A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in a vehicle is used to control the internal temperature of the vehicle cabin. It includes three subsystems, namely, heating, cooling, and air conditioning, that work together to provide purified air to the vehicle cabin, ensuring thermal comfort for drivers and passengers. It controls the air temperature, inspects the moisture content in the air, and eliminates excessive humidity from the circulating air. Well-established companies, such as Audi, Mercedes, and BMW, focus on customized and consumer-friendly HVAC systems. For instance, the BMW 6 Series supports automatic air conditioning, including air distribution for driver and passengers, fogging sensor, and automatic climate control system.
The automotive HVAC consist of the primary component unit that includes compressor, condenser, evaporator, pressure regulating devices, orifice tube, thermal expansion valve, receiver-drier, and accumulator. The compressor is considered the core component of the overall automobile HVAC system. It is a belt driven pump, which is attached to the engine. The compressor helps in compressing and transferring of refrigerant gas. A condenser is used to help radiate heat and is normally located in front of the vehicle. When the hot compressed gases are introduced on the top of a condenser, they are cooled instantly and after the cooling is complete, they condense and exit from the bottom of the condenser as a high pressure fluid. An evaporator is a heat absorber component of the HVAC system. The main purpose of an evaporator is to remove the heat from inside the vehicle and dehumidify the environment within it. Pressure regulating devices are meant for controlling the evaporator temperature by regulating the refrigerant pressure and flow into the evaporator. The automotive HVAC system market trends are decided on the basis of forecast from 2020 to 2027.

HVAC system not only contributes to a better thermal environment but also improves the efficiency of air conditioning; thereby, reducing fuel consumption. Efficient HVAC systems ensure appropriate vehicular temperature levels, which can lead to enhance vehicle passenger comfort, fuel economy, and others. Also, the rise in use of automatic A/C which automatically controls cabin temperature regardless of the outside air temperature and humidity boost the growth of the automotive HVAC market. Thus, rise in demand for thermal comfort coupled with increase in penetration of automatic HVAC system in automobiles are anticipated to propel the growth of the automotive HVAC market globally.
Rise in safety & comfort due to adoption of HVAC systems
Growth in demand for safety, comfort, and aesthetic features has led to several technological advancements in vehicles. HVAC systems ensure comfortable ride for the driver as well as the passenger. In addition, the system contributes toward defrosting windows, demisting windshields, and dehumidifying air, which improve the comfort of the passengers. The safe and clean running of the system eliminates risk factors in future. Thus, increase in safety due to adoption of HVAC systems by providing safe and favorable conditions inside the vehicle cabin is anticipated to propel the automotive HVAC market growth.
Increase in vehicle production
Original equipment manufacturers in the developing regions such as China, India, and Japan, are adapting to the changing regional and segment patterns of supply and demand with respect to their production & supply base footprints, supply chains, and product portfolio. In addition, rise in urbanization along with increase in population boost the demand for vehicles among consumers. For instance, North America is the home for largest vehicle producers in the world, including General Motors and Ford, which account for 25% of the global vehicle production. Moreover, emergence of global potential automobile manufacturers including General Motors and Volkswagen AG concentrating their plants in China through joint ventures with local manufacturers is expected to enhance the HVAC demand and drive the growth of the HVAC system market globally.
High maintenance cost
HVAC system unit is highly costly to integrate and expensive to repair in case of a failure. Installation of HVAC unit in a vehicle results in increase in the overall cost of the automobile. An automobile HVAC unit consists of compressor, condensers, evaporators, and other components. To keep these components in good working condition, regular maintenance is required, which is significantly expensive. Compressor is the costliest component in the systems and requires proper refrigerant and lubrication levels to reduce the risk of premature compression failure. Thus, high maintenance cost of the overall components of HVAC system is anticipated to hinder the growth of the global automotive HVAC market.
Adoption of eco-friendly refrigerants
The installation of eco-friendly refrigerants such as R744/CO2 in automobiles would not only foster the growth of the automotive HVAC system market but also help in saving the environment. Substitute refrigerants such as R744 and CO2 would increase fuel efficiency and reduce pollution from vehicles, which would benefit the environment. For instance, on May 2017, Sanden Automotive Components Corporation has completed industrializations and development of compressors for air conditioning systems in cars using CO2 refrigerant. Thus, adoption of eco-friendly refrigerants in automobiles holds a remarkable growth opportunity for the key players operating in the market.
