According to the latest reports of the 2020 U.S. Industry Statistics and Market Research- Automobile Towing and Road Service, the global market is anticipated to rise at a substantial rate between 2020 and 2025. In fact, the industry was significantly growing at a steady rate in 2020.
But wait! I am sure that you’re well aware that a lot changed in the past year. A lot is going on in the concerned business industry, from dealing with the coronavirus pandemic to the shift in consumer demand.
Still, have no idea about what I am talking about? Don’t worry! If you are curious to know about those industry market trends, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what you need to know.
● Coronavirus Attack: COVID-19 didn’t spare anyone!
2020 was indeed the year of misfortunes. In fact, Covid-19 has almost conquered the whole world, and we all know that it’s definitely not good news. The outbreak affected the lives of more than millions of human lives worldwide (as of now). It literally brought the world to a standstill with everything being shut and every one confined indoors.
And the towing industry is no such exception.
Due to restricted mobility and lack of jobs, the revenue of the Automobile Towing Industry statistics shows that the industry is anticipated to decline sharply in 2020. Amidst such a pandemic, unnecessary travel was obviously discouraged to limit the spread of the virus.
What next? Of course, things won’t stay the same way!
However, with new guidelines, the government has permitted the road movement, and people are trying to adjust to the new normal.
And so, people prefer to run their errands in their own cars rather than using a means of public transport.
But what if someone’s car breaks down in the middle of the road? And what if the damage is beyond repair? That’s where the towing services come in!
A person can easily contact the nearby vehicle transporting services to help them aid in the emergency. Many companies have adopted the latest safety measures, such as social distancing and regular sanitizing, to limit the virus’s spread. It makes the process healthy and safe.
● The shift in Consumer Demand Curve brought a change that nobody expected.
As mentioned above, the potential customers of the automobile industry were confined indoors because of obvious reasons. It led to a drastic shift in the consumer demand curve. This is because with the laying offs and the imposed lockdown, the last thing that people wanted to do was to purchase a new vehicle.
But how is that related to the towing industry? Since many automobile customers weren’t in the automobile manufacturers’ proximity, they used to get their vehicles towed from the showroom to their place. That was really convenient for the buyer as well as the seller.
In fact, many people were about to move from one place to another. And people booked such moving services to get their car or other vehicles moved from one place to another. Since the movement was restricted during the lockdown, people had to cancel or postpone their “moving day.” And that led to a decline in the consumer demand curve.
But, as it is said, there’s a sunrise after a long night!
A recent survey confirmed that many citizens were reluctant to use crowded public transport to save themselves from getting exposed to the deadly virus. And this led to an increase in demand for private vehicles.
People started purchasing and ordering the vehicles and the best part was that they needed a vehicle transport service to get their cars delivered at their doorstep. And thus, the curve started to rise again.
Manufacturers started contacting the concerned companies and ensured the safety of their clients and employees. And making the entire process safe and easy. So, there’s nothing to worry about!
The bottom line is that,
It is rightly said that “The one who stays calm is the one who wins the battle!”
The global roadside assistance industry market continues to undergo several transformations.
These were some of the changes and how the business owners managed to cope with the losses.
You never know what situation awaits. With advancing technologies and trends, the towing companies are already booming and making the lives of their clients easier than before by providing immediate roadside assistance. The past year was indeed rough on every business. The stronger strategies with a positive state of mind and early solutions helped the concerned business owners survive in the market.
