Here in Spain where our climate is mostly temperate I think use of radiant floors (that I assume is the application) is scarce. Most use convective radiators on hot water. Having the feet the warmer seems not to be good, or so seem to think most people.

However the embedded systems may have interesting applications outdoor, as built-in deicing systems.

Electrical radiators of course are used for instantaneous heat mainly in old homes without heating, and to heat transition areas such entries to malls and so on.

So depending on which area the products fall there is a sure but limited market...and where the application is ample, also is competence and lower the prices.
