In the era of “double carbon”, it is imperative to promote condensing furnaces
Regarding the “double carbon” background, under the policy requirements of energy saving and environmental protection, the condensing furnace will definitely get a broad space for development. However, due to technological progress and the improvement of market recognition, it is a gradual process. Although the advantages of high efficiency and energy saving of condensing furnaces have always been recognized by the industry, compared with ordinary wall-hung furnaces, their overall market size has yet to be explored.
Nowadays, the demand for quality is more and more diversified, the “double carbon” policy is continuously promoted, and the relevant industry standards are continuously improved, etc., all of which have brought new opportunities for the growth of the condensing furnace market. It is imperative to promote the condensing furnace at the right time.
Market Status of Condensing Furnace
Since the condensing boilers entered the Chinese market, the overall market size of condensing boilers (full premixed condensation, flue gas recovery condensation, flue gas recovery + low nitrogen condensation) has maintained a steady growth despite a small base. Some regions have experienced rapid growth in stages. For example, the “Boiler Air Pollutant Emission Standard” implemented in Beijing, the emission limit standard of 30mg/m3 has greatly promoted the development of condensing furnaces in that year. In the first half of 2017, the condensing furnace market achieved a year-on-year growth of 41%. According to the “14th Five-Year Plan” Development Report of China’s Gas Appliance Industry, during the “13th Five-Year Plan” period, the total sales volume of condensing furnaces in the market reached nearly 1.3 million units, accounting for 7% of the total sales volume of the wall-hung boiler market during this period, with an average annual growth rate was 11%.
Among them, the main reason for the small market share of condensing furnaces is that on the one hand, the initial technology is immature. After the European brand condensing furnace entered the Chinese market, due to the complexity of domestic temperament and water quality, the phenomenon of “acclimatization” appeared, and the use effect was unsatisfactory. On the other hand, due to the high time and labor costs required for condensation technology, there are very few companies in the initial deployment, not to mention the promotion of the advantages of condensation furnaces. In addition, the low-end wall-hung boilers during the “coal-to-gas” period also squeezed the development space of condensing furnaces.
As energy conservation and environmental protection gradually become the mainstream trend of development and the requirements of mid-to-high-end users for comfortable products continue to increase, the development of the industry has entered a new stage. Although most of the fully premixed condensing furnaces on the market were from foreign brands, Chunjiang Plumbing Duck is deeply aware of market changes. In recent years, many domestic brands have also actively deployed and competed to launch fully premixed condensing furnace products with more mature technology. In the retail market, user awareness has increased significantly.
Relevant data shows that in the first three quarters of 2021, the total sales of gas-fired wall-hung boilers was 2.0563 million units, a year-on-year decrease of 17.49%, of which the sales volume of condensing furnaces was 192,700 units, which doubled year-on-year.
The promotion of condensing furnace is imperative
The condensing furnace not only operates efficiently, but also saves energy. In the case of high energy prices, it can help users save energy and save usage costs. If it can be widely used in the market, it will have multiple meanings——
▶︎ The first is the strategic requirement of the “two-carbon” goal. This year’s “carbon peak, carbon neutrality” was written into the government work report for the first time at the two sessions, and various regions have formulated phased “double carbon” goals, forcing the transformation and upgrading of various industries. In the wall-hung boiler industry, energy-saving and environmentally friendly condensing furnaces are undoubtedly more in line with emission reduction requirements, which can be described as an important breakthrough in the wall-hung boiler industry.
▶︎ Secondly, the promotion of condensing furnaces is required by the market. In the context of the continuous growth of the southern heating market, the fully premixed condensing furnace can better meet the needs of users in this market for high-quality, high-comfort products, and the incremental market is considerable. The “coal-to-gas” replacement market in the north has also released more demand for mid-to-high-end products, and there are unlimited opportunities for condensing furnaces.
In addition, at the “Condensing Gas Heating Water Heater Technology and Market Seminar” organized by the Gas Heating Professional Committee of the Gas Branch of the Chinese Civil Engineering Society recently, Wang Qi, director of the China Gas Heating Professional Committee, expressed his views on the The necessity of popularizing the condensing furnace and how to popularize the condensing furnace are expounded. Among them, from the perspective of the industry, the necessity of promoting condensing furnaces can be summarized as follows:
After “coal to gas”, the wall-hung boiler industry has overcapacity and is in urgent need of industrial upgrading. The role of high-quality condensing furnaces in promoting high-quality development of the industry and reshaping the pattern is obvious; in the replacement/retail market, the industry is highly competitive, and advanced condensing technology It is the key point to enhance the competitiveness of the core product of the product. Director Wang Qi also made it clear at the seminar that the revision of the new version of the energy efficiency standard “GB 20665″ will be promoted, and the scope of energy efficiency will be greatly improved in the future.
At this time, the promotion of condensing furnaces is the general trend, both from the perspective of the market and the industry.
