COVID-19 Analysis 


The COVID-19 pandemic is an on-going global situation. Apart from the human tragedy, this crisis has also severely impacted industries and economies across the globe, which also includes the auto industry. This on-going outbreak has resulted in a disruption in the supply chain across the auto sector. There has been a temporary suspension in international trade in different countries, thus having a negative effect on the automotive interior material market value. Besides, governments in a good number of countries have imposed restrictions on the mobility of citizens and a temporary halt of production facilities in key industries as preventive measures. With a good number of industries like logistics and steel depending largely on the auto sector, the dip in the sales of cars owing to the crisis is making a rippling effect. Even after the reopening of businesses, social and physical distancing will continue, thus the automotive industry will have to adapt to novel ways of working. Parts suppliers and OEMs have yet to return to complete production capacity. Constant delays in delivery may impact the market at several levels, from dampened vehicle sales, financially drained SMEs, shattered supply chains, and new car model launches. All these are likely to affect the automotive interior material market growth.
