Europe Automotive Air Filters Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Light Commercial Vehicles, and Heavy Commercial Vehicles), By Product Type (Air Intake Filters and Cabin Air Filters), By End-User (OEM and Aftermarket) and Regional Forecast, 2023– 2030

Last Updated: July 01, 2024 | Format: PDF | Report ID: FBI108033



Europe automotive air filter market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% 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.

Europe is the leading producer of automobiles and automotive parts. Growing sales of luxury passenger cars and stringent government regulations to control carbon emission levels to safeguard the environment and public health will drive the demand for automotive air filters across the region. For instance, in November 2022, the European Commission proposed a reduction of air pollution levels from new vehicles sold in the region to meet the European Green Deal’s zero-pollution target.

New air filter launches by OEMs to expand their customer base are anticipated to propel the market growth in the European market. For instance, in August 2020, Land Rover launched a new cabin air system to block harmful emissions from its 4x4s models. The new technology is designed to filter out harmful air particulates. The new cabin air purification system purifies and recirculates air to keep occupants healthy on the road.


Growing Demand for High-Performance Air Filters

To ensure optimal engine performance, OEMs in automotive air filters focus on providing new and advanced air filtration products with improved particulate-capturing efficiency. For instance, in May 2022, Volvo cars introduced cutting-edge air purification technology to improve air quality inside their cars to help occupants breathe cleaner air. Similarly, in August 2020, MAHLE developed two standardized air filter solutions for fuel cells. The new MAHLE air filters for cells with an output of 25–50 kW or 80–120 kW are designed to protect fuel cells from harmful gases and particles.


Growing Demand for Luxury Vehicles will Propel Market Growth

The growing demand for high-end vehicles & passenger cars and the presence of well-established OEMs in the U.K., Germany, and Italy are the major factors driving the Europe automotive air filters market growth. The OICA report shows over 14 million passenger cars were sold in Europe in 2021. The steady growth in the demand for passenger cars is creating ample opportunities for OEMs and aftermarket players to expand their revenue stream. For instance, in September 2022, Bosch introduced a cabin filter range, Bosch Filter+pro. This range was designed to remove pollen, fine particulates, allergens, harmful gases, bacteria, viruses and mold.

The company has been continuously expanding its portfolio of cabin filters for the aftermarket. It now covers 93% of all hybrid and EVs and 96% of all European passenger cars.


Rising Adoption of EVs May Restrain the Growth of Automotive Air Filters

The rapid adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) in European countries is owing to stringent government regulations to control emission levels and achieve CO2 neutrality by 2050. Lower maintenance & ownership costs, rising fuel prices, and supportive government regulations to boost EV sales in European countries are driving its sales. The higher EV sales, in turn, will negatively impact the demand for engine air filters. Hence, the growing EV sales are predicted to hamper the market size of engine air filters over the forecast period.


In terms of competitive landscape, Mann+Hummel GmbH, Bosch, Hengst SE, MAHLE, and Ahlstrom Corporation are the key players in the Europe market, owing to strong product offerings, active involvement in R&D investments for the acceleration of product launches and approvals in the forecast period.

Other prominent players, such as Cummins, and K&N Engineering, Inc., are also leading the market due to their strong distribution network and diverse product portfolio. These companies are focused on strengthening their product portfolio and distribution network through strategic collaboration and partnerships to increase their part in the Europe automotive air filters market share.



  • September 2021: UFI launched its new cabin air filter range, ARGENTIUM. The new range air filter, ARGENTIUM, complemented the company’s 307 anti-pollen and 177 activated carbon cabin air filter aftermarket ranges.

  • December 2020: MANN-FILTER introduced a new cabin air filter by eliminating harmful virus and particulates from the outside air drawn into the car. The new cabin air filter has several layers and fully adsorbs unpleasant odours and harmful gases like ozone and nitrogen oxide from the airflow.
