The North America ventilation system market size was USD 7.61 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 8.17 billion in 2023 to USD 13.91 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.

Ventilation systems control and circulate indoor air by displacing and diluting pollutants. They improve the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), which enhances the indoor climate through an exchange of indoor and outdoor air. Ventilation to improve the indoor air quality plays a crucial role in controlling the thermal comfort when weather conditions change. It is installed in residential, commercial, and industrial areas.

Recent improvements in evaporative cooling and fan technology are fueling the demand for innovative ventilation systems over conventional ones. Technological advancements integrated into ventilators improve their usability, efficiency, and effectiveness. Leading manufacturers are upgrading energy recovery ventilators, air filters, and other products with programmable controls and advanced technologies to create streamlined operations. These technological advancements are expected to boost the North America ventilation system market growth.


COVID-19 Hampered Business Operations, Causing Market Uncertainty and Volatility

This industry in North America was slightly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first quarter of 2020. The reason behind it is that certain ventilation and air conditioning activities were halted as there was a severe lack of workforce. COVID-19 also caused changes in human behavior and hobbies. Consumers got more influenced by the increase in air changes, outdoor air intakes, and exhaust air intakes, and the adoption of air filters grew owing to precautions taken against the COVID-19 virus.

Additionally, due to changes in climate and growing public concerns over air quality and energy efficiency, there was a strong demand for climate control systems, such as HVAC machines for reducing energy consumption in North American countries. Moreover, various governments were planning to fund the installation of HVAC systems in residential, commercial, and industrial areas.

For instance, in December 2020, the U.S. government offered funds worth around USD 82 billion for installing ventilation and air quality systems in primary as well as secondary schools.

Rising Demand for Green Buildings to Boost Market Growth

The trend of zero-energy buildings in the construction sector is rising at a notable pace, which is anticipated to boost the ventilation system market growth. The concept of sustainable buildings is supported by several governments including 26 countries in ‘Energy in Building and Communities’. They are introducing several programs to promote the construction of eco-friendly buildings and formulating policies regarding carbon emissions for commercial and residential purposes.

The building owners are also emphasizing on the construction of eco-friendly buildings as there is a strong connection between financial incentives and zero-energy buildings. Therefore, owners of commercial buildings are installing supportive ventilation solutions on a large scale after realizing the significance of having fresh indoor air. Emerging as well as developed nations are increasing their focus on eco-friendly building programs, which will help them increase awareness about the importance of having high indoor air quality.


Rising Adoption of Ventilation Technologies due to COVID-19 Fueled Market Progress

Ventilation continues to be a top concern - a key prevention strategy for maintaining healthy environments and reducing the likelihood of spreading disease.

Moreover, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, several institutions were heavily investing in improving their ventilation solutions across the commercial and residential sectors. They were also recommending a layered approach to reduce exposure to COVID-19. This is owing to the rising awareness of the importance of a healthy indoor air quality.

Indoor Air Quality or IAQ awareness increased among people due to the COVID-19 outbreak as proper ventilation could decrease the risk of air-transmitted diseases by reducing the number of airborne virus particles. Healthcare is one of the major end-users in this market. Ventilation units must be well maintained to halt the spread of airborne pathogens throughout healthcare facilities.


High Maintenance & Operating Costs and Skilled Labor Shortage to Hamper Market Progress

Conventional ventilation systems remove the issue of space congestion. Many futuristic residential and commercial spaces, which are quite airtight and compact, decrease the overall internal pressure by forcing the air out of the space. This factor can create problems while deploying traditional ventilators that need positive force to eliminate combustion outside the room. This problem can be solved by ensuring that these systems are sent for regular maintenance. However, analyzing the machines and detecting and solving the problem is a complex and time-consuming process. Skilled technicians are required to perform these activities. These factors often increase the cost of operating and maintaining ventilation machines. The key companies keep developing new technologies to overcome different operating and maintenance challenges.

Furthermore, the HVAC sector is facing a severe shortage of skilled technicians. The existing workforce has already become eligible for retirement within the next 10 years. This issue has raised the problem of workforce shortage. These factors might restrain the region’s market share.


By Product Analysis

Air Handling Units to Gain Major Traction Due to High Demand in Residential and Commercial Spaces

Based on product, the market is divided into grills, diffusers, plenums, fans, fire dampers, duct systems, Air Handling Units (AHU), Heat Recovery Units (HRV), and others (air filters).

The Air Handling Units (AHU) segment might hold the largest North America ventilation system market share. This is due to a rise in the demand for these units for commercial and residential spaces as they offer energy-efficiency and attractive features. Moreover, the use of these systems is expected to grow significantly in oil & gas and other related areas due to the expansion of residential and commercial sectors.

The fan, Heat Recovery Unit (HRU), and duct system segments will grow significantly during the forecast period owing to their high demand across all sectors. Improving the productivity of data centers and raising the average spending on them are driving the need for fans across data centers to maintain an ambient indoor temperature and boost the indoor air quality.

Grills, diffusers, plenums, and fire damper segments will grow at a decent rate during the forecast period. This is due to the rising demand for ventilation systems in industrial and commercial sectors due to features, such as energy efficiency, durability, and ease in installing the machine.
