Impact of COVID-19 on Automotive TIC Market

The global economy has been severely impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The auto industry has seen the impact of the coronavirus crisis evolve from a supply shock to a global demand shock. The uncertain time required for lockdown and supply chain disruptions has baffled industry players to project any possibility of resurgence in the automotive industry. Besides, a severe impact of the COVID-19 has also been observed on the consumer demand for new automobiles, which is expected to severely impact the global automotive industry as well as associated market such as automotive TIC market.

According to data published by Autocar India Magazine, the global vehicle sales in March 2020 dipped to just above 5 million units and witnessed a significant drop of 39% compared to sales in March 2019. Top global automotive manufacturing countries including China, the U.S., Germany, the U.K. and India stood still in terms of manufacturing and sales during the first quarter of 2020. The U.S. and China registered double-digit decline in automobile sales; however, Europe witnessed the worst decline in more than 38 years. Combined sales of Europe-27 registered a drop of 52% compared to previous year. The losses made automotive companies fall back years and will certainly take a long time to regain their growth trajectory. However, sales in electric cars, especially in some European countries show positive signs of growth. Electric vehicles including hybrids, plug-ins, and full-electrics recorded a positive growth of 15% and total market share of 17.4% in the European countries. In order to counter the decline in sales, automotive companies are undertaking several measures to revive the market. Efforts such as complimentary services with the purchase of new vehicles, door step services, and insurance benefits are some of the few activities incorporated to attract new customers by several industrial players including Ford, Hyundai, General Motors, and Volkswagen AG, among others. Besides, local governments and organization are also offering incentive programs, tax benefits, and relief packages to mitigate the pandemic impact and rekindle the market to its original growth trajectory. Major automotive producing countries including Japan, South Korea, and India have already announced relief packages for manufacturing sectors including automotive sector.

The global automotive TIC market study presents historical market data in terms of value (2018 and 2019), estimated current data (2020), and forecasts for 2027. The market is segmented on the basis of services, location, supply chain services, application, and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at a country level.

Based on service type, the testing service segment is estimated to command the largest share of the overall automotive TIC market in 2020. The large share of this segment is attributed to the high demand for quality and safety products and strong recommendations from the regulatory authorities to ensure the safety, quality, and efficiency of the products. Besides, continuous investments in R&D activities by service providers to expand their presence and to provide test environment is expected to support the growth of this market segment. However, the inspection services segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Stringent rules for vehicle inspection to ensure governing safety, emissions, or both and growing consumer awareness about the safety & product quality are supporting the growth of the automotive inspection services market over the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing investment in the automotive inspection services industry by leading players is further expected to encourage the demand for these services.

Based on sourcing type, the in-house segment is estimated to command the largest share of the overall automotive TIC market in 2020. Conducting in-house TIC services allow manufacturers to exert higher levels of control by keeping services and personnel under direct control; therefore, in-house services are likely to capture a larger share of the automotive TIC market. In-house services not only lower the risks associated with poor vehicle maintenance, including equipment failure and crashes, but also enable manufacturers to identify the problems instantaneously. However, the outsourcing segment is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Outsourcing help manufacturers to get access to skilled expertise, focus on core activities, manage the risks effectively, and increase in-house efficiency. Increasing demand for automotive testing, certification, and inspection services is placing a strain on the in-house TIC workforces and processes of companies that are anticipated to drive the fast growth of the outsourcing segment.
