Summary Methodology

Nonwoven Filter Media Market size is anticipated to witness substantial growth during forecasted time period pertaining to increasing applications in healthcare, agriculture, textiles, personal care, automotive and transportation industries. The product is used in electronics, medical and industrial processes owing to high potential to capture fine particles from air with efficiency of about 99.97% which may stimulate the market growth.

The filter media is a sheet of fibers formed by mechanical and chemical entanglement which is widely used for air filtration. The product is inorganic, formed of synthetic fibers and  white in color in its original form. The product is formed by glass and synthetic polymers including polypropylene, polyethylene and polyesters. The product is soft, multilayered media which has very small pores, low weight and high permeability to attract dirt. The filters have the capability of capturing the smallest dust particle of around 0.3 micro milli with efficiency of about 99.95%. The filters media  have  small pores size which captures smallest of dust particles which is ideal for high efficiency filtration process and may drive the nonwoven filter media market growth.

Increasing demand for clean & pure water and  rising government regulations for water purification may enhance the filter media application. The filter media is cost effective with low price and provides high efficiency performance which may stimulate the product market growth. In 2018 the global purifier business was estimated to be over USD 30 billion according to a report. The filter media is used for water distillation and water purification owing to dirt removal property due to its small pore size.
