Growing demand for filter press and bag filter solutions as liquid centrifugal filtration systems for zero emission and zero discharge from manufacturing and other industries. Additionally, the adoption of advanced equipment in water and waste water treatment industry is likely to push the liquid filtrations systems thereby driving the market.
Industrial Filtration Market Segment Analysis – By End User
Oil & Gas is the key end user in Industrial Filtration market and estimated to grow at a CAGR of 1.0%. Adoption of filtration systems in oil and gas industry for upstream, middle stream, and downstream applications is poised to drive the market as it assists in reducing operating costs and improving process efficiency. As separation of oil, gas, water and the removal of solids contaminants is essential, there is high requirement of actiivated carbon based centrifugal filtration systems. Development of advanced equipment and replacement with new equipment set to create opportunities for the industrial filtration industry.
Industrial Filtration Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
APAC dominated the Industrial Filtration market in 2020 with a market share of 35.3%, followed by North America and Europe. High adoption of industrial filters in APAC countries such as China, Japan, India and others countries is set to drive the industrial filtration industry as they have more number of industries, especially in China as it is the manufacturing hub for various industries. Additionally various government initiatives have been pushing the industrial centrifugal filtration systems industry. For instance, in Indian Government has taken some initiatives such as green skill development program to curb the pollution from industries which set to drive the industrial filtration systems.
Industrial Filtration Market Drivers
Enforcement of strict regulations
Implementation of strict regulations due to rising environmental concerns compel industries to install air and liquid filtration equipment. Stringent government regulations regarding limitation of the emissions levels that are supporting the use of industrial filtration systems have been driving the market across global level. For instance, in April 2018, Canada had introduced regulations for cutting of the methane emissions up to 40-45% by 2025 from the 2012 baseline. In addition, the measures by various countries governments for addressing venting and flaring that comes from the upstream oil and gas operations which further drives the air filtration market growth, especially activated carbon based filters.
Rapid Industrialization and Increasing funding activities
Increasing industrialization activities and increasing funding for industrial filtration startups and development of new products with advanced technologies. For instance, in 2019, Nanoclean Global Pvt Ltd, a nanotechnology startup which develops industrial filtration devices, had raised $600,000 funding. During the same year, Volz Filters, the U.K. manufacturers of industrial filters had secured a funding of $650k for development of new products and strengthen its business. In addition to these, many research and development activities are going on development of industrial filters with advanced features.
Industrial Filtration Market Challenges
Heavy equipment and high costs
One of the major challenge in heavy size and its high cost. In addition to this, the maintenance of industrial filtration systems is difficult as they can’t handle continuous work when the system is not self-cleaned and blocked by waste particles. High capital and maintenance cost hampers the growth of the industrial filtration market. However replacement of traditional filters with advanced featured filters set to provide opportunities for industrial filtration market during forecast period.
Industrial Filtration Market Landscape
Product Launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Industrial Filtration market.
