Underfloor Heating Market Outlook - 2030

The global underfloor heating market size was valued at $4.30 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $8.39 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2021 to 2030. Underfloor heating is a cleaner, smarter way to heat the individual dwelling place. Using radiant heat technology, UFH gently warms the people and objects in the room directly, from the ground up while facilitating much more energy-efficient method. The presence of advantages such as increased energy-efficiency of UFH, low maintenance of electric heating systems, freedom of design, and adaptability of floor heaters and the safety & ease of installation are the major factors driving the growth of the market during the forecast years. 

There are two types of radiant heating—electric and hydronic based system—where both provide heating in a room from the floor to provide efficient warmth. In hydronic systems, hot water runs through the pipes to create heat, whereas electric underfloor heating heats wiring beneath the floor to generate heat. Compared with traditional radiators which can make a room feel chilly at times and too hot at other times, while underfloor heating does not overheat instead it achieves the desired temperature set by the user using the thermostat.

Underfloor Heating Market, By Product Type

The hydronic segment dominates the global underfloor heating market. Hydronic underfloor heating system consists of a network of pipes running under the floor. Hot water heated by a boiler flows through the network of pipes to heat the substrate ad therefore heat the room. It uses water or mix of water and anti-freeze substance such as propylene glycol. It can use a single source or combination of energy sources to help manage energy costs such as combined heat and power plants heated by the natural gas, fossil fuels, electricity, solar thermal and bio fuels. It is much more efficient and with much lower running costs than electric underfloor heating systems, while initial purchase cost of the system will be significantly higher than an electric system and also require regular maintenance. The shifting trends towards the demand for improved living standards and rising awareness among people to reduce bill. Efforts of government and corporate industries towards improving air quality along with increasing demand for high level of comfort will further augment the development of the market.
