Air purifiers are devices that have been devised to limit the health risks associated with breathing contaminated air. They may consist of simple respirators that provide protection against lower concentrations of particulate pollutants to more complex systems that can be fitted to HVAC or AHU systems to ensure that contaminants are filtered out before air is recalculated.



Air purifier Market Forecast and Trends


Growth Drivers 


Rise in air pollution level will boom the usage of air purifiers

Air pollution is the emission of toxic elements into the atmosphere by natural or anthropogenic sources. These sources can be further differentiated into either mobile or stationary sources. Anthropogenic air pollution is often summarized as being mainly related to motorize street traffic (especially exhaust gases and tire abrasion). The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 2.4 million fatalities due to air pollution every year. As intake of polluted air can have severe health effects such as asthma, or increased cardiovascular risks, most countries have strengthened laws to control the air quality and mainly focus on emissions from automobiles. In the year 2019, eroding air quality in the United States led to 10,000 deaths, thus the demand for air treatment facilities is booming in the market. 


Production of smart air purifiers is increasing 

The increasing preference of consumers towards electronic devices with smart connectivity since they reduce human effort will drive the demand for smart air purifiers. For instance, Blueair provides smart air purifiers that can be controlled by using smart devices. The settings on the app offer the desired time to be set for the purifier to switch on and off, monitor the air quality in a room, and connect it to the Blueair Friend app to monitor changes in air quality. Additionally, the benefits of smart air purifiers such as easy remote access and control of the functioning of an air purifier through mobile apps. Smart air purifiers also provide information related to the amount of dust and pollutants cleaned during the filtration process. 




High Set up cost and periodic maintenance

The need for the replacement of filters periodically to attain maximum efficacy is the other major restraints hampering the market growth. Also, there is a requirement for a clean coverage area or an empty room to set up air treatment technologies. Hence, this may cost a high investment in building up the entire suitable room for the process. The separate empty room measures the clean air delivery rate to the high accuracy thus to attain the accurate standards various norms have been set up by the government also where an air treatment technologies can be set up such as closed doors, large pieces of furniture, vacuum cleaner, good humidifiers, and others. These requirements overcall may cost a high amount and can affect the demand for air purify technologies in the market due to the regular maintenance charge.
