An automotive air filter is a piece of equipment made of fibrous materials that filter the intake air of solid particles like pollen, dust, bacteria, and mold. A catalyst or absorbent is used in chemical air filters to get rid of molecular pollutants like ozone or volatile organic compounds. Applications where the quality of the air is crucially important to include car engines and ventilation systems for buildings.
By 2022 and 2032, the automobile air filter market is expected to be worth US$5,321.3 million and US$6,680 million, respectively. The market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 2.3% between 2022 and 2032.
The air intake for the passenger compartment of a car houses the cabin automotive air filter, which is a paper-pleated filter. Others have a distinctive shape to meet the available space of outside-air intakes. Some automotive air filters are rectangular or similar in shape to that of the combustion air filter. Nash Motors was the first automaker to offer a disposable air filter to maintain the ventilation system. The combustion automotive air filter prevents particulate matter from getting into the cylinders of the engine, where it can contaminate the oil and lead to mechanical damage.
These days, fuel-injected automobiles use a flat panel-shaped paper pleated filter element. These filters are kept in a plastic container that is attached to a throttle body. Cylinder air filters, which range in size from 6 to 16 inches, are used in older automobiles with throttle bodies or carburetor fuel injection systems.
