Global Automotive High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter Market 2017-2021

About Automotive High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter

As per the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is a porous paper or non-woven fabric filter that uses capture and dispose technology to eliminate pollutants. The pollutants that are captured and disposed by this technology include submicron particulate matter (PM) >0.3 µm in aerodynamic diameter, and PM >0.12 µm for a chemically, biologically, or radioactively toxic; hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), mostly metals. HEPA filters are categorized based on the minimum collection efficiency, that is, 99.97% efficiency for the removal of 0.3-µm diameter or larger PM.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter market to grow at a CAGR of 23.55% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter market: APC Filtration, and Bosch.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Honeywell International, PHILIPS, and Sharp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is PECO air purification system. PECO air purification system is developed by Molekule. The PECO system disintegrates the pollutant by electrochemical reaction into harmless compounds. The process is performed by a catalytic reaction, which is initiated when light activates a nanoparticle-coated filter.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is availability of portable in-cabin HEPA purification system. The players like Sharp, PHILIPS, Honeywell International, and Molekule have taken the air purification business very seriously. Molekule has invented a product that uses PECO technology to purify the air, which uses light with high frequency to break down contaminating molecule to a harmless state. Sharp, PHILIPS, and LG Electronics have HEPA filtration products that can be connected to the battery of the vehicle. It has a lightweight energy efficient fan that sucks in air from one side and outlets filtered air from the other side. It takes about 15 minutes for the closed cabin to attain a level of 99.90% purified air (considering the entry of outside air is restricted).

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is HEPA filter is costlier than normal air filter cartridge. The HEPA filter for HVAC cartridge has an ASP of $24. The strict emission and safety regulation for the on-road vehicle validation is the base for many new innovations within the automotive industry and adaptation of the advanced technologies as a standard applicability. There is no direct regulation that indicates clearly on the use of the of HEPA filter for the cabin air purification. The technology is developed and exists in the aftermarket. The cost in the aftermarket is around $20 per cartridge for a paper-based HEPA filter and increases as the application grows toward the premium and luxury vehicle segments. Refusing it as a standard fitment by OEMs and its high market price will become an issue with the customer when considering replacing the air filter from the aftermarket.
