Global Filters Market Forecasts

As Quoted In RISI Nonwoven Markets

Vehicle Use, Manufacturing, Regulations, and Consumer Perceptions Drive Filter Requirements

Global demand for filters will be driven by the expansion of the world’s vehicle stock, as well as increases in manufacturing activity. Additional gains will be promoted by ongoing investments in water, wastewater, and power generation infrastructure. Regulatory compliance designed to reduce airborne particulates from manufacturing and energy plants and a rise in consumer concerns over indoor air quality and tap water purity will also increase filter requirements going forward.

Key Findings in the Filters Study:

Internal Combustion Engine and Related Filters will Remain Larger Product Category

Internal combustion engine and related filters accounted for 44% of total global filter sales in 2015, and will continue to remain the larger product category through 2020. Growth in internal combustion engine and related filter sales will be bolstered by a healthy outlook for the global motor vehicle park, particularly in China and India. Increases in motor vehicle production will also contribute to gains in internal combustion engine and related filter sales.

Rapid Growth in Developing World Markets

The world’s emerging markets -- most such as those in the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions -- will continue to post fast gains, driven by developing industrial sectors and an expanding base of filter-containing products (e.g., motor vehicles, motorcycles, and consumer air and water treatment systems). Furthermore, as income levels rise in many of the countries in these regions, residents will be better able to adhere to recommended filter replacement intervals for filter-containing products such as motor vehicles, motorcycles, and consumer air and water treatment systems.

Study Coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the global filters market. The study presents historical demand data (2005, 2015, and 2020) and forecasts (2020 and 2025) on a country-by-country basis. Demand is broken out by product (internal combustion engine and related filters, and air and fluid filters) and by market (motor vehicles, manufacturing, consumer and other). This study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors including CLARCOR, DENSO, Donaldson, MAHLE International, and MANN+HUMMEL.
