Filtration & Separation Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption, Revenue and Forecast 2021 to 2027

The global filtration & separation market was valued at $91 billion in 2020 and is expected to be worth around USD 116.15 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2021 to 2027.

The filtration & separation refers to the removal and elevation of airborne and waterborne pollutant and particles. The constant operation in the industrial sector produces minute particles, chemicals, dust, and other allergens, which pollute air and water. Thus, there is a need of efficient filtration & separation for filtering out the unnecessary effluents with the help of filter media. Industrial gases are also needed to be filtered from impurities to improve the quality of the manufactured commodities.

In addition, air filters are also used across pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing. Therefore, the higher importance of air filters in hospitals and pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing increases the need for air filters. Moreover, the growth in overall healthcare spending also results in higher demand for air filters, which in turn drives the growth for filtration & separation market. 

The quality of air and water across the globe is decreasing due to factors such as industrialization and urbanization. Therefore, air and water pollution has become a health problem globally. Thus, the high focus to curb air and water pollution is expected to increase the demand for filters, which in turn drives the demand for the filtration & separation market. In addition, the stringent government regulations for clean water in developed countries fuels the growth of the filtration & separation market. However, the high capital and operating cost, and decline in number of new coal power plants hamper the filtration & separation market growth. Furthermore, high focus on nanotechnology for air filtration is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market players during the forecast period.

The filtration & separation market has witnessed significant growth over the past decade, owing to the rise in investment in HVAC industry especially in the North America, and Asia-Pacific region. A number of players are expanding their business around the globe, owing to increased customer base, enhanced effective operations, developed product portfolios, and expanded geographical reach. This is anticipated to fuel the demand for the wellhead equipment. Furthermore, by end-user, the life sciences segment is expected to grow in the near future due to growing pharmaceutical industry around the globe.

Drivers, restraints, and opportunities

Degradation of air quality, focus on reducing air pollution, and strict government regulations for clean water in developed nations drive the growth of the global filtration & separation market. However, high capital and operating cost along with decrease in number of new coal power plants hinder the market growth. On the other hand, R&D activities related to applications of nanotechnology for air filtration present new opportunities in the coming years.

Covid-19 Scenario:

Due to lockdown imposed by governments, many filtration and separation plants for HVAC, water and wastewater, and industrial processes have been shut down. They have been started partly as restrictions have been lifted off by governments.

Many plant owners have allocated part of their facilities for the manufacturing of face masks and sanitizers to meet the ever-increasing demand during the pandemic.

The pandemic raised the challenge for the filtration industry regarding the development of innovative filter materials to inactivate the virus and reuse filters for further operations.

The gas and liquid segment to continue its highest contribution by 2027

Based on type, the gas and liquid segment contributed to the largest market share in 2020, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the global filtration & separation market, and is expected to continue its highest contribution in terms of revenue during the forecast period. This is attributed to demand for superior filtration solutions from the natural gas industries for gathering dust and other particles to protect equipment, machines, and engines along with expansion of natural gas power plants. However, the air segment is expected to portray the largest CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2027, owing to stringent emission regulations imposed by governments in developed countries, rise in industrialization, and steps taken to roll down emissions in industries by the governments.

The water and wastewater segment to maintain its dominant share during the forecast period

Based on end-user, the water and wastewater segment held more than two-fifths of the global filtration & separation market in 2018, and is estimated to maintain its dominant share during the forecast period. This is attributed to rise in demand for water filtration for treating untreated water and sewage released by residential and non-residential sectors in nearby water bodies. However, the life sciences segment would witness the highest CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. This is due to increase in usage of biologics, expansion of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, and innovative marketing strategies.

North America to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period

Based on region, North America accounted for more than two-fifths of the total market share of the global filtration & separation market in 2020, and is estimated to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period. This is attributed to rise in demand for air and water filters from the industrial and commercial sectors with rapid urbanization and industrialization. However, Asia-Pacific would register the highest CAGR of 5.3% from 2021 to 2027, owing to stringent government regulations regarding air and water quality index, surge in consumer awareness regarding air filters, and increase in health & environment concerns.
