Automotive Filters Market Size was valued at USD 20.38 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 27.05 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 3.6% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

The engine of a car will have a longer life span if it is equipped with an automotive filter since it will allow for a more efficient operation of the engine. The primary objective of the filters is to get rid of solid dirt particles such as dust, pollen, and other undesired air particles that have an effect on the overall performance of the vehicle in addition to lowering its fuel efficiency and carbon emission levels. Filters are used in vehicles to prevent dangerous impurities such as dirt, dust, and grit from entering the engine. Filters are used in automotive. Filters are a significant contributor to the overall improvement in the vehicle's fuel economy. In order to improve the overall efficiency of modern automobiles, each one is outfitted with a unique set of filters. Filters are utilized in motor vehicles for the purpose of improving the quality of the air, gasoline, emission exhaust, and oil. In addition to this, the cabin air is cleaned with an increased number of filters.

The global market for automobile filters has suffered as a result of the rapid spread of coronavirus around the globe as well as the imposed lockdown in several nations. Because of this, the supply chain has been disrupted, which has led to a halt in vehicle production around the world. However, producers who work in the automotive and transportation industries are beginning to recover from the losses that were incurred as a result of damaged ecosystems and a drop in sales of automobile vehicles. Manufacturers competing in the global market for automobile filters are concentrating their efforts on expanding their production capabilities in order to reap the financial rewards of doing so.


Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), Mahle GmbH (Germany), Mann+Hummel, Clarcor Inc. (Germany), ALCO filters (Germany), Lydall Inc. (Japan), Toyota Boshoku Corporation (Japan), ACDelco Inc. (U.S.), Cummins Inc. (U.S.), Denso Corporation (Japan), Hollingsworth & Vose Co. Inc. (U.S.), Donaldson Company Inc (U.S.) are some of the affluent competitors with significant market share in the Automotive Filters Market.


Market, By Filter Type:

The global market has been divided into Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Cabin Filter, Coolant Filter, and Others based on the filter type segment. The global market for air and fuel filters was dominated by this segment. An air filter purifies the air before it enters the engine for use in combustion. Prior to entering the engine, the fuel is cleaned by the fuel filter. Among the materials utilized in-car air filters are foam, paper, and cotton.

Market, By Media Type:

The global market has been divided into cellulose and synthetic Based on media type segment. Disposable oil filters are commonly made of cellulose filter material. Cleans up to 40% of the motor oil with a particle retention capacity of 8-10 microns. Changing these oil filters every 3,000 miles is recommended. Higher-quality oil filters employ synthetic media.

Market, By Vehicle Type:

The global market has been divided into passenger cars, LCV, and HCV based on the vehicle type segment. As the number of kilometers driven in each country continues to rise, the passenger vehicle segment is likely to drive filter demand at a significant rate during the projection period, due to the hub-spoke architecture of metropolitan cities and suburban areas. The rise of automotive filters can be attributed in part to the escalating production of passenger cars.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
