Restraining Factor

Stalled Automotive Production amid COVID-19 to Hamper Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a severe and unprecedented downturn in the automotive industry. Lockdowns, social distancing, and strict government regulations on the movement of people and materials have forced auto companies to shut down production and sales operations. For example, in March 2020, the French automotive giant, PSA Group, announced the closure of a dozen of its plants across Europe. Similarly, Fiat Chrysler halted production at most of plants in Europe, with temporary shutdown of its facilities in Serbia, Italy, and Poland.
