Among these segments, the commercial sector led the market due to increasing industrialization. Moreover, the growing business and corporate sectors globally have led to the construction of large numbers of commercial buildings and offices, driving the growth of the commercial smart air conditioner market. Also, the benefits of smart AC, such as providing comfort according to users’ convenience and energy conservation, are attributable to the commercial sector’s growth. Additionally, smart air conditioners benefit the commercial segment by reducing energy consumption and improving environmental quality. Additionally, rapid urbanization boosts industrial output, stimulating the demand for smart air conditioners in the commercial sector globally.

Impact of COVID-19 on Smart Air Conditioner Market

The COVID-19 created havoc in the world, with coronavirus cases surging rapidly. As offices were shut down and companies shifted to working from home, the demand for commercial services decreased exponentially. Due to the prolonged lockdown, residential demand increased as people remained confined within their homes.

During the initial phase of the pandemic, numerous companies have reported difficulties procuring components from China, Japan, South Korea, and other markets. As restrictions were eased towards the end of 2020, the market showed some signs of recovery. However, the second wave of the COVID-19 in 2021 halted recovery, and countries once again went under lockdown. Vaccination drives have aided market recovery. However, the market may take a few years to reach pre-COVID levels.
