“Air Quality Monitoring Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)”
However, the demand is likely to be restored, which is expected to further increase the pollution level from various end users. Major factors driving the market are the growing awareness among consumers, stringent air quality monitoring and control regulations, growing end-user industries, and increasing awareness among the common mass to mitigate health risks. However, the emergence of alternatives and renewable sources of energy with reduced/zero emissions and high capital required for AQM (air quality monitoring) products are expected to hinder the market’s growth.
Indoor application is expected to witness significant growth, owing to the supportive government regulations for air pollution monitoring and control and the growing popularity of smart homes/green buildings.
Technological advancements in the field of air pollution monitoring and the ongoing expansion of petrochemical and power generation industries are likely to create immense opportunities for the market studied.
Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period due to large-scale industrialization in emerging countries like India, China, and Japan.
Key Market Trends
Indoor Monitor Segment to Witness Significant Growth
An indoor air quality monitor is a device used to determine the purity of air in a specified area by the level of dust, suspended particles, and pollutants that are present. The quality of indoor air can affect the health and wellness of those who are breathing it.
Indoor air quality monitors are typically sensor-based instruments. They are widely used in industrial environments to measure common air pollutants, in some cases with ppb (parts per billion) level detection.
People spend around 90% of their time indoors, and human exposure to indoor air pollutants may occasionally be more than 100 times higher than outdoor pollutant levels, i.e., indoor air is recycled continuously, causing it to trap and build up pollutants.
