What’s Impeding Air Purifier Sales Growth in MEA?

“Frequent Outbreak of Wars, Political Instability, Lack of Product Awareness”

Political instability in Middle Eastern & African countries has long affected their economic growth and made it difficult for businesses to survive as well. People in the Middle East & Africa region are not fully aware of the benefits of air purifiers and this is also a factor that is impeding air purifier sales in this region.

Increasing frequency of war outbreaks in this region is also a key challenge for any air purifier supplier operating in the MEA going forward. Cultural, ideological, and religion-related differences have been at the core of political instability in this region and are slated to maintain a similar stance across the study period.

  • In October 2023, a war between Israel and Gaza broke out resulting in increased political tensions not just in the Middle Eastern region but around the world. The war has resulted in the massacre of thousands of people including a majority of children in Gaza and Israel has shown no signs of slowing down thereby creating a very volatile environment for businesses in the MEA region.
