What are the Projections for Air Purifier Sales in East Asia?
“Worsening Air Quality Stimulating Demand for Air Purification Systems”
Prominent cities from East Asia, including Shanghai, Beijing, etc. consistently grapple with increased air pollution levels. Vehicular congestion, industrial emissions, and a myriad of other environmental influences are also responsible for degrading air quality. Further, the consequences of these struggles with poor air quality are concerning and far-reaching thus affecting daily life, public health, and the environment in these bustling metropolises.
Rapid economic growth and extensive industrialization are resulting in increased emissions from factories, manufacturing facilities, and power plants. Release of pollutants, including volatile organic compounds, sulfur dioxide, and particular matter are contributing to deterioration of air quality.
Surging urban population and traffic congestion are becoming ubiquitous challenges. There are millions of vehicles flooding on streets regularly, emitting exhaust fumes that contain harmful gases, including nitrogen oxides. The air pollution issue is exacerbated by fine particles generated from brake wear and tires.
Poor air quality causes serious implications for public health. Prolonged exposure to impure air is linked to various respiratory diseases, premature mortality, and cardiovascular problems. Vulnerable groups, including elders and children, are at increased risk of encountering these health issues.
Given the alarming consequences of air pollution, an increase in the demand for air purifiers is experienced in regional cities. Numerous people are shifting to air purification systems for the mitigation of multiple harmful effects of outdoor pollution. These air purifying systems are also used for the maintenance of healthier indoor air quality.
