Air filters or air filtration techniques are designed and used to remove impurities such as dirt and dust from the air. The devices are used across various application areas that are air sensitive or require high air quality. Presently, several types of air filtration devices are made available owing to the variations in application requirements, and these techniques include ionic air filters, HEPA (high efficiency particulate absorbing), carbon air filters and UV light air filters. Air filters can be broadly categorized into engine/intake air filters and cabin air filters, wherein the former is used to filter the air utilized during the engine’s combustion process, whereas the latter is used to filter air passing through the vents of the HVAC system.

Air filters have been of paramount importance in the automotive industry and play a significant role as a part of emission control technology. In recent times, air filters have emerged as an integral part of the automotive market, as there has been increasing awareness regarding environmental pollution, leading to the formulation of stringent regulations regarding emission control. Further, reducing emissions is an important factor to improve the air quality, as the World Health Organization (WHO) stated in 2011, that urban outdoor pollution is expected to cause considerable number of deaths every year worldwide. The aforementioned reasons have significantly driven the need for air filters in automobiles. The European Green Cars Initiative (EGCI) responded proactively to address these environmental concerns. For instance, it gives financial aid for research activities into green technologies, wherein the research is funded in several ways through greener combustions engines for trucks and reduction of taxes on low CO2 cars among others. The EGCI is taking necessary efforts, which will have long term effects, ensuring that the automobile market remains environment friendly and competitive. The EU offers ‘super credits’ to carmakers for manufacturing vehicles emitting less than 50g of CO2 per kilometer. It has further set a few mandatory emission reduction targets, which form the EU's cornerstone strategy to enhance the fuel economy of cars. The EU has been working closely with many auto manufacturers, encouraging them to manufacture fuel efficient cars. In spite of many regulatory initiatives, there are still a large number of older vehicles being used, which delays the benefits of new vehicle emission standards.

Apart from automotive manufacturers, vehicle end users benefit substantially from the use of cabin air filters, which were pioneered by BMW and Saab AB. For instance, changing of cabin air filters has now become a part of vehicle maintenance, as clogged filters can lead to low fuel mileage and cause window fogging. Air filters are also used as a defense against harmful airborne abrasives that cause engines to wear out before time. Automakers are increasingly considering safety and comfort as crucial aspects to differentiate their product offerings. They are realizing that apart from emphasizing filtering engine air, they should also focus on filtering air for the passengers. Acknowledging the growing demand for cabin air filters from various carmakers, many air filter suppliers such as 3M are going head to head with other main suppliers.
