Rising air pollution drives growth in air quality monitoring

According to market research released today Aeroqual is now a major player in the market for air quality monitoring equipment, a market forecasted to be worth $6,147.77 Million by 2019. The company is recognized alongside other major players such as 3M Corporation, Honeywell International and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The report states that ‘rising air pollution will be the most important growth drivers for this market’. Air pollution is a serious global problem and solving the problem begins with monitoring. However the report also cites the ‘high cost of equipment and lack of government funding for research’ as a barrier to growth. As a result the affordable yet accurate instruments designed and marketed by Aeroqual are a key ingredient to the global air pollution solution.
