As air pollution in Delhi continues to increase, sale of air purifiers have also spiked significantly. Manufacturers are observing a 30 to 100% rise in demand compared to the same period last year.
The current situation in Delhi NCR, where schools are being shut and there is an increase in the air pollution being reported, Air Quality Index (AQI) is all time worst, as a result, there has been a significant growth in the air purifier market.
The deteriorating quality of air that began with fire cracker pollution on Diwali last week, has now gotten worse after stubble burning (Parali) in neighboring states Punjab and Haryana.
While Hindware is expecting sale of its air purifiers to double this year, brands like Xiaomi, Blue Star and Daikin, too, are expecting significant rise in sales after seeing the results of AQI index in Delhi NCR.
Haier, which has recently launched its air purifying products for home, is already observing a spike in demand from the markets in Delhi and adjoining regions that contribute over 80% of the total market volumes.
Rakesh Kaul, president, CEO and whole-time director at Somany Home Innovation, a Hindware group firm, said that over the past three to four years, the degrading air quality and increasing concern towards health issues has increased sales of air purifiers and pollution masks in the country.

Companies are not only focusing on meeting the intensified demand as a public health emergency is underway in Delhi, they are also taking measures to ease the purchasing process.
Some of the firms are even concerned about the side effects of complete dependence on artificial measures like air purifying machines and masks as lack of any holistic measures to curb air pollution is haunting citizens.
People are also looking for suggestions from their social network about best air purifier in Delhi and asking about the brand you are using, so that they can get the correct feedback.

What Air Purifier companies are offering and natural option
Panasonic, for example, is offering extended warranty and consumer finance options to make purchases accessible and affordable, said Syed Moonis Ali Alvi, general manager for air purifier business at the Japanese firm.
A Xiaomi spokesperson said the company has set up a dedicated page on its shopping portal for air purifiers as well as pollution masks.
Management of other firms like Blue Star and Nirvana Masks are rather concerned about the unavailability of natural solutions to the growing problem.
However, people can also opt for air purifying plants instead of costly air purifiers that require electricity as well.
