Concise Analysis of the International Air Filters Market In Automotive - Forecast to 2018


DUBLIN, Mar. 04, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s2kw3n/air_filters) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Air Filters Market In Automotive - Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.


Air filters are the key components for automobiles, and are evolving alongside with developments in the automotive industry. Air filters are classified into two categories-engine/intake air filter and cabin air filter. The intake air filter is used to prohibit the entry of foreign particles such as road dust, debris, etc. into the engine. This helps in the enhanced functionality of engines. It minimizes the emissions from vehicles and prevents the engine and its components from damages caused by foreign particles. Cabin air filters are the new types of air filters, which are specifically designed for the vehicle's cabin air filtration. The market for automotive air filter is influenced by production trends in the automotive industry, emission norms, health safety regulations, buyer's preferences, and lifestyle, whereas factors such as vehicle parc, average miles driven, and the types of filters used influence the aftermarket demand for air filters.

The function of the intake air filter is to filter the air before it enters the combustion chambers of the engine. Along with this, the filter also has to sustain a continuity in the airflow that reaches the engine. The external particles that are filtered by the air filter can be hazardous for the engine and its components such as piston, piston rings, engine cylinder, etc if they are not filtered. An unclean or damaged intake filter can hinder the engine performance and reduce fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Hence, timely cleaning or replacement of an intake air filter is important so as to increase the engine life and decrease the service intervals for vehicles.

At present, a majority of the vehicles is installed with air-conditioning systems, which in turn require cabin air filter. The trend for air conditioning is especially observed in the passenger car segment so as to provide better comfort to occupants. Additionally, to deal with factors such as increased air pollution, harmful exhaust gases, and other contaminants, cabin air filters play an important role by reducing the health risk involved with these gases or polluted air. These impurities, if passed through HVAC vents, can cause respiratory or allergic problems to occupants. The basic cabin air filter can filter harmful particles from the air, whereas advanced cabin air filter is capable of removing gases and odor associated with polluted air.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
