Ventilation Equipment - A European Market Overview

06 Jun 2011 • by Natalie Aster

New construction and retrofit activities in Europe have been on the slower side, contributing to minimal growth in the ventilation equipment market in the region. The global recession affecting several developed markets has had its say in Europe, too, with several Western European countries feeling the heat. Notwithstanding these factors, overall outlook for ventilation equipment market in Europe is expected to be picking up, although at a slow pace. Renewed construction activity in the residential, industrial and commercial sectors would enhance demand for ventilation equipment. Other factors, such as awareness about importance of indoor air quality and energy efficiency standards would go a long way in renewing market demand. The European Union (EU) has promulgated a regulation that sets forth reducing energy consumption in buildings, which is viewed as a key area for increased demand of ventilation equipment that improve indoor air quality, without the added burden of high energy consumption.
