The global DOAS market size and share was valued at USD 3,720.20 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. The adoption of dedicated outdoor air systems, increasing concerns regarding employee safety, and innovative ventilation systems that enable manufacturers to effectively maintain the ideal working environments to reduce or eliminate damages are key factors expected to drive the global market demand and growth over the coming years. Moreover, increasing government investments and a high focus on research & development activities to develop new and more effective airflow solutions and introduce advanced features are also anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
A dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) is a type of HVAC system that’s specifically made to precondition outside air into a facility. The DOAS unit supplies dehumidified outside air to a building in hot climatic conditions and heated outside air during winters. It can be installed as an add-on to the existing HVAC equipment. However, the DOAS system is commonly designed to be a part of the overall strategy for a new building or space. Dedicated outside air systems offer several benefits to users, including cost savings, enhanced occupant comfort, and lower energy consumption.
A DOAS can range anything from a small micro-ducted fan unit in residential applications to big commercial packaged units. The most common features of a large-scale DOAS system are filters, supply and exhaust fans, cooling coils, heating sources, and some means of dehumidification. These components are there in place to ensure that only clean, pre-conditioned air makes its way into the facility through the air ducts. Using a DOAS system has several benefits, including energy and carbon savings, better control over indoor humidity, and customization to meet specific needs. The rapid emergence of several residential and commercial constructions worldwide and the implementation of various types of regulations are key factors expected to drive the dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) market demand over the coming years.

Moreover, the extensive rise in the construction of green buildings across both developed and developing countries, coupled with the increased consumer awareness regarding the wide range of beneficial features, including low operating costs, high energy efficiency, and several favorable government incentives, have paved the way for rising implementation of DOAS for both new and existing buildings. However, the growing complexity in incorporating various types of DOAS systems, as these systems combine indirect evaporative cooling and vapor compression into a packaged unitary air handler, acts as a major challenge for key market players and is expected to hamper the market growth.
A deadly virus has led to a halt in manufacturing activities and several disruptions in the global supply chains that, in turn, resulted in lower DOAS sales. Moreover, the lack of demand from consumers and shortage of labor and stock due to the imposed lockdown and several other restrictions on trade activities among many countries across the globe also negatively impacted market growth during the pandemic.

40-60 tons segment is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period
The 40-60 tons segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the anticipated period, which is mainly driven by its wide range of advantages, including extreme efficiency and multi-zone capacity to provide 100% outdoor air proficiency and the ability to reduce outdoor airflow by conditioning only necessary air amount for each zone. Moreover, the exceptional demand for DOAS with 40-60 tons capacity in the commercial and industrial sectors, along with the continuous rise in the development of technology hubs, especially in APAC countries like India, China, and Indonesia, are likely to fuel the adoption and growth of the segment market over the coming years.
New construction segment held a significant market share in 2022
The new construction segment held the majority of the market share in 2022, which is mainly accelerated by the continuous rise in economic growth, urbanization, and consumer rising disposable income, mainly in emerging economies like China, Indonesia, and India. In recent years, many governments have heavily invested in the commercial sector for the development of infrastructure along with the growing proliferation of energy-efficient buildings for the reduction of energy consumption, health protection, conserve water, and reduce pollution, among other key factors influencing the segment market growth exponentially over the coming years.
Cooling segment accounted for the highest market share in 2022
The cooling segment accounted for the highest market share in 2022 and is likely to retain its position throughout the anticipated period. The growth of the segment market is mainly driven by the high prevalence of DOAS, which are primarily designed to provide decoupling of the latent building load from zone cooling systems along with the rise in usage of sensible cooling systems in conjunction with the help of advanced ventilation systems. In addition, highly surging penetration for innovative cooling systems, as it helps in energy conservation and the ability to make DOAS an alternative to conventional cooling and ventilation systems.
Residential segment is expected to hold a considerable market share over the forecast
The residential segment is projected to account for a considerable market share over the forecast period on account of the rapidly growing adoption of retrofits in the residential sector, as retrofits have gained significant traction as a favorable alternative for achieving the required efficiency in energy consumption, comfort, and cost-effectiveness. Moreover, the introduction to the Internet of Things and various integrated smart technologies in DOAS has made them efficient compared to the older systems, coupled with their ability to improve the sustainability of the building and further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Thereby fueling the segment market growth at an exponential growth rate.
Asia Pacific region dominated the global market in 2022
