Surging Air Pollution Fueling Air Quality Monitoring Product Demand in North America

Surging Air Pollution Fueling Air Quality Monitoring Product Demand in North America

According to the World Bank, in 2019, the urban population of the U.S. stood at 270.66 million, accounting for 82.459% of the total population of the country. Whereas, the urban population of Canada stood at 30.63 million in 2019, accounting for 81.482% of the population of the nation. The increasing urban population is one of the primary reasons behind the surging air pollution levels, as it is responsible for the increasing number of vehicles in these countries. According to the government of Canada, most of the pollution is caused by forest fires, volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from vegetation, and volcanic eruptions. 



Owing to the surging air pollution levels, the governments of North American countries are taking several initiatives to create awareness about the harmful effects of air pollution. These initiatives will help the North American air quality monitoring market grow from $1,590.7 million in 2018 to $2,628.5 million by 2024, progressing a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period (2019–2024). The North America Office of the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP) is collaborating with the governments of Canada and the U.S., civil society, academic and scientific communities, and private sector to promote the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

The product segment of the North American air quality monitoring market is bifurcated into indoor and outdoor. Of these, the indoor category generates the higher revenue, due to the generation of a high volume of pollutants, such as asbestos, carbon monoxide, lead, bacteria and viruses, dust and dust mites, formaldehyde, secondhand smoke, and mold and dampness, in various indoor facilities. Whereas, the outdoor category will demonstrate the faster growth in the forecast years, due to the increasing industrialization and rising acid rain problem in the region.

The indoor and outdoor products are deployed in government agencies and academic institutes, petrochemical companies, commercial and residential facilities, pharmaceutical firms, and power generation plants to monitor particulates such as road vehicle dusts, earth crustal materials, combustion particles, and secondarily formed aerosols. Additionally, air quality monitoring products are also used to monitor pollutants such as ammonia (NH3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter (PM) 2.5, PM 10, lead, carbon monoxide, arsenic, ozone, and nickel.
