COVID-19 Impact Insights:

The COVID-19 outbreak has presented multiple challenges for the automotive industry. The outbreak came at a time when the automotive industry was already under a prolonged slowdown, causing disruption in the production of automobiles. More than 50% of the automotive towbar sales comes from North America and Europe. USA, being the worst affected country by COVID-19, has resulted in the shutdown of automotive plants and situation in EU still remains critical and has faced a production loss of more than 1.5 Mn vehicles which has directly impeded the sales of automotive towbar.

Furthermore, with the situation stabilizing in Asian countries, manufacturers are likely to invest in this region. The automotive vehicles demand in developing countries of Asia coupled with the resumption of production in China and other countries will enable the automotive towbar manufacturers to increase their presence in this region. Prominent players are optimistic that the production of vehicle will pick up by the end of 2020, in turn, creating demand for automotive towbars.  

Analyst Viewpoint

The COVID-19 outbreak has brought several challenges on the supply side, demand side and financials of leading manufacturers, causing delay in the development of products. However, the upcoming development in the automotive industries and resumption of production activities in Asian countries is anticipated to propel the demand for automotive towbars.
