Bacterial Filter Market – Market Insights

Bacterial filters are water and air purifiers, which prevents a range of pathogens to enter water or air. The pore size of bacterial filter membrane ranges from 0.5-5??m in diameter. The bacterial filter restricts the passage of bacteria through the membrane. Bacterial filters are used majorly in homecare and hospitals settings, in order to reduce bacterial counts from patients' exhaled air.

Depending upon the size of the filtrate, the filtration process in bacterial filters is carried out through techniques such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and others. The micro-filtration process allows filtration of particles that are smaller than 0.1 microns. Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration technique and is known as reverse osmosis. It is used for removing suspended particles (0.01 to 1.0 microns) including bacteria, viruses, other parasites from water. Nanofiltration removes microbial particles as well as organic ions such as chlorides or sodium, and Natural Organic Matter (NOM). Nanofiltration filters have a pore size of around 0.001 micron.

The global bacterial filter market is expected to be valued at US$ 2,273.0 million in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period (2019-2027).

Increasing product approvals and launches are expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period

Key players are focusing on enhancing their product portfolio through product launches and approvals of bacterial filters by regulatory authorities, which are expected to drive growth of the bacterial filter market over the forecast period. For instance, in January 2020, Bulex (a Belgium-based company) launched latest air purifier AF-3222 in the U.S., featuring three times larger filter surface area, higher purification efficiency, and enhanced safety for kids.

Moreover, in March 2017, Helen of Troy launched PUR Water Filter Systems under its product segment Health and Home in Canada. The system is designed to remove 99% lead from drinking water including 96% mercury, and 92% of certain pesticides.

Increasing demand of bacterial filters for respiratory conditions is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period

Manufacturers are focusing on expanding their product portfolio and strengthen their market position by providing innovative bacterial filters for respiratory conditions such as asthma, and homecare settings. For instance, major players such as Medtronic Plc., Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA., and Philips Respironics Inc. offer Puritan Bennett Reusable Pediatric-Adult Expiratory Bacteria Filter, Drager Filter MK00514 Bacteria filter, and Respironics PLV Continuum 1B II, respectively

Moreover, increasing product approvals are likely to drive the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2017, Nephros, Inc. (a medical device company) announced that it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA to market its EndoPur Endotoxin 10 Filter. The EndoPurTM Endotoxin 10” Filter is designed to provide pure water for dialysis machines in order to carry out the hemodialysis.

However, limitations of using bacterial filters is expected to negatively impact the market growth. For instance, the bacterial filters usually have short life span and are available for single use only. Similarly, bacterial filter membranes have fixed sizes, which allow viruses and some mycoplasmas to pass through. Such limitations over various advantages of bacterial filters are expected to restrain growth of the market over the forecast period.

Key Players

Major players operating in the global bacterial filter market include General Electric Company, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, Medtronic Plc., Teleflex Incorporated, A-M Systems LLC., Danaher Corporation, Aqua free GmbH, and SunMed.
