Eurovent Market Intelligence (EMI) is the European statistics office of the ‘HVACR’ market. EMI runs independently from association activities. This has been done in order to comply with the strictest confidentiality standards.

EMI has been providing key market data since 1994 and is a trusted partner of more than 300 manufacturers. The guiding principle of EMI is to establish a map of the European, Middle-East and African sales.



Statistics data on the ‘HVACR’ market in Europe, the Middle-East and Africa

Sales data provided by the participants remains fully confidential and results are being distributed to participants only. EMI provides annual and quarterly results, market trends and analyses, and makes reassessed data available for non-manufacturers.

Thanks to the manufacturers' participation in the data collections, EMI is able to provide:

  • Annual and quarterly analyses
  • Market trends and forecasts (annually and quarterly)
  • Detailed information on the equipment sold (technology, capacity, …)
  • Analyses by country (in Europe, the Middle-East and Africa)

EMI and legislation

EMI provides reliable and representative ‘HVACR’ market intelligence data based on information supplied by market participants. Different from many other statistical bureaus, this information constitutes actual sales data that is being verified.

The EMEA-wide data sets of EMI are frequently being used to support the development of legislation in the EU and beyond. EMI has, for example, provided anonymised, aggregated data sets on more than 2.000 refrigerated display cabinets to the European Commission to support the development of an Ecodesign Regulation for commercial refrigeration equipment.

In another instance, EMI has provided data concerning the rotor sales of evaporative cooling towers in the EU-28 to the European Commission. This had been done in order to justify an exemption of cooling towers from the ‘EU Fan Regulation’, which was considered unsuitable for cooling tower manufacturers.
