Industrial Filtration Market
Industrial Filtration Market

Increasing industrialization owing to growing demand from end user is one of the biggest factor for the CO2 emission. In addition, growing power demand increased the coal consumption resulted in the emission of large amount of CO2. Globally, China by far the largest CO2 emitter owing to its large manufacturing sector and less stringent environment regulations relative to western economies. CO2 released causes air pollution resulting in air bone diseases. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, 99% of the world population was living in places where the WHO air quality guidelines levels were not met. Further, to create a healthy living environment air purifiers are needed to purify the polluted air. However, high installation cost can hamper the demand of air purifiers. Moreover, governments are heavily investing in air purifiers to improve the air quality index and reduce respiratory diseases caused by air pollution.

Industrial filters are used for cleaning and treating industrial oils, lubricants, gases, and water. These filters are employed in a wide range of fields, such as power plants, paper industry, and automotive manufacturing. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing requirement of a safe working environment in industrial facilities. Furthermore, rapid industrialization and urbanization along with the implementation of stringent regulations pertaining to emission and treatment of industrial waste is further supporting market growth.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, Liquid filtration segment holds the major share”

Based on type, the Industrial Filtration market is segmented air and liquid filtration. Among these, liquid filtration type category to account for majority share in 2020 owing to the strict regulations governing the treatment of industrial and municipal wastes, globally. Moreover, the growing industrialization and urbanization in various parts of the world is also driving the market. Furthermore, liquid filtration is further categorized into different technology which includes  Mechanical, Electronic, and Gas-phase.

In addition, major players in the market are continuously working towards introducing new filters offering advance filtration capabilities mainly to competitive advantage over their rivals.
