Heavy Duty Road Filtration Aftermarket size, by product

In the U.S., oil segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 31.1% in 2015 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Oil filters are majorly used in heavy-duty vehicles such as construction machinery, agricultural equipment, and others. The latest technologies and innovation in the country makes it a mature market in comparison to others.

Aftermarket filters provide various advantages over the conventional ones. However, their high cost may be a restraining factor for the market over the forecast period. OEM manufactured filters are produced in bulk, providing economies of scale benefits to the manufacturers. Also, to suit varying applications, high-quality materials are used for manufacturing.

WHO has published data regarding the particulate matter concentration in major cities such as Mumbai, Karachi, and Rome. To target the particulate emission levels of 10µg/m3, WHO is advocating the formulation of regulations to curb pollution. All major cities had much more particulate concentration than the required values in 2014, owing to vehicles’ particulate emission. This trend has forced the government to encourage the use of efficient emission systems.

Major industry participants are focusing more on product differentiation. Fram Filters have developed filters possessing the time-release technology (TRT). This technology prolongs the degradation of oil to prolong oil replacement duration. Such innovations are further expected to drive the market.

Heavy Duty Road Filtration Aftermarket Industry Trends

The increased demand for road filtration equipment owing to better performance of the engine is driving the growth of the market. It is observed that even the smallest particles damage a vehicle’s engine’s internal components making it necessary to have efficient filters. The aftermarket filters are designed to remove contaminants, dirt, and debris. They facilitate the engine with clean airflow and keep it well-lubricated thereby enhancing its performance.

OEM filters as the name suggests are the original products manufactured and sold by the same company owing to this, customers are observed to prefer OEM filters over aftermarket filters. 

Moreover, new advancements in aftermarket filters are offering higher quality at a lower cost. Aftermarket filters are available in a wider price range and cost less than OEM filters. In addition, they are designed to be compatible with any other vacuum cleaner or with a specific vacuum cleaner brand. This thus provides huge growth opportunities to the market.
