This deliverable on market segmentation is part of work package 2 and provides a quantitative segmentation of the gas appliance market in terms of appliance population numbers. It therefore prepares the project partners to perform the subsequent selection of the most representative product types to be tested in the laboratories of the THyGA partners.

The classification is developed to categorise appliances installed in the field, based on available statistics, calculation methods and estimations. As a result, appliance populations are provided for each technology segment that draw a representative picture of the installed end-use appliances within the European Union in 2020.
