Market Overview

The Global "Fabric Filters Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 6.3% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

The fabric filters are the baghouses that are comprised of a large number of filter bags for continuously removing the collected material. The dust-laden air flows from the inside to the outside of the bags. The fabric filters work either through the shaker mechanism or a blown ring travelling slowly up and down for continuous removal of dust.

Market Dynamics:

The market is driven by the rising demand for fabric filters with the rising requirement of a safe working environment in industrial facilities. The increasing awareness of the impact of air pollution, growing industrialization, and increasing environmental concern due to global warming shall boost further demand for fabric filters.

The market is witnessing the technological advancement for the development of the fabric filter. For instance, the advancement of the fabric filters with respect to the temperature and tough working conditions with standability, filtration efficiency improvement has led to the development of fabric filters with different surface finishes and characteristics. The introduction of the micro-denier fibers which are lightweight, and high bulk, water repellent has led to the development of efficient and durable fabrics with respect to filtration efficiency. This has resulted in enhancing the efficiency of the fabric filters. Several companies are developing fabric filters with low-pressure filtration technology. This technology develops the fabric filters with a cleaning pressure of 0.8 bar. Low-pressure filtration is achieved by using a physical flow model study / computational flow distribution study. The fabric filters developed using the low-pressure filtration technology achieve low energy consumption, lower outlet emissions, extended bag life & overall reduced operational cost.

The rise in the launch of the novel filtration media shall stimulate market growth. For instance, in November 2018, Ahlstrom-Munksjö had launched the Ahlstrom-Munksjö Extia 1000, a breakthrough, highly durable, filtration media designed to extend filtration lifetime for Air Pollution Control applications. The Ahlstrom-Munksjö Extia 1000 would be useful for protecting the people and the environment. It would extend the filtration lifetime by more than 40%. It has a unique design and is easier to convert into a filter, on both knife and rotary pleating machines. It delivers highly effective removal of coarse particles at over 3 times lower levels of pressure drop.

However the availability of the substitutes especially the electrostatic precipitators (ESP). The electrostatic precipitators (ESP) are preferred over fabric filters especially for high-temperature applications like Clinker Cooler and treatment of flue gas in the power plant.

Segment Analysis

The global fabric filters market is segmented based on product types as pulse jet, reverse jet, and others. The pulse jet segment accounts for the highest market share due to the rising uptake of the fabric filters because it requires less fabric that resulting in reducing the baghouse size and capital cost for pulse jets. It is comprised of the reduced energy cost adjustable cleaning mechanisms based on system pressure drop maintains low-pressure drop, with minimum compressed air consumption. It provides continuous, and automatic bag cleaning. It provides smooth operating dust control or material handling system. It is easy to install depending on its size. Minimal or no maintenance while using the pulse jet fabric filter. It is efficient in enhancing the bag life through the optimized bag cleaning mechanism and reduced compressed air usage. There is no necessity of building an extra compartment for off-line cleaning in pulse jet fabric filters. There are several pulse jet fabric filters available in the market. For instance, B&W’s pulse jet fabric filters feature design innovations that provide benefits such as long bag technology, Integral gas, and dust distribution devices, enhanced pulse system design, online maintenance access, various roof configurations, and optional bypass configuration. It is designed for constructability and modularization.

Further, the market is also classified based on the media type as liquid filter media, and air filter media. The liquid filter media accounts for the highest market share due to the high usage of the fabric filters with liquid media in various industries including food and beverages, chemicals, semiconductor, oil and gas, power generation, and other industries. The liquid filter media provides niches and lucrative opportunities including higher profitability in comparison to the air filter media. liquid filter media segment includes woven fabrics and nonwoven fabrics. The nonwoven fabrics segment accounts for the highest market share due to the ability of the nonwoven fabrics to trap particles throughout the depth of the media. The nonwoven fabrics have demonstrated better filtration performance and no slippage of yarn in comparison to the woven fabrics.

Geographical Presentation

By region, the global fabric filters market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, Asia-Pacific dominated the global fabric filters market and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period owing to the rising investment for the manufacturing and industrial sector. The majority of the major players of fabric filters are located in the Asia-Pacific due to the availability of skilled and cheap labors. The drastic market growth is expected to observe in the developing countries including India and China due to the rapid expansion of the power plants, chemical, and food & beverage industries. The increasing domestic income and purchasing power of people shall stimulate demand for fabric filters. It is further expected that the Asia-Pacific would maintain its dominant market position owing to the rapid industrialization over the forecasted period.

The North American region is expected to have positive market growth over the forecasted period due to the increase in the number of companies developing fabric filters. There is rising adoption of advanced fabric filters in various industries. The rising awareness regarding the use of the fabric filters shall stimulate market growth.

Competitive Analysis

The global fabric filters market is highly competitive with the presence of several international and local markets. Product diversification, revenue generation, and opportunities intensify the market competition. Ahlstrom-Munksjo, Lydall, Inc., Valmet, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Fibertex Nonwovens, Hollingsworth & Vose, Johns Manville are the leading market players with significant market share.
