Market Growth to Dip amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is projected to have a strong impact on the global automotive sector. As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, governments across the world are compelled to enforce stringent lockdowns and restrictions on trade and transportation as a measure to contain the virus. The lockdown of industries across China in the first quarter of 2024 has had a strong impact on the global automotive sector due to which, the all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market is expected to have a slower growth rate than initial projections. However, as industries across China have opened up, production and other operations have resumed due to which, the market is expected to show minor signs of recovery.

While the automotive sector is expected to stroll through an uncertain period in 2020, the global all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle market is estimated to grow at a sluggish pace. Disruptions across the supply chain and shortage of automotive components and materials are some of the other factors that are likely to hinder the production of all-wheel drive vehicles amid the ongoing pandemic.
