World Filters Market Research Report

Global demand to grow over 5% annually through 2011

World filter demand is projected to climb over 5 percent annually through 2011 to $49 billion. Market gains in developing parts of Asia/Pacific, Eastern Europe, Africa/Mideast and Latin America will outpace demand in the US, Western Europe and Japan, fueled by healthy economic growth, ongoing industrialization efforts and rising personal income levels, resulting in higher manufacturing output, building construction expenditures and motor vehicle ownership levels. In addition, environmental and other relevant laws and regulations are expected to become stricter and better enforced in a number of developing countries, bolstering associated filter demand. China, India and Russia will post some of the strongest sales increases. China alone will account for more than one-quarter of all additional filtration product demand through 2011 and surpass Japan to become the second largest market in the world behind the US. Growth is also expected to be healthy in lower-volume markets such as Indonesia, Iran, Turkey, Thailand and South Africa. Filter demand in developed parts of the world will expand as well. Product sales will be stimulated by largely favorable economic climates and higher per capita income, resulting in increased manufacturing output and consumer spending, which will boost related filter demand. The implementation of stricter environmental standards (like those for diesel engine particulate emissions) will also contribute to market gains in these areas.

Air purification filters to post most rapid increases

Air purification filters will record the strongest sales advances through 2011, spurred by higher manufacturing and mining output, rising urban population levels, and the construction of numerous new power plants and waste incinerators, leading to a deterioration in average air quality and the enactment of tougher air pollution control laws and regulations. Growing concerns about indoor air quality will also drive demand for home air filtration products. Fluid filters will register the next strongest gains, stimulated by increases in nonagricultural water withdrawals; an ongoing trend toward urbanization, resulting in greater spending for water and wastewater treatment; and the implementation of more stringent water pollution control standards. Nevertheless, internal combustion engines and related filters will remain the largest product segment in value terms. Demand for these items will be fueled by growth in the number of motor vehicles and other equipment powered by internal combustion engines, increases in global motor vehicle output, and rising demand for products such as cabin air and diesel particulate filters.

Manufacturing, utility markets to be fastest growing

Transportation equipment is by far the largest market for filtration products but is also the slowest growing. Manufacturing- and utility-related filter demand will expand at a faster rate through 2011, benefitting from healthy increases in manufacturing output and the construction of numerous electric and water utility facilities around the world. Demand for filters used in other miscellaneous applications (e.g., off-road machinery, health care, military/safety force equipment) will climb at an above-average pace as well, spurred by rises in construction, farming and mining activity, and medical spending as economic growth continues and global population increases.

Study coverage

It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product, market, world region and for 26 countries. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share data and profiles 38 filter industry competitors worldwide.
