Automotive Filters Market to 2027 by Type (Fuel Filter, Engine Oil Filter, Engine Air Filter, Cabin Air Filter, Coolant Air Filter, and Steering Oil Filter); Vehicle Type (Passenger Car, Light Commercial Vehicle, and Heavy Commercial Vehicle)

Market Overview:

The automotive filters market was valued at US$ 3570.0 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2019 to 2027 to reach US$ 5383.8 Mn by 2027. The automotive filters are designed and developed to prevent the entry of dirt particles such as bacteria, exhaust fumes, pollens, and others into the engine and carburetor. The use of these filters further minimizes the air pollutants that are emitted by the vehicles, thus, extends the service life of the vehicle, and reduces the maintenance cost. The government and emission bodies around the world have imposed stringent emission laws for the vehicles that emit hazardous gases such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and others. For instance, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. has amended standards such as fuel economy standards for the LCVs and national program for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). In addition, drivers, in today’s time, feel the impact of increasing oil prices every day at the pump, due to which the gasoline is becoming considerably expensive and the call for effective solutions for reducing fuel consumption is growing stronger. Some of the leading filter manufacturers have developed unique and wide-ranging seal-based solution for emissions reduction in utility vehicles and passenger. For instance, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies SE & Co. KG has developed the Filtration Technologies that contribute to the effective reduction of CO2 emissions through its fully synthetic micronAir engine intake air filters that help in protecting valuable resources. Thus, this in turn, is boosting the growth of automotive filters market.
