Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Nonwoven Filter Media Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global nonwoven filter media market: 3M, Ahlstrom, Cummins Filtration, and Freudenberg.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DuPont, PEGAS NONWOVENS, KCWW, and DelStar Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing need for water and wastewater services. Sewage wastewater recycling is a major concern for many countries worldwide, to protect their environment and prevent water contamination. This has led local municipalities and governments to allocate a special budget for wastewater management and purification solutions.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing automotive industry. Nonwoven filter media is used for filtration of engine air, cabin air, oil, and fuel. The increasing demand for vehicles is expected to continue during the forecast period, which will create demand for nonwoven filter media. The improving economic situation and change in lifestyle together with rising consumer confidence have resulted in higher demand for new, fuel-efficient, and technologically advanced cars equipped with more safety features.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is efficiency issues in gas turbines. Gas turbines are used for electricity generation in power plants and industrial plants, or as compressors in pipelines, refineries, and chemical plants. These turbines intake a large amount of air, making the inlet filtration a critical part of the turbine system. Nonwoven filter media is being readily used for filtration of air in gas turbines. However, it is seen that using finer media as a filter shortens the life of a filter.
