The market research analysis categorizes the global filtration paper market into three major end-user segments. They are:

  • Food and Beverage industry
  • Automotive and others
  • Laboratory

Global filtration paper market by F&B industry

The increasing demand for fast food options in many emerging economies is encouraging fast food chains to expand their operations domestically and internationally. This increased number of foodservice establishments leads to a proportional rise in the demand for filtration papers. In 2016, the F&B segment dominated the global filtration paper market, with close to 67% of the market share.

Fried food products often account for profit margins of over 70%, in the restaurant business. For instance, in 2015, many restaurant owners in the Americas attained gross profit margins of over 75% from French fries, which augurs a very positive outlook for the oil filtration paper market.

Global filtration paper market by automotive and other industries

The automotive and other industries (healthcare, academia, cement and mining industry, genomics and proteomics, environmental monitoring, and oil and gas) are the second largest end-users of filtration paper.

The healthcare sector is also a significant end-user of the filtration paper market as it deals with bloodborne pathogens and pathogenic bacteria cultures in its studies and researches. Filtration papers are also used in the oil and gas industry to filter the chemicals.

According to Abhay Sinha, a lead research analyst at Technavio, “The emphasis on innovation and greater demand for knowledge will lead several companies to expand their R&D budget over the next five years, which, in turn, will add to the demand for filter papers during the forecast period.”

Global filtration paper market by laboratory

The increased number of research and testing facilities in the field of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology will lead to the rising demand for filtration paper during the forecast period. Increasing expenditure on R&D in these areas will drive the growth of the market. The pharmaceutical industry employs filtration in the drug manufacturing process.

The increase in research and testing facilities particularly in biotechnology will drive the demand for laboratory filtration papers and other filter media products. Another important area of laboratory filtration is food and beverage where filtration products are extensively used in food processing and quality control. The rise in demand from this end-user segment is likely to originate from North America and Western Europe where food safety norms are much more stringent.

“Corporate and government support and funding for the growth of innovative technologies and environmental protection are also major drivers of this market in APAC,” says Abhay.
