China Electric Vehicle Air-conditioner Industry Report, 2017-2021
With exemption of purchase tax and full launching of preferential policies including central and local fiscal subsidies, NEV sales witness explosive growth. As a standard configuration of a car, air-conditioning system also experiences strong development with China’s demand for EV air-conditioners reporting 516,300 units in 2016 as per one air-conditioner for a car, a year-on-year surge of 40.7%.
Affected by the “subsidy fraud” scandal, China’s EV output and sales will suffer a decline in growth rate but still maintain a higher pace over the next couple years, creating an estimated demand of 1.1524 million air-conditioners in 2021, a CAGR of 17.4% during 2016-2021.
The market of air-conditioners for large and medium-sized buses is highly concentrated with major players including Songz Automobile Air Conditioning, Zhengzhou Kelin Motor Vehicle Air Conditioning, etc. Songz serves carmakers including BYD, Nanjing Golden Dragon Bus, Ankai Bus, and Zhongtong Bus, while Kelin mainly provides EV air-conditioners for its parent company Yutong Bus.
The market of air-conditioners for electric passenger cars is lowly concentrated with key market participants including Nanjing Aotecar New Energy Technology, Denso (Toyota Industries), Sanden Huayu Automotive Air-Conditioning, Xiezhong International, Valeo, and Hanon Systems. Foreign-funded companies are still technologically superior. As the first company launching electric air-conditioners in the world, Denso has applied its products to EVs and HEVs made by Toyota and other companies with compressors coming primarily from Toyota Industries. Sanden Huayu Automotive Air-Conditioning adopts “battery, motor, and electronic control” technology for electric compressors which have already been used in auto models like BAIC E150 EV, SAIC Rowe, and Riich M1. Nanjing Aotecar New Energy Technology provides mainly scroll compressors and aims at electric heat pump (EHP) air-conditioning compressor. Moreover, the company acquired Air International and Mudanjiang Foton Automotive Air Conditioner in recent two years, not only enriching product line but also realizing technology complementarity.
Passenger car air-conditioners are mostly sold to carmakers as standard configuration with characteristics of fierce competition, relative scattering, and lower profits; by contrast, bus air-conditioners are directly supplied to public transport and automobile transportation companies with stronger customer stickiness and gross margin of up to 40%.
