Market Overview

The China Depth Filtration Market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Depth filtration in China is mainly used in biopharmaceuticals, food and beverage, medicine, chemicals, and many other industries for the microfiltration of fluids. China country is the leading source of the raw materials required for manufacturing depth filters. The depth filtration equipment in China is mostly used by the food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals industries.

Depth Filtration is substantially used in end-user industries such as food and beverages, water filtration systems, oils, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other sectors in China.


Market Dynamics

China depth filtration is driven by rising demand by the leading biopharmaceutical and food and beverage industries, with the surge in government investment. Depth filtration is used for the microfiltration of fluids in the food processing industries. Depth filtration removes the impurity by collecting unwanted particles with filter media bypassing the fluid's flow through it. Further, China's depth filtration market is driven by a surge in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages' production and consumption. The demand for the depth filtration market is driven by rising demand by the end-user industries such as oils, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and many others for colloid removal and suspended particle removal.

Rising investment by the biopharmaceutical industry with the surge in government schemes and initiatives for healthcare has a depth filtration market with maximum demand by China's urban populations.

The market is driven by a surge in demand in the biopharmaceutical industries due to growing government support and China initiatives. For instance, in the biopharmaceutical industries, depth filtration products such as filter sheets and filter modules provide microfiltration activities in these industries. Also, as per the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee in 2018, China has the world's second-largest pharmaceutical market, which reached US$ 127.9 billion and is expected to reach US$ 161.8 billion by 2023. It created a massive demand for the depth filtration market in China.

The rising demand for the development of the food and beverages processing industry due to growing population demand has propelled the need for the depth filtration market in China. For instance, as per the USDA government organization, China's food processing industry revenue reached US$ 1.47 trillion in 2017, which is increasing at the rate of 6.3% as compared to 2016.

Also, rising leading food and beverages leading manufacturer investment in China due to a surge in the growing population demand have propelled the market growth. For instance, on 2nd August 2020, PepsiCo invested around US$ 100 million for the expansion of the production facility of the food factory at the Shanghai factory. The company included a new production line and introduced advanced packaging and warehousing technology at the Songjiang plant. It created a massive demand for the depth filtration market in this China.

The high capital cost required for manufacturing and the presence of several local manufacturers, which makes the market highly competitive it may hinder the growth of the depth filtration market

Depth filtration products include filter sheets, filter press, and filter modules manufactured locally in China due to massive raw material sources. Thus, China's depth filtration market is highly competitive due to the presence of a fragmented number of players in China.

The growing launch of the advanced technology-based depth filtration products to enhance by the leading payers due to increasing demand by the biopharmaceutical and food processing industry may strengthen the depth filtration market's growth.

China's depth filtration market is fragmented by several local and global leading manufacturing companies. The top manufacturers in China are focusing on developing and launching new technology-based depth filtration products to strengthen the filtration's capacity and efficiency, which may create a massive opportunity to grow the depth filtration market.

For instance, on 11th February 2020, Porvair filtration launched a new microfiltration catalog suitable for high-purity applications such as the nuclear and pharmaceutical industries. The products found by the company include CompfilTM ST, a wound depth filter with the inner and outer guard, CompfilTM WV, a pleated depth filter made of stainless steel, and Teffil HF fully optimized high flow PTFE membrane filter. It created a massive opportunity for the growth of the depth filtration market in China.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The China depth Filtration Market has shown immense declination due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as several leading manufacturing industries were closed. China’s government has announced a lockdown from 25th January to 9th February, which restricted production activities and all the operations during the covid-19 pandemic. During this period, China’s food and beverage processing industry declined by 46% due to its lockdown. In contrast, as per the Chinese Cuisine Association, food services companies in China fell by 93% of foodservice companies due to ceased operation.

However, the demand for depth filtration is slightly increased in March 2020, as several leading manufacturers started production. The leading manufacturers of the food and beverages and pharmaceutical industries have announced massive investments in China despite the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For instance, on 20th May 2020, Nestle invested around US$ 103 Million in Chinese Facilities for enhancing the production capacity of pet food, plant-based products, and confectionery.

Also, the depth filtration market demand is driven by increasing pharmaceutical products such as hand sanitisers and immunity-boosting products sales in China. Further demand will increase as soon as the covid-19 pandemic will be over.

Depth Filtration Market Segment Analysis

The China depth filtration is segmented based on component, product, application, and region.

Rising demand in the pharmaceutical and chemical products producing industries due to raw materials in huge quantities has propelled filter sheets segmental growth for this market.

In terms of components, the China depth filtration is bifurcated into filter sheets, filter modules(12'' and 16''), and filter press (housing) (plate and frame filters). The filter sheets segment has the highest market share in 2019 due to the surge in demand by the small and medium scale chemical processing industries in China due to raw materials in huge quantities. For instance, as per The European Chemical Industry Council, China is the leading producer of chemicals, contributing around 35.8% of the global chemicals sales share in 2018. The chemicals industry in China reached around US$ 1450 billion in 2018, whereas global chemicals reached 4,195 billion in 2018. Thus, it created a massive demand for the depth filter sheets used in China's chemical industry for filtration.

Increasing demand by the leading biopharmaceuticals and pharmaceuticals manufacturers in China with the surge in government support and initiatives have propelled the demand for pharmaceuticals segmental growth for the depth filtration market.
