Backwashing filtration is a process of pumping water backward through filter media. It is a type of process which involves preventive maintenance of filter media so that it can be reused. The automatic backwashing filtration process runs by local programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in water treatment plants. An automatic backwashing filtration process is performed to detect, eradicate, and avoid contamination of mycoplasma in cell culture. It is done after initiation of time interval when the differential pressure across the filter surpasses a set value or when the filter overflows with turbidity, which is greater than a treatment guideline. These filters are very important for bio-therapeutic and vaccine manufacturing, as well as products of biology for clinical research. The global automated backwashing filters market is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to increase in demand for automated backwashing in different industries such as agriculture, water and wastewater management, and steel industry.
COVID-19 impact on industry -
COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in theautomaticbackwashingfilters industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of the automatic backwashing filtermarketsignificantly from last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.
COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.
Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.
Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis
These automatic backwashing filters have their use in conservation of water and its high demand in industryis being the factor of its growing market
Reduces the wastage of water
Automatic backwashing filters consume less water, which is a major factor anticipated to propel the automatic backwashing filters market in the next few years. This is primarily because these filters have a drain valve, which has backwashing capacity and it consumes less water. Thus, backwashing filtration ensures low water consumption during the process. Automatic backwashing filters are equipped with different sets of meshed screens that increase the filtration process, which is a key factor contributing toward the growth of the global automatic backwashing filters market. In addition, automatic backwashing filters require fractional horsepower (FHP) motors, which absorb minimum energy. Also, the initial head loss or differential pressure is minimal for automatic backwashing filters as compared to media filters. Therefore, automatic backwashing filters consume less water and minimum energy, which is a key factor contributing toward the growth of the global automatic backwashing filters market in the forthcoming years.
Growing demand of energy
Increase in energy consumption, growth in energy demand, and rise in population shift from rural to urban areas are some of the major factors expected to boost the market across the globe. There is an increase in demand for energy with the rise in population, thus there is an increased need of conservation.Mining industry is one of the major end-users of automatic backwashing filters. The mining industry has witnessed an abrupt decline in the process of minerals. This is expected to adversely impact the adoption of automatic backwashing filters among users, thereby hindering the growth of the market.
