Member Country Report, Market Overview, The United States of America – September 7, 2021. 
The Member Country Report of the United States included a market overview, and the US heat pump industry has been steadily growing since 2010, outpacing competing space heating technologies. Through promising R&D and business advances, the usage of ASHPs in cold regions is becoming more practical. In order to address environmental concerns and rapid increases in cooling/refrigeration demand, current R&D focuses are primarily on advancing the development of (i) more efficient cooling systems, including nontraditional cycles, (ii) alternative or advanced compression cycle technologies, and (iii) lower GWP refrigerant alternatives. Government initiatives, as well as public and private sector incentive schemes, promote the use of more efficient heat pump systems. The stringent minimum standards, R&D, tax credits, and incentive programs will all significantly impact the future of heat pump technologies. Download the presentation here.
