Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Management

Sensors, Energy Recovery Ventilation, Displacement Ventilation, Demand-Controlled Ventilation, Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems, and Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation for Improving Indoor Air Quality

Good indoor air quality (IAQ) is a necessity of modern building design and operations so that they provide a healthy and productive indoor environment. IAQ monitoring and management processes involve the application of technologies that can provide greater and more effective ventilation for buildings. These processes and technologies also encompass the measurement and verification of ventilation and moisture management performance to document that healthy conditions are achieved and maintained over the life of the building.

Various technologies are used for IAQ monitoring and management, including CO2 sensors, demand-controlled ventilation (DCV), energy recovery ventilation (ERV), dedicated outdoor air systems (DOASs), ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), displacement ventilation (DV), and underfloor air distribution (UFAD). These technologies are being adopted because they typically improve building operations while reducing energy use and improving IAQ. Due to new standards and regulations, as well as a rebound of the global economy, some of these technologies are being accepted for use in more buildings. However, this adoption is still limited by the rate of the global economic recovery. In addition, all of the players involved, including architects, engineers, and building owners, must be willing to change the way buildings have been built in the past. Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue for IAQ monitoring and management technologies will increase from $3.1 billion in 2013 to $5.6 billion in 2020.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for indoor air quality technologies that are currently available and being used in both new and retrofit applications. The study provides an analysis of the market conditions for IAQ monitoring and management and the drivers and barriers for wider adoption of the technologies.
