Humidifiers are devices that increase or maintain the humidity of the environment. Humidifiers have several applications in the residential and industrial segments. The most common types of humidifiers are warm-mist humidifiers, cold-mist humidifiers and ultrasonic humidifiers. The humidifier market is witnessing the high adoption of these products owing to the growing concerns about indoor air quality, maintenance of standard humidity in industries and protection from various air-related diseases.
The humidifier market is witnessing high adoption in the industrial sector, which is driving the market significantly. Stable economic growth is driving commercial and industrial growth, and this is resulting in the upgradation of infrastructure. The increasing need to maintain indoor air quality is driving the humidifier market. Governments of various countries are highly focused on energy efficiency and to maintain the minimum required humidity at manufacturing industries. These regulations and standards are significantly driving the global humidifier market.
Various types of humidifiers are being used in the industrial/commercial sector, which include ultrasonic humidifiers, warm-mist humidifiers, cold-mist humidifiers and others. The major industrial applications of humidifiers are in healthcare, automotive, textile, wood and pharmaceutical. Indoor air quality is becoming a critical parameter to ensure a healthy environment. Maintaining the required humidity levels is one of the important factors that define the ideal air quality.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the level of indoor humidity must be below 60%. The U.S. EPA suggests that the ideal humidity level must be between 30% and 50%. Various regional and international regulatory bodies are conducting health awareness programs that increase awareness about healthy living. Thus, an increase in the awareness about healthy living and indoor air quality are among factors expected to drive the humidifier market during the forecast period.
