Global Food & Beverage Air Filtration Market, 2014 - 2024 (USD Million)
Rising popularity of organic farming has prompted concerns over safety with an increase in the use of chemical fertilizers and growth promoters. The increasing demand for finer filtration has induced the expenditure and product demand in the industry.
Furthermore, the high initial cost in terms of investments, which include the purchase and operating costs associated with the F&B air filtration systems, may hinder the demand. However, the impact is expected to reduce over the forecast period with the increased installation of air filters.
Dust collectors are estimated to lead the industry. In 2015, the dust collectors are accounted for highest share in F&B air filtration market. One of the important reasons behind this is the growing need for a dust-free environment. Increasing productivity with improved product quality and reduced product contagion caused by contamination during the manufacturing process has influenced the dust collector demand in a positive manner.
HEPA filters are expected to witness an highest growth over the forecast period. The ability to collect dust particles of less than 5 microns, thus reducing the contamination up to 99.97%, is expected to enhance the market growth. HEPA filters are capable of eliminating smoke, dust, bacteria, mold, and pollen in the manufacturing process, improving the indoor air quality as well as the food quality.
The application segment can be categorized into food & ingredients, dairy, and bottled water. This sector is estimated to dominate the industry in 2015. The demand for high quality products, owing to the high living standards of consumers, is expected to force the manufacturers to upgrade the technology.
The imposition of strict government laws for the enhancement of product quality has led to the installation of filters in the food & ingredients segment. The growing demand for products that deliver improved efficiency and strong performance as well optimize their energy intake is also expected to favorably influence the processing segment.
The North American F&B air filtration market is expected to remain the key revenue generating region, accounting for highest share by 2024. The increased awareness among consumers has led to the improved sales performance of the small and large food manufacturers. Private label foods in the market are expected to drive sales among the small producers; whereas, the locally grown or produced foods are expected to impact the large producers in positive manner.
According to the United Nation Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the global population is anticipated to be 9.7 billion by 2050 and with the increased population, the F&B air filtration industry is expected to further improve sustainability and food standards.
The Asia Pacific market is anticipated to grow at a higher attributable pace from 2016 to 2024. The regional growth can be attributed to the rapid industrialization along with the economic growth in the region over the forecast period. The regional growth can be attributed to the increasing consumer markets in countries such as India and China. The growing urbanization and increasing concerns for food safety are estimated to be the major reasons for the region’s growth.
