U.S. Air Purifier Market Growth & Trends

The U.S. air purifier market size is anticipated to reach USD 4.19 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is primarily driven by the increasing concerns about both outdoor and indoor air pollution coupled with the health problems associated with them. Poor indoor air quality can cause fatigue, headache, and irritation of the eyes, throat, lungs, and nose, which can have a negative impact on the productivity of workers. Some air contaminants can cause respiratory diseases, such as asthma. Product adoption is increasing rapidly in the U.S. to minimize such health issues caused by poor air quality.

The strict standards, guidelines, and regulations about air quality in the U.S. are expected to have a positive impact on the market. For instance, the New Jersey Indoor Air Quality standard, N.J.A.C. 12:100-13 (2007) sets guidelines and standards related to indoor air quality during working hours in public employee-occupied buildings. Key manufacturers are focusing on acquisitions and mergers to expand their geographical reach and strengthen their position in the market. For instance, in January 2021, Lasko Products LLC acquired Guardian Technologies to strengthen its position in the home environment business with the help of Guardian’s expertise in air purification.
