ADA, Mich., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the Verify Markets study of 2011 global sales, the ATMOSPHERE Air Treatment System is the world's number one selling brand of residential air treatment systems. Using overall 2011 global sales numbers from Amway, the research firm verified that the company has more than 14 percent of the total global air treatment system market share.
"Through the research Verify Markets provided, we found that poor indoor air quality, rising awareness about poor air quality, and rising medical costs due to health issues related to pollution are the key drivers for sales of air purification systems in most countries globally," said Mitchell Urbytes, director of Home Brands for Amway.
China was the largest market for sales of residential air purification systems in 2010, followed by Japan and the U.S. Clean air is vital to the health and well-being of everyone around the world. As people become more educated and conscious of health issues surrounding their environment, the need for clean air becomes a high priority in today's world of smoke, smog and other airborne particles.
"We're proud that our ATMOSPHERE Air Treatment System leads sales in the air purification category," said Urbytes, "But the greatest achievement is that our technology ensures a cleaner and healthier environment by reducing dust and allergens."
