THE South China Morning Post reported today sales of air purifiers are on the rise in China after the country’s unprecedented air pollution levels earlier this year.
Global air-purifier makers are seeing the bright side of the hazy conditions as concerns over air quality drive up demand, the paper said.
Blueair, a Sweden-based maker of air-purifiers whose products are sold in more than 50 countries, said its sales in mainland China soared 300 per cent year on year in the three months from last December to 20,000 units.
High levels of air pollution have raised the awareness of Chinese people about indoor air quality, said Sam Li, general manager of Blueair China.
“The smoggy weather conditions have helped accelerate sales of our premium air cleaners,” he said, noting that all the products in the Blueair range saw record sales in China over the past two months.
