Air Purification Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Product Type (Activated Carbon Filtration, HEPA, Ionizer Purifiers, UVGI, and Others) and Application (Commercial, Residential, and Industrial)

Publication Month: Sep 2022 | Report Code: TIPRE00014336 | No. of Pages: 174 | Category: Manufacturing and Construction | Status: Published

The air purification market is expected to grow from US$ 23,809.52 million in 2021 to US$ 73437.36 million by 2028. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.7% from 2021 to 2028.

The increase in airborne diseases owing to the rise in air pollution is a key factor attributed to the market's growth. Furthermore, growing awareness among the consumer about using air purifiers, a rise in disposable income, and an improved standard of living are the prominent factors boosting the market growth. The growing trend toward adopting portable and smart air purifiers is further propelling the market dynamics over the forecast period. The supportive government initiatives pertaining to emission standards, enforcement of workforce health and safety regulations, and amendment of existing air purity policies further strengthen the market dynamics for the air purification market. For instance, in August 2021, India had planned to re-establish the new national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) in 2022.

The new standards include ultra-fine particulate matter constituents, which fall below PM2.5 under more pollutants. Also, in September 2021, The World Health Organization (WHO) introduced new Global Air Quality Guidelines (AQGs) to protect populations' health by reducing levels of key air pollutants that contribute to climate change. Thus, such initiatives further augment the need for air purification products, driving the market outlook over the forecast period.

The global demand for portable air filters is a key trend that is proliferating the market. Lifestyle change directly impacts people's health, augmenting the need for air purification products. Portable air purifiers employ a HEPA-13 filter, a carbon filter, and an antimicrobial coating on said filters to prevent bacterial growth. These filters are quite effective and trending in terms of adoption. The rising pollution level and an increasing number of airborne diseases have accelerated the demand for portable air filters. The Simon Fraser University researchers study finds that having a portable air cleaner in the home can reduce the negative impacts of air pollution on brain development in children. The ongoing investments in portable air filters are aiding the market to flourish.

The air purification market study primarily focuses on two segments, namely, product type and application. The product type segment is further sub-segmented into Activated Carbon Filtration, High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA), Ionizer Purifiers, Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI), and others. The application segment is further segmented into commercial, residential, and industrial. By geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Air Purification Market


Denmark, Poland, and France are among the countries with high air pollution levels. The environment is positively impacted by government regulations in various European countries regarding developing environmentally friendly buildings in the residential and commercial sectors. The region is a major manufacturing and industrial center for industrial equipment, automotive, construction, energy, and power industries. However, due to business lockdowns, travel bans, and supply chain disruptions in 2020, some of these industries have declined in the region, significantly reducing air pollution. However, growing concerns about the safety of SARS-CoV-2 have increased the demand for air purifications.

Government-imposed lockdowns kept people indoors in 2020, boosting sales of residential air purifications. Various international air purification manufacturers see the pandemic as an opportunity. For example, South Korean air purification giant, Coway, has expanded into Europe due to the growing demand for air purifications in the region. The company took over the integration team from Serviceplan and the unit from the Plan.Net agency. Therefore, increasing air pollution and pollution caused by viruses and bacteria provide growth opportunities for the Europe air purification market players.
