An automotive air filter helps extend engine life, as it competently traps dirt and debris that damages the internal parts of an engine such as pistons and cylinders. Engine damage can occur even by a small particle of soil, which may lead to costly repairs. Automotive air filters enable proper air flow to the engine, thus maintaining the air-fuel mixture. They help enhance the emission control system and minimalize ignition problems in the spark plug, which can give rise to serious drivability issues. Proper air flow enables the engine to function perfectly, thereby reducing fuel consumption as well as emissions. These factors are likely to drive the demand for automotive air filters considerably during the forecast period.

Expansion of the global air filter market for automotive can be accredited to the rapid expansion of the automotive industry, constant expansion of vehicle fleet size, rising sales of passenger cars as well as rise in purchasing power of consumers. This rise in demand is estimated to increase in the near future, thereby augmenting the expansion of the air filters market for automotive. Recent decline in the environmental conditions in some regions have raised serious concerns about the environment. Emission from vehicles leads to the production of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, which reduce the quality of the environment. Regulatory bodies are imposing stringent norms on carbon emissions of automotive in order to reduce the carbon emission from automobiles. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the air filter market for automotive. However, regular replacement and its maintenance and introduction of electric vehicles in certain regions are likely to hamper the air filter market during the forecast period. The global air filter market for automotive is expected to expand at a CAGR of more than 3.5% between 2018 and 2026.
