October 2019

Saudi Arabia’s heat pump market is poised for solid growth in the next six years with its revenues projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5 per cent by 2025, said a report by 6Wresearch.

Several upcoming government initiatives such as Saudi Arabia National Vision 2030, National Renewable Energy Program and National Transformation Plan 2020 are anticipated to strengthen the residential and commercial sectors in the country, paving the way for the growth of heat pump market over the coming years, according to the report.

The diversification of the economy along with growing hospitality and healthcare sectors would drive the kingdom’s heat pump market, stated 6Wresearch in its new report titled “Saudi Arabia Heat Pump Market (2019-2025).”

Moreover, immunisation of non-oil sectors would lead to equitable growth in multiple sub-sectors of the economy in the country which would also propel the heat pump market during 2019-25.

Upcoming commercial sector projects such as Red Sea beach resort in the hospitality segment and King Faisal Medical City in Abha in healthcare segment are expected to increase the medical as well as leisure tourist footfall in the country, thus, boosting the growth of construction, healthcare and hospitality industries across different regions of the country, said the report.

Kanchan Negi, the research analyst, research and consulting, 6Wresearch, said: “As a result of the government initiatives, several heat pump manufacturing companies are bringing new technologies in their product portfolio such as combination of heat pump with thermal solar panel to make their product more environment friendly and energy efficient.”

Chhavi Malpani, the research analyst, research and consulting, said: “Several government initiatives such as Saudi Vision 2030 and National Transformation Plan 2020 have set the target to increase the private sector contribution from 40 per cent to 60 per cent and enhance the share of non-oil exports in the economy from 16 per cent to 50 per cent by 2030. The increased role of private players would lead to setting up of more private hotels and hospitals, and thus increase the demand for heat pumps in the
region.”

Apoorva Sawhney, Research Associate, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, said: “Heat pump with rated capacity upto 10 kW would see high growth in near future owing to their widespread application in the residential sector.”
