Air purifiers are home appliances that remove contaminants from indoor air to improve indoor air quality. They use HEPA filters to remove pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other airborne pollutants. Air purifiers are widely used in hospitals, salons, hotels, and households facing air pollution problems. The GCC region has witnessed rising air pollution levels over the past decade due to rapid industrialization, growing number of vehicles, construction work, and dust storms. This has significantly increased the demand for air purifiers among residential and commercial users seeking respiratory protection from air pollutants.

This growing health-consciousness is also fueling the GCC air purifiers market.
