An air purifier removes organic and inorganic contaminants from air within enclosed area. These devices capture pollutants and particles present in the air and the clean air is pushed out into the living space. These trap the airborne contaminants such as dust mites, mold spores, chemicals, toxins, and odors. These devices are commonly marketed as ideal products for asthmatic patients and people suffering allergies from air borne allergens. The increasing pollution levels and related health related issues in New Zealand are expected to facilitate growth of the air purifier market during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of air purifier at commercial places such as hospitals, hotels, shopping malls, educational centers, conference centers, etc. is expected to further drive the growth of New Zealand air purifier market.
The New Zealand air purifier market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027) due increasing pollution levels and health issues. Air purifiers eliminate harmful air contaminants such as dust particles, pet dander, bacteria, viruses, and others. An air purifier is useful for indoor air purification, as indoor air can easily get contaminated due to cigarette smoke, plant spores, chemicals emitted by paint, mattresses, furniture, and pet dander among others. Indoor air is vastly contaminated as walls restrict the airflow in the room. Air gets contaminated and chances of airborne infection increase. Demand for air purifiers is expected to increase in New Zealand owing to the increasing need for reducing contamination and cleaner indoor air. Apart from indoor air, the pollution level outdoors is increasing steadily in New Zealand, which is expected to drive growth of the New Zealand air purifier market during the forecast period (2020-2027). Air pollution levels in New Zealand are relatively lower, however, they have increased rapidly in the recent past. Due to rising air pollution, there is increasing incidence of health issues among the population. According to Environmental Health Indicators, New Zealand (a New Zealand based research group funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health) in 2016, around 1,277 premature deaths occurred due to air pollution in the country. This death toll is expected to increase in the near future due to rising air pollution levels. Thus, the increasing indoor and outdoor pollution levels in New Zealand are expected to facilitate growth of the air purifier market during the forecast period.
In addition to purifying polluted air, air purifiers can be immensely useful for patients suffering from allergies or asthma by providing breathable air. The number of asthma patients (children and adults) in New Zealand is increasing at a rapid pace. For instance, according to Health Quality & Safety Commission New Zealand, a New Zealand government organization, in 2018, 110,000 children in the age group of 2 to 14 years, and 452,000 adults were suffering from asthma in New Zealand. Patients suffering from asthma and allergies are medically advised to install air purifiers in the home or office in order to reduce contact with dust particles. Thus, considering the rising pollution levels and increasing health-related issues in New Zealand, the air purifier market in the country is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.
