Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
An air purifier is a type of air cleaner’s devices that are used to eliminate the contaminants from the air in the close room and also enhance the quality of the air. Air purifier comprises of filter, a fan that circulates and sucks that air, and multiple filters. The devices work by capturing pollutants and particles present in the air and the clean air is pushed back out into the living space. They trap the airborne contaminants such as dust mites, mold spores, chemicals, toxins, and odors. Ozone generators, electrostatic precipitators, ultraviolet light air purifiers, and activated carbon are some of the types of air purifiers. All these air purifiers remove all the harmful elements from the air while distributing fresh air in the room.
