The air purification systems market is evaluated at US$21.054 billion for the year 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.71% to reach the market size of US$51.748 billion by the year 2026.

Air purification systems refer to devices that are used to reduce the levels of pollution in an indoor setting and hence improve the air quality. The demand for air purification systems has been increasing over recent years owing to the rise in pollution levels in various parts of the world, especially urban areas. The awareness regarding the harmful health impacts of air pollution has increased lately and is anticipated to contribute further to the rise in demand for air purification systems during the forecast period. Strict government regulations for the industrial emissions and concerns towards health and safety of the workers has prompted the industrial sector to have purification systems in their manufacturing and operating facilities, which is another prominent factor that is anticipated to surge the growth of the air purification systems market during the forecast period.

The recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease had a positive impact on the air purification systems market. The pandemic has made people more health-conscious which has led to a rise in the sales of products that are considered to be health-friendly. This led to a rise in the demand for air purification systems during the pandemic. Also, there are various studies that provide the link between Covid-19 mortalities and long-term exposure to air pollution. For instance, a study published in Cardiovascular Research by the European Society of Cardiology stated that a person who has been exposed to long-term air pollution has lesser chances of surviving from coronavirus. Studies like these led to increased awareness among people regarding the ill effects of exposure to air pollution on Covid-19 patients and hence led to a surge in the sales for air purification systems during the pandemic. The trend of using air purification systems is anticipated to continue even after the pandemic owing to the rising levels of pollution.

Rise in health issues due to air pollution.

One of the key factors supplementing the air purification systems market growth is the rising number of people around the world with health issues caused by air pollution. According to WHO, nearly 7 million people die every year due to problems arising from air pollution such as chronic respiratory diseases, heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. Out of those, 4 million deaths are caused by household air pollution which is one of the primary reasons for disease and premature death in developing countries. WHO has fixed a limit for normal air quality but more than 91% of the global population lives in areas which exceed this limit. Due to long-term exposure to high levels of air pollution and the deadly diseases caused by it, there is an increasing demand for air purification systems around the world which is anticipated to bolster further in the coming years. According to the State of Global Air 2020 by the U.S.-based Health Effects Institute, air pollution has become the biggest health risk in India and has caused over 1.67 million annual deaths in 2019 from stroke, chronic lung diseases, diabetes, heart attack, lung cancer, and neonatal diseases caused by long-term exposure to outdoor and household air pollution. Also, more than 116 thousand infants lost their lives in the first month of their birth owing to outdoor and household particulate matter pollution. WHO stated in its publication “Preventing disease through healthy environments” in September 2018 that 28% of mortalities among children under five years of age and 24% of total mortalities are caused by modifiable environmental factors. Owing to such consequences, the sales of air purification systems have elevated over the recent years and are expected to surge during the forecast period.

HEPA segment to hold a significant share.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, air purification systems with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can remove 99.7% of the airborne particulate matter from the home environment. It can trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. As the smaller air particles are the ones that are considered more harmful to health, HEPA filters are preferred over other traditional filters and are anticipated to propel the growth of the HEPA segment of the air purification systems market during the forecast period. Also, due to their ability to remove even microscopic organisms, these filters are the standard air purification system in medical settings. Moreover, an air purification system is labeled as HEPA only after being tested according to U.S. Military Standard 282 (MIL-STD-282) and is considered the highest certified and the most efficient air filter. Due to the HEPA filters been tested and approved against a standard, they are considered more trustable and hence are anticipated to continue to dominate the air purification systems market during the forecast period.

North America to hold significant market share.

Geographically, the North American region is anticipated to hold a significant market share owing to high consumer spending on health and the rise in the adoption of air purification systems in the industrial sector. The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness substantial growth due to the rapid industrialization and the severe levels of air pollution in many urban areas leading to a rise in the number of diseases caused by air pollution in the Asia Pacific region.
