Last Updated: July 01, 2024 | Format: PDF | Report ID: FBI108035



North America is the second largest region in the global automotive air filter market. North America automotive air filters market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% 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.

The rapid adoption of the latest technologies in the automotive sector, and increased demand for vehicles, especially passenger cars, resulted in the higher installation of automotive air filters. Furthermore, growing awareness among consumers regarding the importance of air filters for purified air inside passenger cabins is expected to grow.

In addition, stringent government regulation to curb emission levels, especially from the automotive sector, owing to rising pollution levels, has highlighted the importance of using air filters in vehicles in recent periods. For instance, in January 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a program to further reduce air pollution from heavy-duty engines and vehicles across the U.S. The final program includes new, more stringent emission standards that cover a wider range of heavy-duty engine vehicles. Automotive air filters help remove the emission of harmful airborne particles and improve engine performance. Increasing environmental concerns and maximum engine utilization by the end-user are propelling the market demand.


Growing Demand for the Multi-Filtration System to Propel Market Growth

Rapid investment in R&D activities to enhance occupants' comfort and improve engine performance drives the regional market growth. OEMs and aftermarket service providers offer a multi-filtration system to remove the incoming air of impurities, including particles, pollen, and dust. The multi-filter system also uses active charcoal to eliminate odors, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and ground-level ozone from the incoming air. For instance, in November 2019, WIX Filters introduced a new XP cabin air filter, a newly-designed filter built with premium Pur-Air technology and multi-layer protection that enable passengers & drivers to breathe cleaner air.


Increasing Sales of Commercial Vehicles will Boost Market Growth

Rising commercial vehicle sales due to the rise in construction projects, trading, and expansion of the logistics sector are anticipated to propel the installation of automotive air filters over the forecast period. As per the OICA report, commercial vehicle sales in Canada accounted for 1,384,245, while the U.S.  Accounted for 12,058,515. The upward trend in sales of commercial vehicles, in turn, will provide an impetus to the North America’s market growth.

Moreover, new product launches by OEMs are further augmenting the market growth. For instance, in March 2021, Paccar Parts, an American company, launched new Paccar Genuine air filters to its line of filtration products for medium and heavy-duty engines. The new filter provides 55% additional filter life and is designed to provide enhanced filter life resulting in less frequent filter changes and cost savings to customers. They also provide higher efficiency and better engine protection.


Shift Towards Washable/Non-Replicable Air Filters to Restrain Market Growth

A major factor expected to hinder the growth of the air filter market is the growing usage of washable/non-replaceable air filters. Non-replaceable filters can be cleaned easily and used longer, lowering the maintenance costs for a vehicle owner. As these filters' replacement rate is less than conventional air filters, the sale of overall air filters is affected in the aftermarket. For instance, the K&N engine air filters are designed to be reusable, washable, and last for the life of a vehicle.


In terms of competitive landscape, K&N Engineering Inc., Donaldson Company, and Cummins are the key players in the North America market, owing to strong product offerings, and active involvement in R&D investments for the acceleration of product launches and approvals in the forecast period.

Other prominent players, such as Panasonic, Mann+Hummel GmbH, Donaldson Company, Inc., Robert Bosch GmbH, and Lydall Inc., are also leading the market due to their strong distribution network and diverse product portfolio. These companies focus on strengthening their product portfolio and distribution network through strategic collaboration and partnerships to increase their part in North America automotive air filters market share.

  • July 2021: Ford launched certified cabin air filters, Ford Refresh95, and announced its plan to cover most of its lineup by the end of 2023. The Refresh95 certified air filter is designed to remove at least 95 per cent of 2.5-micron size organic material, traffic exhaust, metals and road dust particles.
