Tue, 01 October 2019 12:34

The emergence of cement and mining industries coinciding with increasing global concern regarding the safe working environment in industries is anticipated to provide an impetus to the global filter bag market. The decrease in its production cost and the advent of highly efficient products has encouraged the rapid adoption of filter bags in SME & MSE. Increasing demand for filter bags in the biomass waste-to-energy incineration, and in cement industry as clinker cooler, is expected to fuel the market growth.

The pulse jet segment, among other type segments, is projected to witness a cumulative growth during the forecast period, 2019–2026. This is attributed to increasing cement and mining industries which cannot shutdown their production activity as it will negatively impact profitability. However, these industries are highly reliable on pluse jet in order to maintain the various norms of emission. Additionally, the features such as long bag technology which decrease equipment footprint, low maintenance cost fewer ancillary component will boost the demand of filter bag market during the projected period.

The polyester segment, among other material segments, is projected to showcase considerable growth during the forecast period due to its features, such as excellent abrasion-proof, cake release, and water and air permeability.

Schaeffler India, the Indian arm of the German-based automobile and industry component maker, is expected to make an investment of USD 46.66 million in coming years. This showcases that automotive industry will supplement the use of filter bagsin oreder to meet the norms of emission. The flourishing pharmaceutical industries in the region extensively use filter bags for the recovery of expensive active ingredients, filtration of gelatins, catalyst recovery, and active purification.

Transition to Low Carbon Emission Economies Will Boost GDP and Employment Rate in the EU 

Europe is anticipated to witness a remarkable growth, owing to the changing economic and industrial scenario. As per the Paris Agreement, the transition of the European Union to a low carbon emission economy would result in a 1.1% growth in GDP and around 0.5 % increment in employment by 2030.

The Latin America and the Middle East & Africa region is anticipated to witness significant growth due to the increasing oil and gas operations incountries such as Saudi Arabia, Brazil, and the UAE, among others. This has surged the growth of filter bags to control the emissions occurred these operatuions. Additionally, the product is used in coke oven and coal preparation in manufactureing process in steel industry. As steel is utilized for structural component, heat exchangers, and flowlines in oil & gas industry.  Furthermore, growing number of probable gas reserve in the region will fuel the market growth during the forecast period.
