China to have world’s largest air purifiers

China: In 2014, Beijing, capital of China was declared the most polluted city in the world by World Health Organization (WHO), which was totally covered by smog. With increasing demand of air purifiers by commercial & residential sectors in the country, coupled with increasing government initiatives to decrease the level of air pollution, has forced to increase the market of air purifiers in China in 2015.

Soon, the country will have smog free towers in inner-city parks, streets, etc., where the pollution level is high. The towers will produce bubbles of clean air, which will get mix with the small particulate matters, and will be as efficient as small air purifiers, will help in decreasing pollution levels of the areas. The tower is designed by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and his team of experts, and owns the patent technology of the World’s largest air purifiers. Studio Rossegaarde is promoting Smog Free Project in the world, so that, the pollution level can be reduced in the globe.

In China, the tour will arrive in September, first in Beijing only, which will be comprising of ION technology, and runs on 1,400 watts of power. The work of the tower is to absorb the small pollution particles, and to clean the air up to 75%. The height of the tower is 7 meters, and can the clean around 30,000 cubic meters of air each hour.

Low-income cities are the most affected areas, 98% of cities are not meeting WHO air quality guidelines. As compared to 56% of cities of high-income cities.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research China Air Purifiers Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020”, the country’s air purifiers market is projected to register a CAGR of more than 34% during 2015-20. Chinese air purifiers market is dominated by HEPA based air purifiers, and their dominance is expected to continue over the coming five years. Patented technologies such as Ultra-Efficient Formaldehyde Catalytic Oxidation (UFCO), Plasma cluster technology, Nanoe G, HEPA Silent technology and Photo-Catalysis are also expected to gain stronger foothold in the Chinese market in the coming years. Among various end-user segments, the demand for air purifiers is anticipated to grow from residential sector on the heels of growing income levels, investments, and sentience about pollution related diseases. Philips is the leading company in China air purifiers market, which is expected to continue its dominance over the market during the forecast period.

 

“Instead of being a luxury product, air purifiers are being viewed as a necessity in China due to rising air pollution across cities and towns. Residential as well commercial users are increasingly adopting air purifiers for maintaining a cleaner, less-polluted environment. This is increasing the proliferation of air purifiers across China and making air purifier a widely-needed consumer product in the country.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a global management consulting firm.

 

According to TechSci Research, the companies should try to focus and develop technologies such as these towers, which helps in decreasing pollution level, not only of separate and individual areas, but as a whole around the surrounding including park and streets. The trend of using the combination of multiple technologies such as HEPA & Activated Carbon, HEPA & Ion Ozone, HEPA, Activated Carbon & ION Ozone, Etc., to increase the efficiency of air purifiers, can also applied here, as when technologies are combined, performance increases. Coupled with increasing government initiatives to decrease the pollution level of China, will help in increasing the market for air purifiers in the country in the forecast period.
