Highlighting the current scenario of HVAC industry and a glimpse of the upcoming event on HVAC, ACREX India 2016
A technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort, HVAC’s goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality.
HVAC plays an important role in the design of medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers, onboard vessels, and in marine environments such as aquariums, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors. HVAC systems have become the required industry standard for construction of new buildings.
Now days most modern buildings use energy-efficient HVAC systems, as a result of rapid growth in the construction and real estate markets worldwide which has a positive influence on the market. Urbanisation and industrialisation have been on the rise in developing countries. There is an increased demand in the HVAC systems due to new constructions in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
Monitoring systems help in tracking the energy consumption of a building while intelligent technology controls the energy output of an HVAC system. For instance, fans used in the heating system of computing systems are switched on only after the computing system reaches the set temperature, making the system energy efficient.
The key growth areas of the HVAC market are the growing population and industrialisation, rising sales of domestic and commercial buildings, increasing construction expenditure, and the expanding purchasing power of the middle class.
The non-residential users of HVAC systems are healthcare and educational institutions, manufacturing and industrial buildings, as well as offices and retail stores. Driving the growth of HVAC systems are the increase in construction activities rapid industrialisation, as well as the need for enhancing energy efficiency in buildings.The major players in the global HVAC market are Carrier, Daikin Industries, Ingersoll-Rand, Johnson Controls, and LG. The other prominent companies in the market are AB Electrolux, Bosch Thermotechnik, Fujitsu, GD Midea, Gree Electric Appliances, Haier, Hitachi, Lennox International, Nortek, Paloma Industries, Samsung, Siemens, and Vaillant Group.
ACREX 2016An event focussing majorly on HVAC, ACREX India will be held at Mumbai where there will be participation from across different countries. ACREX India is growing phenomenally every year and is becoming the launch platform for many international organisations.
Being organised by the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), ACREX India 2016 will be conducted at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in Mumbai. Founded in 1981, ISHRAE organises international and national exhibition, conducts seminars and workshops throughout the country to achieve its primary objective of advancement of the sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration engineering and related services.
This exhibition will also feature diverse Building Engineering Services that include Fire and Safety, Electrical and Plumbing Services Building Automation and the ever growing Cold Chain Industry.
The main topics of discussion would be Air distribution and Heat Load Considerations for Displacement Ventilation Systems, Short Course on Tall, Supertall and Megatall Building Systems Design, Design of cold storage as a part of cold chain, Safe and Save Ammonia Refrigeration Systems.
Some of the players who will be participating in ACREX India 2016 are ALM Engineering and Instrumentation, Danfoss India, Bitzer India, Blue Star, ZIEHL- BEGG India, Motherson Bergstrom, Carrier Airconditioning and Refrigeration.
