The European heat pump market broke a new record in 2022 according to data from 21 markets*, with around 3 million units sold.
Figures gathered by the European Heat Pump Association indicate growth of 39%, more than the previous year’s unprecedented rise of 34% in annual sales.
The total number of connected heating heat pumps (both air-to-air and ‘hydronic’ or water-based) and hot water heat pumps in Europe is now around 20 million.
Read the press release.
These 20 million heat pumps are providing heating to about 16% of Europe’s residential and commercial buildings**.
Europe’s heat pump stock now avoids 52.5 Mt of CO2 – roughly equivalent to the annual emissions of Greece.
EHPA publishes all these figures and far more every year in its market report – see the contents page on the left.

To ensure Europe’s heat pump sector continues to grow and meets the EU’s targets, EHPA and the European Climate Foundation coordinated an initiative to look into the barriers and solutions, with input from over 20 other organisations.
The Accelerator will input into the the European Commission’s upcoming heat pump action plan, expected before the end of 2023.

** Growth rates are calculated by comparing sales for heating heat pumps with data available to EHPA at the time of publication. Growth rates presented in individual national press releases may differ as as a result of comparing sales for individual market segments. The overall figure of 3 million combines 2.7 million heating heat pumps and about 320,000 hot water heat pumps.
