Employing an array of technologies to create more effective ventilation than conventional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring and management systems can provide a healthy and productive indoor environment while saving both energy and money. While adoption is somewhat limited by the rate of the global economic recovery, new standards and regulations, as well as a heightened sensitivity to how the health and comfort of office workers affects productivity, is driving greater use of these technologies. Click to tweet: According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide revenue from indoor air quality systems will grow from $3.3 billion in 2014 to nearly $5.6 billion by 2020.
“The spread of indoor air quality technology requires a change in mindset on the part of architects, engineers, and building owners regarding the way buildings are designed and built,” says Benjamin Freas, research analyst with Navigant Research. “As IAQ monitoring moves away from passive systems and toward intelligent systems, accurate feedback will help building operators achieve and maintain the desired performance both initially and over the life of the buildings.”
The key technologies that support IAQ systems, according to the report, include carbon dioxide sensors and demand-controlled ventilation (which matches the delivery of the ventilated air supply to the actual occupancy levels of the building spaces). In addition, energy recovery ventilation systems recycle the energy associated with the thermally conditioned air being exhausted from a building to precondition the incoming air, and dedicated outdoor air systems decouple ventilation and thermal comfort so that they no longer compete with each other.
The report, “Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Management”, 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. Global market forecasts for IAQ technologies revenue, segmented by region, building type, and technology, extend through 2020. The report also examines the key categories of IAQ improvements and the related technologies, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
