Research and Markets: Solar Water Heater (SWH) Market in India 2014-2018 - Emerging Demand for HWHs

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fkrjjp/solar_water) has announced the addition of the "Solar Water Heater (SWH) Market in India 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Solar water heater or SWH comprises a solar panel, inverter system, and a water storage tank. The sunlight that falls on the solar panels is used to heat the water inside the insulated storage tank either through a pump or directly through the thermosyphon principle. In the thermosyphon principle, fluid circulation is based on natural convention, where warm water rises and is replaced by cold water. Some of the advantages of SWHs over CWHs are: cost-effectiveness and reduced dependence on other fossil fuels. SWHs are generally installed on the roof of a building where the intensity of sunlight is maximum throughout the day.

One of the key trends in this market is the increased demand for hybrid water heaters. A hybrid water heater is the combination of an SWH and a traditional water heater. The combination of the two technologies makes the hybrid water heater more efficient and reliable.

According to the report, one the major driving factors of the market is the growing demand for SWHs from hotels, restaurants, hospitals, and small clinics or dispensaries, which have traditionally used either electric water heaters or LPG for heating water. The use of SWHs helps in reducing electricity bills and LPG usage.

Further, the report states that installation and maintenance costs of SWHs are relatively high compared with other conventional water heaters. An SWH requires maintenance every two to three years. Periodic inspections and maintenance are also needed to keep them operationally efficient. Consumers are generally reluctant to invest in SWHs because of the high installation and maintenance costs.
