Reduced investment and maintenance costs: a major market driver
Reduced investment and maintenance cost is one of the major factors driving the global heat interface units market. Installing gas boilers in individual dwellings in a multi-dwelling apartment complex includes various costs. Moreover, during installation, the gas lines are required to be calibrated for the right BTU levels. To prevent any compromise with the integrity of the pipe and the possibility of explosions, it is important to ensure that all the procedures are carried out properly, which requires trained professionals that add to the costs.
Installing a central boiler plant eliminates the need for connecting individual dwellings to gas lines, resulting in significant cost savings. HIUs only require a centralized boiler and hot water risers. Therefore, there is no need for a piping network running through the buildings; this results in reduced costs and brings down the future costs for repair and maintenance.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for tools and components research, “The installation of HIUs is relatively easier than individual boilers and gas pipelines which mitigates the need for trained and qualified installers which in turn, leads to significant cost savings. Also, the absence of flue pipes also eliminates the need for ventilation routes. Therefore, the substantial reduction in costs associated with the adoption of HIUs is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.”

Growing demand for smart homes and development of smart cities: emerging market trend
The smart home concept has been gaining popularity with consumers seeking to improve their lifestyles by enhancing convenience through electronic devices. Development of smart homes is an evolutionary concept in the residential and real-estate sectors, with the primary aim to make life more convenient, comfortable, sustainable, and secure.
Home appliances are also making use of artificial intelligence to predict the consumer preferences based on the historical data accurately. The increase in the number of working couples with dual incomes in cities across the world is the key driver for smart home adoption. The smart home market is prevalent in the Americas and Europe, with developing economies in APAC, such as India, China, and Singapore, also adopting the concept. The global smart home market is expected to exceed USD 152 billion by 2021, which augurs well for the growth of the HIU market.
Global market opportunities
In terms of regional dominance, EMEA led the global heat interface units market, followed by the Americas and APAC in 2017. The extreme climatic conditions in Europe make it a huge market for heating and cooling systems. This is also a key reason for the huge potential for HIUs in the region.
The Americas is expected to witness the greatest increase in its market share during the forecast period, as compared to the other two regions, while APAC is expected to witness a significant dip of over 1% in its market share by 2022.
