By | March 14, 2023
Automotive Filter Market

According to a report by TechSci Research titled “Automotive Filter Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027,” the global automotive filter market experienced a value of USD 48,396.65 million in 2021. It is anticipated that the market will grow at a CAGR of 3.82% during the forecast period and reach USD 60,148.69 million in 2027. This growth is primarily due to the increasing demand for automotive filters that are lightweight, fuel-efficient, and compact-sized. Moreover, the demand for automotive filters is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

The automotive filter market is segmented based on various factors such as vehicle type, filter type, application, media, demand category, and region. An automotive filter typically comprises three segments, namely fuel filter, oil filter, and air filter, which are used to capture any debasements that may directly affect the engine’s wear and tear. Dust or contaminants in the air can cause such debasements. The oil filter is used to filter out impurities from the oil and prevent engine components from getting damaged. This enhances engine performance and increases its lifespan. The fuel and gas used in internal combustion should be free of any debasements to improve mileage and power. Even a tiny dust particle can adversely affect engine performance. The air filter is divided into two sub-segments, namely cabin air filter and engine air filter. The cabin air filter removes pollen, dust, and airborne particles that enter the cabin through the ventilation, air conditioning, or heating system.

The majority share of the automotive filter market is captured by the Asia-Pacific region, which accounts for more than 50% of the overall market.

The market further divides into different vehicle types, including passenger cars, two-wheelers, light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, and off-the-road vehicles. In 2021, passenger cars held the largest market share of 49.45%, followed by two-wheelers with a market share of 26.01%. Due to their high sales volume, the demand for filters during passenger car manufacturing is greater than for any other vehicle type. These cars are primarily used for daily activities such as commuting, shopping, and travel, resulting in a high demand for air filters that need replacement every six to twelve months. Additionally, people are increasingly concerned about air pollution, leading governments to take initiatives to reduce pollutants released by cars. Consequently, the filter media segment is expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period due to rising research and development.

The market is also segmented based on application into cabin filters and engine filters. In 2021, the majority of automotive filters sold were for engine air filters, which include oil, fuel, and air filters. Engine filter application commanded a substantial share of 82.63% in the global automotive filter market in 2021.

In terms of region, the market is divided into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, the Middle East, and Africa. The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global automotive filter market, with China holding a market share of 54.76% in 2021.
