The global indoor air purification market size was valued at USD 11.34 billion in 2015. Favorable government laws & regulations and increasing awareness of the harmful impact of indoor air pollutants on health & well-being are expected to drive the global indoor air purification market over the forecast period.
Indoor air purification plays a significant role in the filtration of harmful pollutants present in the environment. Their increasing use in the commercial, residential, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, construction, automobile, and pharmaceuticals sector is anticipated to spur market growth from 2016 to 2024.
Growing urbanization in Asia Pacific mainly in China and India is expected to drive their demand over the forecast period. The reluctance of manufacturers to make huge capital investments in indoor air purification systems is projected to hinder the market demand over the forecast period.
The industrial sector is anticipated to dominate the indoor air purification market on account of stringent government regulations implemented for the health and safety of laborers at a workplace. The residential sector is expected to grow at the highest CAGR on account of increasing indoor air pollution level in urbanized areas and lower prices of residential air purifiers.
On the basis of product, the market is divided into dust collectors & vacuums fume & smoke collectors, mist eliminators, fire & emergency exhausts, and others. Dust collectors & vacuums accounted for the largest share in the global indoor air purification market. The market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period, on account of increasing industrial & residential demand.
Fume & smoke collectors occupied the second largest share in the global indoor air purification market. The extensive use of fume & smoke collectors in removing wet & dry vapors, gasses, dust, and smoke from an air stream is expected to drive overall market growth over the coming years.
Mist collectors occupied around 11.9% market revenue share of the global indoor air purification market in 2015. Mist collectors are broadly used to eliminate sub-micron contaminants in the plant’s atmosphere. These purifiers are low profile, highly-efficient, machine-mountable solutions for semi-synthetic, wet machining, with oil-based, synthetic, and water-soluble coolants. Mist collectors also have the ability to remove both small and large particles from indoor factory processes.
The indoor air purification market on the basis of technology comprises of HEPA, electrostatic precipitators, activated carbon, ionization, and others. The HEPA segment accounted for 40.7% of the total demand in 2015, among all the technologies used in the industry. This technology is used to trap harmful particles such as pollen, dust mites, etc.
HEPA filters are highly efficient as they are manufactured using ultra-fine and glass fiber media, which capture microscopic particles that may pass easily through other filters by a combination of interception, diffusion, and inertial impaction.
Activated carbon is anticipated to occupy the second-largest share in the global market. The increasing use of activated carbon in the manufacture of air purifiers for various applications is expected to augment market growth over the coming years.
Industrial application of indoor air purifiers is projected to dominate the overall industry. Favorable regulations on maintaining clean indoor air quality levels in manufacturing facilities and production sites are expected to boost its demand in this segment over the forecast period.
The residential sector is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The decreasing prices of residential air purification products used in rooms and kitchens are projected to drive the demand growth.
High demand for residential air purifiers is expected to arise from the Asia Pacific region on account of high pollution levels prevailing in some of the developing countries of Asia Pacific. The stringent guidelines implemented in the hospitality and healthcare segment is expected to increase the demand for air purification systems in the commercial sector.
Asia Pacific indoor air purification market led the global industry and accounted for over 35% of total demand in 2015. The region is expected to experience the largest demand for indoor air purification systems & solutions. Increasing demand across the commercial, industrial, and residential sectors in China, India, and Japan is expected to drive the regional growth over the forecast period.
North Americans are known to spend a maximum amount of their time indoors. Awareness pertaining to the increasing indoor air pollution levels is expected to drive the demand for indoor air purifiers in this region. The indoor air purification demand in North America is driven by the countries such as Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.
