Global Fan Market Forecast and Trends


Growth Drivers 


Technological advancements in electrical devices

The modern advancements in electrical engineering are getting efficient and effective under varying operating conditions which have various advantages with more diversified services. Different engineering approaches have been used to raise the collection and distribution efficiency of the fans. The aesthetic improvements in fans with the help of a sophisticated technology leads to low power consumption. Additionally, remote control power technology for fans is also getting developed across several regions. These technological advancements would benefit the global fan market by generating more demand and sales during the forecast period.


Increasing demand for fans in the residential sector

The fan market is exhibiting increased demand for fans on account of the growing construction sector, primarily residential. Several developing countries including China, India, Mexico, Indonesia, Philippines, Nigeria, and others are posting several housing projects on account of the growing urban population. The market is expected to gain traction from rising investment by developing nations in infrastructure development, rapid urbanization, and increased spending on infrastructure in the coming years. The middle-income group segment accounts for major demand for fans and would continue to dominate during the forecast period as well. 




Increasing raw material and labor cost 

The factor that can impact the fan market is the concern about raw material prices and labor costs. Like most other products, the law of supply and demand directly governs the cost of raw materials. When the supply of certain raw material gets high, raw material costs also increases. The supply chain and the distribution process are also likely to get impacted by the rise in raw material cost. Thus, high material and labor costs would impact the manufacturing and production of fans in the market.


Impact of COVID-19 in the industry


The World Health Organization (WHO) now considers the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a pandemic. Developing countries are particularly at risk as COVID-19 due to a reduction in the labor force, affect economies and livelihoods as well as a reduction in production operations. Due to the high infection rate and adverse impact on public health systems, various governments have enforced nationwide lockdowns significantly impacting manufacturing supply chains, trade, and related services. Players are currently considering digital solutions that would enable them to serve the community and provide new opportunities to do business. Considering that most of these industries have been impacted due to the lockdown, it is expected that the demand for fans would also get impacted going forward due to disruptions in the manufacturing and supply chain of the global fan market. 

Production and operation, and infrastructural development activities, have slowed down on account of the spreading of coronavirus, which is further anticipated to impact the demand for fans. Asia Pacific is anticipated to get highly affected by the spread of COVID-19 because of the pandemic in China, Japan, and India. However, with the expected arrival of vaccines by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2021, the market is forecast to bounce back, with demand majorly coming from the Asia Pacific region.
