Which are Some Prominent Drivers of the Air Purifier Market?

Environmental Pollution Concerns Elevating Air Purifier Demand

As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the development of public and private infrastructure has surged, with massive construction projects being undertaken by major countries to develop seaports, airports, transport infrastructure and housing.

Unfortunately, these projects have led to increased pollution levels due to depletion of forest cover. Furthermore, residential and commercial buildings are increasing their dependence on air conditioners which contribute to particulate matter emissions. Hence, demand for air purifiers is increasing across all regions.

Light Technology to Play an Important Role in Driving Air Purifier Sales

Breakthrough technologies such as ultraviolet (UV) LEDs and photocatalytic tech are helping to break down pathogens and irritants. Startups in the air purifier market are resorting to crowd-funding techniques to successfully launch their models in the market.

The influx of air quality sensors is benefitting device manufacturers, since they work in tandem with purifiers to measure the risk of viral transmission and molds. They have the same ultimate goal of all air purifiers: to reduce indoor air pollutants. The technology is also referred to as UV germicidal irradiation, or UVGI air purifiers.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Air Purifier Market?

Reduction of Defense Spending in developed economies to Hamper Market Growth

The decline in the global defense expenditure due to defense budget reductions by key defense spending nations. The defense market is impacted mainly by the reductions in the defense spending by the U.S., which is the highest spending nation in the world, accounting for nearly 40.0% of the global defense expenditure.

The declaration of reduction in the defense spending till 2022 by the U.S. government has impacted the global defense equipment manufacturer's market. This factor may adversely affect the demand for Air Purifiers for the military end-use industry.
