Thermal treatment air filtration is a method used for filtration of the exhaust gases generated from various industrial processes. This exhaust gases are heated at a very high temperature in an oxidizing chamber in order to break the bond between polluting compounds. The resultant compounds is mixed with oxygen, which is present in the chamber to form CO2 and H2O. Thus, this process is suitable for removing hazardous airborne pollutants from the environment. As various industrial processes generate toxic chemicals, which are harmful for the environment, demand for thermal treatment air filtration increases, as it helps in purifying the air from the toxic chemicals. Major factors such as continuous degradation of air quality, increasing awareness about air purifying technologies, along with rising health consciousness among consumers are expected to aid in growth of the market Furthermore, increasing adoption of advanced technology by the various end-use industries, in order to minimize the effects of toxic gases in the environment are also propelling growth of the thermal air filtration market.
Rising pollution that is adversely affecting the environment is one of the major driving factors for growth of the market
Increasing industrial pollution is responsible for spreading various disease caused by toxic pollutants such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and cardiovascular problems. For instance, according to the WHO analysis, in 2015 around 3 million people died due to air pollution. Rising awareness towards the adverse effects of polluted air on health has propelled growth of thermal air filtration market, as it helps in reducing the effects of toxic pollutants in the environment, which proportionally increases the quality of the air. Moreover, supportive government regulations in order to control air pollution and increasing concern for health disorders demands for improving quality of air are also factors supporting growth of the market. For instance, the Clean Air Act 1970, was implemented to protect public health and public welfare and to regulate emissions of hazardous air pollutants. Furthermore, rise in growth of industrialization worldwide has led to increasing air pollution along with increasing emission of additional toxic contaminants such as sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and particulate matter. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2016, around 2.71 million tons of sulphur dioxide emissions were recorded by the coal and mining industries. Thus, demand for thermal air filtration has increased as it helps in controlling the level of air pollution.

Global Thermal Air Filtration Market: Regional Insights
On the basis of geography, the global thermal air filtration market is being divided in to the following region North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. Asia Pacific held the dominant position in the market during the forecasted period. This is owing to rising awareness about air borne diseases has forced industries to adopt thermal air filtration for improving the quality of the air, are among few of the major factors driving growth of the thermal air filtration market in this particular region. Rapid industrialization in the developing countries such China, Japan is one of the major factor that help increasing the demand of the thermal air filtration. Moreover, new policies to control environmental pollution is expected to fuel growth of the thermal air filtration market in this region. For instance, the air (Prevention and Control of pollution) ACT, in 1981, an Act of the parliament of India was stated in order to control the air pollution. This has forced industries to adopt prevention measure for controlling the level of pollution, which is expected to aid in growth of the market.
