Air quality monitor market size analysis and forecast

Air quality monitor is a real-time environmental monitoring system developed under the EEC directive, which is related to emission monitoring and control of pollutants from large combustion plants. Its main role is to conduct air quality monitoring to assess existing pollution levels and evaluate the likely impact of future air pollution occurrences, generate data, and then determine air pollution status and trend information from the continuous air quality monitoring data. This information is used to determine whether the pollution control strategy recommended by the implementing agency gives acceptable values for reducing pollution levels, or whether new or additional control measures are needed to achieve acceptable levels.

Air quality monitoring and investigation itself involves the systematic study of a significant portion of the environment to define the interrelationships between sources of pollution, atmospheric parameters and measurable manifestations, and thus to assess the character and severity of existing problems.

Air quality monitor classification

The product types of air quality monitors can be mainly classified into two types: portable monitors and fixed monitors. Portable air quality monitoring systems are usually used for urban air quality monitoring, emergency air quality monitoring, unscheduled spot checks of key polluting enterprises, and are characterised by convenience and speed. Fixed air quality monitoring system is widely used in petrochemical industry, which can continuously monitor air quality and assess the atmospheric conditions.

According to the application, air quality monitors can be divided into indoor air quality monitor and Outdoor air quality monitor. indoor air pollution originates from both indoor and outdoor, airborne gases and respirable particles are the main sources of indoor air quality degradation. In some countries and regions, indoor air quality can be worse than outdoor air quality, especially considering that some people spend more time indoors than outdoors. The three main types of indoor air pollution are carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds.

Outdoor air pollution can be defined as the presence of solids, liquids, or gases in the outdoor air at levels that are harmful to human health and the environment; or that interfere with people’s normal lives. For centuries, outdoor air pollution has been thought of as smog, dust and unpleasant odours.

Air quality monitor market outlook by region

Regionally, North America, Europe, China, and Japan are the major markets, totalling nearly 90% of the global air quality monitoring industry market share in 2016.

Among them, North America is the main production base for high-end products, and its industrial scope is mainly distributed in the field of indoor air quality monitoring, with higher product pricing. Europe, on the other hand, has a better product base, technology concentration, mainly positioned in the high-end market, with a large number of products exported to the Asia-Pacific region every year.In 2016, Japan’s air quality monitoring industry market share accounted for half of that of Europe, and is also mainly positioned in the high-end product market. 

In addition to the region, the Middle East and Africa, fewer local manufacturers, product positioning in the low-end, but the future market prospects. India with the development of the industrial market, the future market potential is also very huge. However, the local industrial base is weak, mainly relying on joint ventures.

In today’s environmental pollution problems are increasingly being paid attention to, the emerging economies of the air quality monitoring industry demand rises

In recent years, global air pollution levels have been rising and government regulations to monitor air quality have become more sophisticated. Governments in different countries have set stringent norms to control air pollution, especially for the industrial sector. As the rapid industrialisation of emerging economies continues to accelerate, the air quality monitoring industry is also expected to gain importance, which is a valuable business opportunity that needs to be grasped.

Air quality monitor india demand

India is currently grappling with major challenges in air, water and waste management. Its legislative framework, though strong, is relatively weak in terms of enforcement. According to the World Health Organisation’s Global Ambient Air Pollution in Cities 2016 database, half of the world’s 20 most polluted cities are in India. About 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste is generated annually in 468 cities with a population of more than 100,000; almost 63 per cent of municipal wastewater and 40 per cent of industrial wastewater is untreated and discharged. India is also one of the largest and fastest growing emitters of greenhouse gases. In terms of industrial pollution, 30-40 per cent of India’s industrial units produce large quantities of pollutants. With approximately 3 million small businesses in the country, most of which use little or no pollution control equipment, there is an urgent need for the development of an air quality monitoring industry in India and a huge market demand for it.
