Intake Filter Media Market Statistics – 2027

The global intake filter media market valued at $5.15 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $6.85 billion in 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.6%.    

One of the critical requirements to derive the best engine performance, low fuel consumption, and decreased pollutant emission is the uncontaminated intake air. The clean air that enters the engine very much depends on the efficiency of an air filter that has to block the soot, dust, and tire wear particles from entering the engine intake system. Intake filter media is the air cleaning part fixed in air filters to capture the dust and other particles from the air before allowing them to enter the engine. The use of different kinds of air filter media depends on various application areas, for instance, automotive, aerospace, marine, and others. There are various kinds of air filter materials (for instance, paper, foam, or cotton) that can be chosen to capture different types of particulate matter from entering the engine. The intake air filter media prevents the entry of particulate matter into the engine's cylinders, where it can cause severe mechanical wear and oil contamination.

An important characteristic of an air filter media is its particle capture effectiveness. It is calculated in percentage and specifies the fraction of particles present in the intake air that remains in the air filter. An efficient intake filter media has an efficiency of up to 99.9%. This means that almost all the contaminants are filtered by the intake filter media and it creates favorable conditions for longer maintenance life even under high particulate environments.

Synthetic filter media is projected as the most lucrative segment

Stringent government regulations regarding harmful automobile emissions

The transportation industry is one of the major contributors to air pollution across the world. Trucks, buses, and cars that are powered by fossil fuels release harmful emissions into the environment. These harmful pollutants include particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. To decrease automobile emissions, regulatory bodies, such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), implemented several regulations such as Standards for Exhaust and Evaporative Emissions, Control of Hazardous Air Pollutants and Air Toxics, and the National Low Emission Vehicle Program. Moreover, the implementation of regulations, such as Euro-6 in the European Union and BS-VI in India, has tightened the norms regarding automobile emissions.  

While fitting an air filter in the engine’s exhaust helps in reducing the release of pollutants into the atmosphere, the air intake filter plays an important role in controlling the release of harmful GHG emissions. The significance of an engine air intake filter has increased significantly over the years primarily due to stringent emission regulations. The air usually contains several impurities with distinct sizes, which can affect the engine functioning and performance after they enter the vehicle’s engine. The processes responsible for the harmful release of emissions are closely linked with the primary fuel combustion process. The emission from the exhaust greatly depends upon the air quality as the percentage of air involved in the combustion process is much higher than the fuel. In addition, the intake air filters increase the efficiency of the engine by removing fine dust particles and other foreign particles in the air that enter the engine.

Aftermarket is projected as the most lucrative segment

As the intake filter media is the most important component of the air filter, the rising demand for air filters is anticipated to propel the growth of the global intake filter media market over the forecast timeframe.
Use of nanotechnology for air filtration

Air filter media is a crucial component that decides the efficiency of air filtration. The technological advancements regarding the use of appropriate material for filter media over the years have resulted in the development of superior quality intake filter media. Combustion air often comprises particles that must not be permitted to enter the engine. The usage of an extremely efficient air filter becomes essential to safeguard the engine and its parts, such as the turbocharger, against defects and wear caused by dirt particles. Nanofiber filters offer an exceptionally high dust separation efficiency of around 99.99% for the removal of particles along with the low flow control and extended service life. This significantly increases the power output of the engines. The advent of nanofiber filter media for engine air intake filtration is expected to boost the efficiency of intake air filters market.

Commercial Vehicle is projected as the most lucrative segments

Emergence of washable air filters

Washable air filter is a type of engine intake air filters that don’t need periodic replacements and can be reused after washing them with appropriate cleaning solutions. Washable filters are easy to install, save money in the long run, incur low maintenance costs, and offer longer life for air filter media. Mostly, all washable air filters must be cleaned and re-oiled in about 50,000 miles as compared to changing a non-reusable air filter after around 15,000 miles. One of the most popular washable air filters is offered by K&N Engineering that is cost-effective for customers in the long run as the filter can be fitted and is ready to function just after washing and re-oiling. Some of the prominent manufacturers of washable air filters are AIRAID, K&N Engineering, and AEM Induction Systems. Original equipment (OE)-fitted washable air filters are fitted in cars such as Volkswagen Jetta and Toyota Fortuner. 

Although the market for washable intake air filters is in an emerging state, the benefits associated with reusable air filters are anticipated to bolster their demand over the years. This is expected to affect the sales of aftermarket intake air filters and restrain the growth of the intake filter media market over the forecast timeframe.

On Road is projected as the most lucrative segments

Growing demand for aircraft filters

The global passenger air traffic has witnessed an upward trend since 2009, and is anticipated to grow over the years. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) yearly worldwide statistics, the total number of commuters carried on scheduled flights rose to 4.38 billion in 2019, which was 3.65% higher than the previous year. The highest passenger traffic was witnessed in the Asia-Pacific region. In October 2018, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) publicized that the current developments in air transport projects that the passenger count could double to 8.2 billion in 2037. 

However, the COVID-19 pandemic created havoc for the aviation industry as almost all aircraft were grounded for most time of the year. According to ICAO, owing to the pandemic, the aviation industry witnessed an overall reduction of 2,600 million passengers or 60% reduction and suffered a loss of $370 billion in 2020 as compared to 2019. However, the aviation sector is anticipated to revive soon and the passenger air traffic will bounce back to its earlier levels in a short span of time. This is anticipated to escalate the demand for aircraft across the world. Increased passenger air traffic will lead to an increase in flight hours per aircraft, thereby resulting in shorter air filter replacement periods. This is anticipated to be one of the main factors increasing the demand for aircraft filters and boosting the growth of the global intake filter media market over the forecast timeframe.
