Biofilter Market: Overview

Biofilter or biological filter is an essential component in the filtration process of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS). The pollutants are consumed by various microorganisms and degrade into water, CO2, and biomass in the biofilter. Thus it assists the filter material to regenerate itself. The biofilter is used to treat polluted and contaminated gases that flow through the porous element and after passing through it, they are infused into the biofilm where the contaminants are degraded by various microflora.

An accurate and efficiently devised biofilter can work over a long duration of time by keeping the nitrite and ammonia concentrates at gradual levels that are not harmful to the fish. The effectiveness of the filter can be measured with the decrease in ammonia levels and continuous moderation in nitrite levels in the system. A biofilter regulates and manages the seeding of nitrifying bacteria. Biofilter systems consist of non-corroding elements like rock, ceramic, fiberglass, plastic, and many others that have a huge nitrifying area.

Biofilter Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing the use of biofilters in various industries to drive the market expansion

The use of biofiltration is more widespread in the petrochemical, paint, gas and oil, and wastewater treatment industries. Seaweeds are one type of biofilter because they catch the contaminants that are discharged from the gills of fish and other aquaculture animals.

The roots of plants can be utilized to make a biofilter to filter wastewater, according to a horticulture study from Penn State University. This biofilter is made of soil, limestone, and plants. Pollutants were removed by bacteria at the roots, and the wastewater was transformed into a useful resource. Additionally, the market for biofilters is developing as a result of the rising demand for biofilters for aquarium cleaning and filtration. According to the study, biofilter producers are working to create recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) that are affordable for small-scale fish farming investments.

The BioFishency and Aqua Shark companies worked together to create a RAS that is easy to use and advantageous for fish farmers. Due to the rising need for fish farming, the worldwide biofiltration industry is expected to experience exponential expansion in the years to come. The market companies that produce biofilters place a strong emphasis on enhancing the product's filtering rate, efficiency, and sustainability. These elements raise the cost of filters as a whole, which expands the worldwide biofilter market.

Biofilter Market: Restraints

Adverse climate conditions and lack of awareness limit the market growth

The main issues limiting the expansion of aquaculture production include rising water pollution, unfavorable climate patterns, and disease transmission among fish farms. In the upcoming years, it is anticipated that these reasons will impede the market for biofilters from expanding. In addition, fisheries are widely exported from nations in Asia and Africa. The overall biofilter market is anticipated to be impacted by inadequate technological advancement and a lack of adequate management knowledge. 

Biofilter Market: Opportunities

Government initiatives and technological advancements provide lucrative opportunity

Growing fish consumption is motivating those active in aquaculture and fisheries. In the upcoming years, it is projected that increased demand for aquarium fish would increase the need for biofilters. To meet the growing market demand, manufacturers are concentrating on technological advancements and product innovation. Moreover, many governments and NGOs are launching programs to support manufacturers.

For instance, FAO is carrying out a five-year project in Western Africa that is a component of a broader, GEF-financed initiative called the Coastal Fisheries Initiative that is run by numerous partners globally. Thus, increasing government initiatives and technological advancements are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion.

Biofilter Market: Challenges

Cost variability act as a major challenge to the market growth

Costs associated with installation, operation, and maintenance are all quite erratic. The price of the fans, media, ducting, and plenum are included in the capital expenditures associated with installing a biofilter. The cost of installing the biofilter may include labor and borrowed equipment. On mechanically ventilated buildings, a new horizontal biofilter will typically cost between $150 and $250 per 1,000 cfm. The price of a vertical biofilter is roughly 1.5 times that of a horizontal one. Estimated costs for the biofilter's annual operation and maintenance range from $5 to $10 per 1,000 cfm. This includes the expense of replacing the media after five years as well as the rise in energy costs for fans that blow air through the biofilter. Thus, the variability in the cost of biofilter act as a major challenge for market expansion.

Biofilter Market: Segmentation

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

Based on the filter media, the global market is bifurcated into ceramic rings, bio balls, moving bed filter media, and others. The ceramic rings accounted for the largest market share in 2021 and are expected to remain dominant over the forecast period. Ceramic rings are becoming more and more popular as an inexpensive and efficient bio medium. They are being utilized in aquariums more frequently and provide effective biological filtration by protecting the tanks from harmful pollutants. In addition, ceramic rings aid in the growth of good bacteria since consumers sees a higher buildup of ammonia and nitrites expelled by fish. Customers must be assured that these ceramic rings only promote the growth of healthy bacteria and do not filter contaminated water. Thus, driving segmental growth.
