In order to fulfill this request, we first searched for a precompiled list of the top mobile filter distributors in Germany in market research reports, company portals, media sources, and industry portals. However, as we did not find this information in the public domain, we adopted an alternate strategy:
The top mobile filter distributors/ wholesalers were identified from among the top German aftermarket distributors profiled by Wolk. The top auto parts distributors in Europe that are leading distributors of Mann+Hummel automotive filters were identified as the top mobile filter distributors in Germany. Mann+Hummel, the top automotive filter manufacturer in the world, is based in Germany and has a large share of the German market. The revenue figures of the firms were also taken into account to determine the top distributors; however, the mobile filter sales revenues could not be compared as they were not publicly available for any of the firms. SF Filter was included as it is a leading filter distributor in Europe and the revenues (although only $18 million) of the company are generated almost entirely from the sale of filters. Coler GmbH & Co. KG was not considered as it is a subsidiary of Alliance Automotive Group, a French company. As the companies identified are based in Germany and are leading players in Europe, it was assumed that they are also the leading players in Germany.
