Industrial filters are used in filtering or separating industrial oils, gases, and lubricants during operations. It can separate liquid and solid matter and allow them to pass through separate outlets without interrupting the operation. Filtration solutions are being currently employed by manufacturers in food & beverages, water & wastewater, oil & gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology.

COVID-19 Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the safety and hygiene of industrial operations and pushed for reforms in this effect. Manufacturers are responding to the health crisis by expanding their capacity and assisting healthcare workers and governments in curbing the spread of the disease. For instance, Freudenberg Performance Materials is currently increasing its capacity for nonwoven media for raising the numbers of face masks. The mask is being produced using natural fruit extracts and possesses the capability of capturing the virus.

Nanotechnology is being employed by industries for restricting the flow of the virus while letting air circulate freely. Ventilation systems employing this technology can restrict the movement of the COVID-19 virus and let operations continue unabated. According to the University of Houston, nanotech coatings are critical during cold weather and maintain indoor air quality. These coatings are expected to be installed throughout New York City and capture virus particles.

Competitive Landscape

The global industrial filtration market competition is driven by investments in latest filtration systems and policies rolled out by governments in various countries. Research and development, acquisitions, and product launches are strategies incorporated by players to stay afloat in the market. Replacement of old filters can be a prime opportunity for players to expand their reach in developing countries.
