- Indoor Air Purification Market Segment Analysis – By Technology
The high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) segment held the largest share in the indoor air purification market in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% during 2022-2027. This air filter can theoretically remove 99.97 percent of mold, bacteria, dust, pollen, and other airborne particles smaller than 0.3 microns (m). In medical settings such as hospitals and clinics, HEPA filters are the standard filtration system. This is because high-efficiency air filters remove not only inorganic dust suspended in the air but also microscopic organisms that can cause serious harm. HEPA filters are highly efficient because they use thick, pleated media rather than the flat fiberglass media found in standard filters. which use a combination of interception, diffusion, and inertial impaction to capture microscopic particles that would otherwise pass through other filters. As a result, HEPA provides a significantly increased filtration surface area as well as a longer filter service life, making it the preferred air purification technology.

Indoor Air Purification Market Challenges
Drawbacks Related to Indoor Air Purification
Most portable or stand-alone air purifiers can only evaluate the air quality of a small area and don't have three-dimensional data collection capabilities. Instead of active monitoring sensor nodes, many air quality monitoring systems use passive monitoring sensor nodes, which require periodic and manual data updates. Through wireless or other networks, active monitoring sensor nodes can automate data acquisition, data transfer, and data storage. Due to the lack of active monitoring sensor nodes, technical limitations associated with specific air purifiers may arise, limiting market growth and negatively impacting adoption. The air purification industry is primarily driven by consumers. Air purifier manufacturers operate by gathering data on their customers' needs and requirements. Consumer expectations, on the other hand, are constantly changing because they prefer additional benefits and the product's core functions. Residential air purifiers, for instance, are expected to provide cooling as well as allergen-free breathing. At the same price as a basic air purifier, consumers prefer additional benefits such as fine particulate filters and ozone control applications. As a result, RD costs for new product launches are high. The aforementioned factors are just a few of the disadvantages of indoor air purification that are limiting the market growth.
