Oil Filters Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of oil filters. Oil filters remove contaminants from the oil used in automobiles, trucks and hydraulic machinery. Although these filters are primarily used in gasoline and diesel engines, automatic transmissions, power steering and gas turbines, they are also used in many manufacturing processes involving oil. About 40 large companies, many of which sell their filters under multiple brands, manufacture oil filters. Filters are sold either by a manufacturer or a secondary supplier, such as a wholesaler or retailer. This report does not include hydraulic oil or motor oil, nor does it include oil changes or other automotive services.
