Global Biofilter Market To Grow At A CAGR Of 8.3% By 2030

09-Dec-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global biofilter market size was worth around USD 2.4 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 4.9 billion by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 8.3% between 2022 and 2030.

A self-contained system called a biofilter uses biofiltration to clean dangerous air, water, and other everyday impurities. The biofiltration technique uses natural living materials like plants, peat, and wood to filter out harmful or irritating pollutants. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), among other air pollutants, are removed from the air in a range of industries and applications using biofilters.

The manufacturers in the global biofilter market are tapping into the unexplored potential of biofilters for creating new opportunities like the launch of self-cleaning filters in aquariums for the domestic & commercial sectors and thus boosting the market growth globally. However, the trend of self-cleaning filters is gaining significant traction from customers because cleaning the traditional filter was a tedious task, especially for the working population. The increasing popularity of huge land-based aquaculture is propelling the growth of the global biofilter market.

It has generated huge revenue for the manufacturer and is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the companies are enhancing the efficacy of RAS to fulfill the surging needs of the people in land-based aquaculture and thus boosting the demand for biofilters in the market globally. The growing water pollution in developing nations and widespread water-borne diseases are fueling the growth of the global biofilter market.

The added advantages like environmental sustainability, easy availability, multifunctional operations, and affordability in different sizes & styles are also fueling the growth of the global bio filter market. The advancing breeding method in aquaculture and increasing transport facilities will positively shape the trajectory of the global biofilter market during the forecast period. Technological advancements in bio-filter devices are also fueling the growth of the global biofilter market.

The global biofilter market is segmented based on type, filter media, application, end user, and region.

The global market is segmented based on filter media into ceramic rings, bio balls, moving bed filter media, and others. The ceramic rings held the largest market share in 2021, and it is anticipated that they will continue to rule during the projected period. Ceramic rings are gaining popularity as a low-cost and effective bio-media. They are used more commonly in aquariums and offer efficient biological filtration by shielding the tanks from dangerous pollutants. Additionally, ceramic rings help promote the development of healthy bacteria as consumers notice an increase in the ammonia and nitrites released by fish. Customers must be assured that these ceramic rings don't filter tainted water; rather, they merely encourage the growth of beneficial microorganisms.

Among the regions, North America accounts for the largest share of the global biofilter market due to the surging adoption of biofilters in the region and growing technological advancements. On the other hand, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising popularity of self-cleaning filtration aquariums in homes and businesses is one of the new opportunities that biofilter producers in the region are tapping on. Many customers find cleaning tanks to be a laborious task, particularly the millennial generation who have hectic work schedules. Thus, driving regional growth over the forecast period.

The global biofilter market is dominated by players like Phenomenex, Rolf C. Hagen, Inc, Membracon, Pentair, Allied Filter Systems Ltd., Marukan Co., LTD., Membrane Solutions, Pure Process, Filtrox AG, Gusmer Enterprises, Graver Technologies, Microfilt India Pvt. Ltd., Qian Hu Corporation Limited, Repligen Corporation, Clarence Technique, Waterlife Research Ind. Ltd., Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, Aquael, Aqua Design Amano Co., Ltd, Eaton Corporation, Spectrum Brands, Inc., Donaldson Company, Inc, Meissner Filtration Products, Inc., Gulfstream Tropical Aquarium Inc, Zoo Med Laboratories, Inc., Amazon Filters Ltd., ErtelAlsop, Porvair Filtration Group, Parker Hannifin Corporation, 3M, GE Healthcare, Sartorius AG, Danaher Corporation, Merck KGaA., among others.

Recent Development:

  • In April 2021, Aiming to increase yields and system capacity for aquaculture farmers worldwide, CerMedia LLC created MarinePure®, a porous, hydrophilic, ceramic biofilter media with vast surface area and efficient flow-through properties.
