Global Statistics Representing Industrial Filtration Market Scenario
Filtration is process of removing suspended solid particles from a liquid or gas. This process is performed with the help of a medium called a filter media. The process is used in chemical and petrochemical, automotive, metals and mining industries. Increasing need to prevent dust and minute airborne particles which are generated within manufacturing plant space from being released into surroundings may raise demand for market in the coming years.
Increasing efforts being undertaken by major manufacturers to bring about innovations such as reduction in greenhouse gases, enhanced performance, and enhanced energy efficiency in filter media is likely to further encourage usage. Increasing population may raise the demand for Purification for drinking water coupled with growing industrialization may create need for purification in products such as foods and beverages, transportation, and infrastructure in the near future.
Growing trend in digitalization in advanced techniques through use of compact electronic circuits and sophisticated software is likely to raise demand for market, especially in technologically advanced regions such as North America and Europe. Furthermore, stringent regulations being laid down by governments of different countries across the world regarding level of emissions from production plants and increasing focus of manufacturers towards adopting cleaner production processes may further promote the use of industrial purification processes.
Global industrial filtration market was valued at USD 25.19 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 42.93 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 6.89 % during the forecast period, 2019–2026.
Global industrial filtration market is segmented by type, filter media, and end-user.
By type, industrial filtration market is segmented into liquid and air. Liquid is sub-segmented by technology into pressure, centrifugal, gravity, vacuum and others, and by products, it is sub-segmented into filter press, bag filter, drum filter, depth filter and others. Air is sub-segmented by technology into mechanical, electronic, and gas phase, and by products, it is sub-segmented into HEPA, ULPA, bag filter, electrostatic precipitator, and others. Air segment is expected to grow at fastest rate due to technological advancements for developing a new filter media to enhance energy efficiency of products. Similarly, governments and key players across the globe are collaborating with several environmental organizations for developing standards to control harmful emissions.
By filter media, industrial filtration market is segmented into metal, activated carbon/ charcoal, fiber glass, filter paper, and nonwoven fabric. Nonwoven fabric filter media is likely to gain a huge demand in market. This is attributed to remarkable properties offered by nonwoven fabric such as high durability, good strength, reusability, good water-resistance, hypoallergenic nature, fire-resistance, and soft, light, and washable nature.
By end-user, industrial filtration market is segmented into manufacturing, power generation, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, metals and mining, and process. Among end-users, pharmaceutical sector is expected to witness remarkable growth due to its increasing usage in plant operation and process. Process is important and widely used as one of the unit operations of pharmaceutical technology. Rapid growth of pharmaceutical sector is likely to raise the demand for bio-filter, which is a combined filter and biological digestion device, which may in turn increase consumption in the years to come.
