Global Automotive Parking Heater Market – Anticipated Rise in the Demand for DIY Preheaters

Renewable energy

The global automotive parking heater market was valued at almost 21 million units in 2016 and is expected to surpass 25 million units by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global automotive parking heater market, under its automotive electronics portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like Webasto, Eberspächer, Digades, and Pro-West Refrigeration.

According to Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead analyst for automotive electronics research at Technavio, “DIY as a trend is becoming increasingly popular and is penetrating an extensive range of product verticals. Several aftermarket manufacturers feature a 12-volt portable car preheater that also serves the purpose of a parking heater. The preheater is equipped with a remote control and timer and has two vents that can be positioned as per the requirements of the user.”

DIY preheaters consume less power as these kits are battery operated and can be charged easily through AC ports or power ports of cars. Webasto and Eberspächer are some of the vendors dominating the global automotive parking heater market.

Increasing demand for preheaters in electric vehicles (EVs)

Preheaters are used extensively in EVs to maintain the interior temperature. Automotive parking heaters do not require car batteries for operation but maintain the temperature in the EVs by utilizing 240 volts of electricity from the charging stations. This helps in saving the battery power of the vehicle, subsequently increasing mileage.

Connected car technology to set stage for remote automotive parking heaters for OEMs

Connected car technology helps in accessing the parking heater even before the driver or the passenger boards the vehicle. The heater can be accessed through remotes, mobiles, PCs, or tablets. Automotive parking heaters set the interior temperature of the vehicle, starts and warms the engine. For instance, the BMW connected app sets the interior temperature and clears ice on windows.
