Japan HVAC Systems Market Size, Share, and COVID-19 Impact, By Product Type (Heating, Ventilation, Cooling), By End-Use Type (Automotive, Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Others), and Japan HVAC Systems Market Insights Forecasts to 2030

Industry: Automotive & Transportation


Market Overview

HVAC refers to the application of numerous technologies to regulate the temperature, humidity, and air quality in a closed environment. Its objective is to provide suitable indoor air quality and thermal comfort.


HVAC systems play an important role in residential structures such as single-family homes, apartment complexes, hotels, and senior living facilities, as well as medium-to-large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and hospitals, as well as transportation such as cars, trains, aeroplanes, ships, and submarines, and in marine environments where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity using outside air.


In Japan, central heating systems are commonly used in houses or apartments, large buildings, hospitals, and other facilities. The concept of heating/cooling the only room where people are has taken root in Japan. Based on this concept, individual A/C units are typically installed in each room. Daikin and Mitsubishi are two significant businesses that are growing internationally.

Driving Factors

As the commercial sector in Japan consumes the largest portion of the country's energy, HVAC systems play a vital role in encouraging building energy efficiency. Japan's HVAC systems market expansion is anticipated to be fueled by the growing demand for cutting-edge heating, ventilation, and cooling systems. Additionally, increasing the productivity and wellness of the occupants might benefit from HVAC system efficiency improvements.


Thermally driven air conditioners have become more popular as a result of the increase in green-labeled goods brought on by growing environmental awareness. Manufacturers offer cutting-edge solutions, like Hitachi Global Life Solutions, Inc., Daikin Industries, Ltd., and others. These air conditioners are energy efficient since they use solar energy in addition to natural gas. Along with better lifetime cost and efficiency, further advantages include reduced maintenance, autonomous management of pipes for heating and cooling, and automatic changes to current demand.


Restraining Factors

The shortage of qualified HVAC technicians is expected to have a negative impact on market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, high installation costs, frequent maintenance, high energy consumption, and other operational difficulties limit the market expansion of Japan’s HVAC systems.


COVID 19 Impacts 

The COVID-19 outbreak has had hampered the growth of the HVAC equipment industry due to country-wide lockdown and delays in manufacturing and production of HVAC equipment used in residential, commercial, and industrial applications.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the cooling segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. 

Based on the product type, the Japan HVAC Systems Market is segmented into heating, ventilation, and cooling. Among these, the cooling segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. The cooling market is divided into several categories, including room air conditioners, unitary air conditioners, chillers, coolers, cooling towers, and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems. The main cause of the increase in coolers demand is the end-use industries expanding the use of process cooling. For example, process chilling is widely employed in the food and beverage industries for the pasteurisation and baking of food. Huge amounts of heat are produced as a result of this.


  • In 2022, the commercial segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 35% over the forecast period.

Based on end-use type, the Japan HVAC Systems market is segmented into automotive, residential, commercial, and industrial. The two-wheeler segment dominates the market with a 35% market share over the forecast period, due to the rise of awareness of the environment, potential cost savings, and improvements in technology. The growth of the commercial HVAC industry is anticipated to be significantly shaped by a number of trends, from automated systems to green and smart technology.
