Central Air Conditioning Systems - A US Market Overview

NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Central Air Conditioning Systems - A US Market Overview

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0490541/Central-Air-Conditioning-Systems---A-US-Market-Overview.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=HVAC

The top 25% of efficient central air conditioning (CAC) models can bear the "ENERGY STAR" label, and, to be eligible, they have to have a minimum SEER level of 14. In addition, the minimum Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) levels for Energy Star® split system models must be 11.5 and for Energy Star® single-package models must be 11.0. Air conditioners bearing the Energy Star® label can be two time more efficient than some existing units. Consumption of energy by the current range of air conditioners is 30%-50% lower than air conditioners of the 1970s for producing the same amount of cooling.

Central Air Conditioning product segments analyzed in this study include Direct Expansion (DX) Central Air Conditioning Systems and Central Plant/Chilled Water Central Air Conditioning Systems (Central Plant AC Systems) also referred as Applied Systems. The report also analyzes the market of the sub-segments of DX Systems – Split AC Systems (greater than 8 kW of cooling capacity), Packaged AC Systems and Heat Pumps; and Central Plant AC Systems – Chillers, Cooling Towers, Air Handling Units and Fan Coil Units.

In terms of unit shipments, Central Air Conditioners in the US are estimated at 4.5 million units in 2010, valued at US$ 9.22 billion. Though unit shipments are forecast to exhibit low CAGR of 1.70% over the 2006-2015 analysis period, shipment value is expected to maintain high CAGR of 5.02% during the same period. This can be attributed to changes in unit prices that vary from year to year, dependent on demand and new technologies. The market for 2011 is expected to touch 4.8 million units valued at US$ 9.7 billion.

The market report includes the complete competitive landscape for CAC market in the United States which comprises market share analysis (2009) for leading market players including Carrier, Goodman, Lennox, McQuay, Nordyne, Rheem, Trane and York. The study analyses these major players with respect to key financials, product listing & analysis, key brands, competitors and production plant locations & capacities. The report also briefly profiles 50 other key market players in the United States.

This 198 page United States market report includes 36 charts (includes a data table and graphical representation for each chart), supported with meaningful and easy to understand graphical presentation, of market numbers. The statistical tables represent the data for the US CAC unit shipments and value of shipments by product segments, sub-segments and by the cooling capacity (Btuh).
