Follow us on LinkedIn – With applications in consumer, industrial, manufacturing, commercial and automotive sectors, air filters and filtration equipment market is influenced by changes in government regulations and environmental policies. Growth in the market has long benefited from the ever-rising concerns over indoor air quality and increasing incidence of allergic respiratory disorders. Another key factor driving growth in the market is the frequent outbreak of epidemics, especially in developing countries, which play instrumental roles in raising consumer awareness.
Automotive air filters represents the largest product market with growth led by stringent emission norms and recovery in global automotive production. Demand for increased cabin comfort is helping drive growth of cabin air filters. A key factor restraining growth in the market is the longer than average replacement cycle largely as a result of longer durability of filtration media and reluctance on the part of consumers to change air filters in their vehicles in time.
The market is also poised to benefit from innovative technology advancements targeted at design and performance improvements, such as, high dust holding capacity, compact/flexible form factors, durability, and optimum functioning at comparatively lower delta pressure, among others. Nanotechnology represents another potential growth driver, wherein nanofiber technology enable development of smaller, compact and longer-lasting filters and components.
Demand for high-efficiency particulate absorption (HEPA) air filters is expected to witness steady growth in the coming years. Advanced versions of HEPA filters such as Scanned HEPA filters, SULPA filters, among others, are known to eliminate over 99.99% of airborne indoor particles. Demand for air filters and filtration equipment fluctuates in close correlation to the construction industry, steel and cement production, and gas turbine power plants, among others. The market as a result is expected to benefit from favorable trends in these end-use sectors. The rise in the number of gas turbine power plants as a result of the declining natural gas prices is expected to boost opportunities for gas turbine inlet filters worldwide.
As stated by the new market research report on Air Filters and Filtration Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.0% over the analysis period. Higher infrastructure investment, growing GDP, rapid urbanization, robust pace of industrialization and heightened concerns with regard to health represent key growth drivers in the region. Furthermore, several air filter manufacturers from the developed countries are moving production to China, India, and Malaysia, to leverage the advantage of cheap manpower, and abundant supply of raw materials.
