Air Purifier Market (By Technology: Activated Carbon, High Efficiency Particulate Air, Ionic Filters, and Others; By Application: Residential, Commercial, and Industrial) - Global Market Size, Trends Analysis, Segment Forecasts, Regional Outlook 2020 - 2027

The global air purifier market was valued at US$ 7.59 billion in 2019 and expected to reach US$ 16.99 billion by 2027 and poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 10.6% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

Increasing prevalence of airborne diseases coupled with rising pollution levels in urban areas contribute as the prime factors for the air purifier market growth. Moreover, increasing disposable income, improved standard of living, and rising health consciousness are the other key factors expected to propel the growth of the industry. Increasing requirement for the adoption of air pollution control equipment, specifically in the developing countries anticipated to prosper the demand for air purifiers in the coming years.

As per a recent survey, clean air is of the utmost importance for the consumers to avoid various health problems. Besides this, growing industrialization along with rising construction & mining activities in developing countries prominently contributes to the air pollution that in turn expected to propel the demand for air purifier products over the analysis period. Availability of surplus natural resources in the developing and under-developed regions offers attractive opportunities for the industrial sector to raise their manufacturing facility.

Growing industrialization, stringent environmental protection laws, and awareness for controlling pollution are the important factors projected to influence positively on the market growth especially in the United States over the forecast period. The High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) technology segment projected to dominate the United States market over the analysis period as it is proved as the most effective technology for trapping the harmful airborne particles. The United States is projected as the most polluted country across the globe due to significant presence of industries as well as increased traffic population in the region. Transportation sector was examined to contribute nearly 20% for the overall pollution in the region. In the wake of same, government has issued stringent regulations to curtail the rising air pollution. 

Technology Insights

HEPA technology segment held the majority of value share in the year 2019 and projected to exhibit substantial growth over the analysis period. HEPA filters are extremely efficient in trapping the airborne particles such as smoke, pollen, dust, and bio-contaminants.

On the other hand, activated carbon filters poses exceptional trapping capacity because of larger surface area of carbon granules that makes them very effective in trapping fumes, gases, and odors. Even so HEPA filters are significantly effective in trapping airborne particles they to trap odors, gases, and chemicals. Consequently, activated carbon filters are largely used in combination with HEPA filters to enhance the efficiency of the air purifiers.

Application Insights

The commercial application captured the largest market share of nearly 70% in the year 2019 because of rising demand of air purifiers in educational institutions and office spaces. Commercial applications include hospitals, offices, shopping malls, hotels, educational centers, movie theaters, conference centers, and other recreational facilities. Air purifiers are installed at commercial spaces in account to maintain the indoor air quality. Furthermore, rapid urbanization across the globe expected to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Besides this, the residential application anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of around 12% over the analysis period. Residential applications include residential properties and small & large scale homes. The Asia Pacific anticipated to exhibits the fastest growth in the residential application over the forecast timeframe due to increasing pollution levels along with rapid urbanization in the developing countries that include India and China.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific anticipated to be the fastest growing regional market during the forecast period. In addition, the region expected to lead the global market on account of various factors that include rising industrialization & rapid urbanization along with rising population with increased disposable income. Apart from this, the region has prominent reserve of natural resource that attracts industries to establish their manufacturing facility in the region, thereby escalating the air pollution in the region that in turn triggers the demand for air purifiers.

On the other side, North America projected to maintain its significant market share in the upcoming years. The market has grown at a rapid pace because of notable contribution from technological advancement and numerous applications. The United States is among the prominent countries that are active in controlling and monitoring the air pollution emitted from different industries. Furthermore, introduction to stringent regulations by the Environment Protection Agency and the Clean Air Act predicted to surge the demand for air purifiers over the analysis period.
