Global Automotive Cabin AC Filters Market – Insights
An automotive cabin AC filter is a component, which is used to filter out the harmful airborne particles such as mold spores, dust, soot, pet dander, smog, mildew, fungus, pollen, fumes, tobacco smoke, and other allergens and odors inside the vehicle. Cabin AC filters ensure driver and passenger comfort with safer breathing air through heat and ventilation system. Furthermore, as an extra benefit to regular ACs, cabin AC filters helps to decrease cost of ownership by decreasing the wear of the vehicle's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.
Global automotive cabin AC filters market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period (2019–2027). The market growth for automotive cabin AC filters is majorly attributed to growing demand for vehicles and implementation of cabin AC filters in them. It is also due to rising awareness among passengers and drivers regarding changing cabin AC filter after regular interval of time to avoid asthma or some other allergies caused by airborne contaminants by continuously sitting inside the car.
The major restraining factor for global automotive cabin AC filters market is that most of the consumers are not aware about the function of filter in the system. Thus, most consumers are not aware of the replacement cycle of the filter. This can hamper the market growth to a certain extent. However, aftermarket and original equipment manufacturing (OEM) vendors are actively educating automobile owners about the function of various automotive peripherals and the importance of their timely replacement in order to ensure smooth functioning of vehicles and to avoid health related issues.

Automotive cabin AC filter is a component, which is used to filter out the harmful airborne particles such as dust, exhaust particles and also foul odor from entering the automobile cabin environment through the heat and ventilation system. The filter maintains quality of air within the cabin of the vehicle. They are often rectangular or nearly square in shape and acts as a barrier to trap dust, pollen, leaves and other debris, which helps in reducing the flow of chemically contaminated air which passes into the ventilation and air conditioning system. Cabin air filters in vehicles are generally attached to the glove box or are placed under the vehicle’s dashboard. Automobile filter manufacturers are focusing on producing multi-layer air filters with highest filtration capacity to trap and remove smallest particles.
Demand for automotive cabin AC filter is increasing globally, as automotive sales are gaining traction across the globe. For instance, according to the statistics published by Organization Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), global automobile production is growing at a rate of around 2% annually. Furthermore, the global automobile production stood at 96.75 million units in 2018, comprising of both passenger and commercial vehicles. Increasing demand for vehicles is driving the automobile manufacturers to improve production output to fulfill the demand for cabin AC filters, thereby positively influencing the global automobile cabin AC filter market.
