UV air purification is a proven technology, and in many cases, the WHO and CDC have promoted the use of purification in laboratories, hospitals, operating rooms, and universities. In addition, UV air purifiers are recommended to improve air quality in both the residential and commercial sectors to remove particulate matter and dust, which is speculated to curb the spread of coronavirus. The novel coronavirus pandemic has put a few healthcare systems under immense pressure and stretched others beyond their capacities.

Now with the increasing cases of the disease, a lot of hospitals have started incorporating UV systems to disinfect the high-risk indoor setting, which, in turn, is expected to increase the product demand over the coming years. UV disinfection systems have minimum environmental impact compared to sodium hypochlorite and chlorine gas as UV is mostly affected by the electrical grid composition. This makes it a versatile technology.

As more and more electricity sources are becoming green, UV is expected to reduce its environmental footprint. Public health departments have recognized UV disinfection systems as an effective method of treating drinking water, reclaimed water, and wastewater. This has encouraged countries across the globe in incorporating these systems as they are safe and do not require any harmful chemicals to protect water resources and achieve sustainability goals.
