Automotive Air Filter Market Analysis

The automotive air filter market was valued at USD 4,780.8 million and is expected to reach USD 6,967.4 million, registering a CAGR of 6.59% over the forecast period.

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe hampered the growth of the automotive air filter market in 2020. Major vehicle manufacturing and component manufacturing facilities were temporarily shut down. However, by the end of 2021, with a slight increase in vehicle sales, the market for air filters increased and is expected to continue growing over the forecast period.
  • The intake and cabin air filters are vital components of a vehicle. The intake air filter helps in the efficient working of the automobile's engine. The poor performance of the air filter may result in inefficient functioning and lead to more emissions. The cabin air filter plays an equally important role in the automobile. It prevents harmful pollutants from entering the passenger cabin, and its performance has a direct relation to passenger satisfaction and experience.
  • Air composition and quality vary widely worldwide and depend on environmental conditions like soil, dust, road conditions, traffic, and construction. The dust properties depend on the mineralogical composition and the percentage of quartz and corundum in the dust. These elements are harsh and are capable of damaging engine parts.
  • Quartz is prevalent worldwide and is considerably harder than most metals on automotive engines. Therefore, the air filter plays a crucial role in filtering quartz particles from the intake air. The air filter needs to adequately protect the motor against the direct intake of abrasive particles and road dust.
  • The growing automotive market, especially car sales, is driving the air filter market. Consumers have become more aware of the importance of air filters for purified air and staying isolated in their passenger cabins from the atmospheric dirt. Thus, this is expected to lead to the market's growth.

Increasing Demand For Commercial Vehicle Parts And Components to Derive Market Growth

  • As the sales of commercial vehicles increase, the demand for their parts and components also increases. The rise in commercial vehicle demand can be linked to increased construction and industrial activities and road freight transit. In 2022, Around 24 million commercial vehicles were sold. These vehicles include motor vehicles used for transporting goods or paying passengers. The shifting consumer preference for pick-up trucks that can transport both cargo and passengers is one of the reasons behind the growth.
  • Commercial vehicles like medium and heavy-duty trucks tend to cover more miles on average than passenger cars. Hence, they often require servicing. Even their part and component maintenance & replacement cycle is more frequent due to high distances traveled in a relatively short period.
  • According to Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), about 9.2 million motor vehicles will be produced in the United States in 2021, with 1.5 million being cars and 7.6 million being commercial vehicles, and this figure is expected to rise in the coming years.
  • Thus, as the number of commercial vehicles increases, so will the opportunity for automotive air filter manufacturers to generate revenue, facilitating overall market expansion.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Lead the Air Filter Market

  • The automobile industry in India is supported by various factors, such as the availability of skilled labor at a low cost, robust R&D centers, and low-cost steel production. The industry also provides great investment opportunities and direct and indirect employment to skilled and unskilled laborers.
  • China ranks first in terms of electric car sales, and many automakers are still in the process of testing electric mobility. The complete shift from internal-combustion (IC) engine vehicles to electric vehicles will take time, at least until 2030, which, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for cabin air filters.
  • Japan is regarded as one of the major markets for luxury cars in the Asia-Pacific region. Some of its most well-known global brands, which belong to the automotive industry, include Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.
  • These factors are expected to revive the automobile industry and boost the air filter market over the forecast period.
  • South Korea is among the most advanced automobile-producing countries in the global automotive market. However, the automobile industry in the country is suffering from an adverse domestic market, owing to a political fallout with China and the financial troubles faced by small- and medium-sized parts manufacturers.
  • To support the industry, the South Korean government has set high goals for its electric vehicle industry over the next ten years and is making heavy investments in both vehicles and the infrastructure necessary.
