KEY FACTORS SHAPING ANTIMICROBIAL CAR CARE PRODUCTS MARKET
Increasing Awareness About Health and Hygiene Among Consumers
In automotive industry, there are usually lax protocols for regular cleaning. When unprotected surfaces come in contact with microbes, these microbes infect them and double every 20 minutes. Additionally, contact with sources of nutrition such as moisture can further increase the growth of microbes.
As these microbes continue to multiply on surfaces, stains and odour can occur, contributing to premature product degradation and requiring early replacement. Hence, the antimicrobial products are considered vital in car care technologies.
Furthermore, increasing awareness among consumers for hygiene and health due to increasing cases of nosocomial infections and outbreaks of life threatening diseases as well as for prevention from such diseases is projected to drive the demand growth of antimicrobial car care products during the forecast period.
Global COVID-19 Pandemic to Present Lucrative Growth Opportunities

Fabric & Surface Cleaners Remain Sought-after
Easy availability, and low-cost attributes of fabric & surface cleaners are making them a preferred category to invest in antimicrobial car care products market. While fabric & surface disinfectants carve out a substantial share in overall market revenue, their adoption will dampen over due course of time. Foam cleaners offer better output compared to other antimicrobial car care products. Although these products generate relatively lesser total returns to stakeholders, they will experience swelling demand growth in the near term.
Rise in COVID-19 Cases in Europe and APAC to Attract Stakeholders
The exponential spread of COVID-19 has compelled governments across the world to impose travel bans, in-house quarantines, and at-scale hygienic measures in every sphere. As epidemiological numbers are outperforming in Europe, at present, players in antimicrobial car care products market continue to cite prospective avenues in the developed region.
The trend is similar in Asia Pacific (APAC), especially in China, which is again witnessing a notable upsurge in confirmed cases, and India, where government has been proactive in ensuring optimum hygienic surroundings. As such, antimicrobial car care product manufacturers are viewing APAC for material revenue growth.
Online Sales Channel - An Immediate Imperative
Online sales channels provide umpteen benefits such as easy selection from a wide array of products with price comparison option. As the COVID-19 spread has nearly paralyzed physical distribution of antimicrobial car care products, market players are aggressively moving toward online sales platforms to sustain their business footprint. While offline channels would remain conventional sales medium, short-term impact due to the pandemic is paving way for online sales channels. Further, players are offering antimicrobial car care products at discounted prices to enhance their customer base.
How Growth will Unfold
Manufacturers continue to allocate their capitals to passenger cars, given rising trend of private vehicle ownership and growing car-pooling and rental car services. About 7 out of 10 antimicrobial car care products would be used in passenger cars, and the trend will trace a positive trajectory over the projection period.
Application of antimicrobial car care products in commercial cars, on the other hand, is poised to slide in the years ahead. This study further underscores that, value creation from passenger cars would be over thrice that from commercial cars.
