U.S. Indoor Air Quality Market
The U.S. market for indoor air quality (IAQ) was valued at nearly $7 billion in 2011 and is projected to reach nearly $7.3 billion in 2012, and nearly $9.2 billion in 2017, a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6%.
This report is confined to covering IAQ issues of concern to residential homes, commercial buildings and light industrial properties, schools and hospitals. It does not discuss IAQ issues relevant to heavy industry and manufacturing environments, nor does it cover IAQ issues, practices, equipment and regulations concerning confined spaces or aircraft. It does, however, discuss the equipment and services that are most relevant to private homes, office buildings and retail establishments, schools and healthcare facilities in great detail. The equipment covered includes air cleaners, HVAC equipment, HVAC replacement filters and IAQ instrumentation. Environmental services such as consulting and remediation and recovery are also specifically noted.
