Filters in China

As Quoted In RISI Nonwovens

Filter demand in China will rise at double digit rates due to water treatment plans necessitating better utility filters and a growing motor vehicle park that will lead to a sizable aftermarket.

Demand to rise 14% yearly to 90 billion yuan in 2017

Demand for filters in China is projected to grow 14 percent per year to 90.2 billion yuan in 2017. Sales gains will be fueled by growth in the production of motor vehicles and other transportation equipment and rapid growth in the motor vehicle park. Growth in manufacturing output, building construction spending, and other industrial activities will also drive filter sales. The market for consumer filters will be expanded greatly by urbanization. As personal income levels rise, Chinese resi-dents will spend more on their personal health, leading to more home water and air purification equipment purchases. The aftermarket for filters will also benefit from more widespread knowledge about health and the need to replace filters more often.

Motor vehicles to remain largest filter market

Motor vehicles will continue to represent the largest filter market through 2017. Demand will be supported by a growing motor vehicle park, leading to a rapidly developing aftermarket. The manufacturing sector will remain the second largest filter market through 2017, benefiting from increases in manufacturing activity.

Filter shipments are expected to register double-digit gains through 2017. Besides the impact of expanding demand, the con-tinued entry of foreign suppliers into the Chinese market, continued investments by domestic makers, and higher filter prices will fuel growth of filter shipments. Imports will continue to account for a sizable share of demand for higher-end filters, though the growth rate is forecast to decelerate.

ICE engine/related filters to remain largest segment

Internal combustion engine (ICE) and re-lated filters represented the largest product category of filters in China in 2012 and demand for them will rise over 15 percent annually through 2017. Although growth of motor vehicle and gas motorcycle production will be slow (compared to historical rates), production gains will still support substantial filter consumption. Filter sales will also be stimulated by robust growth in the stock of motor vehicles and other transportation equipment.

Fluid filtration product sales will be driven by rapid industry development. Fluid power filters are indispensable in producing such products as cement and chemicals. Demand for fluid filters will be also fueled by growth in both water and wastewater treatment.

Demand for air filters is expected to grow due to sales gains being fueled by rising output of products equipped with air filters, such as HVAC equipment. Rapid development of industries with air purification requirements will also spur the expansion of the air filter market. Influenced by severe air pollution in China, health concerns will drive consumers to purchase air filtration products.

Study coverage

Filters in China, Freedonia industry study, presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by filter media (e.g., paper, fabric, activated carbon), product (e.g., internal combustion engine and related filters, fluid filters, air filters) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, other transportation equipment, manufacturing, utilities, consumer).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including Donaldson, UFI Filters, and Pall.
