BSRIA have commenced a new study on European hydronic heating and cooling controls with separate analyses covering France, Germany, Italy, Poland and UK plus a rest of Europe analysis.
The study will be segmented into both residential and commercial buildings reports, including detailed valve and valve actuator analysis.
According to BSRIA, technology development is resulting in significant changes in the way hydronic heating systems can be controlled in order to make them more efficient and less expensive to run.
BSRIA will provide information on the market size, market segmentation and forecasts for the coming five years.
Market competitive environment and market shares will be also be presented.
Preliminary work and information from other research has revealed the following:
The market can be segmented into a number of market segments
- Hydronics controls including valves and actuators
- System controllers
- Room thermostats
Previous BSRIA research has shown that across Europe the market is worth some Euro 1.7 billion and that the market for these products is over 40 million units unit’s per annum in France, Germany and UK alone.
Against the backdrop of a flat market at best for boilers, BSRIA are expecting a 22% growth over the forecasting period.
The new study aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of market size, segmentation, drivers and will identify the key players by product type in each market.
Products covered in the study include:
Valves: Balancing, Ball, Butterfly Diverting, (including zone), mixing, pressure reducing, manifold, safety, thermostatic mixing, other specialised types.
Radiator valves: TRV (non-electric), TRV (programmable), other radiator valves (MRV)
Actuators: Linear and rotary Valve type, Thermal
System controllers: switches, sensors, weather compensators, multizone controller
Room thermostats: non-programmable, programmable
