1. World Compressor Market in 2016 - OVERVIEW
Thanks to a scorching summer in 2016, air conditioner inventory was digested by a large sales volume and the room air conditioner (RAC) compressor market has recovered to the level of the previous year. However, impacted by a gloomy global economy, growth of compressors for light commercial and commercial air conditioning applications fell short of expectations. In order to reduce food waste and improve food safety, the cold chain equipment market maintained growth in newly industrialized countries, and demand for compressors for refrigeration applications increased but at a decelerated growth rate in 2016.
The global market of rotary compressors came to 140 million units, indicating 11.2% year-on-year growth in 2016. The rotary compressor market scale in 2016 by region amounted to 107.3 million units in China, 18.9 million units in Southeast Asia, 4.1 million units in India, 3.2 million units in Japan, 2.6 million units in the Middle East, 2.2 million units in Brazil, 2.0 million units in Europe, and 1.5 million units in the United States.
The global market volume of scroll compressors reached 14 million units, indicating 3.6% growth in 2016. Demand for variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems boosted growth in the global scroll compressor market. An increasing number of scroll compressors are being applied to ATW heat pumps. Use of scroll compressors is also increasing in refrigeration applications thanks to their high performance and compact structure.
The global screw compressor market amounted to 139,000 units in 2016. Moderate performance was seen in the medium and small sized building construction sector and the refrigeration market in China, indicating slight 1.2% growth. The European market saw a 5.6% drop. The U.S. market decreased by 1.8%.
Generally speaking, reciprocating compressors for air conditioners saw sales fall, but sales for refrigeration applications have continued to rise year after year. Demand for semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors reached 178,000 units in 2016, an increase of 3.3% compared with 2015. Growth was seen in cold storage applications.
The world market scale for centrifugal chillers is estimated at 17,000 units in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 8.2%, thanks to the rapid development of the magnetic bearing market. China and the United States are the two largest centrifugal chiller markets, and production is also concentrated in these two countries.
