The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly weakened the supply chains and disrupted consumer demand owing to lockdowns & growing unemployment. Countries imposed stringent border restrictions to reduce the transmission of the virus which resulted in logistical challenges for optimal supply & distribution of residential filters. Companies are postponing the development of facilities for the production of filters such as pleated filters, to reduce capital expenditure amidst weakening economic conditions which may hamper residential production in the short to medium time frame. 

The temporary closure of manufacturing plants or operations at reduced staff strength in China, Japan and Malaysia and many other countries along with freight restrictions has further weakened the availability of imports in early 2020. However, after the 3rd quarter of 2020, the market has rapidly gained traction.

Major factors hindering the residential filters market growth is higher efficiency filters with a higher MERV rating result in added air flow resistance, which in turn reduces air flow for PSC blowers and increased blower power for BPM blowers. The system pressure changes also result in changes in duct leakages. Reduced system air flow in supply ducts results in reduction of the pressures across supply duct leaks and decrease in duct leakage. Reduced system air flow normally culminates in an increase in the return duct leakage, ultimately resulting in lower air conditioner efficiencies which may hinder the industry demand.

Residential Filters Market Analysis

Pleated air filters market is anticipated to register value over USD 1.5 billion by 2027 and is expected to show growth of around 9.5% of CAGR. The advantages of pleated air filters such as greater particulate capture, more surface area for particulate capture and do not promote bacterial growth is driving the residential filters market statistics.  Additionally, pleated filters should witness huge demand owing to its ability to offer better efficiency and better performance. The pleated filters are advanced filters that offers high level of filtration than other standard filters due to its ability to catch more particulate without restricting airflow.
