Based on the component, the report categorizes the global HVAC control systems market into the following segments:

  • Sensors
  • Controlled devices
  • Controllers


The HVAC control systems market by sensors is responsible for generating over 40% of the overall revenue and is expected to retain its lead over the forecast period. Sensors are used to measure and detect changes in temperature, humidity, occupancy or airflow, and pressure,” says Bharath Kanniappan, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for automation research.

Sensors act as a link between the HVAC systems and end-users, with advanced sensors capable of communicating with thermostats, mobile applications, and the Internet. These sensors can also assist building owners in optimizing their energy use and minimize the cost incurred due to HVAC systems. Additionally, many vendors are heavily investing into enhancing the sensors, which adds a significant amount of revenue to the market.

Controlled devices

The rise in the number of buildings requiring various floor level and controlled devices for monitoring the performance of HVAC systems will drive the demand for the market. Smart home automation is another key factor driving the market for advanced controlled devices. Smart thermostats that can integrate residential HVAC units with home automation systems will witness a rise over the forecast period. Vendors are currently focusing on introducing advanced and innovative controlled devices capable of streamlining the operations of HVAC units.


Standalone or networked controllers are installed in buildings to manage the HVAC controls and act as the central processing unit of the entire HVAC system. HVAC controllers analyze the change detected by sensors, compares it against set parameters, and finally provides the output through the controlled devices,” says Bharath.

Standalone controllers constitute more than 75% of the market segment, and are traditionally deployed to monitor, control and regulate various paraments such as temperature, pressure, air flow, and relative humidity of an HVAC system. Smart controllers will gain increasing prominence over the forecast period, but standalone controllers will remain the more popular segment.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Honeywell International
  • Johnson Controls
  • Schneider Electric
  • ABB
  • Cylon
  • Trane
