Air Pollution at its Peak in North India

The National Capital and surrounding areas are witnessing critical air pollution levels, resulting into a public health emergency in Northern India.

New Delhi: The air pollution levels in National Capital and nearby areas surpassed the safety mark, with level of particulate matter reaching nearly 517 micrograms per cubic meter on Wednesday. The record breaking pollutant level in the country is almost 10 times that in China and 30 times the World Health Organization's safe level.

The deteriorating air quality levels in the Capital urged the Government to announce closure of primary schools in Delhi and Punjab till Sunday. Moreover, the GoI implemented strict restriction on the entrance of Trucks lugging non-essential goods, ceased ongoing construction works and instructed civic bodies to impose a fourfold raise in parking charges in the region.

Thick poisonous smog is expected to swathe surrounding states including Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan till Friday. However, if the pollution level continues to persist over 48 hours, the Government is planning to relaunch odd-even vehicle rationing scheme.

TechSci Research depicts that the increasing air pollution due to vehicular and industrial emissions coupled with growing awareness about the harmful effects of indoor air pollution in the metro cities is going to upsurge the demand for air purifiers nationwide. With the doctors proscribing the citizens to indulge in outdoor activities, the sales of air purifiers are expected to catch pace, thereby driving the India Air Purifiers Market.


According to the recently published report by TechSci Research, “India Air Purifiers Market, By Filter Type, By End User Sector, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2011-2021”, the market for air purifiers in India is projected to reach US $ 209 million by 2021. Residential as well as commercial sectors are anticipated to generate high demand for air purifiers in India during the forecast period, due to rising disposable income levels of consumers and increasing awareness among people about benefits of using air purifiers.

HEPA combined with Activated Carbon-based air purifiers dominated air purifiers market in India on account of their high efficiency in removing particulate matter, odor and other harmful gases. Adoption of HEPA based air purifiers in the country is growing considerably in households, embassies, healthcare institutes, and other commercial spaces, and this trend is expected to continue over the next five years.
