What are the Recent Trends Impacting the Automotive Filters Market?

“Advancements in Filter/Media Technology”

A filter media is the main component of a filter. Its purpose is to collect any undesirable or alien particles. Depending on the application, it is mostly composed of cellulose, glass fiber, synthetic, and activated carbon. In the years ahead, advancements in filter media types or technology will provide a tremendous potential for vehicle filter manufacturers. Cabin filters are currently available to prevent dust particles from entering the car. Typically dust filters capture 95-99% of particles 1-3 microns in size. However, there will be a mass market for odour and dust filters in the coming years. The odour and dust filters have an activated charcoal or baking soda layer to absorb odours and air pollutants.

Most car air intake filters are now constructed of cellulose medium, which is very cost-effective. Synthetic media types, on the other hand, are gaining popularity and will have a sizable market share in the future, owing to their numerous advantages over cellulose media. Synthetic media, for example, have a greater flow area, higher performance, and are less susceptible to water. These filters can be utilized to improve combustion airflow, resulting in increased fuel efficiency and lower emissions. MANN+HUMMEL, for example, is focused on the creation of synthetic ultra-fine fibre media with excellent separation efficiency, which is projected to extend filter service life.
