The global air scrubbers market was valued at $1,883.3 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $4,306.4 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2030. 

An air scrubber employs purifying filters to assist remove impurities from the air as it circulates through the system. The scrubber removes contaminated air from the area many times an hour while also pumping in new, chemical-free air. A portable filtration system that captures airborne particles and improves air quality is known as an air scrubber. There are numerous sectors that use air scrubbers to address indoor air quality concerns. A filtration system is the greatest answer for filtering out harmful airborne particles if the working space lacks clean, healthy air.


The worldwide air scrubber market is being propelled by rising concerns about indoor air quality as a result of rising air pollution and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, air scrubbers are now widely used in a variety of commercial and industrial settings. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of airborne diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, lung cancer, and other respiratory disorders, is expected to drive market growth in the coming years. Increasing investments and supporting government policies and initiatives to conform to air quality index standards and greenhouse gas emission restrictions are also predicted to boost the market growth over the forecast period. However, a lack of knowledge about air scrubbers and their benefits can hamper the industry expansion. Furthermore, high costs of air scrubbers may limit market expansion.

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing enormous impact on lives of people and overall community. Originating as a crisis to human health, it now poses significant threat to worldwide trade, economy, and finance. Due to the continuous lockdown in key global countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted production of many items in the air scrubber business. Market players can afford a complete lockdown only for a limited period, after which they would have to alter their investment plans. Furthermore, number of COVID-19 cases are expected to reduce in the near term as vaccine for COVID-19 has been introduced in the market. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of air scrubber companies at their full-scale capacities, which would aid the market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection instances start to decline, equipment and machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks in order to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Various companies are improving their product portfolio by launching air scrubber with advance technology to strengthen their foothold in the market. For instance, in February 2020, the U.S. based Parker Hannifin Corporation launched new Pleated filters for dust collection. The ProTura SB nano-pleated filters use the most advanced nano-fiber filtration technology, which also helps reduce moisture level.

Dry segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

Furthermore, in April 2021, the company launched portable system that uses advanced filtration and irradiation technology to purify the air for indoor spaces. The combination of ultraviolet energy and True-HEPA filtration captures, irradiates, and filters bacteria, dust, mold spores, odors, and virus particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is about 250 times smaller than a human hair. Hence, rising air pollution is forcing key players to come up with advance technology air scrubbers and therefore, it will boost the market during the forecast period.

Portable air scrubbers are designed to be conveniently moved around by a single operator. This high level of convenience provided by air scrubbers is a major element that renders them unsuitable for use in areas such as hospitals, construction sites, universities, and other similar settings. Few companies are launching portable air scrubber with latest technologies for clean air by killing virus and bacteria. For instance, in January 2021, Waves Aircon has launched its KJ series of air scrubber. This series products are equipped with latest technology that purifies the air and efficiently removes air particles and at the same time can sterilize the air by killing viruses and bacteria.

Metal Processing segment holds dominant position in 2020

Air pollution is one of the major causes for health and environmental problems on the global scale. Formation of thick smog and rise in frequency of acid rain have indicated that the outdoor air pollution has been increasing at an alarming rate. Indoor air pollution has similar negative effects as that of the outdoor pollution. In industrial workspaces, the indoor air quality (IAQ) is degraded by the presence of dust and fine particles generated by the activities carried out in the factory such as metal cutting, welding, or use of powdered raw materials in food & beverage industry. These processes generate smoke, chemical fumes, and fine dust, which get concentrated in enclosed industrial spaces, thereby affecting the occupants to a large extent. Indoor air pollution contributes to approximately 1.6 million premature deaths every year, within which majority of fatalities are reported from low-income countries with less awareness regarding indoor air purification. Thus, alarming deterioration of air quality augments the demand for air purifiers, which drives the growth of the air scrubbers market.

Industrial workers majorly in small enterprises, agriculture, construction, informal sector, and other industries face certain occupational risks and hazards, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and lung cancer. Their prevalence is increasing due to lack of enforcement of occupational health and safety standards. Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), occupational risks such as noise, carcinogenic agents, ergonomic risks, and airborne particles resulted in 13% cases of COPD, 11% of asthma, and 9% of lung cancer, as well as other diseases, including leukemia, depression, and hearing loss. In addition, more than 85% of employees in developing nations do not have any kind of occupational health coverage. To overcome such problems, industries are enforced to employ proper working conditions to maintain the air quality, noise levels, and comfort levels for employees. This boosts the necessity to deploy air scrubbers in industries to provide suitable air quality, which, in turn, drives the growth of air scrubbers  market.

The air scrubber market is segmented on the basis of product type, filter type, end-user industry, and region. By product type, the market is divided into dry and wet air scrubber. By filter type, it is divided into HEPA filter, activated carbon filter, dehumidifier filter and others. By end-user industry, it is divided into food & beverages, metal processing, agriculture, construction and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, UK, Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa).

Analyst Review

The air scrubber market has observed significant growth in the past few years, due to increase in demand for processed foods and metal manufacturing. Individuals working in such sectors are exposed to the artificial environment of a confined industrial area on a daily basis. For example, a person in industry often works eight to nine hours each shift. During this time, the employee inhales smoke, fumes, and other tiny dust particles produced by industrial activities on a regular basis. Employees in this situation suffer serious health risks, which might have long-term consequences. As a result, industrial air scrubbers are required to maintain an interior industrial environment and to ensure employee safety. Hence, these factors will anticipate growth in air scrubbers market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, air pollution is a key contributor to worldwide health and environmental issues. Hence, various governments have come up with crucial strategies and plans to reduce air pollution. For instance, in 2021, Canada has come up with the Paris Agreement's 2030 climate objective of net-zero emissions by 2050, considerable reductions in air pollutant emissions are projected as economy cleans up. Also, for various industrial boilers and heaters, cement production, and stationary engines, the Multi-Sector Air Pollution Regulations are being implemented.

Hence, these government policies and regulations imposed on various industries due to rise in air pollution will increase the demand of air scrubbers and therefore, will provide a positive impact on this market during the forecast period.
