The global air filtration media market attained revenue of USD 4,242.13 Million in 2021 and is estimated to garner USD 6,956.89 Million in 2028 by growing at a CAGR of 7.44% over the forecast period i.e., 2020-2028. The growing industrialization has resulted in increase in urbanization and economic development. This increased industrialization has created a demand for industrial air filters due to the rise in air pollution and decreased air quality across the globe. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that the majority of the world's population is exposed to unsafe air; air pollution kills seven million people in the world every year. Air filtration media is one of the markets with most potential for development since it involves industrial processes and emission control. This focus to curb pollution is expected to increase the demand for air filters, which in turn drives the air filter media market. The increasingly stringent standards and regulations for health and safety drive the demand for air filter products that limit harmful emissions from various end-users such as commercial, industrial and residential. For instance, integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) regulations set the value to limit the emissions. The permit can be issued to companies if specific environmental conditions are met, allowing companies to assume responsibility for avoiding and mitigating pollution that could affect air quality. As a result, companies begin to use particulate air filters to eliminate these issues related to the environment, which further drives the market for air filter media. The Clean Air Act also provides the authority to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce emissions of air pollutants from sources such as chemical plants, utilities, and steel mills. Furthermore, the individual states or tribes may have more strict air pollution laws than EPA.
