Asia Pacific Condensing Unit Market Trends

  • Adoption of inverter compressors: The adoption of inverter compressors is having a major influence on the Asia Pacific condensing unit market. Inverter compressors provide significant energy savings compared to traditional fixed-speed compressors by varying the compressor speed according to load. This allows them to run more efficiently at partial loads and save up to 30% of energy. With rising electricity costs and growing focus on reducing carbon footprint across Asia Pacific, inverter compressors have become very popular. Government policies are further supporting this shift. According to IEA, countries like Japan and Australia have mandated minimum energy performance standards and energy labeling programs which make products with inverter technology more attractive for consumers. Several utility rebate programs and financial incentives are offered on the purchase of inverter air conditioners. For example, Japan's Top Runner Program that sets rolling efficiency standards saw the market share of inverter room ACs increase from 16% in 2015 to over 70% in 2020. This demonstrates how policies can drive significant technology adoption.
  • CO2- and ammonia-based condensing units: CO2-based condensing units are gaining widespread acceptance as a substitute for traditional hydrofluorocarbon (HFC)-filled models. CO2 has innate properties making it more sustainable - it has zero ozone depletion potential and a global warming potential that is 1 unit, as opposed to HFCs which can be over 1000 units. This has led to significant policy support for CO2 technology across Asia Pacific nations. For instance, Japan introduced tax incentives in 2022 for businesses adopting CO2 condensing units, with the goal of avoiding over 380,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year according to the Ministry of Environment.
  • Demand for tropicalized units: Manufacturers are producing special tropicalized units designed to operate optimally in hot and humid climates of Southeast Asia. These condensing units feature larger condenser surface areas, head pressure controls, moisture resistant coating and other features to facilitate efficient cooling despite soaring temperatures and high moisture levels. Countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand present key markets for tropicalized condensing units. The expanding food and beverage industry in the Asia Pacific region, including a focus on maintaining proper food preservation standards and developing cold chain logistics, requires high-performance refrigeration equipment. Tropicalized condensing units are ideal for these applications. A shift towards the adoption of inverter-based condensing units which are more energy-efficient and can operate reliably under varying load conditions, which is crucial in tropical climates. Partnerships between local distributors and international manufacturers to supply tropicalized condensing units to cater to the specific needs of the regional markets.
