The electric compressor circulates a refrigerant to remove heat from the cabin, while the condenser dissipates the heat generated by the process. The air is transported into the cabin by the blower and air vents after being cooled by the evaporator. Given the limited power provided by the vehicle's battery, these systems are created to be energy-efficient. Additionally, they frequently include intelligent controls and cutting-edge sensors to enhance performance and reduce energy usage. Therefore, EV HVAC systems play a crucial role in providing a comfortable and controlled interior climate for electric vehicle occupants while maximizing energy efficiency.

Increase in demand for thermal system and automatic climate control features in automobile

Thermal comfort in vehicles is considered as one of the most important factors when purchasing a vehicle. The installation of HVAC system ensures an ambient thermal environment for the driver as well as the passenger. The HVAC system not only contributes to a better thermal environment but also improves the efficiency of air conditioning; thereby, reducing fuel consumption.

Efficient HVAC systems ensure appropriate vehicular temperature levels, which can lead to enhanced vehicle passenger comfort, fuel economy, and others. Also, the rise in use of automatic A/C which automatically controls cabin temperature regardless of the outside air temperature and humidity boosted the growth of the electric vehicle HVAC market. Thus, rise in demand for thermal comfort coupled with increase in penetration of automatic HVAC system in automobiles are anticipated to propel the growth of the electric vehicle HVAC market globally.

Rise in safety and comfort due to adoption of HVAC systems

The growth in demand for safety, comfort, and aesthetic features have led to several technological advancements in vehicles. HVAC systems ensure comfortable rides for the driver as well as the passenger. In addition, the system contributes toward defrosting windows, demisting windshields, and dehumidifying air, which improves the comfort of the passengers. The safe and clean running of the system eliminates risk factors in future. Thus, increase in safety due to adoption of HVAC systems by providing safe and favorable conditions inside the vehicle cabin is anticipated to offer growth opportunities for electric vehicle HVAC market manufacturers.

Electric Vehicle HVAC Market by Vehicle Type

Increase in vehicle production

Original equipment manufacturers in the developing regions such as China, India, and Japan, are adapting to the changing regional and segment patterns of supply and demand with respect to their production & supply base footprints, supply chains, and product portfolio. In addition, the rise in urbanization along with increase in population boosts the demand for vehicles among consumers.

Moreover, emergence of global potential automobile manufacturers including General Motors and Volkswagen AG concentrating their plants in China through joint ventures with local manufacturers is expected to enhance the HVAC demand and drive the growth of the HVAC system market globally.

Environmental effects of refrigerants used in HVAC system

The refrigerant plays a crucial role in vehicle HVAC system. The vehicle HVAC system uses hydrofluorocarbon, chlorofluorocarbon, and hydrofluoro-olefins (HFO) refrigerants. However, these refrigerants are harmful to environmental sustainability, may lead to ozone depletion, and exhibit global warming potential (GWP). For instance, in March 2022, Indian government import policy of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) has been revised from 'free' to 'restricted', subject to NoC (no objection certificate) from the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change," the directorate general of foreign trade (DGFT).

Moreover, these refrigerants affect the air quality, ecosystem, and consumer health & safety. Thus, various government authorities are implementing stringent regulatory framework to minimize environmental pollution and global warming. For instance, in Australia, The Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) levels are mandatory requirements for certain products (including air conditioners, refrigerators & freezers) manufactured in, or imported into, Australia and are specified in the relevant Australian Standards. Thus, vehicle manufacturers need to redesign their HVAC systems with environment-friendly refrigerants, which is anticipated to affect the growth of the electric vehicle HVAC market.

Production of cost-effective HVAC systems

Installation and maintenance of the HVAC components such as compressor, evaporator, condenser, and others are costly. For efficient working of the HVAC system in automobile proper level of liquids such as lubricants, refrigerants, and others and regular maintenance is required. Thus, production of cost-effective HVAC systems for electric vehicles provides lucrative growth opportunity for the players to increase their electric vehicle HVAC market share.
