Delhi Pollution

Delhi Pollution has been wreaking havoc and residents are sharing images on social media which only spells trouble. Moreover, people are also taking important measures to save themselves from the deadly and toxic air which is nothing less than choking the national capital.

As per a report by the Business Standard, in comparison to 2018, pollution masks and air purifiers have seen an increase in sales from 30 to 100 percent, which means a 70 percent sales increase.

Moreover, while Hindware is witnessing double the demand for air purifiers, there are other brands as well, which are likely to see an increase in the sales.

The report also mentioned that Haier has seen a striking increase in air purifier sales, particularly in the Delhi and the NCR region, which results in around 80 percent of the sale across the markets.

There are other concerns as well circulating around these purifiers, one of them being that these air purifiers are only responsible for recirculating the air in the room, which is not a permanent solution as the oxygen itself is not pure.

Blue Star has come up with the solution for this wherein the purifier will suck the air from the outside, purify it and let residents breath pure air for a change.

According to reports, sales of air purifiers for homes will see a growth at a Compound annual growth rate of over 29 percent from Rs 100 crore to Rs 275 crore in the year 2023.
