Polyurethane in Automotive Filter Market

Addressing Efficiency Concerns in Automotive, Innovative Air Filters to Push the Sales for Polyurethane Filters

Considering the rapid industrialization and its significant impact of the rising air pollution levels, researchers have recently developed a novel air filter- a polyurethane fiber mat, addressing major concerns pertaining to pressure drop and filtration efficiency in automotive.

To enhance filtration efficiency and pressure drop effects, the researchers developed the nanofiber-based double layered air filter using mass production electrospinning, in varying concentrations of thermoplastic polyurethane.

The results of the study indicates that nanofiber-based air filters with improved filtration performance can be achieved by adjusting the polymer application and electrospinning performing condition.

New emerging studies pertaining to the use of polyurethane in automotive filters are projected to gather much prominence in the coming years to responding to filtration efficiency needs in light and heavy vehicles.

Stringency in Air Filter Standards Influencing Demand for Polyurethane Filters

In a bid to reduce the concentration of suspended air particles from vehicles, engine and component manufacturers of emerging nations are following suit of developed countries and increasingly incorporating advanced and effective filters.

Polyurethane has emerged as a viable alternative owing to its open cell structure, resulting in lesser shape alternation while offering better compression sets.

Polyurethane in automotive filters are being increasingly preferred over conventional variants on account of their low curing temperatures.

The manufacture focus on increasing longevity and reducing total costs can also be addressed using polyurethane.

Growing Penetration of Electric Vehicles Poses Tough Questions for Long-term Sustainability of Components Industry

The status quo that has long existed with the dominance of internal combustion engines (ICE) and the power belonging to OEMs, component manufacturers, and raw material providers, is expected to change in a significant way with the emergence of electric vehicles.

Challenging the incumbents, the transformation from internal combustion engines to electric motors, will not just have an impact on the vehicle Bill of Materials (BOM), but will also result in drastic materials shifts.

As the automotive industry witnesses the outgoing of powertrain components and most importantly, IC engines, use of polyurethane in engine filters is projected to dramatically reduce, changing the overall auto landscape.

Compliance to Ever-Evolving To Regulations A Challenge/Opportunity for Air Filter Designers

Growing environmental concerns coupled with stringent regulations demanding more efficient combustion from automotive engine manufacturers, is pushing for high-performance air filters to not only protect the health of passengers, but also that of pedestrians.

Pedestrian protection regulations guiding component makers to develop air filters to fit in compact engine spaces is a challenge, but also an opportunity for parts manufacturers.

Pedestrian safety regulations, implemented in European Union, has urged the component makers to design softer vehicle front and strategically placed components within the bonnet, including a minimum distance between the air filter housing and bonnet.

Moreover, regulations pushing for engine management systems to be entirely placed on air filter housing posed more design challenges for component makers.
