BSRIA announces 2021 European HVAC field device study
In November 2021, BSRIA announced the publication of a series of HVAC field device reports covering commercial buildings in four European countries: Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom, with the geographical scope planned to be extended in 2022.
Markets in Europe progressed unevenly due to different pandemic lockdown start and lifting dates, parts shortages, available stock, access to local production and trade agreements. HVAC valves suffered the most from the weak construction outputs, whereas ventilation and safety applications were prioritised.
In 2021, Germany remained the largest market for field devices despite a decrease in non-residential construction outputs. The UK recorded strong performances for fire safety applications. In France, new building automation and control systems (BACS) regulations pushed sensors sales, and in Italy, the shock caused by the pandemic triggered a significant volume of investment being diverted to products and services for ventilation, air quality and user safety.
The study covered different segments of the industry, providing a detailed quantitative and qualitative assessment of the markets for HVAC valves and actuators, volume control dampers and actuators, fire safety dampers and actuators, and sensors installed for HVAC systems and BACS.
The research covered 2021 macro drivers and disruptors up to 2026 and looked into future trends such as the implications of the move towards IT-centric facility management, convergence and integration of products and services, progression of connectivity in terms of standards and practices.
The European HVAC field device study expands BSRIA’s existing field device research portfolio, which includes the coverage of the US market, published in February 2020, and China, completed in May 2021.
