HVAC &R Industry is dedicated to bringing efficiency to the built environment. We seek to understand systems, to foster the intelligent use of collaborative resources and to design sustainable HVAC & R systems. We provide leadership in the field by focusing on innovation, seeking advances in technologies by taking a systems perspective.
The HVAC & R market in India is poised for rapid growth due to a number of changes that are taking place in the Indian economy and society, as well as easier availability of A/C & Refrigeration products, which constitutes the bulk of the HVAC & R segment, in the market.
This potential demand from the construction sector (both conventional and green buildings), coupled with the potential to save energy will usher a boom period for the HVAC & R market by 2035, with complete support from the Government to promote energy efficient standards, practices, and technologies and ISHRAE aims to achieve the same in the upcoming years.
