Car air purifier is a device which is designed to aid in getting rid of the polluted air present inside a car cabin. It refreshes the polluted air by emitting negative ions through technologies like high-efficiency particulate arrestor filters or active carbon systems. A car air purifier can be placed on the desktop counter or attached as a lighter type, though in most vehicles it comes as built-in product placed inside the air conditioner vents of the car.
The global car air purifier market is propelled by the rise in air pollution levels in urban regions. However, it is to be noted that countries of high income (Luxembourg, U.S.) have a low record on air pollution level compared to emerging and low-income countries (China, India). Another prime factor which is driving the market for car air purifier is its compact design, shape, and portability. Additionally, multi-functional development of car air purifiers like a dehumidifier, an air conditioner, and a fan to remove moisture, cool, and circulate the air inside the car, fuels the demand of this market. Such multi-functional properties are added to provide fragrance and fresh air inside the vehicle. Furthermore, the rise in demand for cabin air which is clean and free from toxins is estimated to drive the growth of the global car air purifier market.
Further down, among the different products of car air purifiers, the counter-top segment is witnessing a huge market growth owing to its rising demand for application in privately owned vehicles. Based on technology, the global car air purifier market is analyzed as an active carbon system, electrostatics, high efficient particulate arrestor (HEPA) filter, UV, and ionizers. HEPA filter segment currently accounts for one of the major market holders for car air purifier owing to its popularity in usage among the consumers. However, the active carbon system segment is estimated to witness a significant growth over the projection period owing to its efficiency in removing cabin air pollution. Moving forward based on vehicle types- passenger, light and heavy commercial vehicles are vigilantly taking precautionary measures in installing car air purifiers. Furthermore, the global car air purifier market has been geographically segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East Africa region.
Among all the regions, Europe is accountable for one of the major market shares of global car air purifier market. Asia-Pacific is another region estimated to lead the market for car air purifier over the projection period. This owes to the fact that both Europe and Asia-Pacific regions have a high number of privately owned vehicles and are affected by air pollution at large. This has raised the acceptance and demand rate of car air purifiers. Furthermore, the high rate of vehicle production and initiatives taken by the government to promote technological advancements in traditional car air purifiers will fuel the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific. The technological advancement of a traditional car air purifier is the smart air purifier which can be operated via an app on smartphones and controlled through smart connectivity by either a Bluetooth or a Wi-Fi connection.
However, price-sensitive consumers and non-standardization of products may pose a threat to the global market over the projection period. Countries with price-conscious customers do not prefer to spend on improved and premium products.
The major key players in the global car air purifier market include 3M, EcomVentures, Guangzhou Jincheng Electronic Technology Co., Limited, Koninklijke Philips, Nirvana Being, Panasonic Corporation, Purafil, Sharp Corporation, and Shenzhen Agcen Environmental Protection Technology Co.Limited.
