In India, the drinking water scenario is very intense with growing concern of water contamination. Understanding this need of the hour, Panasonic has introduced its range of water purifiers- ‘BLUE': a name that embodies pure water. Also Air- the most important element of life, which is unconsciously and continuously ingested, is affected with the soaring problem of pollution across the country. The polluted air thus becomes a cause for various problems like asthma, influenza virus, viral growth, sore throat and house dust. Panasonic air purifiers launched today, have a very unique nanoe function that can make safety, clean, and healthy air. As the demand for air purifiers in India is getting bigger, Panasonic's target is to promote the importance of Indoor Air Quality by NanoeTM technology more. This product line is more than just for air purification as it can even penetrate into fabrics and deodorize unpleasing smell embedded in clothes like tobacco odor etc. Being water in
nature, NanoeTM also hydrates skin to prevent dryness.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Daizo Ito, President, Panasonic India said, "With this launch we are entering the water as well air purifier industry in India which is growing at a much faster rate, offering potential business growth opportunity for Panasonic in the Indian market.
