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)

   World Region      2015  
 Total  7,158
 Africa  183
 CIS  278
 East   Asia  2,115
 Eastern   Europe  130
 Middle   East  264
 NAFTA  2,283
 South   & Central America  277
 West   Asia  279
 Western   Europe  1,349

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/
