Global ceramic filters market was valued near to USD 900 million in 2015. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13% from 2016 to 2024 (forecast period). This can be attributed to rising emphasis on environmental protection. Environmental agencies such as the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), EEA (Energy & Environment Affairs), NSF (National Science Foundation), etc. have implemented various mandates pertaining to air emissions as well as water treatment/disposal. This would trigger demand for ceramic filters in the coming years.
Ceramic filters possess properties like chemical inertness, low operational costs, and extended life. They are well-suited for multiple applications across major end-users. However, they require huge capital investments. This, coupled with price volatility could hinder market growth.
