The global automotive towbar market is expected to surpass a valuation of US$ 4.4 Bn at the end of 2020 and is projected to grow at a value CAGR of more than 3% during the forecast period 2020-2030. The global sales of automotive towbars will decline in the near term owing to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the prolonged slowdown in the automotive industry.

In the long term, the growing use of recreational vehicles and participation in adventure tourism and off-roading activities will be a major factor contributing to the growing demand for automotive towbars. Moreover, caravanning for leisure has become an increasingly popular recreational activity. In addition, significant rise in disposable incomes coupled with a well-established road infrastructure has led to a substantial rise in the number of automobiles in these regions, which is resulting in increased sales of automotive towbars.
