In the coming years, the demand of air-filtering bags is expected to increase faster, with the rising awareness about keeping dust and other airborne pollutants away from industrial machinery. Over time, as dust accumulates on machines, it hampers the working of the moving parts, which results in production inefficiency and electricity wastage. Thus, to take care of both these issues, air filters are being integrated with the critical components of the machines. Another reason behind the surging demand for air filter bags is their escalating usage in coal-based power plants.
The power sector accounts for a major chunk of the harmful gases released into the air
The power sector accounts for a major chunk of the harmful gases released into the air. For instance, as per the U.S. Department of Energy, power plants are the biggest source of sulfur dioxide, acidic gas, and mercury emissions in the country, accounting for 64%, 75%, and 50% of the total emissions, respectively. Polyphenylene sulfide is the material of choice for air filter bags used in coal power plants as well as in incinerators, as it can withstand high temperature as well as highly acidic environments.
Mining, chemicals & pharmaceuticals, steel & power, water treatment, brewing, cement, and food & beverage are the primary industries where air and liquid filter bags are used. Among these, the chemicals & pharmaceutical sector is the largest user of these products, as liquid filtration is of prime importance here, especially in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Even the slightest contamination in the drug can kill the user, which is why pharma firms have to deal with extremely stringent regulatory policies.
In the coming years
In the coming years, the demand for these bags would increase the fastest for the primary, secondary, and tertiary stages of the water treatment process. Stringent regulations are imposed on water treatment plants regarding the quality of potable water, which is why filtration is essential here. Other than water treatment, even the cement sector is procuring air and liquid filtration bags in large numbers, due to the growing demand for cement, on account of the expanding infrastructure sector.
Globally, Asia-Pacific (APAC) accounts for the highest usage of these bags, as a result of the strict emission control policies and requirement for clean air in indoor spaces. Additionally, with the expansion of the food and beverages, power, construction, mining, and oil and gas sectors, as the result of the swift urbanization and industrialization, the liquid and air filter bags market is expected to keep growing in APAC. The surging pharmaceutical production is also playing a part, as these bags are extensively used for recovery of the catalyst and active ingredients, purification and removal using activated carbon, and filtration of gelatins.
The implementation of strict government regulations and policies and environmental standards for mitigating water and air pollution is pushing up the demand for liquid and air filter bags across the world. Moreover, the increasing number of industrial activities and the rising concerns being raised in several countries over the surging pollution levels are fueling the adoption of liquid and air filter bags. Many industries are nowadays adopting filters for preventing the settling of dust particles in machines and systems.
The other major factor propelling the sales of liquid and air filter bags is the rising requirement for these materials in the mining and cement manufacturing industries around the world. The surging number of infrastructural development activities are fueling the establishment of several mining and cement manufacturing plants all over the world. Filter bags are used in these industries as mediums for mitigating the generation of dust particles during manufacturing processes.
creating lucrative growth opportunities
This is creating lucrative growth opportunities for the liquid and air filter bag producing companies around the world. Due to these reasons, the global liquid and air filter bags market is recording huge expansion. Between the air and liquid filter bags, the sales of the air filter bags are predicted to rise rapidly across the globe in the coming years. This will be because of the growing requirement for the removal of dust and various unwanted particles from industrial machinery.
Mining, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, water treatment, cement, steel and power, food and beverage, and brewing are the major end use industries of liquid and air filter bags. Amongst them, the usage of these bags will skyrocket in the water treatment industry in the future years. This will be due to the ballooning requirement for air and liquid filter bags in secondary, tertiary, and primary water treatment processes, where they are used for removing fine and medium-sized solid particles from water.
Globally, the liquid and air filter bags market is currently recording the highest growth in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. This is credited to the rising urbanization and industrialization in the regional countries. The major application areas of liquid and air filter bags are pharmaceutical, industrial, mining, and commercial facilities in the region. These bags are extensively used in the pharmaceutical industry for the filtration of gelatins, the active removal and purification of carbon, and recovery of various costly active ingredients.
According to P&S Intelligence
According to P&S Intelligence, a market research company based in India, one of the major trends currently witnessed in the liquid and air filter bags market is the rising usage of these bags in several coal-powered power plants. For instance, these filter bags are used heavily in the Asia-Pacific region for mitigating water and air pollution in coal power plants. Filter bags made from polyphenylene sulfide are widely used in dust chamber filters in incinerators and coal-powered fire stations.
Therefore, it can be said confidently that the demand for liquid and air filter bags will surge all over the world in the forthcoming years, mainly because of their rising usage in various industries for reducing the generation of wastes and controlling the pollution levels.
Hence, with the growth of industries, in an era when air and water pollution are serious issues, the demand for liquid and air filter bags would keep increasing.
