Filters

As Quoted In Water Technology Magazine

The filter aftermarket will be aided by the increasing penetration of newer products, particularly motor vehicle cabin air filters, diesel emissions filters, and home air and water filters

.

US demand to rise 3.6% annually through 2018

US demand for filters will advance 3.6 percent annually to $14.8 billion in 2018. Filters are installed in a wide range of equipment and vehicles as original equipment; however, replacement (or aftermarket) demand accounts for the vast majority of filter sales. The filter aftermarket will be aided by the increasing penetration of newer products, particularly motor vehicle cabin air filters, diesel emissions filters, and many varieties of home air and water filters, as well as rising end user awareness of their recommended service lives.

However, consumers continue to replace certain filters less often than recommended, limiting aftermarket sales to an extent. The development of filters featuring technologies that extend their useful life will have a mixed impact on demand, boosting sales since they are priced at a premium, but also restraining demand in volume terms.

Both the original equipment and replacement filter markets will be aided by regulatory changes -- particularly regarding potable water quality, diesel engine emissions, and pollution from electric utilities -- supporting sales of existing filters and the development of new products. The improved outlook for manufacturing and capital investment will also support filter demand in light of greater purchases of equipment that requires filters.

Motor vehicles to remain largest market for filters

The motor vehicle market will continue to account for the largest portion of total demand, with a 27 percent share in 2018, owing to the high volume of filters sold both as original equipment and in the aftermarket. Motor vehicle filter demand will be supported by a rising number of vehicles in use and increasingly strict standards for vehicle emissions. Value growth will also be supported by the introduction and increasing adoption of newer products, such as cabin air filters and other specialty and high value vehicle filters. Demand for filters in the industrial and manufacturing, consumer, and utilities markets will all see above average growth. The industrial and manufacturing market will be driven by the improved outlook for manufacturing as well as continued interest in pollution reduction and sustainability. In addition, a rebound in industrial investment, particularly for pollution control equipment to ensure that facilities meet evolving pollution standards, will support increases. Consumer sales are aided by concerns about the quality of indoor air and home tap water supplies. The utilities market will be driven by evolving regulations regarding potable water quality, wastewater treatment, and air pollution from electric power companies.

Study Coverage

This study analyzes the $12.4 billion US filter industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by filter medium (e.g., paper, fabric), product (e.g., fluid power filters, oil filters, air intake filters, fuel filters, cabin air filters, panel and pocket air filters, fabric air filters, cartridge air filters) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, utilities, consumer, industrial and manufacturing).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players, including Affinia Group, Donaldson and CLARCOR.
