Asia-Pacific was once valued at US$17.78 billion in 2011.
Following to Asia-Pacific, other regions such as Europe and the U.S. have also marked their presence in the consumption of filters in the global market. Owing to the strict regulations and environmental laws governing the release of harmful pollutants and chemicals, the demand for filters in Europe is expected to grow and account for more than 25% of the total market share by 2018. Similarly, the U.S. filters market was valued at US$10.10 billion in 2011. The region is popular for the presence of large replacement market, and is therefore growing at a rapid CAGR of over 5% from 2012 to 2018.
Moreover, high surge for different kinds of filters in consumer goods demand, particularly in the economies of India, China, and other Southeast Asian countries is expected to boost the market for filters too.
Some of the growth factors of the filters market analyzed in this report include implementation of stringent environmental regulations to meet the industrial and manufacturing units, automotives, commercial, as well as domestic purposes. Standard regulations such as Safe Drinking Water Act, Clean Air Act, and Euro 5 and 6 standards are expected to fuel growth of the filters market across the globe.

Development of alternate technologies such as photo-oxidation, ion exchange, and distillation which formerly delivered optimum results is nevertheless expected to hinder the growth of the filters market until the end of the forecast period.
