Market Dynamics

Increase in diseases such as asthma, sinusitis, and other allergies owing to dry air have created awareness among customers to maintain specific humidity in the air by using humidifier appliances. Moreover, low humidity causes discomfort in homes in winter seasons and when air conditioners are used during the summer season. For instance, in an article published by Medical News Today in February 2023, tips to prevent or reduce eye strain suggested using a humidifier in a room to reduce dry eye syndrome, using eye drops, using glasses, and other tips. Therefore, these are the health-related factors that are expected to drive the humidifiers industry during the forecast period.

In addition, smart connected humidifier via smartphone for the residential sector is expected to further boost the market growth. Rise in industrialization and growth in concerns regarding a healthy work environment are expected to boost the adoption of humidifiers in the industrial sector such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and automotive. In addition, there has been a rise in construction of residential and commercial buildings such as shopping malls, hospitals, schools, and others are across the world. For instance, as of January 2023, a well-known building developer ‘Triple Five Group’ planned to construct the American Dream Mall near Everglades National Park in Florida. Such factors are expected to drive the humidifiers market growth.

Moreover, governments of different countries have made efforts to safeguard the workplace by imposing norms, rules, and regulations for the comfort of workers and employees, especially in the industrial sector. For instance, in July 2023, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) stated that office temperature and humidity are matters of human comfort. OSHA recommends temperature control in the range of 68° F to 76° F range and humidity control in the range of 20% to 60%. This helps prevent fatigue as well as dry air diseases among workers and provides a healthy work environment. In addition, these regulations are also followed by other countries with certain modifications according to the suitable temperature and atmosphere.

In order to prevent the spread of airborne infections, humidifiers must undergo routine maintenance because mold development is common on their interior parts, including the fans, filters, and other hardware. If they are not properly maintained or cleaned, humidifiers  cause sickness in the home and pose a health risk. As a result, the humidifier market is expected to be hampered by the growth of molds and other bacteria throughout the forecast period.

The development of innovative technologies by key players, including humidity level controllers and automated shutdown, as well as the conceptualization of remote controlling systems via smartphones, are anticipated to significantly contribute to the expansion of the humidifiers market during the course of the projected year. Key market competitors have concentrated on new product launches as a strategy for business expansion. For instance, Xiaomi introduced a Smart Humidifier 2 in August 2022 with UV-C sterilization and purification for improved comfort. The humidifier has a 4.5 L tank and can produce 350 ml of mist each hour. The humidifier offers one-touch control technology, smart humidity control, can be operated remotely via the Mi Home app. Such trends are expected to drive the humidifiers market and offer lots of growth opportunities during the forecast period.

Humidifiers Market by Type

By Type:

The humidifiers market is divided into vaporizer humidifiers, ultrasonic humidifier, and wick/evaporative humidifiers. The vaporizer or warm mist humidifier heat the water and expels steam into the room to increase the humidity in the air. This humidifier is also widely used in residential applications mainly because it collects all the essential minerals in the water, which are good for moisturizing human cells. Ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers are best used to combat allergies and seasonal flu symptoms. The ultrasonic humidifier is used in laboratories, print work, and manufacturing facilities, such as electronics, warehouse, and other.

Users have increasingly switched to ultrasonic humidifiers for reasons of efficiency, lower maintenance cost, and cost efficient in operation as compared to other humidifiers. In evaporative systems mist is produced by blowing water through a wick filter with the use of a fan. Hot air goes through a wet filter causing an increase in humidity and decrease of temperature. The advantage of this kind of humidifier is that the wick filter ensures a pure and clean mineral-free moisture output. Moreover, fans are powerful enough to cover large areas with a single humidifier. The vaporizer humidifiers segment is expected to exhibit the largest revenue contributor during the forecast period. The ultrasonic humidifier segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR share in the type segment in the humidifiers market during the forecast period.
