Little wonder that sales of air purifiers have shot up. An air purifier is a small portable machine that removes bacteria, virus and particulate matter that can be inhaled. For the same amount of power a ceiling fan uses, it strips the air of major pollutants including dust, pollen, mould, dander and tobacco smoke using various filtration techniques.
Sharp air purifiers are priced between Rs 15,000 and Rs 30,000. "We sell 1,100 to 1,200 units a month," says Shuvendu Mazumder, national product manager at Sharp. "We are selling the most in Delhi NCR, followed by Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Bangalore and Mumbai. Forty per cent of our sales are to individual customers and of them 70% usually have a sick person at home."
