HARSH WINTER SPURS HUMIDITY CONTROL MARKET: RISING CONSUMER AWARENESS MAINTAINS IT
San Antonio, TX - The humidity control market in the United States is currently centered around three major factors; comfort, wellness and efficiency. The concept of healthy homes, keeping living space healthier, overall wellness, comfort (from a temperature stand point) and cost saving and energy efficiency are going to drive the humidity control equipment market.
Weather conditions play a major role toward unit sales. There was significant growth in humidifier sales seen in 2013-14, due to harsh winters and recovery in the economy. In a similar way, the sale of dehumidifiers increases during spring (when it rains) and summer (when it is hot and humid outside).
Maintaining optimum humidity level is an important aspect in residential indoor air quality. Poor quality of indoor air has been associated with asthma, allergies, eye irritation, headaches and respiratory infections. The sale of humidifiers is further driven by cold and flu incidences.
Significant efforts have been made by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other organizations to educate homeowners about the importance of adequate relative humidity levels and poor air quality in home, leading to an increased awareness in the consumers. The increase in awareness will further stimulate the sale of humidifiers and dehumidifiers in U.S.
The key companies in this market include: Kaz Inc., Jarden Corporation, Essick Air Products, Inc. , Plaston International Corporation, Crane USA Inc, General Filters Inc., Research Products Corporation (Aprilaire), Therma-Stor LLC, Honeywell, Trion Indoor Air Quality Group , Frigidaire, GE and Danby.
