According to Statista, the global industrial air filtration market is projected to reach $7.12 billion by 2022 as megatrends such as increasing environmental awareness and regulations continue to shape its growth. Gain insight into certain filter innovations designed to meet these trends.
Reduce Energy Use
In addition to manufacturing more air filters to meet demand, manufacturers must keep energy use as low as possible in order to aid in environmental sustainability initiatives. To lower a filter’s energy usage, it means lowering its level of pressure drop.
Traditionally, in order for an industrial air filter to function efficiently, it needed a high level of pressure drop. So, to meet energy reduction needs while maintaining desirable filtration, manufacturers innovated to create filtration methods that offered lower intrinsic pressure drops while still filtering finer particles.
Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
To meet increasing governmental regulations for reduced greenhouse gas emissions, carmakers have redesigned many aspects of vehicle exteriors and interiors. In particular, these changes impact powertrain technologies, cooling packages and the car’s overall aerodynamic design. As a result, it has meant less room in the engine compartment for air filters.
So, filter manufacturers have developed new air filter innovations that come in various shapes and sizes, helping further reduce vehicle weight and improve aerodynamics. Additionally, these filters are designed to:
- Improve air filtration capabilities
- Resist clogging
- Aid in engine protection
