Report Overview

The global sintered metal filters market size was estimated at USD 1.31 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7% from 2022 to 2030. The ability of the filters to separate particles from gas or liquid streams and its properties such as high strength, high-temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance are expected to fuel the growth of the industry. Furthermore, the rising use of sintered metal filters in various applications like chemical, food and beverages, medical, and electronics to comply with environmental regulations is likely to boost the growth. The global sintered metal filter industry faced a number of challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Global industrial operations came to a halt, thus affecting the demand for sintered metal filters across different industries. The global economy is recovering, and the consumption of products and services has increased, resulting in the rising in the demand for sintered metal filters over the forecast period.

U.S. sintered metal filters market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The U.S. sintered metal filters market accounted for revenue of USD 180.1 million in 2021. It is expected to grow due to the increasing demand for sintered metal filters in the automotive industry to control the emissions from vehicles and adhere to the environmental regulations laid down by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

These filters help achieve particulate capture efficiencies of 99.9% and removal efficiency with an accuracy between 0.5um to 300um. It can be operated even at a temperature as high as 10000C concerning the type of metal of the filter. It has high porosity with better permeability and low-pressure drop and can be processed into required shapes and sizes.

The 21st century brings many environmental and economic challenges to various industries due to rapid industrialization. There are environmental protection laws that are being made to reduce the effects of emissions by these industries. These regulations help to emphasize the reduction of non-toxic materials and changing production procedures. Sintered metal filters will help to adhere to government norms and are more economical than other industrial filters.

The market players are trying to adopt environment-friendly solutions with improved efficiency. Companies are working on improving their sales through acquisitions and innovations. To serve the international markets, they are increasing their production capacity and operating through their dedicated distribution channels.

Application Insights

Chemical and petrochemical applications led the market and accounted for 34.3% of the revenue share in 2021. These filters are used in the treatment of radioactive wastes and nuclear plants. These methods are applied to liquid and gas streams that contain a variety of chemical elements ranging from highly corrosive to non-corrosive, as well as a wide range of particulate matter and system temperatures and pressures. Sintered metal filters are used to separate materials and ensure complete particulate removal to secure downstream systems.

The food and beverage application segment accounted for the second largest revenue share and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. The filter helps in the extraction of juices and essential nutrients. Filtration is used to stop these nutrients from being washed away while the food and beverages are being processed and assure the quality of the process. The use of sintered metal filters is growing continuously in the food and beverage industry, which will result in the growth of the segment.

Global sintered metal filters market share, by application, 2021 (%)

The electronics application segment accounted for about USD 145.4 million in 2021. This segment is expected to grow on account of the rising usage of sintered metal filters to pass the clean air to transistors, microprocessors, and sensitive machines. Factors such as urbanization and the increasing use of sintered metal filters in domestic appliances like vacuum cleaners, water purifiers, filtration units, and dampers in blenders are expected to further boost growth. Sintered metal filter helps in increasing the performance of appliances by passing clean and controlled air.

The medical and pharmaceutical application segment held the third-largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. Sintered Metal filter’s primary purpose in this application is to remove bacteria and other unwanted material from the solution and to create a disinfected final product. Earlier the industry was using cyclones and disposable filters, but now it is replaced by sintered metal filters because of their high effectiveness.
