An air barrier serves to keep air fresh and free from impurities. These air barriers are constructed according to the size of impurities desired to be removed, from large dust particles to microorganisms. Polyethylene foam is a commonly used air barrier that can be installed simply but innovations in this field have led to the development of advanced air filters that can remove the smallest of undesired particles while keeping the other components of air intact.
Today’s world has an increased demand for air barriers. Not only are they required to keep out ever increasing air pollution, but also to bridge over potential contaminants. The current COVID-19 pandemic has been testament to this fact. Enclosed spaces are kept free of this contagion by viral filtering systems. Demand in the air barrier market has thus seen astronomical growth since the start of this year. This trend should keep growth steady in the aftermath of this pandemic, and spanning the forecast period of 2020 to 2030, as per TMR.

Global Air Barrier Market: Key Trends and Drivers
- Air pollution is one of the world’s leading risk factors for death, attributed to 5 million deaths each year. As global industries rise to cater to increasing demands for their products globally, the usage of synthetic chemicals and other unregulated manufacturing processes should increase this form of pollution to higher levels. Already, various industrial and urban areas around the world are reporting unbelievable levels of air pollution. The individual can do little but protect himself and his personal space from this onslaught, which is how demand for the air barrier market is expected to increase in the future.
- COVID-19 virus is a respiratory virus that is transmitted through air. Apart from keeping oneself safe by applying masks over the respiratory orifices, people wish to protect themselves in enclosed spaces where risk of infection from this virus is increased manifold. Air barriers play a vital role here in filtering out viral particles and reducing the need for personal protective equipment. Even as this virus settles down in the future, demand in the air barrier market is set to remain high.

Global Air Barrier Market: Regional Analysis
North America and Europe are projected to remain the largest and fastest-growing markets for air barriers in the future. USA and Canada have been growth engines of the North American market driven by an extremely cold climate, stringent regulations, rapid urbanization, and increased awareness towards energy-efficient and economical green buildings. A hindrance to this market could come in the form of reducing levels of regional pollution as industrial output is outsourced to other regions of the world.
The Asia Pacific region (APAC) is expected to register steady growth in this market in the coming years. This can be attributed to the presence of a robust industrial base that is making this region the workshop of the world. As regional pollution rises, air barriers will become indispensable in these areas. Awareness about personal care is increasing among people, and as COVID-19 has hit these areas quite badly these two factors shall combine together to boost growth for this market even in the future.
