LONDON--()--Technavio’s latest report on the air cooler market in India and China provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Air coolers are low-cost, eco-friendly, and energy-efficient alternatives to air conditioners. Air coolers cool air through the evaporation of water and are simple to use. Air coolers operate with maximum efficiency with free flow of fresh air and adequate ventilation. A major advantage that air coolers have over air conditioners is that they are best suited for residences, showrooms, shops, and offices, where doors are opened and closed frequently. Moreover, they consume significantly less amount of electricity without producing harmful emissions.

Increased use of solar air coolers

The rise in requirement is because of the increased population levels and standards of living in countries such as China, Australia, and India. Still, lack of consumer awareness is one of the major barriers to the growth of solar air coolers. Consumers are unaware of these products and their availability. They are also not aware of the long-term cost advantages and environmental benefits associated with the use of solar air coolers as compared to that of conventional air coolers.

“The primary benefit of a solar air cooler is that it reduces the usage of electricity. Factors such as growing population and decrease in solar panel prices have a positive impact on the growth of the solar air cooler market. The major demand for solar coolers is expected to stem from Asia-Pacific due to favorable climatic conditions and adoption of solar air coolers in the region,” says Shikha Kaushik, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on retail goods and services.

Emergence of wall-mounted air coolers

Air cooler manufacturers have come up with the latest model of wall-mounted air coolers. These air coolers have 15 liters (3.96 gallons) of water tank inbuilt in them and do not require an outdoor unit like a split AC. A wall-mounted air cooler is characterized by 10 times lower consumption of electricity than a split AC, merely 250 watts in an hour covering an area of 100 square feet.

“Most air coolers occupy a lot of floor space. Wall-mounted air coolers are designed in such a way that they appear similar to split ACs. These air coolers do not occupy floor space, can work on automatic water fill technology, and can be easily fixed to the wall. This air cooler does not hamper the aesthetics of a house and can adapt to any kind of interior setting,” adds Shikha.

Multi-functional air coolers

Leading air cooler vendor, Symphony, announced the launch of the touch range of air coolers for the residential segment. It offers the benefits of mosquito repellency and has an air purifier attached to it as well. Symphony touch range includes voice assists, a touch screen, and i-PURE technology.

The i-PURE technology consists of bacteria filter, PM 2.5 wash filter, smell and dust filter, and allergy filter for delivering cool and pure air. Symphony launched five different models with capacities ranging from 20 liters to 100 liters (5.28 gallons to 26.42 gallons) for cooling and span over 600 square feet.
