Nonwoven Filter Media -- Technologies and Global Markets | Nonwoven Fabric | Hvac

BCC Research expects the need for cleaner products and processes to drive global market value for

nonwoven filter media to $5.3 billion by 2018

Nonwoven materials are used worldwide in a variety of applications, including construction, apparel, hygiene products, wet wipes, medical dressings, automotive end uses, geotextiles, home furnishings, and filtration. Since the end processes that utilize nonwoven filter media are designed to control pollution and the purity of fluid streams, they are heavily regulated. Critical filtration processes include several application sectors: water filtration, HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning), manufacturing, and food processing. Increasing consumer awareness of product safety, water purity, and air quality and their long-term effects on human health are prompting new technological trends in the filtration industry. Although the markets for each sector and world region are affected by different driving forces, some common drivers cut across all applications and regions. The most important factor affecting market growth is the need for cleaner products and processes as mandated by legislative standards. Additionally, consumers’ desires for purer water, air, and other goods make up another strong force that drives the growth for nonwoven materials.
