District Heating Market Size, Share, Growth, Analysis | Demand & Forecast 2026

Press Release

District heating is also known as heat networks or tele-heating. Basically, district heating is a distribution system that is used for distributing the heat generated in a centralized location through a system of insulated pipes. The district heating is used for residential as well as commercial heating requirements. District heating is generally used in heating requirements such as space heating and water heating. Generally, the required heat is obtained from a cogeneration plant burning fossil fuels or biomass, but in some cases heat-only boiler stations, geothermal heating, heat pumps, and central solar heating are also used.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is witnessing significant growth and is expected to grow faster in the upcoming years. Increase in population, rise in disposable income, and growth in government initiatives are the major factors that are expected to drive the district heating market growth in this region. In addition, increase in the number of households connected to district heating and rise in demand for thermal comfort are propelling the growth of the district heating market.
