The global automotive cabin AC filter market was valued at US$ 2,070.3 Mn in 2015 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.9% in terms of value over the forecast period (2016–2024). Automotive cabin AC filter is a component that filters out harmful airborne particles such as dust, exhaust particles, and also foul odor from entering the automobile cabin environment through heat and ventilation systems.
The filter maintains the quality of air within the cabin of the vehicle. The automotive filter products market is anticipated to register stable growth during the forecast period, owing to a sustained growth in the automotive industry.
Steady rise in vehicle production around the globe and the rising adoption of automotive cabin AC filters to filter out pollutants and dust particles is expected to drive the growth of the global automotive cabin AC filter market over the forecast period.
The HVAC system of automobiles does not filter air present outside the vehicle, which is often largely contaminated with impurities ranging from biological to chemical such as pollen, microorganisms, dust, suspended chemicals, and exhaust particles. This is directly circulated inside the cabin of a vehicle and gets trapped inside the vehicle leading to increased concentration of hazardous contaminants in the cabin. This has necessitated the use of cabin AC filters in all vehicles.
Lack of consumer awareness about cabin AC filters is likely to hamper sustained growth of the global automotive cabin AC filter market. One of the major trends in the automotive cabin AC filter market is integration and customization of cabin AC filters. Another trend that has been observed in this market is the increasing number of collaborations and mergers by leading market players to improve their overall market share and increase customer base.
