The global air handling unit market is anticipated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Air handling units (AHUs), also referred to as air handlers or air systems, are central air filtration systems that recondition the air to maintain and regulate the air quality and indoor temperatures. These units are typically made utilizing a metallic frame composed of galvanized steel, aluminum, and other alloy panels. These units are also armed with double-walled panels for energy efficiency, so they are also known as energy-efficient air purifiers. Heating & cooling coils, ventilators, filter chambers, dampers, and accentuates are some of the important elements of the air handling system.

Growth Drivers:

The primary factors driving the growth of this market include the augmenting demand and usage of air handling units across various application sectors around the globe; the soaring pollution levels worldwide; the escalating technological developments in air handling units; the augmenting demand for comfortable living and working conditions; the burgeoning need for energy-efficient air handling unit for quality indoor air regulation; and the increasing launching of air handling units with greater capacities by market players across all regions.

Additionally, the majority of the infrastructures such as offices, buildings, and industries need efficient air handling systems for proper functioning. The surging industrialization and the increasing number of infrastructure projects across the globe are also acting as a significant factor fueling the growth of the air handling units market. With this, the investments made in industrial production is also witnessing a steep surge in many regions. Thus, the rising number of buildings & residences is increasing the demand for air heating and cooling systems. The growing number of infrastructure projects is raising the demand for air handling units, which in turn leads to the significant growth of the overall air handling units market.

Moreover, the number of people affected with various respiratory diseases is spiraling worldwide at a tremendous rate. Conditions such as asthma and lung disease are poised to grow at unprecedented rates due to the rising levels of air pollution. As such, the awareness among consumers regarding the need for quality air in buildings and houses is escalating. Also, their awareness and inclination towards products with environmental and health benefits are surging compared to products without such benefits. This rise in awareness is creating growth in the adoption of air handling units, resulting in the expansion of the global aid handling units market.

Furthermore, other factors such as the growing production of the air handling units; the ever-increasing global population coupled with rising urbanization; the conversion of warehouses and empty buildings into new commercial and residential spaces for tenants leading to enhanced demand for efficient air conditioning systems; and the existence of fewer rules regarding the air handling units industry in the emerging countries are expected to further bolster the growth of the market during the forecast period.

However, factors such as fluctuation in raw material prices; low availability of air handling units in under-developed regions; the presence of low-quality alternatives for air handling units, the dearth of standardization and awareness regarding the benefits of HVAC systems are expected to hamper the growth of the market to some extent during the forecast period.
