Some of the most common filtration components used in heavy-duty vehicles include air filters, oil filters, fuel filters, and cabin air filters. As regulations on emissions and environmental impact continue to tighten, the demand for advanced filtration technologies is expected to grow, further driving the market growth. The U.S. has one of the largest heavy-duty road vehicle fleets, such as trucks, buses, tractor-trailers, dump trucks, cement mixers, and other specialty vehicles used in construction, mining, and other industries.

U.S. Heavy Duty Road Filtration Aftermarket Industry size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

According to data from the Federal Highway Administration, the total number of registered commercial trucks in the U.S. was approximately 13.5 million as of 2022. As the demand for the goods and services industry continues to grow, the heavy-duty road vehicle fleet is expected to increase; further driving the demand for products and services in the heavy-duty road filtration aftermarket.

Aftermarket filters provide various advantages over conventional ones. However, their high cost may restrain market growth. 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 cellulose, polyhydroxyalkanoates biodegradable plastics.

Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of maintaining good air quality in enclosed spaces, such as truck cabins. As a result, cabin air filters have become an increasingly important component of the heavy-duty road filtration aftermarket. The above factors will positively impact industry growth in the years to come.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market growth stage is medium, and the pace of its growth is accelerating. The market is highly fragmented owing to the presence of a large number of regional and global players, which makes it difficult for small-scale manufacturers to compete with global players.

Heavy Duty Road Filtration Aftermarket Industry Concentration & Characteristics

The heavy-duty road filtration aftermarket industry is also characterized by a high degree of product innovation; for instance, many manufacturers are developing new and improved filtration media that can capture smaller particles, while also maintaining high airflow rates. Some of the most innovative media include nanofiber products, which can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns, and blended media, which combines different types of fibers to optimize filtration efficiency.

Many consumers are looking for products that are environmentally friendly and have a low carbon footprint. As a result, to meet these demands, many manufacturers in the market are developing innovative products, which include filters made from sustainable and biodegradable materials, as well as hybrid and electric filtration systems that reduce emissions and fuel consumption, for instance, cellulose-based material filters and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and high-altitude EMP (HEMP) filters. This provides huge growth opportunities to the market.

The heavy-duty road filtration aftermarket is impacted by various regulations and standards aimed at promoting sustainability and eco-friendliness. For instance, the National Emissions Standards for Heavy-Duty Engines: These standards are set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and are designed to reduce emissions of pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter from heavy-duty vehicles.

Application Insights

The trucks & buses segment accounted for a substantial share in 2023. The demand for filters including oil and fuel filters in the trucks and buses sector has been steadily increasing since trucks & buses require regular maintenance and filter changes to keep them running smoothly. For instance, as recommended by truck and bus manufacturers, the oil filter must be changed every 10 to 15 thousand kilometers; the fuel filter, every 40 to 50 thousand kilometers; and the air filter every 20 to 35 thousand kilometers. The above mentioned factors are expected to boost the demand for heavy-duty road filtration aftermarket.

Global Heavy Duty Road Filtration Aftermarket Industry share and size, 2023

The construction segment has been growing rapidly in recent years. Construction vehicles are often exposed to harsh operating conditions, such as dust, dirt, and debris, which can get into the fuel & engine system and cause damage to the vehicle. Heavy-duty road filter helps prevent this by removing contaminants, such as dirt, rust, and water, from various parts of the vehicle.Several types of fuel filters are commonly used in construction vehicles, including primary and secondary fuel filters. Primary fuel filters are typically located between the fuel tank and engine, while secondary fuel filters are located between the primary filter and engine.

Product Insights

The oil filters segment held a significant share of 36.0% in 2023. Oil filters are an essential component of heavy-duty road vehicles, as they help remove contaminants from the engine oil, preventing damage and increasing the engine’s lifespan. Furthermore, increasing awareness of the importance of engine maintenance and the need to reduce downtime has also contributed to the demand for oil filters. The above factor is likely to positively influence the demand for oil filters in the heavy-duty road vehicle filtration aftermarket.

With the growth of the transportation industry and a rise in e-commerce, many trucking companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Regular maintenance, including the replacement of fuel filters, is an important step in achieving these goals. The fuel filter collects debris, contaminants, and moisture that could otherwise get into the engine and may damage the cylinder, pistons, and other engine components. In addition, new regulations and standards are being implemented to reduce emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, which is further driving the demand for fuel filters in the market.

Regional Insights

North America heavy duty road filtration aftermarket is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The highly unified supply chain network in North America connects manufacturers and consumers efficiently through multiple transportation modes, including freight rail, air, and express delivery services; maritime transport; & truck transport, thus driving market growth. The availability of convenient financing options, a strong emphasis by regional governments to ensure in-house automotive production, and investments in infrastructure development are some of the factors expected to contribute to market growth in North America.
