The U.S. air filter market size was valued at USD 3.78 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.07 billion in 2023 to USD 6.46 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

Air Filters are filtrate components used in the vent and duct systems to enhance the operational performance and sustainability of the products. The filter components are available in various filtrate materials such as vinyl polymers, Nano polymers, and other advanced materials offerings across the market for varied operational capabilities. The Filter is used across various industries such as automotive, chemical, gas turbines, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare.

This industry is highly competitive, driven by the technological advancements and integration of advanced product offerings to the filter element, which is expanding the market potential. Also, changing consumer demands supplemented by sustainability standards across the U.S. concerning rising air pollution norms. These drivers and trends across the local market are raising the potential for key players. Subsequently, economic uncertainty, recession short-term impact, and regional geopolitical tension is causing impedance to whey down the earnings. However, increasing awareness of ventilation filter elements and green buildings is expanding the U.S. Air Filter market share for the forecast period.


Economic Uncertainty across Regional Markets Causing Moderate Downfall

Post-COVID-19, leading market players operating across different developing nations and U.S. air filter observed a considerable decline with lower profit margins on the products raising competitiveness bars. Majorly, an abrupt manufacturing closure and decline in production levels hampered the production that plumed the sales of these market players.

Additionally, the high supply-demand gap, low manufacturing levels, and high raw material price curtailing reduction across the equipment market have compelled manufacturers to raise investments for new product development, causing additional backlogs and restricting the introduction of new products. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown how pivotal decisions are moving the market trajectory through new operational and marketing strategies.

Accelerated Construction of Green Buildings is Laying the Foundation for Future Market Growth

The emerging trend towards the construction of green buildings is empowering this market. This is owing to the rising awareness of occupants for health, stringent government norms regarding indoor air quality (IAQ), rising hazardous emissions, etc.

Furthermore, the growing demand for automation and sustainability standards across buildings, heating, and ventilation systems bolsters the demand for more automated and sustainable air filter products. Thus, automated procedures play an important role in laying the foundation of sustainability trends and green buildings, raising the bar for competitiveness.

  • For instance, In Dec 2021, Freudenberg, a global air filtration product manufacturer, released RPS Products soon after the acquisition of U.S. Protect Plus Air Holding Inc. that helps in maintaining indoor air quality.


Increasing Demand for Air Filter across Industrial Sector to Bolster the Market

The demand for air filters across the industrial sector is growing exponentially. It is because extensive capabilities offered by the products, such as capturing dust particles as low as pm 2.5, thereby minimizing the risks of molecular and microbiological contamination. Additionally, air quality monitoring in high-yield semiconductor manufacturing facilities is highly important than ever. Dirty Particulate and corrosive gaseous pollutants have become a serious problem in these facilities. Air filter, however, prevents the entry of this contaminant in high-yield facilities with industry-leading outdoor ventilation system and adjacent air filtration systems growing U.S. air filter market growth during the forecast period.

  • In September 2021, Mann Hummel, an air filter manufacturer, launched a combi Filter containing activated carbon to reduce harmful gas and odors in vehicles.


High Initial Investment and Frequent Maintenance are Probable Restraints to the Market

Air filters are necessary for ventilation and air ducting across the automotive and heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) industry, which has raised the potential income during the pandemic. However, high replacement costs and material choking of high particulate filtrate require frequent replacement, consequently lowering the demand and curtailing restraint.

Additionally, lower filtration and ventilation rates result in increased humidity levels, thus, adversely affecting the health condition of working as well as living occupants.

Moreover, the improperly installed location minimizes the fresh outdoor air intake and blockage of airflow, resulting in the contaminated intake air. This results in lowered filtration rate across the overall living surroundings. Also, the need for more awareness about filtrate standards and the unavailability of qualified technicians for air Filters over the past few years is shrinking the market size for the forecast period.
