Clearly there are opportunities for Businesses to make sure they are doing the right thing for the occupants, and In a new report by Navigant Research, the global IEAQ (Indoor Envirnmental Air Quality) market is expected to grow from $4.2 billion in 2015 to $7.1 billion by 2024.

Anne Wrobetz from Navigant said this “In order to effectively maintain a healthy indoor environment without compromising energy efficiency, building owners are turning to many new IEAQ technologies, “IEAQ systems are developing rapidly, and the most sophisticated ones integrate with building energy management systems (BEMS) and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to improve IEAQ without increasing the carbon footprint.”

Traditionally good IEAQ has been tied in to the volume of outdoor air brought into a room, many technologies now improve conditions indoors while lowering ventilation volumes and the energy used to ventilate a building, according to the report.

These technologies include carbon dioxide (CO2) sensors, demand-controlled ventilation, energy recovery ventilators, dedicated outdoor air systems, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, and displacement ventilation, all of which have growing markets.

The report, on Indoor Environmental and Air Quality (IEAQ), looks at the global market for these aforementioned technologies that are currently available and being used in new and retrofit applications.
