Markets for pollution and flow control will be down slightly in 2009

Apr 24 2009

Suppliers of air and water pollution control equipment along with manufacturers of pumps and valves will experience only slight decreases in sales in 2009. This is the conclusion of the McIlvaine Company (USA) in "World Market for Your Products", a continually updated forecast by product, industry and country.

While the net result is a slight decline in revenues, there are big variances among products, industries and countries.   There are differences by product. High efficiency air filters will be down but medium efficiency air filter sales will be up. Reverse osmosis filter sales will be up, whereas, drum filter sales will be down. Electrostatic precipitator sales will be down but fabric filter sales will be up.   There are big differences by industry.   Market Growth Rates:
