Report Overview

The U.S. air quality analyzers market size was valued at USD 1.37 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2020 to 2028. The risk of strokes, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory issues, and lung cancer cases had witnessed growth in the U.S. owing to the deteriorating air quality. Declining air quality, coupled with the rising awareness about its ill effects, is expected to augment the demand for air quality analyzers in the U.S. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. government placed lockdown restrictions resulting in the shutdown of various companies, in turn, impacting the production of air quality analyzers. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for early detection of viruses and bacteria due to which companies are launching products with new features such as real-time air quality monitoring systems.

U.S. air quality analyzers market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The pandemic negatively impacted the manufacturers of air quality analyzers based in the U.S. as their R&D spending was reduced. However, the pandemic highlighted the requirement of sustainable development and energy conservation across the world. This, in turn, resulted in augmenting the indoor air quality importance, thereby fueling the market growth in the U.S.

The increasing adoption of air quality analyzers in the U.S. is attributed to the rising health awareness among the youth and the upper echelons of society. Clean and fresh air prevents the possibility of respiratory diseases, such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and pneumonia. The advent of the IT age is marked by the rising awareness regarding the health benefits of adopting a healthy lifestyle, thereby augmenting the adoption of air quality analyzers in the U.S.

Rising instances of wildfire outbreaks and spreads in the U.S. in the past few years and their impact on air quality are anticipated to fuel the demand for air quality analyzers in the country. Reports of the EPA on heavy air pollution in cities such as Los Angeles and Bakersfield are expected to generate awareness among the masses regarding the importance of monitoring and maintaining indoor air quality, which will boost market growth in the near future.

The U.S. market for air quality analyzers is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the ongoing industrialization, urbanization, and rapid population growth, which is leading to continuous air pollution. Air quality analyzers play a crucial role in controlling air pollution that causes health issues, deteriorating air quality, and environmental imbalance.

Product Insights

Portable indoor analyzers led the market and accounted for 57.7% share of the U.S. revenue in 2020 as they are simpler to maintain and repair as compared to the fixed indoor analyzer. Portable indoor systems consist of handheld devices used in a home setting or by workers in hazardous environments and need an easy-to-carry detector to measure the air quality.

Portable indoor analyzers can also be connected with Wi-Fi, have a dedicated application, and even have smart features. This helps in maintaining a record of the measurements taken by air quality analyzers. Portable indoor analyzers are simple tools for air quality assessors and individuals to gather real-time information on the indoor environment.

Fixed indoor analyzers are estimated to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% in terms of revenue from 2020 to 2028 as these analyzers help in detecting the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases in various applications. Fixed indoor systems are fitted onto a wall or ceiling. Fixed indoor analyzers are usually incorporated in commercial and industrial settings and are used to measure a variety of pollutants with the help of various sensors.

Breweries use fixed or wall-mounted analyzers to detect large amounts of carbon dioxide emitted during alcohol production due to the reaction of yeast as it consumes sugar to make carbon dioxide and ethanol as waste products. Furthermore, coolers used to store alcohol can even trap carbon dioxide, which could pose a health risk for workers.

Pollutant Type Insights

The chemical pollutant type led the market and accounted for 47.0% share of the U.S. revenue in 2020. The chemical pollutant segment consists of air quality analyzers that monitor the presence of chemical pollutants, such as ammonia, sulfur dioxide, carbon, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, carbon oxides, and volatile organic compounds.

The industrial segment consists of oil and gas, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and healthcare where air quality analyzers are essential for monitoring various gases and pollutants during various processes/activities. All these factors are likely to create upswings for the market growth over the forecast period.

The biological segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.5% from 2020 to 2028, in terms of revenue. Biological pollutants include molds, viruses, bacteria, mildew, and pollen grains, with the sources of these pollutants varying significantly. The demand for air quality analyzers has increased to combat indoor pollution and keep air quality under permissible levels.

Physical particles enter an indoor setting due to various factors such as woodworking, printing, operations of various types of machinery, and smoking. Physical pollution in a residential setting can cause various diseases and even death in some cases. Air quality analyzers are used in residential areas in order to detect the air contaminants, such as microbes, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter.

Application Insights

The commercial application segment led the market and accounted for 43.0% share of the U.S. revenue in 2020. The demand for air quality analyzers is rising from various commercial settings, such as restaurants, schools, manufacturing plants, hotels, laboratories, healthcare facilities, and other organizations, to detect contaminants such as sulfates, sediments, rust, organics, iron, and arsenic.

There are a significant number of OSHA regulations that require industries to maintain clean and healthy indoor air quality, which is free from chemical pollutants and particles. However, mold, mildew, viruses, and other microbes primarily cause flu and cold. In industrial facilities where potential microorganisms thrive, various companies are investing in air quality analyzers owing to their capability to measure pollutants.

U.S. air quality analyzers market share, by application, 2020 (%)

The educational institutions segment is estimated to expand at the highest CAGR of 7.0% in terms of revenue, from 2020 to 2028. Most educational facilities are in areas of high population density, and the air in both indoor and outdoor spaces can be polluted by a wide range of contaminants. As a result, educational institutions have started utilizing air quality analyzers to measure indoor air pollution and take preventive actions.

Increasing consumer awareness regarding air pollution, rising prevalence of airborne diseases, increasing death rates, and allergic reactions caused by dust and molds in households are creating upswings for air quality analyzers to detect and take preventive actions to maintain suitable indoor air quality.
