Innovations by companies toward increasing the service life of filters along with enhancing their strength and filtering capacity are expected to create new growth opportunities in the market.

Hydraulic & Lube Filters Market Analysis And Forecast

A rise in product demand in various application industries including automotive, power generation, marine, manufacturing, construction, mining, and agriculture is expected to add growth prospects to the market over the forecast period. The performance of every hydraulic filter is measured based on its contamination removal efficiency, thus ensuring reduction or no hydraulic fluid leakage due to clogging in the hydraulic system. The pressure side filters are anticipated to dominate the overall hydraulic & filters market in 2022 followed by the return side filters and the trend is likely to ascend at a positive rate over the forecast period owing to their wide application, especially in the construction application segment.

Hydraulic & Lube Filter Consumption share, by product, 2022

Pressure side filters help remove particles and contaminants from oil used in a hydraulic system. These filters are placed between the pump and actuators and used for medium to high-pressure hydraulic filtration. The high-pressure filter is the most common type of pressure filter used in the hydraulic system. These filters are stocked with a bypass check valve, which is fitted directly in the back of the pump enabling it to become the main filter for the complete flow of oil that helps to protect all hydraulic components against wear and tear.

Process Filters Market Analysis And Forecast

Liquid filtration systems dominated the process filters market in 2022, with a revenue share of 68.2%, and is expected to rise at a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. This is attributed to the widespread usage of liquid filtration systems in several industries including food & beverage, wastewater treatment, power generation, mining, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, for the removal of contaminants from process water, chemicals, and beverages.

Process Filter Consumption share, by application, 2022

Several kinds of process filters such as backflushing filters, bag filters, cartridge filters, and membrane filters are utilized for liquid filtration applications in marine, food & beverages, water & wastewater treatment, power generation, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining, microelectronics, and snowmaking industries. They are used for filtering out oils, process water, wine & other beverage items, and chemicals.
