Rising purchasing power, improved infrastructure, and discerning customer tastes and preferences are driving the APAC automobile market and this directly stimulates the APAC automotive filters market. Global OEM’s are setting up manufacturing units in this key strategic region because of its huge population and need for personal mobility. In addition, regional governmental authorities have done away with scrap incentive schemes that all but force customers to purchase new automobiles. Major component manufacturers are also shifting their production units from developed to developing countries to take advantage of cheaper labor and economies of scale, therefore reducing the cost of production and increasing their profit margins. China, Thailand, and India are the production hubs for a number of multinational automobile companies such as Honda, Toyota, General Motors, and Nissan.
Rampant piracy a massive challenge in the APAC automotive filters market
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has called counterfeiting ‘the crime of the 21st century’. The region most affected with counterfeit products is Asia Pacific and this is mainly due to the price sensitivity of most customers. Counterfeit parts can be nearly 40% cheaper than their original brethren and this will negatively impact the growth of the APAC automotive filters market. As per the ACMA President, a lack of mandatory safety regulations for the checking of automotive components is aiding the growth of the thriving gray market.
