GLOBAL AIR PURIFIER MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
INSIGHTS BY TECHNOLOGY
The HEPA segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of over 44% during the period. One of the major reasons for the high dominance of this segment is HEPA filters are efficient to clean out around 99.97% of particulate pollutants such as pollen, dust, along with irritating particles and pollutants. These filters, however, are less efficient in clearing odor, chemicals, and gases. However, these filters require high maintenance, as they need replacement in every 3-4 months. The APAC region constitutes the highest demand with an increase in pollution rates and growth in commercialization.
The low operational and installation cost is expected to drive the ionic technology segment. China, Russia, and India are expected to have a high demand for ionic purifiers, particularly in industrial sectors. Despite several shortcomings, the demand for ionizers is increasing worldwide. Ionizer purifier is highly effective in the industrial sector as it produces less noise and is efficient in removing particles, which cause asthma and other allergies.
INSIGHTS BY APPLICATION
The commercial segment dominated the global market in 2019. The surge in demand is estimated to increase from hotels, offices, public buildings, educational institutions, and hospitals. Several established players have set up advanced R&D systems to cater to higher demand for innovative and cost-effective products in commercial spaces globally.
Industrial air purification systems are witnessing high adoption in the automotive, healthcare, power, and food manufacturing sectors. With the increased focus on the health of factory and industry workers, the demand for industrial purifier is expected to grow during the forecast period. Electrostatic precipitators are considered to be efficient and effective in removing particulates from the atmosphere in various heavy industries including cement, pulp& paper, power plant, and others.
The residential segment is witnessing increasing demand due to the increase in awareness of home pollutants. Indoor air pollution is considered as one of the top five environmental health risks. Therefore, the demand for residential purifiers is expected to increase in several regions, particularly in highly polluted cities. The growing number of severe respiratory diseases due to pollution is expected to increase the application of filters worldwide. Majorly HEPA filters are dominating the residential segment followed by ionic filters.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The APAC market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of over 43% during the period 2019–2025. The rise in pollution levels in several metropolitan cities is expected to contribute to the growth of the regional market. These cities have witnessed remarkable demand and awareness among consumers. In China, HEPA filters are in high demand as they are highly effective to reduce indoor and outdoor particles. As part of healthy living, several consumers in China have installed air purifiers in their houses in China.
Air purifier with mist eliminators is expected to witness high demand in commercial spaces in Japan. Air cleaners in the country have been increasing from the last couple of years due to the increased inclination toward a healthier lifestyle and the rise in airborne diseases. The favorable population composition and increasing disposable incomes are the key drivers in the Indian market. Several companies have launched smart air purifiers, which can be operated via smartphones. These technological disruptions are expected to increase the penetration rate in the country.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
The global air purifier market is in the growth stage. It has achieved popularity and high penetration in China, India, and the US. The market consists of a high number of players in these regions, making it highly fragmented and competitive. Major key players account for more than 60% share of the overall market in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. On the contrary, there are no significant players in countries such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia. There is an immense opportunity for vendors to expand their business in high polluting countries and densely populated regions. Philips air purifier market share is likely to grow on account of the growing market for home care appliances, which is increasing in sales and profits. Some European countries are under-penetrated with a large potential to be addressed. Mergers and acquisitions can help air purifier companies to penetrate and expand their reach, which is expected to be a key success factor for the air purifier industry.
