Air Filtration Media Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Industrialization and Urbanization across the World with Increasing Economic Standards

Industries such as wood, plastic, and metal manufacturing units generate huge amounts of particles that are not visible to the naked eye but when inhaled leads to many complications. In developed countries rising occupational respiratory tract illnesses in the mining sector around the world are also expected to boost market expansion over the forecast period.

As per the predictions made in 2020, more than 60% of people across the world are estimated to live in developed countries by the end of 2050.

  • Stringent Regulation Regarding Emissions to Reduce Environmental Pollution around the Globe – The United States Environmental Protection Agency declared new standards in 2023 for passenger cars and light trucks on greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Rising Health Issues of the Respiratory Tract with Inhalation of Pollutant Air – As of Pan American Health Organization in 2019, more than 534,000 people died of chronic respiratory diseases in the U.S.

  • Increasing Air Pollution with the Use of Automobiles across the World – As of 2021, the pollution released in the atmosphere of the United States was estimated to be more than 65 million tons.

  • Escalating Mining Works and Extraction of Minerals and Metals from Ores – The global value of mining works in 2020 was estimated to be more than USD 1640 billion and reached USD 1840 billion by the end of 2021.

Challenges

  • High Ozone Emissions via Air Filters –

The air filters work by consuming ionizers and electrostatic precipitators or any other devices which are estimated to release ozone. This is estimated to be harmful as it is absorbed physically and inhaled as gases in the human body.

  • High Cost Associated with Air Filters

Lack of Awareness of Risks Caused by Dust particulates

Air Filtration Media Market Segmentation

Filter Type (Activated Carbon, Non-Woven Fabrics, Electrostatic Filter, Fiberglass)

The global air filtration media market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by filter type into activated carbon, non-woven fabrics, electrostatic filter, fiberglass, and others. Under filter type, the activated carbon segment accounted for the highest share of the market during the forecast period. Activated carbon filters are widely used to separate components of gas through pressure using adsorption phenomena. The value of activated carbon filters in the year 2020 was estimated to be over 260 million across the world. Additionally, it has unique properties that allow it to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and other gaseous pollutants from the air. Such factors are boosting the demand for activated carbon filters in the market. The increasing use of carbon filters in all types of air filters owing to their highly absorbing nature is estimated to hike the market segment growth.

End-user (Commercial, Industrial, Residential) 

The global air filtration media market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into commercial, industrial, and residential. Amongst these three segments, the commercial segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~46% in the year 2035. The commercial segment is estimated to garner the highest market revenue by the end of 2028 owing to the surge in demand for air filtration from public venues, restaurants, and workplaces that are investing to improve the air quality of their occupants. The increasing use of air filters and purifiers in end-user sectors such as HVAC, air pollution control, industrial manufacturing, and others is also anticipated to hike the market growth.
