Passenger cars with manual transmission systems hold prominent share in regions such as Europe and Asia Pacific. In India and China, the share of manual transmission cars account for three-fourth and one-half of total passenger cars, respectively. The installation rate of automotive transmission oil filters is less in case of passenger cars with manual transmission as compared to those with automatic transmission, CVT, or DCT.

However, owing to stringent government norms, the installation rate of transmission filters in manual transmission vehicles has increased in recent years. This can be attributed to increasing efforts towards reduction of CO2 emissions, reliable & long-lasting operation, and higher fuel efficiency in vehicles.

Automotive transmission oil filters are replaced with every change in transmission fluid. These factors are anticipated to contribute towards the growth of the automotive transmission oil filter market during the forecast period.

Use of Nonwoven Composites for Filter Manufacturing

Filter media plays a significant role in the replacement frequency of any filter. Most of the filter media used in fuel and oil filtration are manufactured by wet-laid processes using cellulosic fibers. Filter media manufacturers have developed unique fiber and processing combinations to improve automotive oil and fuel filtration efficiency.

Stringent environmental regulations and the need for longer replacement intervals of filters have propelled the use of nonwoven filter media or nonwoven composites in oil and fuel filters for the transportation industry.

Nonwoven materials have properties such as lightweight nature, advanced insulation as well as resistance to extreme temperature. These materials contribute towards making transmission long-lasting, along with cost effectiveness and sustainability.

Manufacturers in the automotive transmission oil filter market are using nonwoven composites, which provide superior strength, abrasion resistance, flame-resistance, acoustic insulation, and easy moldability.
