Market Overview

The global automotive fuel filter market is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 5.3% during the forecast period (2020 – 2025).

  • Automobile engines around the world have become very sophisticated and advanced in recent years. These engines have a low tolerance level for low and irregular quality fuel. The high quality of oil fuel filters is thus, required to ensure the smooth running of the engine.
  • Automotive fuel filters play a very important role in controlling emissions. The governmental agencies around the world have become very vigilant with regard to adherence to emission norms and this has boosted the fuel filters market. Due to alarming pollution levels in cities, emission norms, especially in emerging markets, such as India and China, are being upgraded at a high rate. 
  • The growing technological advancement are also driving the fuel filter market growth. The demand for in-tank fuel filter is growing they are more efficient. This technology delivers better engine performance due to maintaining a high flow, while still protecting against contamination from dirty fuel. These filters are more reliable, due to longer life and helps avoid towing call-outs and breakdowns. In-tank filters have consistent flow rate with low-pressure drop, which prevents clogging and damage to injectors, and avoids premature engine wear.
