​Growing demand for saving energy in the USA is driving demand for VRF (variable refrigerant flow) based commercial air conditioning systems, according to a recent report by market research company, TMR
​TMR forecasts that the US commercial air conditioning market will have grown from US$7.25 million in 2012 to US$ 10.25 million by 2019. The growth is around 5.2% by value and 1.9% by volume. 

Increasing numbers of end users demand more efficient air conditioning systems for the buildings and VRF-based systems are deployed as a result. Split and single packaged systems account for over 77% of the US air conditioning market and, according to the report, are the strongest growth areas. 

Underlying the growth in the market is a healthy construction industry in the USA in both public and private sectors. The private is the most buoyant sector. 

Mitsubishi Electric, United Technologies and Fujitsu account for over half of the US air conditioning market.
