Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global air conditioner market for transportation sector: CALSONIC KANSEI, DENSO, Hanon Systems, Keihin, and Valeo.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bergstrom Climate Control Systems, Delphi Automotive, Gentherm, Johnson Electric, MAHLE, Samvardhana Motherson Group, SANDEN HOLDINGS, Sensata Technologies, Shanghai Velle Automobile Air Conditioner, Subros, and Xiezhong International Holdings.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovation in air conditioners for transportation sector. Manufacturers are constantly involved in developing technologically advanced products to meet the expectations of consumers and sustain in the competitive market. Companies, such as Valeo, Hanon Systems, and others, have developed advanced a/c units for transport vehicles.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growth in railway sector. The adoption of air conditioners in rail transport is a key driver for the growth of the global air conditioner market for transportation sector. Since most developed regions, such as the Americas and Europe, have metros and railways that incorporate a/c systems in their network, the demand for air conditioners is expected to increase. In addition, countries such as India and China are planning to invest to develop their railway infrastructure and improve the connectivity and provide ease to passengers.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is fluctuations in raw material prices. The main raw materials used for manufacturing air conditioners are aluminum and steel. The cost of raw materials depends on economic conditions and inflationary pressures. Due to the volatility in raw material prices, the productivity of manufacturers is affected with respect to the number of units required to be produced. When the price increases, vendors bear the excess cost of ownership. However, due to the presence of many vendors in the market, manufacturers cannot afford to pass on the price to consumers, thereby affecting their profit margins.
