Last Updated: May 27, 2024 | Format: PDF | Report ID: FBI108037



Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing region in the global automotive market. Asia Pacific automotive air filters market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. The global market for automotive air filters is projected to grow from USD 5.15 billion in 2022 to USD 8.72 billion by 2030.

Increasing vehicle sales will increase demand for air filters in countries such as China, South Korea and India. As per the OICA report, passenger cars reported sales of over 3.6 million in India, 21.4 million in China, and 3.2 million in South Korea. The upward trend of passenger car sales will directly increase the sales of automotive air filters across the region. Moreover, rising awareness related to efficient vehicle performance, the importance of replacing air filters for passengers' comfort, and improved fuel economy are driving the Asia Pacific automotive air filters market growth. 


Growing Demand for Advanced Air Filters with Synthetic Fiber to propel the Market Growth

OEMs are taking various steps to offer their customers ever-improving air quality inside vehicles through cutting-edge air purification technologies to help people breathe cleaner air. For instance, in May 2022, Volvo Cars introduced its latest air purification technology, the Advanced Air Cleaner, for its new 90 and 60-series models. The Advanced Air Cleaner has been certified asthma-allergy friendly by Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), designed to remove up to 99.9% of grass and weed pollen allergens from incoming air.


Rapid Uptick in Investment by foreign OEMs is anticipated to Propel Market Growth

The sharp uptick in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the automotive sector in countries including India, China, and Japan will drive the market growth of automotive air filters in the region. For instance, the automobile sector in India attracted USD 4.9 billion of FDI in the fiscal year 2022.

Similarly, the improvement in industrial capabilities in China has been augmented through several joint ventures between the state-owned Chinese organizations and the U.S., Japanese, German and South Korean brands. Companies, including Honda, VW, GM, Toyota, Nissan, Buick, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, and Daimler-Benz, manufacture locally in China with a local partner.

With the growth of local manufacturing capabilities, aftermarket services, and technical know-how, home-grown Chinese brands emerged as a global export market. This will accelerate the deployment of these filters across the region.


Growing Trade Tension between China and the U.S. Impacts the Automobile Sector 

The slowdown in production and sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles owing to the trade tension between two major economies, China and the U.S., in tandem with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, has impacted the automotive industry. For instance, China increased the tariffs on U.S. manufactured automobiles from 15% to 40% in retaliation to U.S. tariffs. The rise in tariff rates and quotes will limit the growth of the automotive sector, which might restrain the market growth.
