Due to harsh environmental conditions observed in offshore applications, it becomes essential to use air handling units manufactured using corrosion-resistant and light-weight materials. Air handling units, also referred to as air handler, acts as lungs of the overall HVAC system and hence becomes a crucial component of the overall system. In offshore applications, the major concern is to protect the air handling units from salty air, rain and stormy weather aboard the offshore facilities. Anoffshore air handling unit is typically designed in a large metal frame (typically made of aluminum) comprising various components such as fans, filters,heating/cooling elements, silencers and dampers. The outer box is made up of stainless, steel galvanized steel or aluminum alloys in order to ensure better environmental protection.

Air handling units are commonly used across various applications including oil rigs, cargo ships, cruise liners, navy ships and other marine applications. With the overall rising offshore industry worldwide, the demand for air handling units in the sector is estimated to remain strong in the coming years. This is the prime factor bolstering the offshore air handling unit market growth. Due to rising efforts by the manufacturers towards providing energy efficient, light-weight and durable units, the market has emerged quite competitive since the past few years. The market players are currently focused on targeting the cruise liners and yachts segment due to strong anticipated growth in the sector.
