The industrial air filtration market is experiencing fast growth. Find out what factors are leading to higher demands for manufacturers.
Growth Factor #1: Increasingly Stringent Regulations
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is dedicated to improving air quality. The Clean Air Act, which regulates air emissions from stationary and mobile sources, helps protect public health and welfare. In 2017, these regulations are set to become even more stringent for cars and trucks especially, in an effort to lower vehicle emissions and sulfur content of gasoline.
As a result, these safety regulations are expected to cause an increase in air filtration demand.
Growth Factor #2: Rising Concerns to Save Energy
Effective industrial air filtration systems help lower energy costs. When air filters get dirty, airflow is restricted. This makes a heating and cooling system ineffective, since it has to work harder to heat or cool a building. This leads to increased energy usage and costs. As concerns to save energy rise, demand for more new air filters does as well.
Growth Factor #3: Need to Improve Efficiencies
Air filters improve manufacturing processes by removing different types of air-borne contaminants from various production stages, keeping workers and products safe and clean. New types of specialized air filters can also remove odor and germs, producing sterile air. This improves a system’s ability to work efficiently and effectively.
New, specialized air filters are expected to continue to grow in popularity in upcoming years.
