The development prospect of the heat pump industry is a very meaningful topic. A heat pump is a clean and efficient heat transfer device, and its main applications include heating, hot water, drying, etc. It is one of the most valuable energy-saving and carbon-reduction technologies in the world in the 21st century, and the prospect of industrial development is very broad.
Under the European energy crisis, heat pumps have become the preferred heating method. By 2030, the sales CAGR in Europe/China will reach 26%/15%+. In my country, under the goal of “carbon neutrality”, heat pump heating technology has also been valued and promoted. At present, various heat pump technologies such as air source, water source, and ground source in my country are constantly innovating and improving to meet the needs of different regions and occasions.
In short, the heat pump industry has huge market potential and social benefits, and deserves our attention and support.
Which fields will have the greatest demand for heat pumps in the future?
The fields of demand for heat pumps include household, commercial, industrial and agricultural, etc., mainly involving heating, hot water, drying, etc. Among them, the European market has the fastest growing demand, stimulated by the dual carbon targets and the energy crisis. The domestic market is also huge, benefiting from the promotion of carbon neutrality goals and clean energy policies. Which areas will have the greatest demand for heat pumps in the future may depend on factors such as climate conditions, energy structures, and consumption habits in different regions.
What is the difference between the demand for heat pumps in the north and the south?
First of all, the climatic conditions in the north and the south are different, and the winter in the north is colder, with more snow and ice, which puts forward higher requirements on the heat exchange effect and cold resistance performance of the heat pump. Therefore, in the north, it is more suitable to use heat pump products specially designed for low temperature conditions, such as side blowing type and jet enthalpy increasing type.
Secondly, the energy structure of the north and the south is different. The north is dominated by centralized heating, while the south is dominated by decentralized heating. Therefore, the north is more suitable to use high-power, centralized heat pump products, such as ground source heat pumps, water source heat pumps, etc.; while the south is more suitable to use low-power, decentralized heat pump products, such as air source heat pumps.
Finally, the consumption habits of the north and the south are different. The north has a stronger demand for heating, while the south has a stronger demand for hot water. Therefore, the north is more suitable to use heat pump products that can provide constant temperature heating services; while the south is more suitable to use heat pump products that can provide rapid water production services.
