Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Car Care Products Market

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for retail car care products was mainly driven by the growing interest of car owners in maintaining their cars. However, in 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in value chains caused by the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The pandemic led to social restrictions and severe economic impact, which hampered the manufacturing and distribution of car care products. The decline in the growth of the automotive industry significantly impacted the demand for car care products in the global market. The global automotive industry was severely affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic also led to a dramatic decline in car sales. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, the global sales of all types of vehicles decreased from 91,227 million in 2019 to 78,774 million in 2020. This has negatively impacted the demand for car care products. Moreover, the shutdown of supermarkets, hypermarkets, and other stores reduced the sales of car care products. During lockdowns, people were forced to follow social distancing norms, which prevented them from visiting the shops to buy car care products. However, the consumption of car care products through e-commerce distribution channels witnessed an increase during the pandemic.

In 2021, the economies started reviving their operations, and various industries resumed business activities. As a result, several industries, including the automotive industry, witnessed a recovery in their operations. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, the global sales of all types of vehicles grew from 78,774 million in 2020 to 82,684 million in 2021. Thus, the increased sales of vehicles bolstered the demand for car care products.
