Rising Levels of Air Pollution In GCC Countries and Rising Awareness Regarding the Health Issues, Air pollution and Its Health Consequences are the Major Factors Boosting the Market Growth.

Air pollution is a major concern in the GCC countries, particularly in cities with high levels of traffic and industrial activities. The high temperature and arid climate of the region can also exacerbate air pollution, leading to respiratory illnesses and other health problems. As a result, there has been a growing demand for air purifiers in homes and workplaces, as well as in public spaces such as schools and hospitals in GCC countries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), outdoor air pollution is responsible for approximately 4.2 million deaths each year. Air pollution is responsible for an estimated 67,000 premature deaths in the GCC region each year. The report also found that the average annual exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in the GCC countries is much higher than the WHO guidelines, with levels ranging from 24 micrograms per cubic meter in Kuwait to 83 micrograms per cubic meter in Bahrain. In the GCC region, the major sources of outdoor air pollution include transportation, industrial activities, and construction. Indoor air pollution is also a concern, with high levels of humidity and poor ventilation leading to mold growth and the release of chemicals from building materials and furniture. In a primary survey conducted by Brandessence in 2020, approximately 89% of respondents in the UAE said they were concerned about air pollution, and nearly 61% said they were considering purchasing an air purifier.

In addition, as awareness of air pollution and its health impacts grows, there has been a rising demand for air purifiers in the GCC countries. Indoor air pollution is one of the human health threat problems in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. In these countries, people spend a substantial amount of their time in indoor environments due to unfavorable meteorological conditions, such as elevated ambient temperature, high relative humidity, and natural events such as dust storms. In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic has increased the demand for air purifiers with HEPA filters, which can help remove airborne viruses and bacteria. In a survey conducted by Brandessence in 2020, roughly 78% of respondents in the UAE said they were concerned about the air quality in their homes, and more or less 64% said they were concerned about the air quality in their workplaces. And, Qatar ranked first in the Arab region, in terms of exposure to concentrations of particulate matter, reaching a concentration of 76 micrograms per cubic metre (cbm) of air. Thus, rising health awareness among GCC country residents is also boosting market growth.

Growing Urbanization and Increasing Disposable Income in the GCC Countries are also Fostering Market Growth.

As urbanization continues to grow in the GCC region, with more people moving into cities, there is a need for effective measures to control air pollution. The use of air purifiers in homes, offices, and public spaces can help reduce the levels of particulate matter and other pollutants in the air. According to a report by the Brandessence market survey, the urban population in the GCC countries is expected to reach 63% by 2050, up from 54% in 2018. In addition, the GCC region has some of the highest rates of car ownership in the world, with many people relying on private cars for transportation. This has led to high levels of traffic congestion and air pollution in cities such as Dubai and Riyadh. In a survey by Brandessence, it was found that air pollution in the GCC region was responsible for an estimated 2,400 premature deaths and $21 billion in economic losses each year. The study also found that reducing air pollution could lead to significant health and economic benefits for the region. For instance, the UAE's gross national income per capita for 2021 was approximately more than 50 thousand USD. GDP per capita in Qatar averaged 61,705.34 USD from 2000 until 2021.
