Air filters work by capturing mold, dust and other particulates, preventing it from circulating throughout the air.
Even if the air inside your home or workplace "looks" clean, it probably has a plethora of dust, mold, bacteria and other debris floating around. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) even ranks indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental hazards, attesting to the severity of this problem. Air filters, however, offer a simple and effective way to combat indoor air pollution.
Air filters have a simple design but play an important role in maintaining clean, pollutant-free air. Most homes and workplaces have a central climate control system through which cool or warm air travels, depending on the setting. Included in this system is a rectangular-shaped object that captures pollutants.

The report even cites a list of competitive development factors like contracts and agreements, market expansion, new productions, acquisitions and mergers, etc.
HEPA filters are a specific type of air filter that works by forcing air through a mesh trap that captures pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke and more. It's generally considered more effective than traditional non-HEPA filters. As such, HEPA filters usually cost more than their counterparts. Many people agree, however, that they are well worth the investment due to their increased efficiency.
Some of the key HEPA filter vendors profiled in this report include Camfil Group, AAF International, Freudenberg Group, MANN+HUMMEL, Donaldson Company, Inc., CLARCOR Industrial Air, APC Filtration Inc., Dafco Filtration Group, Koch Filter Corporation, and Flanders Corporation.
According to the Industrial Air Filtration Market Analysis By Product (Dust Collectors, Mist Collectors, HEPA Filters, Cartridge Collectors And Filters, Baghouse Filters), By Application (Cement, Food, Metals, Power, Pharmaceuticals) And Segment Forecasts To 2020 report by Orbis Research, the industrial air filtration market is expected to reach $6.23 billion by 2020.
