NEWS RELEASE APRIL 2015
Air Filtration Market Will Exceed $7 Billion This Year
The market for filters for indoor air and gas turbine air inlets will exceed $7 billion in 2015. The biggest driver in Asia is the increased use in residences and commercial buildings to prevent pollutants in the ambient outdoor air from entering the internal environment. This is one of the conclusions reached in the latest McIlvaine forecasts in N022 Air Filtration and Purification World Market.
Air Filter Revenues ($ Millions)
|South & Central America||277|
The big driver in the U.S. is the expansion of the gas turbine market. Most of the additional U.S. power generation capacity will come from gas turbine plants as identified in: 59EI Gas Turbine and Combined Cycle Supplier Program.
The market is expanding substantially due to product upgrades and price per unit increases. It has been learned that gas turbine maintenance and downtime can be reduced with the use of high efficiency (HEPA) filters as opposed to medium efficiency filters. These filters cost several times more, but are justified on a life cycle basis.
A unique new guide to these selections has been created in Gas Turbine Air Treatment Global Decisions Positioning System™ (GdPS).
An American Filtration Society conference on April 28th will include a session conducted by McIlvaine on the filter options http://spring.afssociety.org/
