Daikin takes up new age energy efficient technology to seize the demand and to resist the competition

Global: Japanese manufacturer, Daikin is all set to launch its new small commercial sky air conditioner range, a R32 variant. This is the part of the Bluevolution range and also the first European ready product using the lower GWP (Global Warming Potential) for the units suitable for small shops and offices. The last 2 years, company has introduced Ururu, Emura, professional split units, channel terminal devices, and Siesta series on the R32 platform.

Adding to this, the Mini Zeas, inverter-driven commercial refrigeration condensing units, is highly efficient as the carbon footprint being 60% lower than equivalent products. The VRV-i, referred as the invisible, is compact as well as designed for indoor installation. More over the model has patent over the v-shaped heat condenser providing up to 10 VRV indoor units. The company also aims to introduce the EWWD-VZ water cooled chiller. It has to offer compact dimensions and high ESEER values. The EER value of the variant is 8.3 on partial load and 5.7 when talking about full load.

According to Techsci Research, Daikin is aiming to capture maximum share in the air conditioner market with the new technology that promises to be efficient on both vectors: Performance and Low Carbon Footprint. The R32 platform helps it to achieve the low GWP and ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential). Also the item has a low flammability. The installation costs are reduced due to features like easy installation and short pipelines. Moreover, with the technological advancements and the rise in the per capita disposable income of the individuals, the company has repositioned its products as energy efficient and low costing devices. This helps Daikin to achieve the competitive edge over its competitors like Gree, Toshiba, Carrier, LG etc.

In addition to the residential segment, growing hospitality and tourism sectors are contributing significantly towards rising demand for air conditioners across the globe. Introduction of energy-efficient air conditioners and air conditioners with in-built air purifiers is expected to boost air conditioner sales in the coming years. Split air conditioners dominated the global air conditioners market over window air conditioners, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The adoption of window air conditioners, VRF system, chillers and portable air conditioners is also expected to grow over the next five years. Few of the major air conditioner manufacturers with significant global footprint include Gree, Daikin, Toshiba, Carrier, Midea, LG, Panasonic and Trane.
