Industry Insights

The European industrial air filtration market size was worth USD 2.8 billion in 2019. The market is projected to register 6.5% CAGR over the forecast duration, 2020 to 2027. The increasing need to control the air quality of various end-use industries is driving the growth of the market. Air filtration helps in improving the quality of air by reducing the concentration to a level mandated by law. In addition, increasing focus on reducing energy consumption in various industrial operations is likely to drive the demand for effective air filtration units. Further, concerns pertaining to environmental pollution coupled with stringent government regulation are predicted to bode well for the market growth.

Governments across Europe have implemented stringent regulations to curb the emission. These regulations are further strengthened keeping worker's safety in mind. For example, the Kyoto Protocol has been implemented in Europe to reduce the effect of greenhouse gas emissions. This has mandated industries to install air filtration units. Rapid industrialization in emerging countries has further increased the demand for air filtration units.

In the recent past, the air filtration industry has witnessed technological advancement. For example, the use of wet scrubbers offers several advantages such as low usage and cost of reagent, reduced overall life cycle, and others. The addition of emulsifier sulfur in inhibited oxidation process reduces the rate of oxidation to less than 15%, thereby, permitting the use of cost-effective materials by eliminating the risk of corrosion. Therefore, technological advancements and the usage of advanced machines are likely to spur market growth.

Industrial air filtration units find their applications in several industry verticals such as manufacturing, cement, pharmaceuticals, food, and metal among others. However, the high cost of these systems may restrain their growth. Contaminated air purification requires advanced equipment, which increases the overall cost. Further, it makes the maintenance cost expensive along with higher energy consumption.

Product Insights

Based on the product, the European industrial air filtration market is classified into HEPA filters, baghouse filters, wet scrubbers, dry scrubbers, welding fume extractors, oil mist collectors, dust collectors, and cartridges collectors & filters. Of them, the wet scrubber category accounted for over 45% share in the market in 2019. Further, the segment is projected to register more than 6% CAGR from 2020 to 2027. Wet scrubbers can be suitable where there is a requirement for constant airflow. However, factors such as high consumption of power, waste generation, and corrosion problems are anticipated to impede its market growth.

On the other hand, dry scrubbers are increasingly used as an alternative to wet variants. Dry scrubbers have been designed in a way as it overcomes various disadvantages such as low operating cost, lesser generation of waste, and corrosion-resistant associated with wet ones. Owing to these factors, dry scrubbers are projected to register the highest growth over the next seven years.

End-use Insights

Air filtration in industries plays a key role by eliminating the risk of molecular and microbiological contamination. They are increasingly used in a wide range of industries such as food, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, power, agriculture, cement, metal processing, plastic, and others. Of them, the power end-use category accounted for over 15% share in the market in 2019. Further, the segment is likely to witness a 6.0% CAGR over the forecast duration. Increasing usability of air filtration in handling hazardous, radioactive gas and the toxic element is further predicted to bolster its demand in industrial operation.

In 2019, the food end-use segment held more than 15% share in the market. In the food industry, air filtration helps in supplying purified and quality air. The growing need to adhere to food safety norms is supplementing the installation of air filtration units in the industry. The focus on reducing the potential hazards in the food industry is gaining traction, which in turn, is attributing to the market growth. 

Regional Insights

In the European industrial air filtration market, Germany held more than 20% share in the market in 2019. Further, it is predicted that the country would dominate the market for the next seven years. In addition, Germany is anticipated to witness maximum growth from 2020 to 2027. Several pharmaceuticals companies are making their entry into the German market, which in turn, is likely to augment the growth of the market. In addition, stringent regulations regarding worker's safety and emission control are further predicted to supplement the growth. 

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 outbreak adversely affected the growth of the market. European countries such as Italy, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany witnessed a significant decline in the GDP due to the virus outbreak that led to the closure of various industrial operations. The shutdown also resulted in low demand for industrial air filtration units along with a weak supply chain.

However, European countries have witnessed a reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases in the third quarter of 2020, which allowed them to reopen their industrial operations. Moreover, governments have provided a significant amount of their GDP to revive the economy, which in turn, is projected to positively affect the market growth.
