Hot water radiator, typically known as hot water heating system, is an efficient and cost-effective system to heat homes and other commercial and industrial areas. Radiator system primarily provides heat through heat exchange. Heat exchange is the process of transferring heat from a heat source to the designated areas required to be warmed. The heat source in a radiator system is either oil, gas, or electricity that heats up the heat exchanger in the boiler, which in turn, heats the water present in the boiler. The water than travels through the radiator and emits heat through the radiator metal that is usually a good conductor of heat and thus makes the desired area warm. Various factors are taken into consideration before selecting hot water radiators for residential purpose. Horizontal and vertical radiators are used based on the size of the room. Radiators styles and designs also differs based on the space and interior designs of a residential room.
The global hot water radiators market is anticipated to proliferate during the forecast period. Increased disposable income of people, coupled with rising number of residential homes, is driving the growth of the hot water radiators market across the globe. Another prime factor boosting the demand for the product is its energy-efficiency. Hot water radiators powered by gas are normally less expensive than their substitutes, such as electric room heaters, blowers, etc. Additionally, heat generation from hot water radiator lasts for long, even after the system is switched off, as the radiator retains the heat from the warm water, which is an added advantage of using the product.
Hot water radiator also provides better air quality compared to forced-air furnaces, which makes it more user-friendly. Additionally, rising sale of hot water radiators through e-commerce platforms is anticipated to aid in higher revenue generation for the hot water radiators market.

However, hot water radiators are expensive to install and have high maintenance cost which restraint the growth of the market. Addition of a hot radiator heating system to an air conditioning system requires additional duct system that adds cost to it. Hence, households with air conditioning system opting for hot water radiators need to bear higher installation charges, which limits the demand of the product.
