Automotive sales have increased significantly in the recent past, which has accelerated the demand for cabin AC filters. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), automobile production is growing at a rate of around 4% annually since 2010. According to the same source, in 2011, the global automobile production pegged at 79 million units comprising of both passenger and commercial vehicles, growing steadily to 89 million units in 2015. Increasing demand for vehicles has encouraged automakers to improve production output to accommodate growth, thereby driving the demand for cabin AC filter. Therefore, these factors are expected to boost the market growth in the near future.

  1. Growing adoption of cabin AC filters to strain out pollutants is expected to propel growth of the global automotive cabin AC filter market over the forecast period

The HAVC system installed in vehicles does not strain out the air present on the outside of the vehicle, which is frequently polluted with impurities aging ranging from chemical to biological such as dust, pollen, microorganisms, suspended chemical and exhaust particles, and other airborne particles. These particles are directly traveled inside the cabin of the vehicle. Furthermore, HAVC systems are operated in a closed environment, these pollutants remain trapped inside the vehicle, which increases the concentration of potentially hazardous contaminants in the cabin. Therefore, introduction of cabin AC filters in automobiles has been a key addition, become a mandatory feature in all modern vehicles. This, in turn, is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific region dominated the global automotive cabin AC filters market in 2019, accounting for 37.2 % share in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America, respectively

Service center owners have started alerting vehicle owners about the functions of various automotive peripherals and the importance of their timely replacement, in order to ensure smooth running.

  1. Inadequate supply-demand ration and inventory pile-up of raw materials are expected to hinder growth of the global automotive cabin AC filter market during the forecast period

There is a frequent imbalance in supply-demand ration, which results unnecessary waiting time for consumers. Moreover, pile of inventory raw materials is expected to result in price fluctuations, thereby hindering the demand for cabin AC filters. Hence these factors are expected restrain growth of the global cabin AC filter market over the forecast period.

Market Opportunity

  1. Refurbishing of older vehicles with cabin AC filter is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunity for market players

Although vehicles produced post 1990 are fitted with cabin AC filter, older vehicles are still equipped with conventional HVAC system. However, consumers are increasingly become aware of negative effects of air pollution of human body. Thus, such cars are being refurbished with cabin AC filters, with demand for customized cabin AC filters in their respective HVAC systems. This, in turn, is expected to pose lucrative growth opportunities for market players during the forecast period.

  1. Increasing demand for vehicles in emerging economies is expected to pose significant growth opportunities for market players in the near future

Growing urbanization, increasing disposable income, and improving living standard have accelerated demand for vehicles emerging economies such as South Africa, China, Japan, and India. According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), in 2018, total automobiles sales accounted for 24,981,312 units, which increased to 26,267,783 units in 2019. Growing vehicle sales is boosting the demand for cabin AC filters, thereby providing lucrative growth opportunity for market players during the forecast period.
