Laboratory Filtration Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) October 20, 2010
Growth momentum in the laboratory filtration equipment market received a setback during 2008 and 2009 due to the global economic recession. However, with recovery of the global economic situation in 2010, the market is likely to stabilize and register healthy growth in subsequent years. Regulatory initiatives undertaken by several developed and developing countries to protect environment are fueling the filtration equipment market. Further, ongoing technological developments are transforming the industry from conventional methods of filtration to modern, sophisticated methods, which are being readily accepted by the consumers.
Europe represents the largest regional market for laboratory filtration equipment worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Laboratory Filtration Equipment. Microfiltration products dominate the scenario in Europe. The financial crunch weakened the demand for laboratory filtration equipment during the crisis period of 2008 & 2009. However, likely growth in demand for membrane separation systems due to growing number of applications, increasing levels of awareness and general acceptance are expected to improve the European laboratory filtration market in the coming years. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market for laboratory filtration equipment.
Microfiltration Products category constitutes the largest as well as fastest growing segment of laboratory filtration equipment market. Microfilters products are predominantly used in laboratory and analytical sectors and higher demand for these products in end-use sectors is likely to continue in the coming years. Ultrafiltration Products, the other major category, is expected to cross US$413 million by 2012.
Filtration Equipment is a critical component that finds numerous applications in laboratories. For instance, every laboratory needs pure water for which various technologies such as ion exchange, adsorption, distillation, reverse osmosis, ultraviolet oxidation, distillation, deionization, microfiltration, and ultrafiltration are widely used by laboratories. On the other hand, the role of filtration technologies in biopharmaceutical field is increasing by the day. With growing demand for filtration technologies in the biopharmaceutical sector, players are increasingly focusing on bringing forward novel technologies for efficiently eliminating hazardous microorganisms.
