Why are Air Purifier Sales Increasing Rapidly across the U.S.?

“Integration of Smart Air Purifiers in Smart Home Ecosystems”

Smart air purifiers are sleek, portable, and easy-to-use smart home devices that automatically clean the air around. These purifiers can be controlled via an app and allow the user to control fan speed and runtime via a smartphone, and keep an eye on the temperature, air quality, and other particulate pollutants. These tech-savvy air purifiers are also compatible with other smart home products such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, etc.

A built-in air quality monitor with the strength of electrostatic charging technology allows to automatically monitor, react, and purify the indoor air. Smart air purifiers come with electronic touch controls, making it easy to adjust fan speed and the functionality of connecting them to Wi-Fi.

Smart air purifiers also offer powerful filtration technology as they come equipped with a true HEPA filter, which can capture 99.7% of unwanted airborne particles such as dust, lint, allergens, bacteria, viruses, spores, pet danger, etc., with their electrostatic technology.

Furthermore, smart purifiers come with a filter life tracker in different shapes and sizes to allow consumers to choose as per their needs.

Rising popularity of these smart air purifiers across the U.S. will only drive market growth over the coming years.

“Environmental Pollution Concerns Elevating Air Purifier Demand”

Increasing globalization and infrastructural development along with massive construction projects being undertaken to develop transport, housing, airports, etc., have led to a rise in pollution levels due to the depletion of forest covers. High dependence on air conditioners is contributing to particulate matter emissions, propelling the need to install air purifying units.

For instance, in the United States, most premature deaths are caused by air pollution, which is often produced by burning fuel for transportation, power generation, and residential & commercial heating. Thus, concerns about rising pollution levels are anticipated to elevate the demand for air purifying systems for residential, commercial, and industrial settings in the United States.

Region-wise Insights

Which Regions of the U.S. Account for Higher Demand for Air Purifiers?

The Mid-West U.S. air purifier market and South-East U.S. air purifier market hold 27.6% and 23.9% shares, respectively, in the overall United States market. These regional markets are predicted to rise 8.9% and 8.5% CAGRs throughout the forecast years.

Several factors are supplementing the demand growth for air purification in these regions. Rising smog and air pollution cases are expected to propel the adoption of air purifiers, thus complementing regional market growth. Increasing urbanization and rapid industrialization are somehow affecting the ecological balance and are deteriorating the air quality.

Therefore, rising awareness regarding the health hazards and diseases caused by exposure to harmful particulates will positively impact market growth.

In addition, air quality standards developed by the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States and the U.S. Clean Air Act and other emission reduction strategies are likely to lead to lucrative revenue opportunities for manufacturers in the United States air purifier market.

Implementation of regulatory actions and organizing management programs to create awareness among people will also drive the demand for air purifying units over the coming years.

Will HEPA Filter Technology Continue Dominating the U.S. Marketplace?

Under the technology segment, the market is segmented into HEPA filters, activated carbon filters, ionic filters, ultra-violet (UV) technology filters, and others.

Amongst them, the HEPA filters segment accounts for 63.8% share of the overall market. The segment is likely to register a 6.7% CAGR throughout the forecast years on the back of these filters being highly reliable and efficient in trapping airborne particles such as dust, pollen, smoke, etc.

Activated carbon filters constitute small pieces of carbon in granular or powdered form and are treated with oxygen to open the pores of carbon atoms, thereby increasing the surface area of carbon, making it porous, thereby augmenting the ability to absorb airborne particles.

The activated carbon filters segment holds a 16.2% market share and is predicted to rise at a CAGR of 5.9% on the back of the use of these filters for absorbing gases and odors from chemicals, cooking, pets, smoke, etc.

Ionic filters hold 6.6% share in the overall market and as they are not required to be replaced frequently; however, their market penetration is likely to increase over the coming years. The segment is projected to rise at 4% CAGR over the assessment period.

Why are Commercial Air Purifiers Seeing High Sales across the United States?

The air purifier market in the U.S., under the use case, is segmented into residential, commercial, and industrial.

The commercial use case of air purifiers holds a 47.7% market share and the segment is projected to expand at 6.8% CAGR during the assessment period. Air purifiers are widely used across several commercial places such as hotels, offices, hospitals, movie theaters, conference centers, etc.

Activated carbon and HEPA air purifiers are mainly used in restaurants and hotels for removing smoke, odor, and other airborne particulates, thereby improving air quality. The use of air purifiers in commercial places helps in maintaining indoor air quality for the people working in those facilities and limits the spread of infectious diseases.

The other segments of residential and industrial hold 14.9% and 37.3% shares, respectively, in the market. These segments are predicted to expand at 10.9% and 3.8% CAGR during the forecast years.

Rising awareness about the health risks caused by indoor air pollutants is driving the adoption of air purifiers for residential applications. Furthermore, several industries such as printing, food & beverages, chemicals, manufacturing, etc., make use of air purifying units to eliminate smoke, dust, and other harmful air particulates that are harmful to their employees.
