Food and Beverage Air Filtration Market and its Adhesives

According to Grand View Research, the global food and beverage air filtration market was valued at $838.1 million in 2015 and has been continually growing. Let’s take a look at this market’s dynamics and the role adhesives play within it.

Demand for Improved Food and Beverage Quality

As government regulations and consumer health concerns rise, manufacturers have had to improve the technology used during the food and beverage production process. In particular, this has meant increased installation of air filters in the manufacturing plants.

Filters help remove germs and viruses. For example, specialized filters are able to produce sterile air. By installing these new filters, air quality is improved and decreased levels of microorganisms are present during food and beverage production.

Need to Reduce Energy Consumption

Replacing air filters on a consistent basis helps keep energy costs low and systems running effectively. Doing so also lowers the risk of system failure, allowing for better heat dissipation and cooler equipment levels. Additionally, they help remove moisture and improve production processes across various applications.
