The harmonic filters market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.99% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$1,046.053 million in 2026 from US$743.691 million in 2019.


Harmonic filters are used to mitigate harmonics. Harmonics are voltages and currents. They recurringly multiply the fundamental frequency of 60Hz. An excessive quantity of harmonics can result in malfunction in the system, increasing the operational cost significantly. Hence harmonic filters have a wide application across various industry verticals employing heavy machinery. Oil and gas, metal and mining, paper and pulp, and water and wastewater treatment plants are key end-user industries oh harmonic filters since they require heavy current and voltage machinery for operation. Furthermore, the use of these filters enables the industries to reduce production time and cost.

By components, the harmonic filters consist of capacitors, inductors, and resistors. By geographical boundary, the global harmonic filter market is divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific regions. The North American harmonic filter market is expected to hold a dominating share owing to wider adoption and state of art infrastructure. The Asia Pacific and Middle East harmonic filter markets are projected to grow at the fastest rate owing to robust growth in numerous end users industries including mining and oil and gas industries. The European water and wastewater treatment industry is expected to create notable demand for harmonic filters in the region during the forecast period.

Market Trends.

With the increase in industry 4.0, a significant surge in demand for variable frequency drives has been observed. However, VFDs result in a higher disturbance in harmonic distribution, leading to power loss. Hence growing VFDs market is expected to drive the market for harmonic filters.

Furthermore, increasing awareness regarding the harmful effects of harmonic disturbance and strict government and industry regulations for safety acts as another factor that supports the market development of harmonic filters.

However, the availability of substitutes that are cost-effective tends to pose a threat to market growth. growing SMEs and increasing inclination of these SMEs towards cost-effective alternatives pose a major challenge for the market.

Growth Factors.

  • Surging penetration of variable frequency drives (VFDs) across various industry verticals is expected to drive the market for harmonic filters.

One of the prime factors which s expected to drive the market growth of harmonic filters during the forecast period is the increasing adoption of variable frequency drives (VFDs) in the manufacturing industry.  VFDs have witnessed a significant surge in installation across electrical power systems with an aim to reduce the overall power consumption. However, it has been observed that rising usage of VFDs has resulted in a higher disturbance in harmonic distribution, leading to power loss. High disruption also damages interconnected electric components such as resistors, batteries, and switches. Hence increasing complexities and higher adoption of VFDs are expected to increase market demand for harmonic filters. 

  • Rising adoption of VFD technology with the uproar of industry 4.0

With significant growth in industry 4.0 and a rise in adoption of VFDs in the electric network system, the harmonic filters market has notable growth opportunities during the forecast years. VFDs have witnessed an increase in deployment within the industry 4.0 circle, especially in the application which is high-power demanding. Significant growth in urbanization coupled with robust growth in the industrial sector is expected to drive significant market demand. Furthermore, with the uproar of electric reliability energy-saving market trends, the VFDs are projected to show robust growth which will drive the market for harmonic filters during the forecasted period. Furthermore, industrialization in major developing countries such as China, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and India accompanies by the increasing penetration of variable frequency drives (VFDs) across various industry verticals has driven the market.


One of the prime factors that are expected to constrain the market is the adoption of harmonic filter technology among the small-scale industries is sluggish, owing to the availability of cost-effective substitutes. Owing to low finances and budget constraints, small-scale businesses tend to substitute harmonic mitigation for other cost-effective technologies. Substitutes include low-cost filters, reactors, and transformers. While these alternatives provide partial harmonic filtering, however, low cost makes them more attractive.

COVID-19 Impact On Harmonic Filters Market

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the harmonic filter market. Nationwide lockdown and trade restrictions implemented to contain the spread of the virus resulted in supply chain disruption and reduction in market supply. furthermore, disruption in the end-users industries also impacted the market.
