Stringent regulatory norms toward emission reduction coupled with growing adoption of sustainable energy technologies will foster the solar district heating market growth. Torrid climatic conditions owing to global warming along with introduction of green building codes and standards will propel the industry growth. In 2018, the U.S. EPA proposed GHG emission regulations for modified, new and reconstructed power plants. The proposed rule has replaced the 2015’s Carbon Pollution Standard for new plants which had established NSPS to limit carbon emissions from fossil fuel-based power plants.

Rapid development of urban areas across the emerging economies on account of improvement in standard of living, demographic changes and rise in disposable income will propel the business outlook. In addition, accelerating investments toward industrial and construction sector along with increasing global energy demand will positively influence the product adoption. According to the United Nation statistics, in 2018 the urban population constituted 55% of the global population and will grow to 68% by 2050.

Technological advancements in product design and development, lower thermal losses, energy efficient and sustainable heating source are some of the key features which will augment the industry growth. Large potential of solar thermal as a key source to provide energy and heat to various district and communities on both small and large scale has provided favourable opportunities for the industry players for expansion.
