Global Automotive Cabin Air Filter Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Cabin Air Filter

Cabin air filter is a replaceable filter that cleans the air that flows inside the passenger cabin through HVAC systems. Most of the modern vehicles have this filter, and they need to be changed every 15,000 to 20,000 miles. If the filters are not changed or cleaned, then it results in lesser air flow, excess moisture, and ineffective heating and cooling. Cabin air filter increases the passengers' comfort by blocking irritants like pollen, diesel/petrol smell, and pollutants. It is helpful for people with allergies and other sensitivities to airborne agents

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive cabin air filter market to grow at a CAGR of 4.23% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Cabin Air Filter Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive cabin air filter market: Bosch, DENSO, K&N Engineering, MAHLE, and MANN+HUMMEL.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACDelco, Ahlstrom, ALCO Filters, Baldwin Filters, Donaldson Filtration Solution, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies, Hastings Premium Filters, Hengst, Lydall, Luber-finer, Momentum USA, Scania, and Sogefi Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Introduction of washable cabin air filters. Cabin air filters are recommended to be replaced every 15,000 to 20,000 miles. This becomes a tedious job if the vehicles are used for long distance travels or constant short distance travels. Some vendors have introduced washable cabin air filters with multilayer filtration. This makes it almost maintenance-free as removing the cabin filter, cleaning it, and putting it back can be done easily by any individual.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing demand for passenger cars. Sales of HVAC systems is directly proportional to the sales of passenger cars. Cabin air filter is an important component of HVAC systems as it filters the air that enters the cabin to provide ambient conditions for the passengers. In 2016, global car sales increased by 3%, which was mostly contributed by the sales of SUVs and crossovers in China and European countries.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High competition leading to cost pressures on smaller vendors. The automotive cabin air filter market is highly fragmented with just 50% contribution from the five major vendors. The existence of many players reduces the profit margins significantly. Furthermore, the market is highly price sensitive due to the presence of small vendors across the globe. The only way to survive is to innovate and provide quality products at a competitive price. Heightened competition is forcing vendors to come up with innovative product lines, both in basic and premium segments. Due to the abundance of choices in this segment, the risks of failure are high.
