Pulse jet segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The pulse jet segment accounted for the largest market share and will likely retain its position over the projected period. The rapid increase in the demand for improved and enhanced operating efficiencies across various industrial applications, including cement production, electricity generation, municipal garbage, and chemicals, along with the continuously growing financial support from the government bodies for infrastructure construction in the healthcare and educational sectors, are among the key factors influencing the segment market growth.

The reverse air segment is expected to grow considerably during the forecast period, mainly driven by its widespread adoption across several applications worldwide owing to its typically high flow rates and high temperatures. Additionally, reverse air filter bags are gaining significant traction across the globe, as these types of bag filters are compartmentalized, which allows sections to be easily cleaned without any need to shut off the whole system and very gentle clean action, which lengthens the bag life, are further anticipated to boost the segment market over the coming years.

Air filter bags segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The air filter bags segment held a significant market revenue share in 2022 because of continuously increasing awareness regarding the reduction of carbon footprints and several types of incentive schemes or programs granted by the government from many countries to promote green technologies and make the environment healthier.

The liquid segment is projected to expand at a substantial growth rate during the anticipated period, mainly attributed to its ability to work well for various pre-filtration applications and effectively eliminate unwanted solid particles from a liquid. In addition, the growing integration of these filter products in galvanic and chemical industries due to their low-density level, excellent mechanical properties, and low fiber-releasing attribute is also estimated to fuel the demand and growth of the segment.

Power generation segment is expected to grow at a fastest CAGR during forecast period

The power generation segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period. The segment market growth can be mainly attributed to the rising product adoption across the industry. In recent years, several government bodies have introduced stringent robust policies to mitigate environmental pollution; thus, filter bags will gain significant acceptance and demand from the power generation sector to reduce the burden of air-borne disease.

The mining segment is also likely to account for a significant market share over the coming years due to the increasing need and demand for innovative filter bags in the mining industry, as few hazards lead to dust collector emergencies. Moreover, the rising focus on key market players on developing more innovative products for the mining & minerals industry to support the operational activities more efficiently is also likely to contribute positively towards the market growth.

For instance, in September 2021, Clear Edge Filtration introduced its latest filter media, ‘Lotus Range,’ for the mining & minerals industry. These products are mainly designed to change the number of filter cloths being changed and provide longer life with enhanced operational efficiency.

The North America region dominated the global market in 2022

The North American region dominated the global market with a healthy market share and is expected to maintain its dominance over the projected period. The growth of the regional market can be largely attributed to various types of air pollution control regulations imposed by the Environment Protection Agency, such as the Air Interstate Rule, the Clean Air Act, and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, along with the increasing awareness among people towards the greener environment in countries like the US and Canada is primary factors propelling the growth of the market.

The Asia Pacific region is projected to emerge as the fastest-growing region in the global market during the forecast period owing to rapid growth in the power generation, oil & gas, and food & beverages industries, especially among highly populated countries like China and India. Moreover, various APAC countries like South Korea have been emerging as key manufacturing hubs of pharmaceuticals, resulting in higher adoption of filter bags in boilers, dryers, and many other manufacturing machines.
