Global Automotive HVAC Ducts Market 2017-2021
About Automotive HVAC Ducts
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is a technology that is incorporated in automobiles. The HVAC system regulates the internal temperature of the vehicle cabin. Automotive HVAC systems comprise refrigeration units, blower motors, actuators, and ducts. HVAC ducts supply air to vehicle-cabin interiors via panel ducts and console-duct systems. The geometry of HVAC ducts is flexible. They are circular, rectangular, or square-shaped and are characterized by complex curves all over their length. HVAC ducts are incorporated with air quality sensors. Once the carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide levels in a vehicle reach the threshold value, the air quality sensors transfer the information to the HVAC system. This is followed by the initiation of the air circulation mode.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive HVAC ducts market to grow at a CAGR of 5.01% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABC Group and TMD WEK.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Development of automatic climate control systems. HVAC units and HVAC ducts form an essential part of the cabin climate control function. To offer comfort to occupants, desirable temperature and humidity levels are set in vehicle cabins. The energy required for the flow of air needs to be minimized for better fuel economy. The associated acoustic noises must be limited as well. To achieve such goals, the designs of HVAC ducts are cautiously evaluated and optimized as part of the vehicle development process.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Mandatory fitment of ACs in trucks. The Government of India has mandated the fitment of ACs in trucks that weigh above 3.5 tons. The mandatory incorporation of ACs in trucks as administrated by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is expected to drive the market for HVAC ducts in the country. The HCVs market in India is rising at a faster pace when compared to other regions. The truck industry in India occupies a market share of approximately 10% in the global trucks market. Thus, governmental mandates that standardize the incorporation of ACs in trucks positively impact the demand for HVAC systems.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Geometrical restrictions. Geometrical restrictions that arise from the specific arrangement of vehicle components restrict the smooth incorporation of HVAC ducts in vehicles. The limited availability of space inside vehicles due to the close arrangement of other components ensures minimal space for an HVAC duct. Thus, the designers of HVAC ducts ensure that their offerings occupy minimal space. However, most designers in the global automotive HVAC ducts market are unaware of the impact of product design on its performance.
