Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Energy recovery ventilator market size is estimated to cross USD 10 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of energy recovery ventilators was over USD 4 billion. The growth of this market can be attributed to the rising trend of green building construction globally. The trend of constructing green buildings is rising owing to environmental conditions, strict government regulations, standards of energy consumption, and a rise in hazardous emissions. The building manufacturers now are focusing on constructing green buildings in order to get more profit from the income generated from the property business. Therefore, with the rise in the deployment of ventilators the market of energy ventilators is expected to grow more in the upcoming years. Anyhow, the key suppliers align their products in line with green building certifications, Thus, the rise in the construction of the green building is expected to drive the industry growth. The green building consumes 40-50% less energy and 10-20% less water.

On the other hand, the maintenance of air quality has become a major concern nowadays. Deficient indoor air quality poses an adverse impact on the health, productivity, cognitive function, and well-being of people. The ability of energy recovery ventilator to replace stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, its ability to remove all the pollutant particles from the environment, optimize energy efficiently, minimizes carbon footprints and others are factors driving the growth of this market in the forecast period. In 2020, globally around 3.2 million people died out of bad indoor air quality.

Energy Recovery Ventilator Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Construction of Green Buildings Around the World – The growing construction of green buildings all over the world is boosting the market growth in the upcoming times. This can be attributed owing to rising hazardous emissions, growing awareness about green buildings among the people, and standards of energy consumption. As per the U.S. Green Building Council, green and healthier buildings streamlined with promotive ventilation can grow to return on investment by 19% and building asset value by 10%.
  • Growing Consciousness for Indoor Air Quality – Nowadays, maintenance of indoor air quality has become one of the most significant concerns. An energy recovery ventilator has the ability to replace bad indoor air with fresh outdoor air. Additionally, it also removes all pollutant particles such as viruses, bacteria, and household chemicals from the environment, minimizes carbon footprints, optimizes energy efficiency, and others. Globally around 4.1% of death takes place owing to bad indoor air quality.
  • Government Regulations - Several governments around the world have introduced regulations and standards to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For instance, the European Union's Building Energy Performance Directive requires all new buildings to be near-zero energy buildings by 2020. Energy recovery fans help buildings comply with these regulations and standards.
  • Growing Demand in New Commercial and Residential Projects – Rising demand for new commercial and residential projects in turn is giving rise to the energy recovery ventilator market owing to indoor air quality purposes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified indoor air pollution as a major environmental problem because indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. To address this issue, the EPA recommends using ventilation systems to improve indoor air quality in commercial and residential projects.


  • Complex Installation Mechanism – The demand for energy recovery ventilators seems to have risen with the concern of indoor air quality. However, its complex installation procedure might hamper the market growth in the forecast period. Also, the task becomes a bit challenging to install energy recovery ventilators in the old design houses.
  • Noise and Discomfort
  • High Maintenance Cost of Energy Recovery Ventilator

Energy Recovery Ventilator Segmentation

Application (Commercial, Residential) 

The global energy recovery ventilator market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into commercial, residential, and others. Out of these, the commercial segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share in the forecast period. Energy recovery ventilators are widely used in commercial buildings such as hospitals, schools, offices, restaurants, commercial kitchens, and other commercial areas. Also, there are more and more "green" buildings, and various government laws to reduce energy use in buildings are being created and strictly enforced. Moreover, the market for energy recovery ventilators for commercial utilization is expanding owing to the increased demand for these devices globally. For instance, 17.2% of green building in the United States belongs to the commercial department.

Type (Plate Heat Exchanger, Heat Pipe Heat Exchanger, Rotary Heat Exchanger)

The market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into ceiling mount, wall mount, and cabinet. Amongst these, the ceiling mount segment is anticipated to account for the highest market share in the forecast period.
