Automotive Filters Market Trends

Creating laws to reduce glasshouse gas emissions in order to accelerate market growth

The creation of rules to limit glasshouse gas emissions is driving the market CAGR for Automotive Filters. Regulations governing glasshouse gas emissions have been implemented during the last few decades in response to increased environmental concerns and efforts to reduce glasshouse emissions. To monitor particle emissions, governments around the world have set automobile emission regulations. Current emission laws in use include the United States' Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard, the European Union's Euro emission standards, and Japan's long-term emission limits. Air filters are also used to minimise pollution produced by autos. Air filters use a certain type of filtering media, such as cloth or sintered metal, to trap and remove dry particles and contaminants such as germs, dust, and pollen from the air passing through them.

Increased environmental concerns and severe emission standards are driving the market CAGR for automobile filter industry forwards. Automotive filters aid to improve fuel efficiency while also lowering pollutants and glasshouse gas emissions. According to a survey published by the US-based online journal Our World in Data, passenger travel (cars, motorcycles, and buses) would account for 60% of road transport emissions in 2020, with road freight (lorries and trucks) accounting for the remaining 40%. In response to rising glasshouse gas emissions, the government has enacted stringent emission regulations.

For instance, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a US-based government agency, published new national glasshouse gas (GHG) emissions regulations for passenger vehicles and light trucks in December 2021, for model years 2022-2032. The final standards would result in significant reductions in GHG emissions as well as other criteria pollutants. As a result, rising environmental concerns and stringent emission standards will drive the vehicle filter market forwards.

Automotive Filters Type Insights

The Automotive Filters Market segmentation, based on type includes fuel filter, air filter, oil filter, emission filter. The oil filter category has largest market share. The oil filter maintains continuous oil flow and eliminates particles (dirt, oxidised oil, metallic particles) that may occur in the motor oil due to engine wear. It cleans the motor oil so that it can do its job more effectively. An oil filter has adequate contaminant-holding capacity to keep working until the next oil change.

Automotive Filters Sales Insights

The Automotive Filters Market segmentation, based on sales, includes OEM, IAM, OES, aftermarket. In 2022, the OEM category is expected to dominate the automotive air filters market. The sales of Air Filter Automotive by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are closely tied to global production of passenger automobiles, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. The increase in global demand for automobiles is the key driver driving the growth of the OEM end-use category throughout the forecast period. Global players are investing in the acquisition of high-quality air filters to improve vehicle fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. Because of the increased demand for high-end car items, OEMs often use a distinct sales channel. The aforementioned factors will almost certainly cause the end-use segment to grow.
