Examining the engine oil filter technology and market dynamics

Technology Trends

The demand for engine oil filters is expected to witness a drop between 2018 and 2020—mirroring the drop in LV production. The demand scenario for engine oil filters currently favors standalone and spin-on design and it is expected to remain similar even through to 2025.

The internal combustion engine (ICE) is an intricate assembly of several moving parts such as pistons, connecting rods, camshafts, and valves. The individual components are usually assembled with very tight tolerances between them and operate at very high speeds when the engine is running. For the efficient working of an engine and to prevent excessive wear and tear, the parts must be sufficiently lubricated and the heat produced as a byproduct must be managed. What adds further complexity is the different thermal expansion rates of the individual components.
