Global HVAC Filters Market (2021 to 2026) – Rising Investment in Construction Sector Presents Opportunities –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “HVAC Filter Market by Material (Fiberglass, Synthetic Polymer, Carbon, Metal), Technology (HEPA, Electrostatic Precipitator, Activated Carbon), End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage ) and region – “Global Forecast to 2026” report added to from offer.

The Global HVAC Filters Market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.5 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 4.5 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2026.

Synthetic polymer is expected to be the fastest growing material segment in the HVAC filter market over the forecast period.

Synthetic polymers are used for efficient filtration in residential and industrial HVAC systems. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyester, polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polyethylene and polypropylene are used to manufacture filter materials. Air filtration in a synthetic polymer material occurs on its surface, whereas in fiberglass, filtration occurs inside the filters. This property makes synthetic polymers suitable for application in industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, automotive, electronics and semiconductors. Synthetic polymeric filter materials are available as plies or stretched films, which are made using spun-bonded or melt-blown manufacturing processes.

Pleats increase surface area and make filters more effective at capturing airborne particles in HVAC systems. Synthetic polymer pleated air filters, with a rating of 7 to 13, can provide more efficiency over high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) filters, but at a lower cost. Due to their durability, these filters can be washed and reused. Pleated synthetic polymer air filters are available in abundance, have lower airflow resistance than HEPA filters, and support quiet blower fan operation of the HVAC system.

HEPA segment is expected to be the largest technology in the HVAC filter market during the forecast period.

HEPA technology consists of a filter that forces air through a fine mesh, which traps harmful particles such as pollens, molds, pet dander, bacteria and dust mite debris to prevent them from entering in the surrounding environment. According to the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), to meet the HEPA standard, a filter must retain 99.97% of dust particles from 0. 3 micron or more.

HEPA filters have various fields of application, including residential buildings, pharmaceutical production, food and beverage, and clean rooms in the electronics and semiconductor industry, among others. In the pharmaceutical industry, HEPA filters are installed in production spaces, which must be free of contaminants. These filters also protect patients from infections and employees and visitors from airborne organisms. The only downside to HEPA filter technology is that it creates a barrier to smooth airflow, which can cause HVAC systems to fail or perform poorly.

APAC is the largest market for HVAC filters

APAC accounted for the largest HVAC filter market share in 2020. Improving economic conditions in developing countries and increasing global warming are contributing to the growth of the HVAC filter market in the region.

The HVAC filter market in APAC has been segmented into China, Japan, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, and Rest of APAC. China is expected to lead the market over the forecast period, owing to the growth in commercial building construction in the country. On the other hand, the Indian market is expected to register the highest growth rate due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, growing disposable incomes and increasing building and construction activities in the country.

In Asia-Pacific, several associations, including the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), the Australian Institute of Refrigeration Air-conditioning and Heating (AIRAH), the Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors Association of Australia (AMCA), Japan Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Industry Association (JRAIA) and Air Conditioning Engineering Association of Thailand (ACAT) support the adoption of efficient HVAC systems. This support is boosting the HVAC filter market in the region.
