5 humidifier uses: Benefits and risks

Lately, automotive industry is deploying sensitive mechanical and electronic component. These components perform high-precision task. There is high risk of static buildup in dry temperature which could result in substantial damage of automobile and passenger. Thus, maintaining relative humidity (RH) level of 40-60% is recommended. This avoids electro-static buildup, thus, preventing the risk of any kind of related damage.

Among all the humidifiers available, North America indoor humidifier market is dominated by evaporative humidifiers. Ease of use and cost-effective are main factors driving demand for evaporative humidifiers in the region. Automotive and IT industries are majorly contributing to high demand for the humidifiers in North America.

Also, lucrative adoption rate of indoor humidifiers in textile industry, logistics sector, wood, pulp, and paper processing units are anticipated to drive growth in the North America indoor humidifier market.

Humidifiers are equipments or systems used to add moisture and retain desired level of humidity at a given place (space). Humidifiers can be broadly classified into ultrasonic humidifiers, warm-mist humidifiers, evaporative humidifiers, vaporizers and steam to steam humidifiers. These humidifiers are used across industrial and commercial applications.
The market for humidifiers in North America was valued at USD 212.4 million in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2014 to 2023, to reach USD 300.4 million in 2023.The North America indoor humidifier market is primarily driven by increasing adoption of humidification solutions in hospitals, datacenters, retail and cold stores, and educational institutes.
