The global ventilation system market size was valued at USD 27.61 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 29.65 billion in 2023 to USD 50.26 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period.

Ventilation systems improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), which helps in enhancing the indoor environment by exchanging outdoor and indoor air. Ventilation for indoor air quality is beneficial for the control of thermal comfort with changing weather conditions.

Recent advances in fan technology, evaporative cooling, and controlling are turning out to be significant over traditional systems. Rising technological advancements streamlined with ventilators are improving the usability, efficiency, and effectiveness of the overall system. Leading manufacturers are improvising heat recovery ventilators, air filters, and others with programmable controls and technology advancements to reinforce streamlined operations.

In October 2020, Komfovent upgraded its ‘Domekt R 450 V’, a second-generation ventilation unit with a focus on rotor speed control, aerodynamic shape sensors, energy class, controller, and other aspects. The technological advancements in ventilation units is providing market growth opportunities globally.


COVID-19 Hampered Business Strategic Approaches Resulting in Market Volatility and Uncertainty

The global market witnessed a moderate downfall in 2020 and is exhibiting strong growth over the forecast period. It is ascribed to the rising need for IAQ, reduced temperature, and awareness regarding health benefits for commercial, residential, and industrial applications that overcome the possible threat of diseases caused by breathing.

However, the ventilation industry was moderately affected across the globe for the first quarter of 2020. This is attributed to the fact that a few air conditioning and ventilation activities were stopped due to the need for more workers. Ventilation and air conditioning activities refer to the repairing of existing Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs), fixing Air-Conditioned (AC) units, changing the operation of HVAC systems, replacing air filters, and others.

Rising Inclination toward Green Buildings to Impel Market Expansion

The current trend of zero energy buildings in the construction sector is expected to propel the ventilation system market growth in the coming years. The idea of green buildings is supported by various government institutions, including 26 nations in ‘Energy in Building and Communities’. Governments are taking initiatives to construct green buildings and making policies considering carbon emissions for residential and commercial purposes.

Furthermore, building owners are highlighting the construction of green buildings as it is being observed that there is a connection between healthy buildings and financial rewards. As a result, commercial building owners are aggressively installing supportive ventilation systems that have gauged the importance of fresh indoor air. In accordance, developing and developed countries are extensively focusing on green-building initiatives that escalate awareness regarding indoor air quality.


Increased Demand for Decentralized Ventilation System to Drive the Market Growth

The surging popularity of decentralized systems to reduce the number of interconnections and ducts in office buildings or multi-family residential projects will result in a sudden increase in sales of ventilation equipment. Additionally, the adoption of decentralized systems in the rising residential sector is constantly increasing owing to the requirement of less maintenance and the low risk of malfunctioning.

In accordance, industry experts acknowledge that decentralized ventilation decreases space conditioning requirements by aiding the compartmentalization of buildings into zones that reduce air leakage through the building envelope. This improves comfort and proliferates market growth. For instance, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation is offering ‘VL50’ and ‘VL100’ decentralized ventilation units that deliver the benefit of controlled ventilation with heat recovery across applications, including living spaces, small businesses, and individual offices.


High Operating and Maintenance Costs of Ventilation Systems Along with Shortage of Skilled Technicians to Hinder Market Growth

Traditional mechanized ventilation eliminates space congestion. Modern commercial and residential spaces, which are highly airtight and compact, reduce internal pressure by pushing air out. This poses a complication with normal ventilators that require positive force to expel combustion outside the room. The issue can be resolved most effectively by ensuring the regular maintenance of these systems. However, examining the system and identifying and rectifying the error is only sometimes straightforward; skilled technicians are required to do so. Owing to these factors, the cost of operating and maintaining ventilation systems is high. The key market players keep innovating and developing technologies to overcome operating and maintenance issues.

Further, the HVAC industry is facing a concern regarding the unavailability of skilled technicians. The current workforce is on the verge of retiring within the next 10 years, raising the concern for workforce shortages. Due to these reasons, the ventilation system market share could get impacted worldwide.
