Similar to most industries within the construction sector, the Heating and Air-Conditioning Contractors industry has been quite volatile over the past five years. Moreover, demand for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) services is projected to heat up over the next five years. Pent-up demand across the construction sectors, which began to slack quickly in 2012 and 2013, is forecast to boost demand for new HVAC installations, the industry's primary service segment. Improving per capita disposable income and the growing popularity of energy efficient systems that also lower operating costs for businesses and households will drive demand for installations in existing structures. Growing demand for automated systems from commercial clients will also be a crucial revenue driver, especially for larger industry players.
This industry comprises companies that primarily install and service heating, ventilation, air-conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration equipment. Operators perform tasks that include new installations, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs. Plumbing and related activities are not included in this report (IBISWorld report 23822b).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
