Global Dry Room Dehumidifier Market Restraints:

  • High equipment and maintenance cost: The high initial cost and significant maintenance expenditure that is associated with dry room dehumidifiers often deters many end users from adoption. Customers may perceive the cost of dehumidifiers as exceeding the cost of potential damage from excess moisture. Moreover, major replacement costs arise from deteriorating components like heat exchangers and compressors after prolonged use. This forces users to opt for low-cost alternatives thereby hampering market prospects.

Counterbalance: The high cost of the equipment of dry room dehumidifiers needs to be controlled and make affordable for the customers thus eliminating the low-cost alternatives and driving the market growth.

  • Limited awareness in developing regions: Lack of awareness regarding the benefits of controlled humidity and dehumidification exists in many developing economies. Cost sensitivity further limits adoption mainly to premium commercial establishments in these regions. Customers often remain unconvinced about return on investment from dehumidifiers. Limited marketing initiatives by players also contribute to restricted uptake. Hence raising knowledge about importance of maintaining humidity drives growth across the residential and industrial sectors in developing markets.
  • Presence of low-cost conventional alternatives: Availability of cheaper traditional alternatives like exhaust fans, ventilators, and air conditioners hinders the sales of dry room dehumidifiers. While less efficient, customers prefer these options, due to affordability and cost savings. Moreover, users perceive the cooling capability of air conditioners as an additional advantage over standalone dehumidifiers. The easy availability and operational familiarity with such alternatives especially dampens the mass adoption of dehumidifiers in the residential sector.
