Sales Analysis of Automotive Filters from 2016-2020 Vs Outlook 2021-2031

According to Fact.MR, the global market for automotive filters expanded at a steady pace, clocking a CAGR of over 3% from 2016 to 2020. Toughening standards on vehicular emissions has prompted this increase in sales across the historical period.

A general contraction in the global automotive industry since 2019 coupled with the outbreak of COVID-19 restricted growth prospects to a significant extent. The International Association of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers reported a decline of more than 5% in global automotive production in 2019. Imposition of lockdowns in H1 2020 further stalled prospects. However, since H2 2020, prospects showed a gradual resurgence as lockdowns began to be lifted.

However, the automotive market is poised to pick up acceleration after the economic downturn, supported by the latest advancements and hefty investments in the filters industry. It is projected to surpass the market worth of US$ 27 Bn by 2031.

How are Stringent Automotive Standards Prompting Automotive Filters Usage?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. has amended standards such as fuel economy standards for LCVs and the national program for greenhouse gas emissions for light-duty vehicles. Such regulations are analysed to drive the market in the forecast period 2021-2031.

Mounting concerns of vehicle owners about cautionary maintenance is one of the prominent demand drivers. Additionally rising average lifespan of vehicles, and surging miles driven per vehicle are expected to drive the growth of the global automotive filter market in the upcoming future.

Maintenance of the engine with regards to miles driven has furthered the drift of reducing vehicle downtime and long-term operating costs, which is projected to gain further traction in the years ahead, thereby rolling the growth of the global automotive filters market over the forecast period.
