The global commercial boiler market reached $8.5 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow 4% per year through 2028, according to market research from Global Market Insights. That’s a lot of anticipated growth in the industry, which led PM Engineer to check in with a few manufacturers and get their take on what’s looking like a hot market.
