The global ventilation system market size was valued at USD 29.65 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 31.87 billion in 2024 to USD 59.06 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period.

Ventilation systems are used to control and circulate the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) by displacing and diluting pollutants. Ventilation and air conditioning systems improve indoor air quality by exchanging both indoor and outdoor air. Ventilation units are essential for maintaining thermal comfort control with respect to changing weather and atmosphere. They are installed in applications, such as residential, commercial and industrial.

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 the sales of ventilation equipment. Moreover, government initiatives regarding sustainable products among industrial and commercial sectors drive market growth. Additionally, government investments in installing and replacing such products in residential, commercial, and industrial spaces will drive market growth.

For instance, in August 2021, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. government mandated installing ventilation units in data centers. The basic aim of these initiatives is to reduce carbon emissions by around 20%, and about 30%-60% of energy-efficient products are included in these applications. Such initiatives boost the demand for ventilation units, which fuels the growth of the market.

The global market registered a moderate drop in net sales in COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.  Rising awareness among population about improving indoor air quality across residential and commercial spaces, which enhancing the demand for ventilation systems drastically after COVID-19 pandemic that drives the growth of the market.

Ventilation System Market Growth Factors

Government Initiatives Regarding Sustainable Ventilation Systems is Proliferating Market Growth

The federal government is investing in ventilation equipment systems to improve indoor air quality due to proper ventilation, which can be pivoted to maintain healthy environments, out of all other preventive measures. For instance, in October 2020, the government of Germany invested approximately USD 614.1 million in installing such systems in public offices, universities, schools, and museums. The basic aim behind the installation of such systems is to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) countries planned programs supporting green buildings. For instance, in September 2023, the Singapore government planned to invest around USD 100 million in the construction of new data centers in Adelaide with a capacity of 10 MW. All such factors drive the market growth.


High Operating and Maintenance Costs and Shortage of Skilled Technicians to Hinder Market Growth

Traditional mechanical ventilation eliminates congestion in the room. Modern residential and commercial buildings, which are compact and airtight, reduce internal pressure by expelling air. This causes problems with conventional fans, which require a positive force to remove the combustion from the room. The problem can be most effectively solved by ensuring regular maintenance of these systems. However, examining the system and identifying and fixing the error is only sometimes easy; it requires professional technicians. Due to these factors, the costs of operation and maintenance of such products are high. Key market players are engaged in the development of innovations and technologies to solve operational and maintenance problems.

In addition, the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry is concerned about the lack of skilled technicians. The current workforce will retire within the next 10 years, leading to job shortage concerns. For these reasons, the ventilation system market share can be affected globally.
