A new report from Transparency Market Research, titled ‘Offshore Air Handling Units - Global Industry Analysis, Market size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020,’ states that the global offshore air handling units market is expected to progress at a rapid pace due to the widespread adoption of various air handling units.
Air handler or air handling units are devices utilized to circulate and regulate air as a part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning system (HVAC). Air handler units are large metal box containers enclosing heating and cooling elements, a blower, filter racks or chambers, dampers, and sound attenuators. Primarily, air handlers connect to the ductwork or ventilation system to effectively distribute the conditioned air via the offshore unit. At times, AHUs discharge and return air directly to and from the served space without ductwork. For local use, small air handlers such as terminal units, an air filter, blower, and coil are used. Large air handlers, known as makeup air units (MAU), condition 100% air drawn from outside. Air handlers are specifically made for outside use, especially on roofs, and are known as rooftop unit (RTU) or packaged unit (PU).
The availability of many offshore air handling units and the introduction of new ones are predicted to propel the global market for offshore air handling units until 2020. Waste-heat-powered air handling units are growing in importance across the globe due to the rising focus on solar power as an effective renewable energy source. Some of the noticeable factors expected to propel the global offshore air handling units market are the growing interest to conserve energy and the rising demand for air handling units from developing nations. The implementation of the Kyoto Protocol to tackle climate changes is also predicted to benefit the global offshore air handling units market in the years to come.

As compared to electric chillers, air handling units require larger cooling tower capacity and greater pump energy. The high cost of offshore air handling units is the major factor expected to restrict the growth of the global offshore air handling units market in the next few years. However, leading players in the global offshore air handling units market are focused on introducing low-cost air handling units.
The global offshore air handling units market is segmented on the basis of energy supply, region, and effect. By effect, the global offshore air handling units market is classified into single effect, double effect, and triple effect. In single effect air handling units, the transfer of fluids takes place through components such as the evaporator, generator, absorber, and condenser. Based on energy supply, the global offshore air handling units market is classified into indirect-fired and direct-fired units.
By region, the global offshore air handling units market is divided into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World. At present, the global offshore air handling units market is dominated by Asia Pacific owing to the rising demand for air handling units from countries such as India and China. Leading players such as Broad Air Conditioning Co., Ltd., Century Corporation, Hitachi Appliances Inc., Carrier Corporation, and Thermax Inc. are expected to introduce advanced air handling units in the global market.
