Automotive filters help in prolonging engine life by trapping dirt and debris that have harmful effects on engine components such as pistons and cylinders. Filters help to reduce emission and fuel consumption through maintaining the appropriate air-fuel mixture. They also help to enhance emission control system and minimize spark plug ignition issues.
Automotive filter market is segmented into air filter, fuel filter and oil filter. Air filters are made up of fibrous materials that restrict the entry of unwanted particles in a vehicle. Depending upon its purpose, air filters can be of two types namely intake air filters and cabin air filters. Intake air filters are used for the purpose of restricting solid particles from entering into a vehicular engine. Intake air filters can again be segmented into cellulose and synthetic air filters. The purpose of cabin air filters is to prevent the entry of exhaust fumes, dust and unpleasant odor into vehicle through heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. These filters are further segmented into particle carbon and activated carbon cabin air filters.
Oil and fuel filters are important components in a vehicle and they dominate the overall automotive filter market. Demand for oil and fuel filters is always high, owing to their frequent replacements. The oil filter is used to remove contaminants from engine oil in an internal combustion engine. However, purpose of fuel filter is to clean the fuel before it hits the injector.
Stringent emission regulations along with increasing vehicle production are the major contributors to the filters market growth. In addition, emerging trends such as use of organic materials, development of polyurethane-bases adhesive filters and customizable air filter concept are impacting positively to the growth of the filter industry.
