Smog Protection Market Overview

Smog Protection Market size is forecast to reach US$ 9.4 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 3.5% during 2021-2026. Globally, rising pollution from chemicals, particulate matter, and biological materials as well as smoke from chimneys, automobile exhaust, and ruining of fossil fuels are driving the demand for smog protection products. Additionally, rising health consciousness and increasing airborne diseases have raised the use of smog protection products such as air purifies and anti air pollution masks. 

Increasing use of carbon filter with high- efficiency particulate air filter together in air purifiers to absorb the harmful gases such as nitrogen oxides, and sulphur oxides as they come through the filter, have also raised the market growth. However, the increasing ozone gas emission from various air purifiers is anticipated to create hurdles for the growth of the global smog protection industry in the forecast era.

Impact of Covid-19

The COVID-19 pandemic and outbreak has reduced the demand for smog protection products such as air purifiers and anti air pollution masks worldwide. Furthermore, the smog protection industry has currently faced with significant growth with regards to ramping up manufacturing capacities to help mitigate the supply demand for masks and air purifiers. Thus, this will lead to the inclination in the smog protection market over the year 2021.

Smog Protection Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type

Air Purifier segment held the largest share in the smog protection market in 2020. Air purifiers can help to refresh stale air, reducing the risk of health problems induced by indoor contaminants, which can cause respiratory infections, neurological problems, and exacerbate asthma symptoms. Increasing use of air purifiers of high quality to remove a variety of indoor air contaminants, to keep people safe has raised the growth of the market. 

Furthermore, as per the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indoor air is estimated to be five times as polluted as outdoor air. Since indoor air is not as well circulated as outdoor air, many airborne contaminants thrive within. Thus, due to which the usage of air purifiers is increasingly seen in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. With the rising demand for air purifiers the market for smog protection is also estimated to rise over the forecast period.

Smog Protection Market Segment Analysis - By Filter Type

High- Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters held the largest share in the smog protection market in 2020. HEPA filters are extremely effective at capturing airborne particles such as dust, smoke, and biological pollutants. Owing to its high quality and dependability in removing airborne particles, the demand for HEPA filters are expected to see upsurge in the global smog protection market. 

HEPA filter is designed to filter out 99.97 percent of all particles with a size of 0.3 microns or smaller. Also, HEPA filter is designed to eliminate PM2.5 contaminants from the air, such as tyre and brake dust, as well as certain vehicle emissions. 

However, VOCs and other gaseous contaminants such as nitrous oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and carbon monoxide are not removed by HEPA filters. Thus, the rising usage of HEPA filters will drive the growth of the smog protection market.

Smog Protection Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Commercial sector held the largest share in the smog protection market in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Increasing use of air purifiers in commercial buildings such as in offices, healthcare, educational institutes, movie theaters, shopping malls, conference centers, and other recreational facilities, have raised the growth of the market. 

In hotels and restaurants, air purifiers with activated carbon and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) are used to remove airborne particulates, smoke, and odor from the air, thus improving the air quality. Furthermore, smog protection products such as air purifiers are used to eliminate allergens, airborne bacteria, and odor from the air and preserve indoor air quality for patients and workers in dental and medical laboratories, veterinary hospitals, boarding kennels, animal kennels, clinics, and hospitals. Therefore, with the growing demand for air purifiers in the commercial sector the demand for smog protection market is expected to grow in the forecast period.

Smog Protection Market Segment Analysis - Geography

Asia Pacific held the largest share with 35% in the smog protection market. Rising usage of smog protection products such as air purifiers in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings and expanding usage of masks for personal use are majorly driving the demand for smog protection market in this region. Moreover, rising smog and air pollution cases, particularly in countries such as India and China, are expected to boost air purifier adoption, complementing regional market growth. 

The increasing use of advanced air pollution monitoring systems, as well as the introduction and implementation of regulatory measures and the organization of air quality management program to raise public awareness, are expected to drive up demand for smog protection market in the forecast period.

Smog Protection Market Drivers

Increasing demand for masks for personal use

The rising prevalence of multiple respiratory disorders, such as bronchitis, asthma, COPD, and others, as a result of increased air pollution levels, has fueled demand for masks. In addition, growing public health issues have fueled the need for air filtering products such as masks for both personal and professional use. Furthermore, the introduction of strict regulations for ensuring labor protection in a variety of industries, such as manufacturing, mining, transportation, and others, has driven the usage of masks. Moreover, a number of government and non-government organizations are conducting public awareness campaigns to promote the use of masks for personal use. Thus, this is also driving the growth of the smog protection market.

Smog Protection Market Challenges

Rising Ozone Emissions

Ozone is generated by some air purifiers, including ozone generators, electrostatic precipitators, and ionizers. The gas is found in the upper atmosphere naturally, but it's also a common component of man-made smog. Ozone-producing air purifiers produce ozone gas as a means of removing bacteria and chemicals from the air. Some electrostatic precipitators and ionizers, on the other hand, unintentionally produce ozone as a byproduct of their operation. Also, ozone exposure is toxic to cells in the lungs and airways, according to the California Environmental Protection Agency. Shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness are all possible side effects of exposure to the gas. As a result of ozone exposure, patients with asthma or other preexisting health conditions can experience worsening symptoms. Hence, the emission of ozone from various air purifiers will affect the growth of the smog protection market.

Smog Protection Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the smog protection market. Major players in the smog protection market are Honeywell International, Inc., Koninklijke Philips N.V., Unilever PLC, IQAir, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., LG Electronics, Dyson, Panasonic Corporation, Sharp Electronics Corporation, Whirlpool Corporation, and others.

Acquisitions/Technology Launches

  • In November 2019, Philips India, a subsidiary of Royal Philips of the Netherlands, unveiled the Philips 800 series, a new line of revolutionary budget air purifiers that enhanced the company's existing air purifier portfolio in India.
