Air Volume Controllers Market Outlook - 2026
Air volume controllers are the devices installed in the ventilation ducts. These devices are used for fulfilling the tasks of indoor climate processing, air flow adjustment, and shut-off. Air volume controllers are of two types—variable air volume controller (VAV) and constant air volume controller (CAV). The variable air volume controller supplies variable air flow at constant temperature and constant air volume controllers supplies constant air flow at variable temperature. Variable air volume controllers have more advantages than constant air volume controllers. These advantages include reduced compressor wear, lower energy consumption by system fans, less fan noise precise temperature control, and increased dehumidification. According to Systemair AB, a leading player in ventilation systems, VAV systems are the most modern energy efficient air systems available for comfort air conditioning. Air volume controllers are used in offices, schools & nurseries, shops, industries, hotels, and healthcare premises. CAV controller is of two types-single-zone and multi-zone. The load variation in single-zone applications is minimum over the time; therefore, CAV controller is preferred. Generally, CAV controller is used in auditoriums, theaters, and museums. Multi-zone CAV controller is required for providing variable air temperatures for individual zones. These zones require duct heating; therefore, the energy efficiency is less for multi-zone CAV controller. VAV is recommended for multi-zone systems. Dual duct VAV controllers have separate ducts for cold and hot air. Each zone has a plenum where their airflow is mixed. Multi-zone types have VAV boxes, which control the airflow supplied to individual zones. VAV systems achieve their full potential in applications where there are multiple zones with variable load. Some examples are malls, hotels, and office buildings.
The air volume controllers market is anticipated to experience significant growth during the forecast period due to high requirements from industrial buildings to save energy and reduce cost. These controllers intelligently match the energy generation requirements with usage & distribution. These air volume controllers are used with monitoring tools, such as smart thermostats. Past and future energy consumption data can be analyzed with the help of smart thermostat devices, such innovation will propel the growth of air volume controllers market. According to International Energy Agency (IEA) based in Paris, France, the global energy demand from air conditioners is expected to triple by 2050. This forecast suggests that the demand for the air volume controllers is expected to grow during the forecast period. Air volume controllers have high maintenance and installation cost. In addition, the unavailability of spare parts is one the factors expected to restrict the growth of the air volume controllers market.
The global air volume controllers market is segmented based on type, application, and region. By type, the market is divided into variable air volume controller and constant air volume controller. The demand for these controllers depends upon the zone in which it is used; for example, in single zone or in multiple zone. By application, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. The industrial segment is anticipated to experience growth during the forecast period owing to high requirements from industrial buildings to save energy and reduce costs. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. As per the statistics of International Energy Agency (IEA) based in Paris, France, for every three houses in China, one house uses AC. Rise in income of the citizens in other developing countries is another factor expected to drive the market growth. These countries include Indonesia, India, Brazil, and Mexico; these countries together represented a market of around 100 million AC units in 2018.
