Gas-phase filtration media are those that are used in the process of removing pollutants and impurities from the air using chemical agents and specialized filter media. More specifically, sodium permanganates or activated carbon, highly preferred by a vast base of consumers, make up filter media in most cases. Typically, sorbent materials, also known as gas-phase filtering systems, are used to absorb chemical contaminants and remove them from indoor air accurately. Packed beds and combination filters are the most common products to stop air contamination. Additionally, it aids in the removal of industrial waste, and hazardous toxic gaseous pollutants are discharged into the environment, harming the air quality and endangering human health. Gas phase filtering is becoming increasingly important to increase the effectiveness of lowering aberrant gases and regulating odors in industrial applications.
North America Gas Filtration Media Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Increasing awareness toward the impact of both indoor and outdoor air quality
A tremendous number of resources (such as electricity, water, and food) are needed in society to sustain human activities, given the growing population expansion and the economy's rapid development. Various forms of pollution have been created as a result. Due to its pervasive nature, the harm it causes to the environment, and the health risks it poses to people, air pollution is one of the many pollution issues that has generated significant concern around the globe. The chemicals and contaminants in the air that make it dirty can have a negative impact on health. People are becoming more aware of the importance of indoor and outdoor air quality to avoid these health concerns.
- In May 2021, the National Library of Medicine published an article on "Outdoor Air Quality Awareness, Perceptions, and Behaviors among U.S. Children Aged 12–17 Years, 2015–2018". It concluded that the awareness about air quality is increasing gradually
Raising public awareness of air quality issues is essential for maintaining a sustainable lifestyle at the forefront of people's thoughts and also presents a chance to inform and inspire people to contribute to the preservation of nature. An important tool for bringing about change is education.
Thus, the rising awareness about the significance of indoor and outdoor air quality among people is expected to drive the market's growth.
- Shifting inclination toward air quality trends
Clean air can reduce the risk of lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and acute and chronic respiratory disorders such as asthma. Lower air pollution levels improve both long- and short-term heart and respiratory health. People are becoming more aware of the significance of pure air, which is reflected in trends in air quality. Consequently, individuals are drawn to trends in air quality.
Global air pollution has significantly changed as a result of lockdown measures taken to contain the COVID-19 epidemic. Globally, air quality has improved as a result of the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic-related statewide lockdown in various nations. Reduced vehicle traffic and industrial and construction activity contributed to a decrease in exhaust, and non-exhaust emissions, primarily suspended dust. Therefore, this benefit to air quality during lockdown makes individuals more conscious of air quality trends.
- In June 2022, U.S. environmental protection agency released a report on "National Air Quality: Status and Trends of Key Air Pollutants." It mentioned that air pollution emissions still have a big impact on a lot of problems with air quality
Thus this shifting inclination towards air quality trends is expected to act as a driver of the market's growth.
Environment concerns leading to more stringent regulations for clean air and water
The government has implemented stringent regulations to control rising environmental pollution and global warming. Excessive exposure to nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide can aggravate or cause the development of asthma and respiratory illnesses. The two substances also help to create acid rain, which harms the ecosystem by decreasing the release of carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter into the atmosphere. Automotive emission rules are being introduced worldwide. The gas phase filters can remove gaseous contaminants and volatile organic carbons from the air. The quest for more eco-friendly energy is another factor driving the filtration market. Furthermore, growing concerns regarding environmental pollution and its toxic effect on human health are expected to drive the market's growth. Moreover, the government passing strict rules for the emission of gases into the environment and promoting filtration equipment's use in industries and households is propelling market growth.
In November 2021, according to Auto Express, in mass-produced petrol and diesel cars, the Euro 6 emissions standard seeks to lower levels of harmful exhaust emissions from cars and vans
In January 2020, according to European Commission, in response to growing environmental concerns, including those caused partly by harmful emissions from ships, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will enforce a new global sulfur cap on fuel composition of 0.5 percent from the current 3.5 percent
In January 2022, according to the United States Pharmacopeial Convention, the requirements include regular particle monitoring and measurements to guarantee that locations with the greatest potential for risk satisfy air cleanliness standards. USP 797 establishes guidelines to prevent patient damage from contaminated or incorrectly manufactured compounded sterile preparations (CSPs)
