Blocking pollen, dust and particulate matter from vehicle exhaust from entering the car, automotive cabin air filter is being increasingly used in vehicles. Cabin air filter manufacturers are focusing on research and development of air filters using new material and advanced technology providing better filtration. Manufacturers are also developing charcoal lined cabin air filter. The air filter includes activated carbon that prevents odors and helps to reduce oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide from entering the car. Cabin air filters with small fibers facilitating better protection by trapping a large amount of ultrafine particles are also on a rise. Increasing number of replacement of automotive cabin air filter is driving the demand for new filters. Although replacement varies by manufacturers, general guidelines suggest replacing the air filter in every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. Development of customizable and polyurethane-based adhesive filters are also witnessing growth among manufacturers.
According to a study by Fact.MR, the global automotive cabin air filter market is expected to experience robust growth, registering 6.1% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2022. Owing to the increased pollution and airborne pollutants entering the vehicle through Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, increasing number of vehicles are integrating cabin air filters. Moreover, the rise in vehicle production across the globe is also driving the demand for automotive cabin air filter. Following insights show how the global automotive cabin air filter market will perform in the next five years.
