How growing aftermarket opportunities for market players led to encompass a notable share of market?
Filters are those components of a vehicle that need to replace after a certain period of time (half-yearly or annually) depending on their use. Unlike some of the other stationary automotive components, filters provide substantial aftermarket opportunities.
A shorter replacement cycle means that aftermarket opportunities are likely to remain important for market players. Moreover, growing vehicle across the world is expected to create broader polyurethane in automotive filter aftermarket opportunities in the near future. Automotive enthusiast are replacing their OEM filters aftermarket performance filters that deliver greater performance. This trend is likely to grow further during the assessment period. Also, stricter engine evaporative emission and exhaust particulate laws enacted by regulatory bodies have prompted the automobile manufacturers to conduct extensive research in to vehicle fluid and air induction systems.

How rising sales of automobile triggering the demand?
The global sales of automobile have remained favorable in recent years, with China and the United States topping the list both in terms of production and sales. As the U.S. economy steadily recovers, automotive industry in the country embraces an acceleration, particularly in the auto components vertical.
Meanwhile, China prepares to enter a maturity phase with a higher sensitivity towards macroeconomic implications. The emerging markets, including Mexico, Brazil and India are also under the spotlight. Growth of the economy in these countries has attracted a number globally renowned car manufacturers towards them. The demand for both commercial and passenger vehicles has grown significantly in these countries. The rising automotive production remains a major driver for the global automotive filters market. Filter manufacturers are improving product efficiency and reducing cost by utilizing new raw material combinations.
How growing popularity of electric vehicles likely to hamper the global sales of polyurethane in automotive filters?
As per the World Economic Forum (WEF), the global electric car stock surpassed 10 million vehicles in 2020. The filters have minimum application in electric cars. Governments are also improving public infrastructure to facilitate EV operations in transportation.
Electric cars do not require oil changes and fuel tanks, because there is no oil and fossil fuel used to run the engines. As an example, all-electric cars like Tesla Roadster and Nissan LEAF have no tailpipe, because no heat or gas is release when they are running. Hence use of filter is limited to purifying air inside the car. Limited scope of filter application in electric cars may have a negative impact on the sales of polyurethane in automotive filters in the forthcoming years.

Which region offers more whitespace in market across the globe?
The automotive industry in Europe is disrupted by political and economic factors such as Brexit and recent change in national leadership in several European countries. Increased competition manufacturers based in Asia and other regions is likely to lead to downsize of the overall domestic automobiles and component production in Europe.
In recent years, electric vehicles have witnessed an improved market share in the region, because of their rising sales. Many of the governments in the region are promoting the use of vehicles that have minimum or zero carbon emission. Manufacturers continue to seek for raw materials that are more sustainable and cost-effective as fierce competition is keeping prices up (and therefore profits) down. Meanwhile, use of PU remains sizable in Europe’s automotive industry. As per ISOPA, the annual value of vehicle components based on PU produced in the EU is about USD 45 Billion.
