Why the Oil Filters Market is Growing, Smart Solutions for it

According to Transparency Market Research, the global oil filters market is forecast to reach $5.3 billion by 2026. Gain insight into leading trends and growth factors.

Stringent Carbon Emission Norms

Oil filters help vehicle engines function properly, reducing fuel consumption and emissions. In addition, they also aid in enhancing the overall emission control system and minimize ignition problems.

As countries worldwide create increasingly stringent carbon emission norms, it becomes more important to use proper oil filtration methods in vehicles. In particular, countries are aiming to reduce tailpipe and evaporative emissions from:

  • Passenger cars
  • Light-duty trucks
  • Medium and heavy-duty vehicles

Increased Use of Diesel Fuel

As cited in NACS, duel fuel-powered vehicles are increasing in demand. In particular, this is due to diesel’s ability to offer 20 – 40% more miles per gallon than gasoline equivalents. This improved fuel economy is causing consumers to take note and allowing manufacturers to meet federal fuel efficiency requirements.

Heightened Awareness About Engine Health

As consumers become increasingly concerned about their vehicle’s engine health and continue to drive more miles, they are likely to schedule an increased number of maintenance and service checks. This entails oil filter replacement, which allows for purer fuel to enter the engine cylinder for proper combustion. 

Smart Oil Filter Solutions

While all oil filters aid in improving engine life, certain oil filter materials are better suited than others for particular end-uses. For example, some types of filter media are able to trap small contaminants over a longer period of time and with greater capacity than other types.

Likewise, some filter adhesives improve filters’ overall performance. These smart solutions also offer adhesion to a variety of substrates, including:

  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Wood
