Increasing cases of combustible dust explosion coupled with increasing technological innovations to promote the use of dust collectors in food and beverage processing industries

The high level of dust emission in certain food processing industries such as cereal ingredients, spices, raw agricultural products, eggshell, sugar, flour and corn starch, among others is expected to raise the demand for dust collectors in the coming years. Moreover, increasing cases of combustible dust explosions in food processing facilities due to poor air quality may boost product demand. Increasing technological advancements such as development of different types of filter media such as nanofilter and PTFE media to increase filter efficiency may raise product demand.

Increasing dust emissions during mixing, screening, bag dumps and conveying processes in food processing is likely to drive market statistics. Availability of a wide portfolio of dust collectors for handling different types of dust such as wet, fibrous, abrasive, explosive and sticky dust may increase product acceptance among food processors. Dust collector segment of food & beverage air filters market exceeded USD 455 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a rate of 6.5% over the forecast period.

Increasing instances of cross-contamination coupled with growing clean label requirements to encourage the use of air filters in non-alcoholic beverage manufacturing

The increasing cases of quality instances caused due to the contamination of soft drinks and non-alcoholic beverages with particles, microorganisms and chemical compounds in recent years is compelling beverage manufacturers to install air filters in their facilities. The increasing need to prevent accidental contamination during bottling and packaging process may raise product demand from non-alcoholic beverage manufacturing. Growing clean label requirements are attracting the attention of non-alcoholic beverage manufacturers towards the adoption of highly efficient filtration systems during processing. Increasing technological innovations by key players in developing highly effective filtration systems may boost food & beverage air filters market demand. For instance, Parker Domnick Hunter has developed a PCO2 process for protecting the quality of carbon dioxide used in soft drink manufacturing. The product uses a six stage multi-layer adsorbent technology to preserve beverage quality during bottling process. Food & beverage air filters industry through non-alcoholic beverage application is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% over the assessment period.

Major players in the market are focusing on enhancing their existing manufacturing and research capabilities to meet the increasing consumer demands in the market. Moreover, companies are also investing heavily in research and development to develop innovative filter media and advanced filtration solutions to provide cost-effective solutions to food and beverage manufacturers. Players are focusing on acquisition of major contracts to increase their sales and enhance business. Some of the food & beverage air filters market players include 3M Group, Pall Corporation, Porvair Filtration Group Ltd., Camfil Group, Nano Purification Solution Ltd., APC Filtration, Inc., Air Filters, Inc., Parker-Hannifin Corporation, Donaldson Company, Inc. and Spirax - Sarco Engineering Plc.  

Increasing consumption of bakery and confectionary products coupled with rising consumer awareness regarding ingredient list in food and beverage products may augment the Europe food & beverage air filters market share

European market is expected to witness healthy growth during the review period owing to the increasing demand from bakery and confectionary product manufacturing industries. Manufacturing of bakery products involves the use of flour, wheat and other grains, which release high levels of dust during processing. Increasing inclination of consumers towards checking the ingredient list in various food and beverage products before purchasing may encourage manufacturers to install filtration equipment in their facilities.

 The increasing number of industries manufacturing both gluten-free and gluten-containing products in Europe demands the use of highly efficient filtration solutions to prevent the dust generated while manufacturing regular food products from mixing with gluten-free products, raising the product demand. Europe food & beverage air filters market was valued at over USD 250 Million in 2019 and is expected to witness over 7.4% CAGR throughout the forecast period.
