The global high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filters market is forecast to reach $2.7 billion in 2016, according to a TechSci Research report, due to deteriorating indoor and outdoor air quality, rising consumer awareness regarding airborne diseases, coupled with stringent government regulations to improve IAQ.
Market being driven by growing awareness of the importance of IAQ
March 25, 2016
The global market for ventilation fans, which stood at $1.6 billion in 2015, is forecast to reach $2.4 billion by the end of 2023, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9 percent between 2015 and 2023, according to a report from Transparency Market Research.
Ultraviolet (UV) light has been growing as part of the HVAC landscape for years, specifically within the IAQ arena. ASHRAE's validation is certainly a huge step forward for UV, but many manufacturers believe this technology has already proven its value, as its growth and expansion began years ago.
Whether it’s through the use of UV light, whole-home IAQ solutions, or commercial-grade air-filtration equipment, the following case studies showcase ways contractors have solved IAQ problems at both the residential and commercial levels.
Evaporative, warm-air steam, and ultrasonic humidifiers are highly desirable for customers coast to coast, and manufacturers are developing products across all three variations that better respond to an array of personalized demands.
