The global ventilation system market size was USD 25.76 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 27.62 billion in 2022 to USD 46.47 billion in 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with experiencing higher-than-anticipated demand across all countries compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a rise of 6.9% in 2020 compared to 2019.  

Ventilation systems improve indoor air quality (IAQ), which helps in enhancing the indoor environment by exchanging both 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 the traditional system. The technological advancement streamlined with ventilators is improving usability, efficiency, and effectiveness of the overall ventilation system. Leading manufacturers are improvising heat recovery ventilators, air filters, and others with programmable controls and technology advancements to reinforce streamlined operations. Thus, it is set to boost operational efficiencies. In October 2020, Komfovent technologically upgraded its ‘Domekt R 450 V’, a 2nd-generation ventilation unit with a focus on rotor speed control, aerodynamic shape sensors, energy class, controller, and other aspects. Thus, the technological advancement in ventilation units is providing market growth opportunities across the globe.


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

The rapidly evolving pandemic situation has impacted the supply chain, which, in turn, has paralyzed the economic conditions across the globe. Numerous international and national organizations pointed out that the world economy is in the toughest period ever since the financial crisis. The United Nations (UN) analysis stated that the global economy would conceivably shrink to 1% in 2020, whereas it previously predicted a growth of 2.5%. As per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s World Investment Report 2020, the global FDI fell up to 40% in 2020 and is predicted to recover in 2022.

The subsequent lockdown enforced by various governmental bodies across countries, including China, India, Italy, the U.K., and others, is creating challenges that are impacting organizations of all sizes with respect to labor availability, product transportation, and others. However, this business is moderately affected across the world. The reason being, few ventilation and air conditioning activities are halted, owing to the unavailability of workers. Air conditioning and ventilation activities refer to the repairing of existing energy recovery ventilators (ERVs), changing the operation of Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning system (HVAC), fixing air-conditioned (AC) units, replacing air filters, and others.

Governmental bodies across Germany, India, the U.S., the U.K., and China are heavily investing in installing and maintaining ventilation units across facilities to mitigate the COVID-19 impact. For instance, in October 2020, the German government invested nearly USD 488.0 million to improve these systems in public buildings to minimize the spread of coronavirus and improve air circulation across museums, public offices, universities, and schools. Considering the above-mentioned impact, the growth trajectory for this market was anticipated to be solid with the moderate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2020.

Escalating Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Awareness and Rising Green Building Initiatives are Prominent Trends

Nowadays, air quality is becoming an important concern as deficient IAQ creates an adverse impact on the health, productivity, and cognitive function wellbeing of indoor occupants. In such scenarios, the ventilation system’s demand is projected to fuel the market growth. It is attributed to its competence to constantly replace stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, remove excess moisture & molds, bacteria, and household chemicals present in the indoor environment, minimize carbon footprint, and optimize energy efficiency.

Earlier, it was a challenge to pass insufficient outdoor air in order to enhance the indoor air as the required conditioning process demands a high cost. However, in order to tackle such challenges, manufacturers have introduced ventilation units that improve the outdoor air quality intake and potentially downsize the ventilation energy costs. Moreover, government regulations and their involvement in constructing green buildings and policies associated with carbon emissions for commercial and residential purposes are amongst the major ventilation system market trends.


Increased Demand for Decentralized Ventilation System to Spur Market Growth

A decentralized ventilation system refers to one air handling unit (AHU) per apartment in a multi-family residential project or office in a multi-story office building. The concept of a decentralized ventilation unit has been introduced in the HVAC industry to reduce the space requirement for ductwork and eliminate the challenging interconnections between suites in multi-unit buildings. An upsurge in the adoption of decentralized systems across the residential sector is resulting in the growth of the market. It is attributed to benefits including minimal risk in malfunctioning situations and maintenance, and hence each unit in the space can be regulated effortlessly. As a result, system components, i.e., insulation and duct sections, are easily installable.            

In residential and commercial applications, decentralized systems outshine in retrofitting, refurbishment projects where natural ventilation is insufficient. In accordance, industry experts nodded to the fact that decentralized ventilation reduces space conditioning requirements by allowing compartmentalization of buildings into zones that reduces air leakage through the building envelope. This, in turn, improves comfort thus, bolstering the market growth.


Unavailability of Skilled Technicians is Impeding Market Growth

The fast-tracked HVAC industry has generated the prerequisite of automation processes for all products and services; ventilation units are no exception. It has therefore raised the demand for advanced systems manufacturing and installation across residential and commercial applications. However, the traditional mechanized ventilation depressurizes the room space. The modern residential and commercial room spaces being compact and airtight depress the indoor pressure due to compelling the air to the outside. It results in complications for regular vent appliances that require positive force to release their combustion outside the room space, thus impeding the market growth.


By Product Analysis

Recovery Ventilation Systems Segment to Depict Highest CAGR in Future

In terms of product type, the market is classified into axial and centrifugal fans, recovery ventilation systems, and others (air filters, fan coil units, and more).

The recovery ventilation systems segment is in the best position to lead the market with the highest CAGR over the forecast period. It is attributed to the fact that these systems exchange the energy contained in the exhausted air of a conditioned space or building while treating the incoming outdoor air into fine quality indoor ventilation air. Energy and heat recovery systems have high demands in the residential and commercial sectors as they minimize the consumption of central spaces (while offering wall and ceiling mounted ERVs), thus providing a larger workspace with healthy indoor air quality.

The others segment captured the highest ventilation system market share in 2020, owing to the rising adoption of air filters across countries with extreme climatic situations. Air filters help in purifying the contaminated outdoor air that could affect the health and comfort of consumers. Thus, it holds the largest market share in the ventilation market.

Moreover, the axial and centrifugal fans segment is expected to depict a stable CAGR over the forecast period, as these fans have specific applications in the industrial sector with longer shelf life but require higher maintenance over the period of time.
