Diesel particulate filters, often known as DPFs, are devices that are used to collect diesel particulates and prevent the emissions of such particulates into the atmosphere. A DPF's particle deposition technique is suitable for controlling the diesel particulate's solid proportion. Emissions of black smoke and elemental carbon are included. Filtration mechanism approaches such as inertial deposition, diffusional deposition, and flow line interception are used to collect particle emissions in DPFs. Thermal regeneration removes the gathered particles on a continuous or periodic basis. In terms of solid particulate emissions, the DPF is extremely effective. In the case of SOF and sulfate particulates, however, it will show limited or complete ineffectiveness when dealing with liquid portions of particulate emissions.

Diesel Particulate Filter Market Revenue Graph

In 2021, BorgWarner is a significant player in the market for diesel particulate filters and is an American firm. It has put a significant number of resources into research and development in order to create a new generation of diesel particle filters. The sensor is one of these components. This enables vehicles to detect when there is an increase in the number of emissions being produced. After that, the filters remove any surplus particulates from the air. The end effect is cleaner air and a more environmentally friendly setting.

It was in March of 2020 that COVID-19 made its global debut. In order to protect themselves and their citizens against this virus, the governments of the world took action. Lockdowns and quarantines were used to achieve this goal. After a few months of recovery from COVID-19, patients who had recovered could be reinjected with a more virulent strain of the disease. Particularly if they didn't show many symptoms the first time, this was the case. Diesel particle filters were negatively impacted by this as the raw materials needed to build these filters were halted. Consequently, the cost of producing these filters rose significantly due to this development. Higher retail prices were passed on to customers as a result of this increased expense. This slowed the market's growth for a short period of time because total sales were down. Consumers resented paying more for products when there were lower-cost alternatives available.


Delphi (US), Tenneco Inc. (US), NGK Insulators, LTD. (Japan), Faurecia (France), Johnson Matthey (UK), BASF (Germany), Bosal International (Belgium), MANN+HUMMEL (Germany), Denso (Japan), Donaldson Company Inc.

Diesel Particulate Filter Market Segment Chart


The Global Diesel Particulate Filter Market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World based on geographical analysis. DPF aftermarkets are currently smaller in the Asia Pacific compared to Europe and North America. A lack of rigorous pollution controls in the Asia Pacific region is to blame. Thus, there is little need for DPF at this time. Over the past two decades, India, South Korea, and China have seen a growth in the manufacture of diesel automobiles. In addition, China and India are the region's leading automobile manufacturers.

However, because of weak emission restrictions, they require only a little amount of DPF penetration. In both of these countries, the government has opted to impose strict emission rules. As a result, the Asia Pacific region is expected to see an increase in demand for DPF throughout the projected period. Replacement miles for DPF are substantially lower than for most other components, hence the aftermarket is expected to remain tiny.

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.
