On the basis of vehicle type, passenger cars generated higher revenue in comparison to commercial vehicles, accounting for over 67% of the market revenue in 2015. Automakers tend to provide passenger cars and commercial vehicles with faster cooling and fuel efficient HVAC systems. As per European Union regulations, all the vehicles in Europe should have HVAC systems with non-polluting refrigerants, with a GWP (global warming potential) lesser than 150, effective from January 2017.
Automotive HVAC systems can be operated manually or automatically. Automatic HVAC system dominated the market in 2015, contributing around 59% of the total revenue. Automatic climate control system inside the vehicle cabin is to be set for once and the HVAC system adjusts the temperature automatically depending on the outside temperature of the vehicle. Such factors would drive the adoption of automatic HVAC system, particularly in passenger cars.
Based on geography, Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue-generating region, accounting for over 46% share in 2015, in terms of revenue, owing to high vehicle production in China, Japan, South Korea, and India. Asia-Pacific is estimated to dominate the market witnessing a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period, owing to increasing adoption of eco-friendly refrigerants and large-scale production of commercial and passenger vehicles.
