US filters demand will grow 4.2 percent annually through 2011. Gains will be driven by ongoing sales in the dominant aftermarket, pending laws for cleaner air and reduced emissions, as well as by increasing penetration of motor vehicle cabin air filters and home air and water filters. Fluid filters will remain the largest segment while air filters will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $9.8 billion US filter industry. It presents historical demand data for 1996, 2001 and 2006, with forecasts to 2011 and 2016 by filter product (e.g., fluid power, oil, air intake, fuel, cabin air, emissions, panel and pocket air, fabric air pollution), and market (e.g., motor vehicles, utilities, consumer).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 37 leading competitors including Donaldson, CLARCOR, Afinia Group, Parker-Hannifin, Cummins, General Motors, 3M, Honeywell, Pentair and Purolater Filters.
