The auto sector in China has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects are expected to last till mid 2021. Shut down of manufacturing facilities, restricted mobility of consumers during lockdown and consumer’s income cuts, have all negatively affected the sector. Fear of a second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic has made the scenario even more uncertain.
The premium and luxury car sales in China experienced a 42.4% year-over-year decline in the period January-March 2020. The market began to revive in April 2020, with sales of 277,000 vehicles, recording a growth of 11.1% year-on-year. The growth continued into June 2020 and sales increased by 27% year-on-year to reach 246,236.
Globally, once the Pandemic is over, it is expected that consumers will look for enhanced health, hygiene and sanitation features in the cars that they buy. Some aspects including in-built sanitization, advanced air-purification systems and anti-bacterial surfaces are likely to see interest from consumers. Players that are able to offer these and other innovative health features at an accessible price are expected to appeal more to consumers.
