Nonwoven Filter Membrane Market

Nonwoven Filter Membrane

The nonwoven filter membrane consists of nonwoven fabrics used to separate undesirable particles from the liquid or gaseous liquids passed through them. This filtration media is widely used by manufacturers in the processes of air, gas and liquid filtration. The nonwoven filter membrane market is driven by growing consumer awareness of health issues with regard to product safety, air quality, water purity, etc. However, restricting the growth of the nonwoven filter membrane market is unfavorable for the regulatory environment, especially for applications involving the use of nonwoven filter media. In both product and application sections, technological advances would generate avenues for development on the global market.

The nonwoven filter membrane market is fragmented into spun-bond, meltblown, wetlaid, needle punch, and other technologies based on technology. In 2018, the segment for Spunbond accounted for over 40%. Spunbond technology is primarily used in automotive, health & personal care, and packaging applications. Spunbond films are lightweight, flexible, and have elevated liquid retention characteristics and are in essence cost-effective. Meltdown technology retained the second biggest share in the nonwoven filter membrane market in 2018 and is supposed to record the highest growth rate in the forecast period. It is an efficient method for developing fine filter media and separating them from synthetic fibers. Its effectiveness has made the establishment of sophisticated production lines easier for businesses. During the forecast period, Wetlaid is expected to be the second-highest growing technology segment. New innovations in this technology have been observed in terms of increased production rate. For instance, this technique can now be used to manufacture alumina-coated micro-glass fabrics that were previously hard to generate using this manufacturing technique.

Increasing demand for nonwoven filters is contributing to growing nonwoven filter membrane market size in multiple applications. The nonwoven filter membrane market is fragmented into transport, water filtration, HVAC, food & beverages, healthcare, manufacturing, advanced technology, and hydrocarbon refining based on applications. The largest share of transportation was 21.0 percent in 2019, followed by water filtration. During the forecast period, healthcare is anticipated to record a high growth level. Growing concerns regarding HAI (Hospital Acquired Infections) and SSI (Surgical Site Infections) are anticipated to fuel filter sales revenue for health-related applications.

Nonwoven Filter Membrane Market

Nonwoven Filter Membrane

In 2018, Asia Pacific dominated the demand for the nonwoven filter membrane market. The region's huge percentage is attributed to developing countries such as China and India that focus more on regulating air & water emissions, as well as the healthcare industry. China is the global leader in nonwoven medical products development and export. Due to stiff rivalry from alternative filtration technologies, North America and Europe experienced moderate growth in the nonwoven filter membrane market. Because of the extremely industrialized economy, the US is one of the main markets for nonwoven filter films. In 2018, North America's nonwoven filter media market accounted for a share of 20%. In 2018, Europe was the second biggest nonwoven filter membrane market with a global percentage of 30%. Nonwoven filter demand originates from nations like Germany, the United Kingdom, and Italy. Middle East market growth is attributable to substantial hydrocarbon processing activities in countries such as Saudi Arabia.

Key Factors Impacting the Growth of Nonwoven Filter Membrane Market:
    • Increased demand for nonwoven filter membranes especially in water treatment plants.
    • Increased demand due to the development of alumina- coated micro-glass.
    • Invention on nanofibers which makes use of nanotechnology.

Key Developments in the Nonwoven Filter Membrane Market:

  • In 2015, Ahlstrom Corporation developed a new Ahlstrom Disruptor Technology for water filtration. It is electro adsorptive technology that uses ion exchange and electro adhesion for contaminant removal. It uses natural mineral fiber, which provides better filtration efficiency for sub-contaminant particle removal.
  • In 2012, Sandler, a German company, launched a new production line VS 61 for meltblown nonwovens that has the capability to create new nonwoven structures for palatable filter media.
