In 2016, China’s rotary compressor market was depressed in the first half of the year due to a large air conditioner inventory. However, growth occurred during the second half of the year as the real estate market recovered, and the air conditioner market enjoyed growth for five consecutive months.
According to JARN, the market scale of rotary compressors in China reached 107.3 million units in 2016, indicating 12.1% year-on-year growth. However, inverter type sales fell by 4%. The dominant situation secured by several manufacturing giants became even more accentuated.
