over their comfort and safety.

Increasing Research and Development and Government Regulations

The growth of the market is being driven by a surge in research and development activities in the automobile industry to improve the technological capabilities of the manufacturers. Along with rising sales of electric vehicles, the quick adoption of environmentally friendly refrigerants and the development of lightweight, compact HVAC systems with energy-efficient performance to meet strict government restrictions will further accelerate the growth of the automotive HVAC market.


High Maintenance and Replacement Costs

Due to the high expenses involved, consumers bear a heavy weight of HVAC system maintenance and part replacement. Additionally, the noise that vehicle HVAC systems make makes customers uncomfortable and restrains the market's expansion.
