Segment Analysis

Value of private nonresidential construction
Demand for this industry’s products is linked to new building construction, as new commercial and retail facilities require the installation of new heating and air conditioning equipment.  As a result, demand for this industry’s products moves roughly in line with construction markets.

Value of residential construction
Residential construction is a key market for industry products because new homes are typically built with related systems.  Therefore, an increase in housing construction boosts demand for industry products

Both segments show strong growth through 2021.     


Commercial HVAC Market Segments
HVAC Innovation
ECM Motor Fan and Blower Innovation

A sustainable design was at the core of Shanghai Tower’s development. From the outset, the design team targeted LEED Gold and China 3 Star ratings. The goal of the designers was to create an architectural jewel that was as energy efficient as it is beautiful. The building incorporates wind turbines to high efficiency ECM BLDC motors.
