Report Overview

The global industrial air filtration market size was estimated at USD 7.0 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% from 2023 to 2030. The rising need to control industrial air quality across various industries, including cement, food & beverage, metal, and power along with industrial air quality regulations, which is expected to augment market growth over the forecast period.

U.S. Industrial Air Filtration Market Size, by Product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on several end-use sectors such as manufacturing, food & beverage, and cement, due to disruptions in the raw material supply chain and the temporary shutdown of production facilities across the globe. Following the pandemic, it is expected that supply chain normalization, the relaxation of strict measures, an increase in retail consumption, and stabilization of manufacturing activities will improve economic activity and thus increase demand for industrial air filtration.

Favorable government emission norms, combined with the enforcement of workforce safety and health regulations in several regions, are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The Clean Air Act, for instance, is a federal law in the U.S. that is intended to control air pollution on a national scale. The expansion of industrial and manufacturing units resulted in the implementation of several industrial air filtration regulations.

Modern industrial air filtration products enable filtration system plant managers and designers to reduce operating costs and realize energy cost savings while meeting required quality standards. Various technologies are being developed to improve the performance and quality of industrial air filtration systems. The growing need to reduce energy consumption in a variety of industrial applications may increase the demand for an efficient industrial air filtration system.

Technological advancements in the industrial air filtration system are expected to provide opportunities for market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising concerns over environmental health and reducing raw material resources are primarily expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.

The industrial air filtration system is used across several industries including power, food & beverage, cement, metals, and pharmaceuticals. However, high capital and operating costs associated with industrial air filtration systems are expected to hinder market growth. Purifying contaminated air requires advanced filtration equipment, resulting in increased capital investment. As a result, the overall system is costly to operate in terms of maintenance and energy consumption.

Product Insights

HEPA filters dominated the market and accounted for 29.5% of the global revenue share in 2022, owing to the presence of air filters with advanced efficiency that removes microscopic organisms that may cause serious harm and inorganic dust suspended in the air such as bacteria, mold spores, airborne viruses, dust mites, and pollen.

HEPA utilizes thick and pleated media instead of the flat fiberglass media used in standard types of filters. This is to considerably expand the surface area for filtration as well as the service life of the filters. HEPA filters are the standard filtration system in medical settings, such as clinics and hospitals.

The dust collectors product segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period. Dust collectors provide several advantages, including increased productivity, pollution protection, compliance with health and air emission regulations, and environmental protection from manufacturing pollutants, among others.

Baghouse filters remove and can withstand acid gases, abrasive particles, mists, filter explosive dust, fumes, and fine powders, depending on the fabric filter and design. They are capable of collecting difficult-to-capture air pollutants as well as toxic airborne materials found in dust, welding fumes, and particulate residue.

End-Use Insights

The food & beverage segment dominated the market and accounted for 21.4% of global revenue in 2022 owing to the legislations pertaining to food safety coupled with retailer manufacturing standards and codes of practice for high-risk food manufacturing that provides opportunities for industrial air filtration market growth.

The pharmaceutical end-segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period. Pharmaceuticals contain numerous chemical components that can be toxic depending on how they are inhaled. Furthermore, the manufacturing processes for products such as medical pills or medical equipment can generate byproducts that are medically dangerous or flammable. A proper air filtration system can help reduce risks while improving overall employee health, resulting in less downtime, increased profit, and ensuring the quality of your products.

Global Industrial Air Filtration Market Share, By End-Use, 2022 (%)

Metal industries are distinguished by high operating temperatures, as well as a high concentration of smaller dust particles. These conditions necessitate maximum airflow, maximum dust filtration efficiency, and maximum dust loading capacity. For worker safety, health, and productivity, industrial air filtration systems remove dust and other contaminants from the facility.

Workers in chemical and petrochemical plants are exposed to toxic and combustible gases such as sulphur dioxide, and hydrogen sulphide, on a daily basis, where industrial air filtration equipment is used on a larger scale as it meticulously monitors and controls the air quality, which is critical for safety and efficiency.

Regional Insights

North America region dominated the market and accounted for over 40.0% share in 2022. Industrial users in this region strive to minimize health hazards with adoption of air filtration equipment that exhibit high performance capabilities such as effective removal of sub-micron particulates. In addition, manufacturers focus on minimizing the pressure drop in air filters that offers significant energy savings to the end-user and subsequently lower the total cost of ownership.

Industrial Air Filtration Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and increasing per capita income are expected to drive the market. China is expected to emerge as a worldwide hub for industrial air filtration equipment manufacturing owing to its low labor and infrastructure costs. Moreover, the region is presumed to witness the entry of several pharmaceutical companies to meet domestic export and import demands, thereby aiding regional growth.

The food industry in Europe is highly diversified and is characterized by the presence of several small-scale businesses. Food processing involves moving a variety of products; depending on the suitability of the application, there may be concerns with sanitary regulations, cross-contamination, and food handling regulations, which are expected to favorably impact market growth over the forecast period.

The growth of industrial air filtration in Central & South America is attributed to the growing metal industry. The rising emphasis on augmenting the indoor air quality in industrial establishments for worker safety and decreased health risks is expected to upsurge the demand for high efficiency filters. Dust collectors are widely used in metal processing industries as they remove industrial pollutants, thereby reducing operational costs.
