According to professional estimates, in 2006, the total sales of heat pumpsolar air conditioning system in China is expected to reach 500 million yuan -5 billion for an industry, and apparently not a big number. However, this does not affect the industry's concern on this product.
Has just started in China
Around 2001, a heat pump water heater industry in the Chinese market faltering start, after several years of work quietly, before and after 2004, the heat pump water heater market, rapid growth, the initial formation of the industrial prototype. According to the International Copper Association statistics, in 2004, heat pump water heater market, an increase of 400%; heat pump water heater industry sales reached 360 million yuan in 2005.
"According to our estimates, in 2006, the industry-wide sales of heat pump water heaters can at least reach 500 million yuan. Larger enterprises, with annual sales of two or three thousand million. Marketing Long Guangdong with the benefit of electrical and adult.
The rapidly growing market is prompting many companies to join. Tianjin University professor Ma too introduced into the heat pump water heater industry around 2002, only Huateng, Yunnan, Jiangsu Huayang, Nanjing Aurora, such as a handful of enterprises, these enterprises from abroad or university has made a number of technical supported. The entry of these enterprises, prompting the industry to a certain progress. The past two years, the shortage of energy in all aspects of the case, the use of air energy heat pump water heater by major manufacturers pay attention to it. The heat pump water heater market has witnessed rapid growth in the number of manufacturers also leaps and bounds from a handful to dozens, including the air conditioning of large enterprises, including Haier, Midea, also have entered into.
The beauty of the relevant responsible person to the "electrical" reporter said, as early as 2003, the United States will start project survey heat pump water heater market in 2004, the United States began production of heat pump water heater products at present, the United States heat pump water heater business annual output value has been more than 30 million yuan. "In the United States, it seems this is a sunrise industry, I believe that this market is great potential for investment in the United States in this regard will continue to increase." The official said.
Similarly, Gree staff privately told reporters after a very long investigation, Gree has initiated development of a commercial heat pump water heater. Haier, the person in charge said, after two years of study, Haier is preparing the establishment of a heat pump water heater production line. Established manufacturers of domestic central air-conditioning Qinghua same side as early as 2004, has been cut into the heat pump water heater market.
In fact, the entry of air conditioning of large enterprises is expected to drive the heat pump water heater market more quickly. Industry insiders believe that, previously to enter the heat pump water heater industry enterprises for the gas appliance manufacturers, solar water heater manufacturers, many companies do not have the technical and financial advantages. Because heat pump water heater and heat pump technology has a certain relevance, Midea, Gree, technology, financial strength, enterprises may change the industry structure.
Industry experts believe that, in accordance with the current rate of development to 2010, heat pump water heater is expected to more than solar water heaters to our residents to use water heaters.
Overseas is a mature industry
In the eyes of Chinese people, the heat pump solar heating water or a new product. But in fact, this product has been developed overseas for many years. According to industry experts, air source heat pump technology as early as 1924 had been invented in a foreign country. However, in a very long period of time has not been fully aware of and use. Until the 1960s, the world's energy crisis broke out, the heat pump water heater only by the full attention of developed countries in Europe and the United States government and enterprises have invested a lot of money for the development of heat pump water heater products, heat pump water heater is relatively mature developed countries in Europe and the United States .
