Asia-Pacific AQM Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific AQM market was valued at $779 million in 2015 and is expected to achieve a value of $1,506.7 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.9% during 2016–2022. Based on product, the outdoor monitors are expected to witness higher growth than the indoor monitors in the Asia-Pacific AQM market during the forecast period, due to the rising pollution levels and industry pollutants. Among the various types of pollutants being monitored, chemical pollutants monitoring held the largest share of the market in 2015 and is also expected register highest growth during the forecast period.

Based on sampling method, continuous sampling is expected to register the highest growth in demand during the forecast period, owing to the growing demand for the same by the chemical, fertilizer, and pharmaceutical industries.

Among the various end users of air quality monitors, the commercial and residential sectors are expected to generate fastest growth in demand during the forecast period, followed by government agencies and academic institutes, petrochemical industry, power generation plants, pharmaceutical industry, and others, due to rising population in the region and growing need for pollution-free commercial and residential spaces.

The AQM market is expected to witness the fastest growth in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period, mainly attributed to increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases, large-scale industrialization, and rising pollution levels in the region. According to the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, around 51% of the world’s lung cancer cases occur in Asia and 21% of cancer deaths in Asia are due to lung cancer.

Air pollution has become a major environmental concern in Asia-Pacific in recent years. The pollution produced by particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, volatile organic compounds, and tropospheric ozone is a big concern and challenge in countries in the region, particularly in developing countries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly seven million deaths every year occur because of air pollution and 70% of these deaths occur in Asia-Pacific. Air pollution has a huge impact on the food and water, and climate system of the region, as deteriorated air quality leads to acidic rains, which in turn has harmful effects on crops and animals. Combustion of fossil fuels is the prime source of air pollution in urban and industrial areas in the region. The burning of coal and biomass, such as firewood, animal waste, and agricultural waste, is the principal source of air pollution in rural and some urban areas of Asia-Pacific.

Increasing prevalence of smoking, rising initiatives taken by the government such as the Asia-Pacific Clean Air Partnership and Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in East Asia, implementation of stringent regulations to control air pollution, and growing awareness about environmental and healthcare implications of air pollution are the major factors fueling the growth of the Asia-Pacific AQM market. However, factors such as high cost, and limited temporal and spatial coverage by air quality monitors (hindering the complete assessment of air pollutants and their health hazards) are impeding the market growth in the region.
