Air fresheners release fragrance into the air of interior spaces as droplets that evaporate. Air fresheners are intended to add aroma to the air or mask odours in order to create a pleasant indoor environment. Despite their good intentions, air fresheners can emit and generate a variety of potentially hazardous air pollutants that can degrade air quality. The Middle East and Africa air freshener market is expanding, and products such as sprays, candles, plug-ins, and others are available. The region's demand for air fresheners is primarily driven by factors such as increasing urbanisation, rising disposable incomes, changing consumer preferences, and rising hygiene and cleanliness awareness. In the Middle East and Africa, there is a growing demand for premium and natural air fresheners. Customers want products that are not only effective at eliminating odours, but also environmentally friendly and safe to use around their families and pets. The COVID-19 pandemic has also aided the growth of the Middle East and Africa air freshener market. People are spending more time indoors, so there is a greater demand for products that help keep the air clean and fresh. According to the research report, "Middle East and Africa Air Freshener Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the market is anticipated to reach USD 1.65 Billion by 2028. Air pollution is a major problem in some parts of the Middle East and Africa. Air fresheners can help purify and refresh indoor air, which is becoming more important to the market as it grows. Furthermore, hospitality is highly valued in many Middle Eastern and African cultures, and having a pleasant-smelling home or business is considered important for welcoming guests. As a result, air fresheners are in high demand in these areas. Moreover, with rising incomes in the region, consumers are becoming more interested in improving their quality of life and creating a comfortable and pleasant living environment, resulting in an increase in demand for air fresheners. In the Middle East and Africa, the market is divided into spray or aerosol air fresheners, gel air fresheners, electric air fresheners, candle air fresheners, and others. Spray and aerosol air fresheners dominate the market with more than 65% market share in 2022, owing to the fact that they are frequently less expensive than other types of air fresheners, making them an appealing option for budget-conscious consumers. Gel Air Freshener has the highest CAGR during the forecasted period due to an increase in the use of this product in automobiles. The demand for gel air fresheners is being driven by the Middle East and Africa. Based on application type, the market is divided into residential, commercial, automotive, and other segments. Residential application of air fresheners has increased in the Middle East and Africa market. As cities in the Middle East and Africa expand, more people are moving into apartments and other high-density housing units. As a result, there is a greater demand for air fresheners in residential settings as people seek to create a more pleasant indoor environment. Automotive application of air fresheners is seeing the highest CAGR in the Middle East and Africa market. Due to rising incomes in the region, consumers are increasingly interested in improving their quality of life, including the environment inside their cars. This has led to an increased demand for automotive air fresheners. Based on distribution channel, the market is divided into supermarkets, hypermarkets, convenience stores, online markets, and others. Supermarket and hypermarket distribution channels are leading in the Middle East and Africa. Supermarkets and hypermarkets are widely available in the region, making them convenient for customers. They provide a wide variety of air freshener products from various brands at various price points, allowing customers to select the product that best meets their needs and budget. The Middle East and Africa have seen a significant increase in internet penetration over the last decade. With more people having access to the internet than ever before, online distribution channels have the highest CAGR in the Middle East and Africa air freshener market. This has resulted in an increase in online purchases of air fresheners and other household products. Furthermore, the Middle East & Africa air freshener market is segmented into various major countries, such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. Due to its high per capita income, Saudi Arabia leads the Middle East and Africa air freshener market, and consumers are willing to spend money on quality air fresheners to improve the indoor air quality of their homes. Saudi Arabia's urbanisation rate is high, and more people are living in smaller living spaces, such as apartments and condos. As a result, there is a higher demand for air fresheners to combat unpleasant odours in these enclosed spaces. The Saudi Arabian Standards, Metrology, and Quality Organization (SASO) has established legal guidelines for the use of air fresheners in the country, including concentration limits for specific compounds. This is in line with the country's goals of promoting consumer safety and environmental protection. It is important to note, however, that the use of certain air fresheners may be restricted or prohibited in Saudi Arabia if they contain harmful chemicals or are not in compliance with local regulations. Furthermore, natural or organic air fresheners, such as essential oils or natural scent diffusers, are preferred by many Saudi consumers because they are perceived to be healthier and safer for their families and the environment.
