In terms of filter types, the market is divided into HEPA + Activated Carbon, Pre-filter + HEPA, HEPA, and Others which includes (Ion & Ozone, Electrostatic precipitator, HEPA+ Activated Carbon+ Ion Ozone, etc.). Among them, HEPA + Activated Carbon air purifiers accounted for the largest market share of more than 31% in 2020, as these purifiers have no side effects on human health and provide highly efficient air purification. On the other hand, Pre-filter + HEPA is the fastest growing filter as HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air, and as the name says, these filters are designed to remove 99.97% of all airborne pollutants 0.3 microns or larger from the air that passes through the filter (these include tobacco smoke, household dust, and pollen).
Based on end-use, the market is divided into Non-Residential/Commercial and Residential/Household sectors. Among them, Non-Residential/Commercial segment dominated the majority of the market in 2020 and is expected to do so in future as well, because of installation of air purifiers in schools, colleges, corporate offices, government buildings, embassies, and other buildings to curb growing incidences of respiratory and pulmonary diseases.
