Sustainable Air Filters Enabling Better Indoor Environment and Improving Health

15 Jan 2021

The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic put more people at risk in areas where  air conditionings system are present as they can  transmit the coronavirus. Hence, the awareness of a safe and hygienic atmosphere has become far more of a concern because of the coronavirus. People have also been tracking clean air in their homes. As a result, sales of air filtration systems have been increasing since the pandemic. As per the manufacturers, since the start of COVID-19, they have sold tonnes of air filters and witnessed a massive demand increase.

Public health authorities and regional governments around the U.S. and the world are forcing large indoor space managers to improve the filtration used to stop the coronavirus's spread in their heating and air-conditioning systems. However, some HVAC industry leaders warn that the recommended filter supplies, known as MERV-13, are inadequate to satisfy growing demandand the situation is expected to remain the same in the near future.

With the invention of the high-efficiency particulate absorption HEPA air filters, the air filter industry has evolved drastically and has made significant innovations. The HEPA technology was classified until after World War II, when commercial and residential HEPA filters were permitted.

Recently, Brondell Pro Sanitizing Air Purifier with AG+™ Technology from Aurabeat launched by  Brondell, a pioneer in bringing innovative health and personal care technologies from around the globe to the North American market. This purifier is one of the only professional-grade air purifiers that can capture and eliminate ≥99.9% of the airborne COVID-19 virus. It is the only air purifier that has received certification from USFDA.

The market intelligence report published by BIS Research, titled Sustainable Air Filters Market, highlights that the market is expected to reach $23.17 billion by 2025. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.40% during the forecast period 2019-2025.

The requirement for air purity is rising continuously. This is mainly due to manufacturing processes that are increasingly sophisticated and sensitive, stricter environmental regulations, and growing comfort and health-conscious attitudes. Simultaneously, the need to reduce energy usage and emissions of carbon dioxide, along with the pressure on prices, is rising. Buildings are now more and more confined to natural ventilation. Energy-efficient mechanical air handling and, in particular, solutions for air filtration are in greater demand than ever before.

The three trends that have the potential to disrupt the growth of the market include antimicrobial, filter’s efficiency, and self-cleaning filters. The antimicrobial treatments is important.. In laboratory settings, existing therapies yield dramatic outcomes, but they only perform slightly well in real-world applications. Antimicrobial treatments can indeed be perfected in the future before filters for microorganism-killing are commonplace.

In case of self-cleaning filters, the study highlights that  replacing a filter every 30 to 90 days is the standard. Undoubtedly, in the coming years, self-cleaning filters will become as anticipated as self-cleaning ovens are today. No homeowner would have to perform this menial activity in that way.

It has been observed that industrial air filters are used in industries such as food, power, and cement. High capital and operating cost are required to install industrial air filtration because the purification of contaminated air in the industrial segment requires advanced filtration equipment, which results in increased capital investment. This makes the air handling system expensive to operate in terms of maintenance cost and energy consumption.
