Growing industrialization has led to the increase in urbanization along with economic growth, globally. This increase in industrialization has created a demand for industrial filters as there is an increase in air, liquid, and soil pollution. Air filter media is one of the markets with the most growth potential as it involves industrial process and emission controlDeveloping and developed countries, both, are major business hubs for the air filter media market. For example, manufacturing is one of the rapidly growing sectors for several developed and developing countries including China, India, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, US, Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, and Italy. The manufacturing sector is a major contributor to the GDP of these countries. The increase in manufacturing establishments are expected to drive the industrial air purification and emission control market as there are stringent regulations such as Clean Air Act, Air Quality Directive, and others regarding release of harmful air pollutants to the environment.
The Southeast Asian economy has witnessed tremendous growth for the past five years. The GDP growth of the region is expected to be around 4.9% from 2020 to 2024, as per Medium Term Projection Framework 2020 (OECD). The GDP growth in the Philippines and Vietnam is projected to be around 6.2% and 6.5%, respectively, for 2020 – 2024, mainly due to the increased private participation, trade agreements, and strong foreign direct investments. In the near future, Southeast Asian economies are expected to outperform more developed APAC economies, such as South Korea, Australia, and Japan. All this industrial development is expected to boost requirement for air purification and emission control thus providing opportunity for the growth of air filter media market.
Covid-19 has impacted industries in as severe manner. Food & beverage industry experienced decline in restaurant sales. Lapse in tourism, cancellation of major sporting events, have also effected consumption of processed foods and beverages, globally. Chemical industry was impacted by supply chain disruptions, demand fall, workforce unavailability, and so on. Similarly, O&G, textile, Pulp &Paper industries have also been effected due to this pandemic. Pulp & Paper and textile industry are affected by the slowdown in fast moving consumer goods. In the next few years, normalization of supply chains, reduction in stringent measures, increase in retail consumption, growth in construction activities, stabilization of manufacturing activities, and others are expected to boost economic activities and thereby increase demand for air filter media.
Based on type, the nonwoven fabrics are expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period. Nonwoven fabrics are made of long fibers that are bonded together through the application of heat, solvent, chemicals, or mechanical treatment. These are generally made out of polymers. Polymers or plastics have experienced fluctuations in demand due to this pandemic. Industries such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, chemicals, and other essential sectors experienced a growth in demand for polymers. Increase in demand for respiratory devices such as ventilators is also propelling consumption of air filter media in healthcare sector.
Based on end-use industry, the food & beverage segment is expected to register the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2021. For better product quality, to control odors & humidity, and to minimize air-borne contamination of food, air filtration is used in the food & beverage industry. The food & beverage industry witnessed both growth and decline scenarios. Consumption of groceries, fresh food products, and frozen foods increased due to panic buying and stockpiling effect in the pandemic period, while demand from restaurants, cafes and other food-service outlets decreased due to temporary closures amidst lockdowns and social distancing measures.
