Liquid and Air Filter Element Sales Will Exceed $34 Billion This Year

The commercial and residential building sector has been the biggest driver of sales of filter elements for various media this year, according to research by McIlvaine Co.

In its Air/Gas/Water/Fluid Treatment and Control: World Markets forecast, the research analyst notes that furnace, refrigerator, and other air and water filters used in residences, office buildings, and other governmental and commercial enterprises have made up $12 billion in sales thus far in 2013. These filters separate particles from air, gases, water, oil, and other media.

McIlvaine breaks down the $34 billion total filter element market by application (industry) and between liquid and air types. It identifies Clarcor and Donaldson as two suppliers that are entrenched in most of the industries covered in the research. Other filtration media companies that supply equipment to all sectors include Ahlstrom, Lydall, and Hollingsworth & Vose.

Following the residential/commercial building industry in biggest filter element sales is the industrial sector, which is split almost evenly between liquid and air filtration. Air applications are dominated by stack gas purification, and liquid applications are being led by membrane and non-woven filter elements for pharma production.
