Impact of COVID-19 on South Africa HVAC Market
The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth of the South Africa HVAC market. According to the International Food Policy Research Institute, the South African economy witnessed a 5 percent decline in its GDP by the end of 2020. Additionally, according to Statistics South Africa (2020), the unemployment rate increased from 23.3% to 30.0% in the third quarter of 2020, making it the highest rate recorded since 2008. This significant decline in the average disposable income of consumers or families directly resulted in slow demand for the HVAC system, particularly in the residential segment.
