HVAC Manufacturing in Mexico

Boosted by industry and driven by cost savings, the market for HVAC manufacturing in Mexico shows no signs of cooling off.

The HVAC Manufacturing Market In Mexico Is Heating Up

Mexico has long been established as a stronghold for HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) manufacturing, which encompasses the production of parts and products involved in air conditioning, water heating and cooling, and overall heating and cooling units for construction, homes, and some transportation. According to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), Mexico is home to more than 600 companies dedicated to the HVAC sector. Many of these manufacturers are tier 1, 2, and 3 companies located within Mexico's various clusters.

Given the rapid, steady growth of the aerospace and automotive industries in the country, the demand for industrial furnaces for heat treatment has created a booming HVAC market in addition to consumer housing. As a result, Mexico has become home to a wide range of HVAC products, from vacuum pumps to ventilation parts. As the global economy continues to improve, Mexico’s HVAC industry will also expand and become more active; current estimates place HVAC sales growth at as much as 25 percent per year.
