According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Bag Filter Market is accounted for $11.57 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $16.83 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. A bag filter is a type of filtration device that is commonly used in the industries to keep a check on air pollution. It traps the air pollutants by separating the gas-solid mixture through a filtration process. Moreover, bag filters are sediment filters consisting of small permeable pores having pore size 1-200 micron and works on the principle of microfiltration. From a business perspective, these bag filters provide versatility, is cost effective and has great efficiency as well in terms of removing dust. Bag filters can deal with larger air volumes of dust and have high efficiency for dust removal. In addition, properties like equipment resistance and long service life further contributes to the technical performance of these filters.

Market Dynamics:


Government regulations to reduce air pollution

The government regulations for particulate control have taken a different shape over the past decade. In the developed countries of North America and Western Europe, several new regulations have been introduced to control harmful industrial emissions. Frequent modifications of regulations make it mandatory for the industrial players to install and upgrade the bag filter systems in their plants. The industry is highly regulatory driven. Various countries have different norms to control the emission of harmful compounds such as SOx, NOx, VOCs, and toxic metals. For instance, the European Union, some of the main regulations and standards include Air Quality Directive, The VOC Solvents Emissions Directive, and IPPC Directive. Such strong regulations and standards compel the utility and industrial players to install bag filter systems. This factor is anticipated to drive the bag filter market.


Deliberate implementation of pollution control reforms

Pollution control programs focus on detailed regulation of air quality monitoring and frequent upgrades to the latest technologies. This, however, results in increased product procurement costs, which restrict the adoption of environment protection initiatives among industries and residential users. To reduce air pollution, many developed and developing nations have often amended many environmental laws and regulations that are directed at controlling the industrial emissions of air and water. However, this has not helped to reduce environmental emissions or improve air quality. For the effective implementation of standards, it is vital for industries to comply with environmental norms. On the other hand, the complexity of environmental monitoring and pollution control reforms result in limited implementation of the standards, especially in countries such as China and India.


Growing implementation of mercury and air toxics standards

The MATS replace a hard-numerical emission limit for dioxin/furan for new and existing coal- and oil-fired power plants, with work practices that require an annual performance test and tune-ups. To demonstrate compliance, plants will need to submit documentation that the unit has undergone regular inspections and maintenance, once every 36 months. The Environmental Protection Agency in the US introduced MATS to reduce mercury and other toxic air pollutants that are generated by coal- and oil-fired power plants across the country. The standard was implemented for all coal- and oil-fired electrical generating units that are larger than 25 MW. Due to the implementation of this standard, about 1,400 coal-fired power plants are being affected. Implementation of this new standard will drive the mercury control and particulate control equipment (bag filter) market in the US. Several coal-fired plants in the US are already adding or upgrading fabric filters to meet the MATS PM emissions requirements.


Presence of alternatives

Power generation through renewable energy sources could reduce the use of bag filter systems and services in the coming years. Moreover, in several countries, due to pollution concerns and cheaper availability, natural gas is preferred over coal for power generation. Although coal is a cheap source of power generation, alternative and renewable sources are also gaining importance. Many power generation sources, such as nuclear, hydro, wind, and solar, have no emissions. In a step toward cleaner environment, new constructions of coal-based power plants have seen a steep decline, especially in emerging economies such as India and China. China is also investing in clean coal technologies such as supercritical and ultra-supercritical plants that are about twice as efficient as subcritical boilers. Coal power is expected to be replaced with renewable energy because renewable energy generation is more cost-effective than fossil fuel and further restrictions are being imposed on coal-based power generation.

The pulse jet segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The pulse jet segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to increasing implementation of pulse jet filter to meet government emission norms across the globe. The shifting dynamics supporting this growth makes it critical for businesses in this space to keep abreast of the changing pulse of the market. Industries such and cement and mining cannot stop their production activity as it can have serious impact on their profitability. These industries heavily rely on pulse jet type air filters to meet their emission norms and to operate continuously.

The cement industries segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The cement industries segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Cement industry is one of the largest polluting industries in the world for particulate emission matter and the industry is dominated by major countries such as China and India. The pollution from cement industries such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), Sulphur dioxide (SO2), and grey dust are some of the biggest contributors to poor air quality, especially in the urban developments. On the other hand, increasing environmental laws supporting air quality control is increasingly being adopted in regions such as North America and Europe which is driving the market for bag filters.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to increasing adherence to pollution control norms by chemical and mining sectors and increasing air quality monitoring regulations in countries in the region. In the US, most of the air pollution control regulations are implemented and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some of the most important regulations in the US include the Clean Air Act, Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR), Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS), Maximum Achievable Control Technology Standards (MACT), and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPS).

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the rise in mining and cement factories and their increasing demand for bag filters. Rapid economic growth in the region would lead to an increase in the demand for cement and power generation from fossil fuel plants. Increasing environmental restrictions on pollution from the operation of these plants will boost the demand for bag filters in the region.

Key players in the market

Some of the key players profiled in the Bag Filter Market include Danaher, Eaton Corporation, Lenntech, Camfil Farr, General Electric, Donaldson, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Parker Hannifin, Rosedale Products, Thermax, Babcock & Wilcox, W.L. Gore & Associates, BWF Envirotech, and Shanghai Filterbag Factory Co., Ltd.

Key Developments:

In January 2022, Pall Corporation, a leader in filtration, separation and purification technology and a Danaher operating company, launched the new SupralonTM hydraulic and lube oil filter element range, a direct upgrade for Pall's Coralon®, Ultipor® and Red1000 series filters. Supralon filter elements incorporate a new pack construction with filter media utilizing stress-resistant technology (SRT) and showcasing anti-static properties, which ultimately help protect and prolong the life of equipment in hydraulic and lube oil applications.

In November 2018, Donaldson acquired BOFA International, a manufacturer of fume extraction systems across a wide range of industrial air filtration applications. This would help the company to expand its offerings in new industrial air filtration markets and applications.
