Outdoor heater allows people to stay outside and get warm in winter. In outdoor environment, convection takes away the heat in the form of hot air. All such technologies release various portions of radiant heat as their total output. The device emits radiant heat, which is absorbed by objects and people, which further raises their temperature and provides warm environment. Outdoor heaters are of various types, such as ceramic or quartz electric lamps, gas heaters, fire pits, and wood brining chimeneas. Such heaters run on electricity, gas, or propane fuel. Outdoor heaters use natural gas as a fuel source and transfer fire into infrared heat, whereas electric outdoor heaters run on electricity and produce heat by energizing an emitter. 

Market Scope and Structure Analysis


The outdoor heaters run on gas and electricity. Gas heaters are used to provide more efficient heating without the use of electricity. Without needing an outlet, such heaters are portable and can be fixed at required location. As a result, gas outdoor heaters are more practical and effective option for a variety of applications. Furthermore, propane-fueled heaters provide superior warmth and can cover a larger workspaces such as restaurants and hotels. Outdoor heaters are freestanding, tabletop, wall mounted, and hanging. Freestanding heaters have the advantage of being portable and can be placed in any location. The base prevents the heater from falling over and is used to store a gas tank if it is a propane heater. The heat source is extended upward by the pole, resulting in higher heat coverage. If there is a lack of space, wall-mounted heaters are a great alternative. They are electric and use infrared light to generate heat. They come with wall-attached brackets and are tilted up or down to point the heater in the desired direction.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic ceased the production of various products in the outdoor heating industry attributed to the global lockdown. This hampered the growth of outdoor heating market from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2021.
  • COVID-19 affected the sales of outdoor heating in the end quarter of 2021 and is anticipated to have a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
  • The major demand for outdoor heating was previously noticed in giant manufacturing regions, such as North America, Europe, Asia- Pacific, and South America, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for outdoor heaters.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Outdoor heating manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain during the COVID-19 health crisis.
  • Outdoor heating manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce. 

Top Impacting Factors

The outdoor heating market is experiencing significant growth due to high demand from catering and hospitality sectors. Many hospitality and catering service providers are focusing on installing these heaters in their facilities to make their infrastructure ready for winter and comfortable for their customers. The leading manufacturers in this industry are interested in developing electric-powered outdoor heating devices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from propane/gas-powered patio heaters. In addition, various hospitality service providers are expanding the outdoor capacity of their rooftop garden pubs and restaurants. For example, according to Andrew Rigie, executive director of the New York City Hospitality Alliance, there are 10,500 drinking and eating places in New York City alone that provide outside dining. Rise in popularity of outdoor dining and existing initiatives by food service providers are expected to increase the demand for outdoor heating units in the region. 

Furthermore, leading market players currently serving the market are focused on developing a diverse product portfolio that integrates advanced technology with unique products.
