Impact of COVID-19 on the Car Wash System Market


The car wash system market has been negatively impacted in recent months owing to the lockdowns imposed globally to curb the spread of COVID-19. Car washing systems are utilized for easy cleaning and washing of the exterior and interior portions of cars. However, the growing demand for automobiles around the globe, owing to continuous innovation and increasing disposable income levels, is anticipated to boost the demand for car wash systems in the coming years. Also, several countries have granted permission to restart manufacturing plants and car service centers while observing precautions set by the governments. The other factors that are likely to drive the demand for car wash systems include the increasing production and sales of cars in the recent years and a decrease in consumer preference towards domestic car washing owing to water wastage and the time consumed. Moreover, car washing systems are gaining traction owing to numerous benefits including easy management, higher safety, reliability, better efficacy, and time efficiency.


In an attempt to restore economic conditions, several governments have granted permission to car manufacturers to resume their manufacturing plants and service centers. For instance, Tata Motors Limited resumed the operation of its manufacturing plants in May 2020. According to Business Standard, around 59% of the company’s showrooms for passenger vehicles have resumed operations. These showrooms account for around 69% of the retail market for the company. In another instance, Ford, Volkswagen, and General Motors have released long lists of guidelines to restart operations in the US. Several other manufacturers located in Europe and Asia are preparing to restart their operations as the lockdown norms are eased. Though car manufacturing companies are struggling to resume operations immediately owing to synchronization issues and lack of availability of workforce, the automobile industry is anticipated to grow in the long run, which is likely to increase the demand for car washing systems in the next five years. Furthermore, car wash systems are widely utilized in developed countries such as the US, China, Germany, Italy, and the UK. The lockdown regulations have been eased in these countries, which is anticipated to boost product demand, particularly in the countries mentioned above, thus driving the global demand for car wash systems.
