Air filtration media is a filters material that extracts dust particles, pollutants, and other particulate matter and eliminates them. Various materials, such as non-woven polyester, glass fibre, activated carbon, and other materials are made up of these air filter media. Fiberglass filters, polyester filters, pleated filters, washable filters, and disposable filters are used in different forms of air filter media. For applications such as HVAC, face masks, air pollution control, industrial processing, transportation, and others, these air filter media are used in air filters and purifiers.
Air Filter Media Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 3.7% in 2030.
Air Filter Media Market to surpass USD 780 Million by 2030 from USD 710 Million in terms of value growing at a CAGR of 3.7% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30. Air filters are of great importance to the healthcare industry, wherein they are used across hospitals and pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing. In hospitals, air which contains particulates can be harmful to patients, which can further deteriorate the patient health. Besides, unfiltered indoor air can transmit bacteria, infections, germs, and viruses, to patients which can be life-threatening. Moreover, there is a rise in awareness and sensitivity toward air pollution among the public. The increase in the number of programs and campaigns by various institutions such as Client Earth leads to an increase in awareness. Such awareness programs increase the level of knowledge among citizens, which promotes them to buy air filters. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the air filtration media market in the coming years.

Growing demand for these materials is also driving the demand for air filters media in the industry in this current situation to safeguard food and beverage products.
Air Filter Media Market: Market Dynamics
Growing industrialization and urbanization
Increasing industrialization, along with economic growth worldwide, has led to an increase in urbanization. As there is a rise in the air, liquid, and soil emissions, this increase in industrialization has created a market for industrial filters. As it covers manufacturing processes and pollution control, air filters media is one of the industries with the most growth potential. Both developing and developed countries are major business centers for the media industry for air filters. For many developed and developing countries, including China, India, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, the US, Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, and Italy, manufacturing is one of the increasingly growing sectors. A big contributor to the GDP of these countries is the manufacturing sector. The rise in production facilities is expected to drive the demand for industrial air purification and pollution control, as strict regulations such as the Clean Air Act, the Air Quality Directive, and others on the release of polluted air are in effect.
Decrease in the quality of air
Owing to factors such as industrialization and urbanization, there is a decline in air quality across the globe. Therefore, internationally, pollution has become a health problem. As per the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that the majority of the population in the world is exposed to unhealthy air. The market for air filters is expected to increase with this high emphasis on reducing emissions, which in turn drives demand for air filter media.
Due to COVID-19 -19, sluggish growth in separate end-use industries
Industries have been affected by Covid-19 in a significant way. The food & beverage industry has seen restaurant sales decline. Tourism lapse, the suspension of major sporting events, the consumption of processed foods and drinks, internationally, has also taken place. The chemical industry has been affected by disturbances in the supply chain, declining demand, unavailability of employees, and so on. Similarly, this pandemic has also led to the O&G, textile, pulp & paper industries. The downturn in fast-moving consumer products is affecting the pulp & paper and textile industries. In the next few years, it is projected that the normalization of supply chains, the reduction of strict measures, the increase in retail consumption, the increase in construction activities, the stabilization of manufacturing activities, and others will improve economic activity and thus increase demand for air filters media.
