How growing aftermarket opportunities for market players led to encompass a notable share of market?

Filters are automotive components that must be replaced after a set amount of time (half-yearly or annually) depending on their use. Unlike certain other stationary automobile components, filters provide significant aftermarket options.

Because of the shorter replacement cycle, aftermarket prospects are likely to remain crucial for industry participants. Furthermore, increasing vehicle production around the world is likely to open up more fuel filters in automotive filter aftermarket prospects in the near future.

Aftermarket performance filters that outperform OEM filters are being used by automotive enthusiasts to replace their OEM filters. This pattern is anticipated to continue during the assessment period. Furthermore, higher engine evaporative emission and exhaust particulate rules implemented by regulatory authorities have encouraged automakers to invest substantial research into vehicle fluid and air induction systems.

How Increasing Sales of Automobile Activating the Demand?

In recent years, global automotive sales have remained favorable, with the United States and China leading the charts in terms of both sales and production. As the U.S. economy progressively recovers, the country's automotive sector accelerates, notably in the auto components vertical.

However, China is going to enter a maturity period in which it will be more sensitive to macroeconomic consequences. Emerging markets such as Brazil, Mexico, and India are also being examined.

Moreover, the expansion of these countries' economies has lured a number of globally known automotive manufacturers to them. The vehicle demand has from both passenger and commercial increased dramatically in these countries.

Further, growing automotive production continues to be a primary driving force in the worldwide automotive filters market. By adopting innovative raw material combinations, filter producers are boosting production efficiency and lowering costs.

How Increasing Admiration of Electric Vehicles likely to Hamper the Global Sales of Fuel Filters in Automotive Filter Industry?

In electric vehicles, the filters are used to a limited extent. Governments are also strengthening public infrastructure to make EV operations in transportation more convenient.

Since there is no oil or fossil fuel used to power the engines, electric automobiles do not require oil changes or fuel tanks. All-electric vehicles, such as the Roadster, Tesla and Nissan LEAF, do not have tailpipes because no heat or gas is emitted while they are functioning. As a result, the filter's use is limited to purifying the fuel within the car. The limited scope of filter application in electric vehicles may have a detrimental impact on fuel filter sales in automotive filters in the next years.
