LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technavio analysts forecast the global non-residential humidifier market to grow at a CAGR of close to 5% during the forecast period, according to their latest report.
“The hygroscopic nature of textiles, which makes them susceptible to changes in moisture content, is the primary reason for the demand for humidifiers in the textile industry.”
The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global non-residential humidifier market for 2017-2021. The market size has been determined based on the demand for humidifiers from commercial and industrial end-users.

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global non-residential humidifier market:
- Growing textile industry in APAC
- Ill-effects of incorrect RH at workplaces
- Improved IAQ and ventilation guidelines
Growing textile industry in APAC
Anju Ajaykumar, a lead engineering tools research analyst at Technavio, says, “The hygroscopic nature of textiles, which makes them susceptible to changes in moisture content, is the primary reason for the demand for humidifiers in the textile industry.”
Changes in moisture content directly impact textile properties such as tensile strength, fiber diameter, elasticity, and friction. Weight loss in textiles is another major factor caused by incorrect humidity control in the textile industry and can lead to major losses.
The build-up of static charge in textile processing is another reason for the demand for humidifiers in the textile industry. Static build-up can be eliminated by maintaining humidity at around 50%rh.
Ill-effects of incorrect RH at workplaces
A dry indoor environment at workplaces can lead to a sore throat, headache, skin irritation, sore eyes, and contact lens discomfort. These problems caused by a dry atmosphere are directly related to low RH. Various organizations such as Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA), and Building Research Establishment (BRE) have endorsed the ideal level of indoor humidity to be between 40%rh-60%rh. However, in many countries, RH levels are well below this optimal level. For instance, in the UK, one-fifth of offices had an RH of 25% while one-tenth of them had an RH of 23%.
RH levels of at least 40% need to be maintained to ensure a comfortable, healthy, and productive office environment, thus necessitating humidification. The incorporation of well-designed humidifiers within a building’s air-conditioning system will eliminate problems associated with incorrect RH levels.
Improved IAQ and ventilation guidelines
ASHRAE, an organization that focuses on building energy efficiency, IAQ, refrigeration, and other sustainable technologies to ensure a healthier environment, has introduced IAQ and ventilation guidelines, which are expected to boost the demand for humidity control equipment. ASHRAE Standards 62.1 and 62.2 are the recognized standards for ventilation system designs and acceptable IAQ.
“The focus on IAQ has made humidity control equipment a complementary product for comfort purposes. The guidelines mandate that builders provide healthy working environments in residential and non-residential buildings to avoid legal consequences,” says Anju.
