Heat Pump association members have predicted that the UK heat pump market is set to almost double in 2021.

According to the Heat Pump Association, the survey estimates that manufacturers expect to deliver 67,000 units in 2021, with orders already placed with their respective supply chains. With the Prime Ministers ten-point plan laid out last year outlining an ambition to deliver 600,000 heatpumps into homes by 2028, the results of this new survey is a welcome sign that things are progressing in the right direction.

The Heat Pump Association is committed to training the workforce required to deliver the planned road to net zero, with upskilling installers highlighted across the industry generally as a priority.

Phil Hurley, chair of the Heat Pump Association, said: “The near doubling of the heat pump market this year would be a substantial achievement at a time when the decarbonisation of homes and buildings is not just desired but essential; our members are committed to turning today’s forecast into a reality and have clearly backed this up with their advanced ordering.

The estimation of 67,000 heat pumps in 2021 shows the confidence from members of the HPA in delivering the scale up of heat pumps that the Prime Minister’s Ten Point plan necessitates. This is just the beginning of a long journey ahead, but we’re off to an incredibly promising start.”
