Air filtration industry report now available from INDA
Feb '08
The increasing importance of air filtration is illustrated in a recently released “Air Filtration Industry of North America” report published by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry. The five principal markets studied includes: industrial dust filtration (bag filters), HVAC (consumer, commercial and HEPA/ULPA), face masks, vacuum cleaner bags and transportation (air intake and cabin air).

This is INDA's first focused analysis of the filtration industry and is the first in a two-part study being conducted on this industry. The second study will focus on liquid filtration markets and will be released in 2009.

The inaugural report places the North American (U.S. and Canada) air filtration market at the filter manufacturer's level at $3.1 billion in 2007, with average annual growth of 2.4% per year projected over a five-year period. INDA estimates the market will then reach $3.5 billion.

“INDA's mission is to promote the value and profitability of the nonwoven/engineered fabrics industry worldwide and it is also our role to serve the worldwide interests of our many members and consumers of the industry's products,” says Ian Butler, Director of Market Research and Statistics at INDA. “To that end, this report provides a benchmark of the industry at the beginning of the 21st century and its outlook for growth by geographic region.”

Among the top-line findings of the new “Air Filtration Industry of North America” report:
•The filter segments that are expected to have the most rapid growth are industrial dust filtration's bag house filter and cartridge filters, consumer/residential HVAC filters, HEPA/ULPA, disposable face masks and in-cabin automotive air filters.
