Air humidifiers are likely to experience high demand in colder geographical areas as heating systems dry air causing chapped lips & skin, sore eyes, dry throat, sinus passages and sinus congestion. Furthermore, these devices aid in reducing static electricity effectively as it is predicted to be the major concern for electronic devices, computer storage devices and compact discs. For instance, a computer microchip requires 10 volts of static discharge to be damaged. Files on compact discs can also be damaged if a static discharge is released, causing an irreplaceable loss. Other minor complication related to static discharge includes unmanageable hair, paper jam in copiers as well as printers and dust attraction to TV and computer screens. Rising adoption in industrial applications is expected to catapult global air humidifier market size over the next seven years.

Dry atmospheric conditions are highly prone to static electricity production and may cause high interference with production equipment and other electronic machine operations. It helps in maintaining humidity levels between 40% R.H. and 60% R.H. In highly explosive sectors, dry air and its resultant static charge accumulations may prove extremely dangerous. Rising demand for these systems from hospitals owing to effective prevention, propagation & proliferation of biological contaminants offered is predicted to fuel air humidifier market size over the forecast period.

Air Humidifier Market, By Product

Warm-mist air humidifier market share is anticipated to surpass USD 580 million by 2023. Growth in the segment can be attributed to bacteria free air offered by these devices. Ultrasonic systems are forecast to exhibit considerable growth owing to quiet operation as well as low maintenance requirement.

Features such as ease of usability and simplified installation process are projected to drive growth over the next seven years. Dry air is likely to cause serious production troubles or material deterioration for hygroscopic materials such as paper, wood, fibers, textile, chemicals and leather.

Air Humidifier Market, By Technology

Portable air humidifier market share was over 85% in 2015, and is expected to remain significant over the next seven years. Growth in the segment can be credited to high convenience, mobility and portability offered by these systems. Whole-house systems are projected to witness moderate growth prospects owing low features such as power consumption and low maintenance cost.

Portable products require regular user attention as these devices offer the perfect medium for organisms. These systems are likely to cause health issues if not cleaned persistently or left unattended. High energy consumption and low level of control may hamper demand.

Air Humidifier Market, By Application

Right air humidity level is likely to assure high productivity as well as a sense of well-being among individuals, which is projected to be the chief driver across the residential sector. Humidification is anticipated to be a vital parameter for personal comfort in various indoor settings such as commercial and residential environments. Appropriate indoor humidification directly impacts the user’s comfort level. Substantial reduction in respiratory illnesses is anticipated to propel air humidifier market size from 2016 to 2023.

Optimized energy consumption accompanied by low operational cost is likely to increase demand across numerous industry sectors such as manufacturing & process data centers, hospitals and operation theatres. These devices ensure efficient humidity control, along with high compliance with the standards in force.

Air Humidifier Market, By Region

Europe air humidifier market share contributed more than 25% of the overall industry revenue in 2015 and is estimated to grow at 5.0% CAGR, mainly on account of colder climatic conditions in the region. North America, which was largely driven by U.S. air humidifier market size was over USD 300 million in 2015. According to ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) humidity levels ranging between 45% RH and 55% RH is ideal for data centers in order to prevent sparks generation that may cause serious damage to IT equipment. In addition, rising awareness of these devices is likely to result in adoption across hospital operating rooms as well as semiconductor manufacturing plants.

Competitive Market share

Key industry players contributing to global air humidifier market share include Armstrong International, Boneco, Carel Industries S.p.a., Carrier, DriSteem. Other prominent industry participants include Honeywell, Neptronic, Nortec Humidity, Procter & Gamble, Philips, Stadler Form, Vornado Air, and Winix. Frequent mergers & acquisitions describe the global competitive scenario. In February 2014, Armstrong International acquired Veris Incorporated. The move has helped the company to expand its portfolio of intelligent system solutions. In 2015, Stadler Form made technological improvements to its Oskar product offering. The updated model offers a reminder indicator that signals need of filter change. The added feature may help in increasing product sales.

Air Humidifier Industry Background

Air humidifiers are mainly used in order to preserve material properties, prevent static electricity buildup, and to ensure comfortable as well as healthy environment for residents or workers. Humidity specific industries such as printing, packaging, paper, textiles, plastics, electronics, pharmaceuticals and automotive manufacturing are likely to exhibit high demand for these products. Printers & paper manufacturers use these products in order to avoid paper shrinkage and curl.

These devices also play vital role in cold storage rooms for preserving freshness in food against the dryness caused by cold temperatures. Furthermore, art museums and galleries install these products to protect sensitive works of art, and also comfort visitors against dryness caused by heaters during colder climes. Any place or surrounding is prone to static buildup & sparks if humidity level goes below 45% RH (relative humidity). Between 45% RH and 55% RH, static builds up at condensed levels, whereas in case of humidity level of more than 55% RH, it ensures no static buildup.
