Global Industrial Filter Paper Market Growth during the Forecast Period, 2018-20

Posted by Arslan on February 13th, 2019

Industrial filter paper acts as a semi-permeable paper barrier when it is placed perpendicular to the flow of the liquid. It is used for the separation of solids and liquids in bulk. It helps create solutions with optimum clarity, flow rate and improved overall performance.

Industrial filter paper is available in different grades, which include plain, embossed, non-woven and other standard grades for applications where clarity is a major concern. Industrial Filter Paper Market can be customised in different features and formats according to the requirements of end users. Customised industrial filter paper is usually used for the filtration of oils, beverages and galvanic baths. Pain and embossed industrial filter paper provides a larger filtration area and offers high filtration speeds.

Filter boards are manufactured according to specific applications, and they can be produced in disc or sheet formats with one or more holes, which enables their usage in filter press systems. Non-woven industrial filter paper is made of rayon and polyester. Industrial filter paper offers a wide range of filtration efficiencies, which include the provision of an assembly path for the impingement of target particles. In addition, the non-woven medium offers depth filtration as well as high particle retention capacity. Industrial filter paper finds applications in industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics, etc. It is used for the decolourization and deodorization of gases or liquids. Industrial filter paper is activated with carbon and remove most organic as well as certain inorganic contaminants from the fluid that is being filtered. Industrial filter paper exhibits high wet strength and can be easily used in filter presses.

Global Industrial Filter Paper Market: Dynamics

The industrial grades of filter paper include Industrial Standard (IST), Industrial Wet Strengthened (IWS) and Industrial Heavy Duty (IHD). Industrial filter papers are used for less sensitive but low-cost analytical work. They are widely used as emission controls for chimneys, gas pre-filtration, upstream of measuring apparatus, etc. In addition, industrial filter paper can be used in high temperatures of up to 500°C.  Furthermore, industrial filter paper is bleached white and the smooth surface offers easy scraping or spraying of precipitates off the surface.  

The demand for high accuracy and quality of products in sectors such as medical & diagnostic, food & beverages, chemical & pharmaceutical industries and the recycling of oil & industrial liquids is driving the market. In addition, industrial filter paper is used as an aid in the production process of products and as a basic material or as a substrate for chemical materials due to its high absorbency. The filtration and separation industry provides the best current technology in support of a cleaner environment. Stringent regulations pertaining to emissions and industrial waste is expected to drive the market for industrial filter paper.

Global Industrial Filter Paper Market: Regional Outlook

The U.S is likely to account for the highest share in the global industrial filter paper market during the forecast period followed by the U.K. Steady industrialisation and the demand for high-quality products is among the key drivers of the market. Moreover, high demand from the food & beverage industry in countries such as China and India is expected to drive the market in the Asia-Pacific region.
