Air ducts are the channels, pipes or passages that are used to convey air across the building. The product is majorly used with centralized heating and air conditioning systems, along with being utilized for delivering ventilation air across a facility. The HVAC systems in a building consist of various equipment such as blowers, air handling units, MV fans, fan coil units, chillers, pumps, etc. These are connected through a network of ducts through which hot, cool or fresh air from HVAC systems is conveyed to different part of buildings. It is also employed to exhaust the contaminated air from building indoors.

Increasing deployment of HVAC systems due to rising construction of offices and retail buildings across the globe will positively increase the utilization of air ducts in such buildings. Increasing implementation of green building initiatives across the globe has made the consumers more aware about the environmental and financial benefits of energy conservation. Increasing environmental concerns and health problems associated with poor indoor air quality has resulted in the formation of Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), which is a rating system for green buildings. In both commercial as well as residential constructions, the requirement for energy efficient systems is necessary, and air ducts play a major role in this. Estimating and designing proper duct networks with use of different materials and shapes could result in huge energy savings for the buildings. Between 2015 to 2018 the LEED certified buildings have generated USD 1.2 billion from energy savings itself. These factors altogether will encourage towards installation of better and efficient ducts with minimum leakage and energy loss over the forecast time period. Rising construction of commercial building in developing nations owing to high investments in service sector will also further the air ducts utilization in coming years.

Increasing adoption of ductless equipment for both heating and air conditioning purposes is likely to hinder the growth rate of the overall product in near future. Ductless air conditioning systems are popularly used in the residential sector, where centralized air conditioning systems would not be cost efficient.

Ducts made by covering wire helix from various plastics are paving their way into the industry. This is mainly due to their flexibility, making them able to snake and fit through narrow passages, corners, and obstacles. This makes them the perfect choice to be installed in residential and smaller commercial buildings, where there are space constraints. The product is deployed for run outs in which metal collars are also used to connect them with supply trunks, plenum and branches that are made from other type of materials such as sheet metal and fiber duct boards. These types of ducts hold around one fifth share of the overall market.

Rectangular shape ducts remain the most common type

Rectangular shape is one of the most common for ducts in the construction industry. These can be adapted to a wide range of height restrictions and can be shipped easily when nested or broken down. The product is majorly used to make main trunks of the HVAC system and it provides flat surface for the branches in system. These are the ideal choices for large duct sections or plenums, which consist of many fittings, as these are easier to assemble as compared to oval and round fittings. It holds a significant air duct market share and will show decent annual growth rate of 2.5% from 2019 to 2025.

Airport and rapid transit to remain the second most popular segment

Airport and rapid transit sector hold around one fifth of the overall market and is expected to show a significant growth rate over forecast timeframe. Countries such as Japan have some of the most modern transportation networks and infrastructures. High-speed trains are operated between all major cities and there are 97 airports in Japan itself. Rising spending capacity and introduction of low-cost airlines in developing countries of south and southeast Asia has resulted in increasing air traffic. To accommodate such air travel demand, various infrastructure investments are done in this sector, including building new terminals and airports.

Developing economies to overshadow the overall consumption with high infrastructure development activities

Developing economies in regions such as Asia Pacific are driving the growth rate of the product. Asia Pacific accounts for more than 35% share in the global air duct market and this is owing to the rapid investments in the infrastructure projects over the past decade. Improving bilateral and cultural ties between the regional countries have boosted the tourism industry along with the hospitality sector. Also, measures taken by the government to improve health services have resulted investment in the healthcare sector. Private investments are also increasing in the regional medical sector, resulting in a sharp increase in the number of hospitals and diagnostic centers in the developing countries. This will have a positive influence on the regional air duct demand.

Large number of local and regional players characterize the competitive landscape

The major industry participants in the air duct market share are M&M Manufacturing, ZECO Aircon Ltd., Hennemuth Metal Fabricators, Tin Man Sheet Metal, Zinger Sheet Metal Co., Set Duct Manufacturing, Turnkey Duct, Sisneros Bros. Mfg., Rubber World Industries, VK Ducting, Hamlin Companies, Linx Industries, Inc., Pinnacle, Ducts, Inc., Masterduct, Inc., D &N Duct, etc. M & M Manufacturing, which is one of the prominent manufacturers in the industry, was acquired by MiTek Industries, a subsidiary of the leading investment firm, Berkshire Hathaway, in 2015.
