After the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, major countries in Asia Pacific, such as India, China, Australia, and Japan, experienced a sharp decline in their GDPs in 2020 due to the sudden closedown of the majority of economic activities across the region. Limitations and travel restrictions imposed by governments, and the rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 led to the limited availability of a workforce, which hampered automobile component production levels. All these factors negatively impacted the automobile industry, as well as active grille shutter market growth. European The sales of automobiles in Europe declined by ~23% in 2020; companies in the region delivered 12 million in 2020, which was less by ~3 million than the deliveries reported in 2019. Key players in the active grille shutter market witnessed a sharp decrease in demand for their products. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a drop in the active grille shutter market size in 2020 and the first few quarters of 2021.
