Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Airthings with the 2020 Global Product Leadership Award

High-quality, innovative solutions; industry expertise; and customer-centricity are among the key differentiators that Frost & Sullivan identifies in its Best Practices Award report

Airthings, a global leader in indoor air quality solutions and energy-saving technology, announced that it has received Frost & Sullivan's 2020 Global Product Leadership Award in the indoor air quality monitoring industry. The award recognizes companies that offer a product or solution with attributes that deliver the best quality, reliability, and performance in the industry. Airthings was founded in 2008 by three scientists from CERN to make radon testing more efficient and simple. Since then, Airthings has introduced a steady stream of innovative solutions for consumers, businesses, and professionals, earning the company a reputation of true leadership in the industry.

“The demand for air quality products is increasing in society,” said Dennis Marcell Victor, Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “As a thought leader and established market participant, Airthings is in a prime position to benefit from these trends while fulfilling its mission of allowing people to breathe better.”

Frost & Sullivan applies a rigorous analytical process to evaluate multiple nominees for each award category before determining the final award recipient. The process involves a detailed evaluation of best practices criteria across two dimensions for each nominated company, including Business Impact and Product Portfolio Attributes. Airthings excels in many of the criteria in the indoor air quality monitoring space.

“It is such an honor to receive an accolade from a global prestigious analyst firm like Frost & Sullivan,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “The award reinforces our position as the leader in the market and will boost our continued efforts to empower the world to breathe better through simple, innovative solutions.”

Leveraging Industry Expertise

Airthings has been in the indoor air quality space for more than 12 years. After introducing the first digital radon detector for the masses, the company has expanded its portfolio with smart indoor air quality monitors and tailored solutions for schools, offices, and public buildings with the same user-friendly approach as its consumer-facing product line. 

In 2020, Airthings acquired Airtight, a Norwegian proptech company that develops smart sensor technology to reduce energy waste from buildings. By combining the two technologies Airthings offers an all-in-one solution to improve energy efficiency while ensuring a safe and productive indoor environment. In this context, Frost & Sullivan indicates that competitors in the market would find it extremely difficult to match Airthings’ products in design, user-friendliness, reliability, and quality.
