Surge in Smart Home Constructions to Ensure Future Growth

The rising adoption of smart home constructions across countries, including the U.K., Germany, Sweden, Italy, France, Russia, and others is anticipated to bolster the demand for monitoring systems over the forecast period. Additionally, modern technological advancements in wearable devices and mobile-based software to monitor fresh indoor air quality are expected to complement the smart Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring solution.

In recent years, European countries have experienced a significant rise in demand for IAQ monitoring products in residential and commercial applications, including houses, malls, multi-story buildings, hotels, and others.

This factor is mainly attributed to the growing public awareness of indoor air pollution's health implications coupled with increased household air pollution, further contributing toward the Europe Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring solution market growth.


Increased Indoor Air Pollution to Aid Market Expansion

According to a research report published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is about 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. However, in some cases, due to poor ventilation and cramped spaces, indoor air is about 100 times more polluted than the outdoor environment. In the past few years, more and more scientific evidence has shown that even in the largest and most industrialized cities, the air inside houses and other buildings is more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollution in homes, schools, offices, and factories maybe twice or even five times that of outdoor air.

Other studies indicate that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. In addition, the most vulnerable parts of the population, especially the elderly and children under five, spend more time indoors than their peers with stronger endurance. Therefore, for many people, health risks may result from exposure to indoor air pollution rather than outdoor exposure. The rapid increase in the number of indoor pollutants has surged the demand for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring solutions from related downstream industries such as residential and commercial buildings.


High Product Costs to Hinder Market Growth

The demand for IAQ monitoring solutions is growing with the rising attentiveness toward fresh indoor air quality. However, the high production cost of smart IAQ monitoring systems is hampering the market growth.

Additionally, several end-users across Europe procure low-priced IAQ monitoring equipment as a replacement, which hampers the working environment in commercial, residential, and industrial applications in terms of low environmental effectiveness. Savings on replacement result in extra particulate contaminants carried through the buildings, resulting in harmful indoor air. Moreover, the lack of awareness about the ill effects of impure air on health amongst the occupants is also a major factor responsible for hampering the market growth.
