Exhibitions in Italy for Air-Conditioning

In 2024, Italy’s air conditioning industry experienced a cool €2.19bn in revenue, signaling a trend of surging demand in a nation known for its unforgiving summers. The market is projected to ride a wave of annual growth at a robust 7.27% from 2024 to 2028, which shows a high penetration of air conditioning tech. In 2024, each Italian household contributed €81.52 to the air conditioning market, which makes sense considering the dramatic rise in summer temperatures. Looking into the future, the volume of the Italian market is anticipated to hit 2.19 billion units by 2028. This newfound reliance on air conditioning is not accidental. The country’s soaring temperatures, coupled with an increasing focus on energy-efficient cooling solutions, have fueled the demand for these systems. The market growth is propelled by factors such as a rise in disposable income, evolving lifestyles, and a growing inclination towards smart homes. Italy’s consumers are not just seeking comfort; they're increasingly environmentally conscious, driving the demand for energy-saving and eco-friendly air conditioning solutions. According to 6Wresearch, Italy’s air conditioning industry is poised for a 6.9% CAGR during the forecast period from 2024 to 2030. Luxury is on the rise, and the demand for high-end AC solutions is riding high. However, challenges such as installation costs, rising energy prices as well as environmental concerns have prompted the introduction of regulations and standards that manufacturers must navigate. Despite these challenges, the shift to remote working has boosted residential AC sales, and the pandemic has spurred a significant trend – the increased demand for portable ACs. Moreover, the advent of smart homes has further fueled the desire for connected ACs, which allows users to control their cooling systems with a simple tap on their smartphones. Given how quickly smart HVAC systems have entered the scene, the air conditioning market is expected to continue its growth.
