The heating industry is governed by stringent carbon emission norms and building regulations, mandating the adoption of energy efficient appliances. For instance, the European Commission adopted the Energy Efficiency Directive to establish measures and policies to support the European Union reach 20% energy efficiency target by 2020.

Ongoing investments toward green building construction projects coupled with focus toward smart cities programs & initiatives across multiple nations have resulted in the construction of large number of residential & commercial establishments. The underfloor heating systems can be easily installed across new facilities, covering desired areas to minimize heat loss and enable cost-savings. Optimized heating along with significant reduction in the installation time and upfront cost will fuel the industry growth over the forecast timeline.

Ease of operation and low system costs driving the market share of underfloor heating systems across residential establishments

Underfloor heating systems are gaining substantial recognition amongst homeowners. The system evenly distributes heat and works at moderate temperatures, enabling cost-saving and low-power consumption, thereby driving the market demand. Unlike radiators that operate at 600C -700C and cause overheating, it regulates the temperature via sensors and thermostats. The systems are capable of providing zoned heating with the help of Wi-Fi and smart thermostats, enabling up to 15% savings in the heating bills. Safe operation and easy scalability across different floor types are few of the prominent factors favoring the product installation.

Increasing investments toward infrastructure development along with ongoing adoption of stringent environmental regulations to drive the North America industry statistics

The North America underfloor heating market holds immense potential on account of strong growth across the service sector. About 80% of the economy is majorly driven by healthcare, financial services, retail, and technology. Climate change and pollution have become a major concern across the region, leading to the introduction of stringent environment norms. The heating industry accounts for a significant amount of carbon effluents from both residential & commercial properties. The ongoing transition from central space heating systems to underfloor heating systems on account of its low costs will drive the North America business growth.

The rising investments in the construction of multifamily and commercial units across the U.S. and Canada will drive the market growth. The increased spending toward home renovation projects and customer inclination toward designing and home décor will further lead to adoption of radiant heat flooring systems. In addition, the growing adoption of renewables to improve carbon footprint and compliance with government policies will support business expansion. The environment performance of the system can be enhanced by integrating it with solar or clean energy sources.
