The residential sector is anticipated to hold the largest revenue share in UAE Air Purifier Market during the forecast period– 6Wresearch.
UAE Air Purifier Market is projected to register considerable growth on account of increasing levels of pollution from the automotive and industrial sectors over the coming years. Moreover, seasonal variations in the country’s air pollution levels are also likely to propel the demand for air purifiers during certain periods over the coming years. For instance, the highest pollution levels are observed from February to March and June to August due to dust storms in the country and the demand for air purifiers is likely to register significant growth during these months over the coming years. The coronavirus pandemic is anticipated to impede the growth of the air purifier market in the country in 2020, on account of supply chain disruptions, downscaling of commercial and industrial activities, as well as the unwillingness of people to spend on non-essential items. However, rapid market recovery is expected to be driven by the resumption of commercial and industrial operations, along with increasing apprehensions among people about hygiene and communicable disease over the coming years.
According to 6Wresearch, UAE Air Purifier Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.9 % during 2020-26. Particulate matter and ground-level ozone (O3) pose a significant challenge to the country’s air quality and increase the risk of respiratory diseases. Humidification, filtration and odour elimination features, together with the rising adoption of high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter technology would help alleviate the health risk, thereby augmenting the demand for air purifiers in the country during the forecast period. The air quality in the United Arab Emirates is considered unsafe, especially for sensitive groups, based on WHO guidelines. The PM2.5 concentration in the country was about 3 times above the WHO exposure recommendation in 2019. Residents of the UAE spend 80% to 95% of their time indoors in order to avoid high temperatures and dust events. Rising awareness about the importance of clean indoor air quality among people would further propel the demand for air purifiers in the country over the coming years.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Manager, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, “Air purifiers with HEPA + Carbon technology are expected to register significant growth during the forecast period, on account of its effectiveness in removing odour and affordability in comparison to other types of air purifiers, combined with the preference of people in a relatively new air purifier market, such as UAE, to opt for entry-level products. Based on CADR value, medium CADR air purifiers acquire the largest share in cities such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi. However, other CADR segments are also likely to register considerable growth in the country during the forecast period, owing to the increasing awareness about the necessity of the product among people from different sections of the society.”
“Furthermore, there are regional variations in the air quality with regions such as Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, the region of Al Gharbia, and Dubai registering consistently high levels of air pollution, in turn bolstering the demand for air purifiers in the regions. Based on applications, the residential and commercial sectors are expected to witness significant growth in demand for air purifiers over the coming years, owing to extensive advertising by the major players in the market, which has led to an increase in consumer awareness within households, as well as increasing concerns about healthy air quality in schools and hospitals.”, Ravi further added.
According to Sanya Sethi, Research Associate, 6Wresearch, “The market for smart air purifiers is anticipated to register substantial growth in the country over the coming years on account of rapid adoption of new technologies such as the ‘Internet of Things’. Further, automatic air purification across different industries has gained popularity and air purifiers equipped with such technologies are expected to drive the demand for air purifiers during the forecast period.”
