How COVID-19 Impacted on Global Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous Car in Automotive Industry ?


The pandemic originated from China, marking its beginning in 2019 and has been continuously spreading by then to all over the world, so far 218 countries and territories and 2 international conveyances have been affected with Covid-19. The U.S. being on the top with cases reaching to about 19.7 million, followed by India, Brazil and then by many European countries such as Russia, France, Italy and others. The Covid-19 cases reaching to the big named countries with strong dominance in the global market which has adversely affected the economy globally. The spread of Corona virus has led to the global recession, many companies are being bound to take stringent actions of laying of their employees, small business are being shut and manufacturing facilities are being put on hold. There has been a disruption in supply chain of many industries due to restriction in logistics and closing of manufacturing facilities. In addition, the slowdown in economy has lowered the spending capability of individuals and people are saving money for emergencies.
The U.S. witnessed a decline of 4.8% on an annualized basis in the first quarter Q1-2020. In addition, the slowdown in economy has also lowered the spending capability of individuals and people are saving money for emergencies.
The Latin America region is affected by covid-19 in both human and economic terms. The IMF World Economic Outlook stated a decrease of 8.1% in GDP of Latin America in 2020.
The World Bank stated that the global economy is expected to reduce by 5.2% in 2020. Emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs) are expected to decrease by 2.5% and the economic activity in advanced economies may get reduced by 7% in 2020.
Autonomous car is an automobile that is capable of sensing its environment and shifting effectively with low human input. Autonomous vehicles combine a ramification of sensors to understand their surroundings, inclusive of sonar, radar, GPS, lidar, odometry and inertial measurement units. Advanced control structures interpret sensory records to identify suitable navigation paths as well as limitations and applicable signage. In 1939, first self-driving car was developed by Norman Bel Geddes, the car was run by radio-controlled electromagnetic fields that were generated with magnetized metal spikes embedded in the roadway. In 1977, self-driving cars with camera system were launched by Japanese that relayed data to a computer to process images of the road.


The pandemic is bound to bring new trends in the market such as increase of digitalization, increasing automation, high adoption of e-commerce and low dependency on human labor. The companies require taking strategic decision in order to sustain their development in this pandemic crisis. Companies have delayed any sort of acquisitions and cut short the capital expenditure in order to maintain their financial conditions, in addition they also need to set the sales projection so as to limit their production and avoid any extra spending. Companies need to align their strategies with the changing market, they need to operate the factories according to the present safety norms of government in order to bring back the production back to pace. Companies need to innovate and develop technologies according to the changing trends of the society.
The pandemic has led to people working from home and fewer roads are populated with vehicles. People are also saving their money for more important emergencies. This has led down the sales of cars in 2020. The lower sales of automotive vehicles will reduce the demand of autonomous vehicles.

For instance,
In March 2020, the sales of cars dropped by 30% and the global sales of passenger cars are expected to drop down to 60.5 million units from that of 79.6 million units in 2017.
Moreover, the productions of motor vehicles have also fallen down over the years that will negatively affect the growth of autonomous and semi-autonomous market. The trade war between China and the U.S. will also create negative effect on the market as they are dominating countries in production of motor vehicles.
However, it is seen that the pandemic has led to digital transformation in various industries and the automobile industry looks forward to incorporate more advance technologies. It is seen that about 55% of small businesses are willing to incorporate autonomous fleet in the next two decades. Moreover, there are about 1,400 self-driving cars in the U.S. and more vehicles are being tested on the road.
The pandemic has boosted the digital transformation of industries; companies are focusing more on digital platform to interact with their clients and customers. People working from home are also more reliable on digital sources. The automation and digitalization has been boosted during the pandemic, however, due to several restrictions to logistics and implementation of lockdown the automotive sector has faced adverse effect on the supply chain. Supply chain for the autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles was adversely affected as several manufacturing facilities were closed down, labor was cut short and transportation and logistics were restricted.


About 125 million passenger cars with embedded connectivity are expected to be shipped globally in the period of 2018 to 2022, and the connected car market is expected to grow by 270% by 2022.
COVID-19 has impacted the operations of many OEMs, from production to R&D. While industry contributors would possibly see quick-term disruption to autonomous vehicles improvement and roll-outs, this disruption may create new possibilities for adoption of autonomous vehicles generation inside the purchaser segments and boost up adoption in various business segments as autonomous vehicles era is visible as a vital component of responding in times of emergencies and uncertainty.
As the Covid-19 prevails the initial period saw a disruption in both supply and demand of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles market. Most of the manufacturing facilities were closed bringing down the requirement of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles. However, with more stringent regulations by the government to increase the road safety, more autonomous vehicles are being developed with highly advanced technologies integrated. The cars are now fully connected with the smartphones through the internet.

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many bulk material handling companies throughout the world have had to either temporarily close or reduce their workforces to prevent the spread of the virus. Through worldwide shortages of goods, it soon was apparent how important the world’s manufacturing and warehouse productivity is to the economy. In the bulk material handling system market, the business impact eventually proved to be less severe than first anticipated once lockdowns and restrictions were lifted. Nevertheless, the limited access to customers’ sites affected both capital and aftermarket sales of suppliers throughout the year. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted that automation is needed for supply chains to increase efficiency. During the recent period, very few percent of supply chains felt fully prepared for the coronavirus impact. However, the bulk material handling industry can develop this situation with innovation, automation and perseverance. AFTERMATH OF GLOBAL BULK MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM MARKET COVID-19 pandemic affected a wide range of industries, from small to large manufacturing companies. It hampered the worldwide demand for solutions in the bulk material handling system market up to a certain extent. Limited workforce and operational restrictions negatively affected the product development life cycle.

The companies developed different strategies and technologies specific to tackle problems that occurred because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · Daifuku Co., Ltd., a material handling company, stated some measures and strategies to overcome the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic in their annual report 2020. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain distance from one another required a new approach to service activities for systems post-delivery. Accordingly, they are working hard to use the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and information and communications technology (ICT) to establish material handling systems that never stop or that will be able to recover immediately even if blocked. They will continue to support stable operations of customer facilities by introducing new technologies and services, including remote operation, while ensuring the lives, safety and health of employees and their families. Likewise, many companies have started introducing new technologies and methodologies in the COVID-19 situation to remain better positioned in the market. Losses during this period can be overcome in the future by taking this slowdown to redesign and refresh the business processes and logistics operations. OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE MARKET IN COVID-19 SITUATION Market players have an opportunity to upgrade their operations and prospective for the betterment of their companies. Automation is the key to success in this unpredictable world. Different crises, labour shortages, natural disasters impact a lot on every industry. So being one step ahead of time and understanding the market well will ensure the success of the market player. In this COVID-19 pandemic, many companies adopted process automation and customization as an opportunity to survive and grow. Some of the instances are mentioned below: § Automation to overcome labor shortage: Though recent events have worsened the labor gap, the labor shortage is not new for many industries, as more workers retire and skills requirements increase. Automation offers solutions to some of these problems. Automated Process Equipment Corporation provides solutions and services for bulk material handling companies to overcome labor shortages during this pandemic situation. Super sack handling, accurate measuring, automatic routing, easily reprogrammable controls and electronic record keeping are solutions that will improve automation and reduce the dependency on the massive number of laborers. § Customized Solutions for Booming Market: KWS Manufacturing Company Ltd. partnered up with Coperion K-Tron to provide the solution for the world’s most significant high-density polyethylene and polypropylene suppliers, which is used in consumer and industrial goods ranging from plastic bags and bottles to N95 medical masks and face shields. Due to the increased demand for polyethylene and polypropylene, expanding the client’s extrusion line required new loss-in-weight additive feeders and a mixing screw conveyor. KWS and Coperion K-Tron sales and engineering teams collaborated to ensure the extrusion line expansion would be successful. IMPACT ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND COVID-19 has disrupted the supply chain on a global scale. International trade restrictions and customs regulations resulted in longer wait times and a lack of capacity for long-haul deliverables. During this pandemic, the demand for bulk material handling solutions decreased because of the limited access to customers’ sites. This affected both capital and aftermarket sales throughout the year. Most of the companies faced challenges in managing on-time project completion and order deliveries. However, many companies took this to redesign their operation and logistic models with digital capabilities to increase operational efficiency and effectiveness in such a period. For instance, · ThyssenKrupp AG Company adopted the digitization of their business processes and supply chains in 2019-2020. Their focus was on the introduction of automation solutions which included the new mobile app “Paperless”. This app allowed digitizing day-to-day processes in warehouses such as bookings, preparation of work schedules and material identification. It also created the conditions for using other automation solutions, such as driverless transportation systems, to be used in a new state-of-the-art logistics center for ThyssenKrupp Schulte. Such positive changes and automation in the supply chain will enable the companies to emerge stronger and supply chains that are more resilient to future disruptions. CONCLUSION The global bulk material handling system market suffered losses during the recent period because of COVID-19’s negative impact on global demand and supply chains. Yearly sales for the market-related products got hampered due to limited access to customer’s sites. But relaxation in lockdown regulations after few months helped the market to somewhat come back on track. However, many companies started building new technologies to overcome supply chain problems in pandemic situations. They adopted digitization and automation in day-to-day business processes and supply chains. Although it will take some more time for companies to come back on track, this period made everyone realize the need for up-gradation in many business aspects.

How COVID-19 Impacted Additive Manufacturing Market in Pharmaceutical Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Additive Manufacturing in Pharmaceutical Industry The outbreak of Coronavirus has caused many industries to change the way they operate, and manufacturing industry is no exception. Also, the rise in demand of antiviral drugs was observed along with decrease in demand of drugs for other ailments. The European Fine Chemical Group estimated that 80% and upward of chemicals used in the making pharmaceuticals sold in the Europe region originate from China and India. Everyday millions of patients rely on drugs manufactured and supplied by pharmaceutical industries; shortage of any particular medicine may create chaos. Manufacturers served throughout the pandemic and are still operating to prevent such turmoil. IMPACT ON DEMAND The Coronavirus led to the widespread closure of local manufacturing plants and companies and has badly affected the various region of world. Due to extensive lockdown and isolation the economic activity has affected adversely which has impacted the global economic activity. Manufacturers began to diversify sourcing of raw materials along with investment in spreading production in different regional markets instead of concentrated markets such as India and China. Likely to be long term effect is reindustrialization of pharmaceutical production in countries such as the United States and Europe in order to minimize dependency on imported products, this would lead to rise in demand of additives in above mentioned countries. Moreover the increasing cases of COVID-19 have also paved the way for enhanced demand of additives but due to movement restrictions same decrease in sales was recorded. For instance, · In January 2021, BASF SE had no indication of any major effect on the global activities and supply chain of our BASF Nutrition & Health sector comprising of BASF Pharma Solutions, BASF Animal Nutrition, BASF Human Nutrition, BASF Enzymes and BASF Fragrance Ingredients owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. · In 2020, DuPont de Nemours, Inc. recorded decrease in earning of excipients sales, which belonged to Nutrition and Biosciences segment. This thus signifies that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses a life threatening effect to various types of patients already suffering from several kinds of disease among the most recent known COVID-19 pandemic. Thus the demand of effective treatment option that is antiviral drug has enhanced the supply for short term. This thus demonstrates that COVID-19 is accelerating the demand of additive market. PRICE IMPACT Throughout year 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic caused economic turmoil globally, the pharmaceutical industry in particular had to adapt quickly to minimize the impact on its operations and supply chain of drugs worldwide. Raw materials and additives rates have increased due to reduced supplies and delayed manufacturing plans, and shut downs in some countries. The price of additives and raw materials has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic due to numerous air travel restrictions and inefficiency to supply products. For instance, · The shortage has begun to affect API and bulk prices in trades, the average increase in India was reported to be about 10-15%, and is estimated to reach 50% in some cases. · WACKER Chemie AG a Germany based company is about to raise its prices for dispersions and solid resins in Europe, Africa and Middle East region stating that this measure has been necessitated by rise in price of raw materials cost in market. · The Edelweiss Securities predicted that COVID-19 pandemic would cause severe supply disruptions in pharma sectors causing earing cuts by 15%. But globally pharma companies are performing well, in short term most companies are expected to bounce back in five years. This thus signifies that due to COVID-19 pandemic the price of additives used in pharmaceutical productions have increased due to Coronavirus outspread. IMPACT ON SUPPLY As COVID-19 spreading began in China the surge of medicines has been enhanced due to increasing patient’s volume which put a pressure over the supply of pharmaceutical additives. Moreover the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the business environment for more organizations across the globe. Around the world many companies are hugely reliant on supplies and production in China. However the market players are adopting several initiatives in order to maintain a continuous supply of additives. For instance, · As per the news of September, 2020 this has been suggested that Sandoz is working closely with the Association for Accessible Medicines in order to enhance the global pharmaceutical supply chain. · In 2020, Ashland which is an essential supplier, their supply chain continued to operate safely receive, process and ship specialty products during COVID-19. · As per November 2020 Merck KGaA a company specialized in additives and chemicals stated that it continued to leverage their business continuity plans including risk mitigation activities, accelerated investments and adjusted production schedules for few high demand products. · According to the news of March 2020, Roquette Frères stated that they are working in order to minimize the COVID-19 impact on its supply chain. · As per February 2020, FDA closely monitored supply chain with the possibility of potential disruptions in supply of critical medical products in the U.S. Manufacturers alerted FDA about recently added drugs in drugs shortage list. · DFE Pharma claims that their continued production and supply during the pandemic was not affected in Netherlands, India, Germany and New Zealand. Apparently due to COVID-19 effects on global transport industry the shipping companies are charging more than usual. This suggests that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses threat for maintaining a continuous supply chain of additives while initiative adopted by market players allows them to manage a continuous supply chain. STRATEGIC DECISIONS OF MANUFACTURERS Additive manufacturing companies are taking so many strategic decisions in order to cope up with the current scenario of COVID-19 pandemic. The companies engaged in manufacturing of additive manufacturers are collaborating so as to accelerate the market growth. Companies have already taken several kinds of strategic initiatives in order to cope up with the Coronavirus situation. Strategic initiatives by market players such as Dow, Ashland, Kerry, BASF SE among others in the market will help them to expand their network and supply chain. This in turn will lead to increasing product sales and hence will enhance the overall company’s revenue. For instance, · In May 2020, Dow during the COVID-19 pandemic was working closely with government officials and medical professionals, using guidance to adjust plans as warranted. · In April 2020, the U.K.’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) published guidelines on Exceptional GMP flexibilities which allow manufacturers to increase their production capability to minimize risk of product shortage using quality risk management principles and to navigate through international travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. · In April 2020, Lubrizol enabled 1 Billion bottles of hand sanitizer globally every month to increase its Carbopol polymer production, which is used as a thickener. The increasing demand and sales of antiviral drugs are fuelling the growth of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market. Thus, companies operating in the additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market are adopting several strategies, including agreements, market expansion to enhance their business. These strategic decisions by the market players helped them to attain a lucrative growth even during the COVID-19 pandemic. CONCLUSION As the pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders but still manufacturers of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical are able to manage their stocks. The demand and supply of pharmaceutical products increased rapidly due to given medical emergency. Drug shortage caused due to the pandemic is expected to remain limited this way for a short period, also if the pandemic exceeds the shortage of pharmaceutical APIs, chemicals and additives may persist on causing shortage of supply in long run. This would also effect complications in distribution especially due to population movement restrictions across the globe. Various manufacturers are continuously engaging in constantly monitoring the supply chain so as to attain a lucrative growth. The activities and certain changes from COVID-19 would reduce dependency of private pharmaceuticals on alone suppliers such as China.
How COVID-19 Impacted on Drone Taxi in Semiconductors & Electronics Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Drone Taxi in Semiconductors and Electronics Industry The spread of COVID-19 has entirely changed people’s life. COVID-19 originated in the city of Wuhan, China, in 2019 and has been continuously spreading all over the world since then. It has been spread to more than 180 countries. The U.S. tops the list, followed by India, Brazil, U.K., and others. As of 16 August 2021 WHO reported 226.24 million positive cases worldwide of which 4.65 million patient has lost their life to the virus. On a positive note, 204.59 million patients have recovered, and 5.63 billion doses have been administrated globally. The pandemic has put the lockdown, travel ban, and business shutdown in most countries, highly impacting the global economy. Due to the pandemic, major industries faced serious disruption such as a break in the supply chain, shut down offices and manufacturing units, and many more. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented on a global level. It has greatly affected the aviation industry. The drone taxi market is still in its formative stages; hence, it relies on a shared flight model to make the economics work. After COVID-19, the drone taxi industry has experienced an impressive growth trajectory. Due to the increase in road traffic, the demand for drone taxis has risen tremendously. STRATEGIC DECISION BY MANUFACTURERS AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES AFTER COVID-19 Post-COVID manufacturers are taking many strategic decisions to get back their original business place in the market. The companies are conducting many research and development activities to improve the technology involved in drone taxis. Thus, the companies are bringing more advanced technology to increase their market share and being recognized by the clients. For instance, · In July 2021, according to INDIA TODAY, Airbus announced the launch of its new urban mobility copter. The new copter can carry 2,310 kg, the highest take-off weight of a fully electric VTOL aircraft with a distributed drive system. The electric aircraft is 4-seater which the helicopter division of Airbus manufactures. Thus the company has successfully brought forward a flying taxi for the customers · Tecnalia, a Spanish company as launched its first Spanish uncrewed air taxi. The air taxi can carry up to 150 kilograms and travel in approximately 15 minutes urban distances of up to 15 km at around 90 km/h alternating between 100 and 300 meters. The vehicle consists of an aerodynamic cabin of 1.8 by 2 meters with a door and window and four drones placed in the upper and lower part of the ship. Thus the company has come up with the new air taxi which can provide customers with similar experience to that of a car or a bus By looking into the rising demand for drone taxis, the government is also taking different initiatives to boost the market's growth. For instance, · In December 2020, according to Intelligent Transport, The General Office of the State Council of China issued a circular to develop urban air mobility (UAM). The letter urges the development of policies and standards which will regulate the industry and encourage progress. The State Council’s circular also highlighted the potential application of firefighting UAVs. Thus the government is supporting in innovation and applications of our UAM technologies, specifically for aerial firefighting IMPACT ON DEMAND The technological developments hold a promising future for the drone taxi market whereby cities are expected to adopt next-generation transportation systems using automatic systems. Cities worldwide face transportation challenges due to the increasing road traffic, which causes major problems for mass transportation. Thus due to the increase in road traffic problems, the demand for drone taxis is increasing in the market. Also, the urban air mobility program has raised the demand for drone taxis. Many companies are developing a drone taxi and transportation hub for urban and sub-urban areas to solve this problem. For instance, · In December 2020, according to Simple Flying, Boeing, a leading company to develop electric air taxis, came up with its flying taxi. The company has developed an autonomous, multi-rotor passenger air vehicle (PAV) in the Boeing NeXt urban air mobility program. PAV is an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft designed to lead the next generation of on-demand mobility. Thus the company has brought electric air taxis which is safe and reliable for their customers · In November 2020, German aviation start-up Lilium announced the launch of the first U.S. transportation hub for their flying taxis. The companies’ vision is to roll out a network of air taxis in various cities, with an app to hail the vehicles similarly to Uber. Their electric Lilium Jet is five-seater and speeds up to 300 kilometers per hour or 186 miles per hour. Thus the company will expand the flying taxi market in the U.S. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN Although the demand for the market has increased tremendously after the corona period, it has hampered the market's supply chain. Many electronic components like microcontrollers, chips, sensors, and others are needed to produce a drone taxi. In the lockdown, these electronic component manufacturing companies were shut, leading to the material shortage. This shortage has hampered the growth of the market. Most of the electronic component manufacturing companies are from the Asia-Pacific region. Still, due to the corona outbreak, these companies were shut down, leading to a shortage of raw materials.

How COVID-19 Impacted on VVT and Start-Stop System Market ?
Impact of COVID-19 on VVT and Start-Stop System in the Automotive Industry Overview: VVT and start-stop systems are systems in most modern cars that stop the engine when the vehicle is stationary or idling, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption. When the brake is released or the clutch is engaged, the engine is restarted. The VVT & start-stop system detects when the vehicle is stationary or out of gear and automatically stops it. The latest automotive innovations, such as intuitive infotainment, self-driving capabilities, and electrification, rely more on software quality, execution, and integration than on mechanical ingenuity. This transformation is occurring at such a rapid pace that automotive OEMs and other industry stakeholders are finding it difficult to keep up. The exorbitant cost of integrating and upgrading consumer features for various end services. China is the epicenter of the COVID-19 virus had put on hold the various business operating segment leading to a downfall for the sale of three-wheeler electric vehicles. People have also become more cost-conscious as essential items have become more important. The electric three-wheeler companies have been working hard for their customers during the lockdown period. With deliveries and lease becoming critical during the pandemic and the lockdown, the maker stepped up and made sure deliveries of essentials were done. In a nutshell, all of these factors would lead to an increase in the demand for EVs because they provide environmentally friendly alternatives as well as lower delivery costs. For Instance, The Indian automotive sector was already struggling Before the Covid-19 crisis. During 2019, it experienced an 18% decrease in overall growth. Steps to be taken by the vendor to boost the sale: The EV vehicle maker has to form a business partnership with leading e-commerce companies like BigBasket, Ecom Express, Udaan, MilkBasket, and others that can help in providing electric mobility stack as a service. Fleet owners and ecommerce players have realized the benefits of EV for their inter-city movement. The Lack of retail finance is a factor that had a negative impact on sales for electric three-wheelers. Due to Covid-19, many financiers financing electric three-wheelers (E3Ws) faced difficulties in the recovery of the loans extended, as the passenger 3W movement had halted or drastically reduced during the lockdown. In fact, last-mile connectivity for public transport, such as metro trains and buses, has been a key driver of demand for e-rickshaws and when public transport had been shut, this has severely impacted the movement of E3W and earnings of the drivers. As a result, financiers have been in “recovery mode” and reluctant to extend new loans. Therefore, the role of financing should be the priority to boost the sale by the vendor In order to meet the increased demand for last-mile deliveries, the vendor should work on the software capabilities of the vehicle on the backend to enhance the capabilities of the battery pack with the controller to enable better range and load-bearing capacity for the vehicles. Further, with essential practices of social distancing, the company realized that fleet owners will now need connected vehicles to manage their fleet. The company has been working around adding several software features on the backend that helps the fleet managers to streamline their operations and be prepared for eventualities. The vehicles should be inbuilt with new features for optimizing fleet operations with real-time updates, updates on battery operations, and preventive maintenance. Impact on Demand & Supply Chain: During the short term, there could be difficulty in fundraising for startups in the mobility and battery compound segment. However, M&A/fund raising activities are likely to pick up in the medium and long term considering these startups are crucial for developing the EV sector. As people become more homebound in the "new normal," there is a greater demand for home delivery of everything from groceries to essentials to non-essentials, which is driving up demand for e-cargo fleets. The people have become more aware of the importance of clean energy and environmentally friendly alternatives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. People have also become more cost-conscious as essential items have become more important. COVID had the greatest impact on three-wheeler sales, which fell from 140,683 units in fiscal 2020 to 88,378 units in fiscal 2021. Two- and four-wheelers, on the other hand, bucked the trend, registering impressive growth during the year, albeit from a small base. However, due to increased demand for e-commerce delivery, there is a significant increase in demand for three-wheelers designed for cargo, particularly electric ones. Electric three-wheelers are being introduced into cargo operations by e-commerce companies and their logistics divisions. The demand for three-wheelers for passenger transportation will remain low for the next two to three months, owing to lower movement of people in urban areas, a lack of preference for shared mobility, and the non-operation of mass transit such as metro and trains, which typically required three-wheelers for the last mile. The COVID-19 can have both favorable as well as unfavorable bearing on the EV segment with short to -mid-term favorable bearing includes Recent BSVI regulations increasing costs of petrol and diesel vehicles, making EVs possibly slightly more attractive, shift from the usage of public transport and shared mobility resulting in a surge in demand of two-wheelers including EV. An increase in demand from the rental/subscription model for EVs may also be possible. Whereas in the long term the favorable conditions include a shift in consumer mindsets toward eco-friendly vehicle models. Conclusion: COVID-19, though ravaged the automotive market in an unprecedented manner during April 2020, which was possibly the first time in history that car manufacturers clocked 'zero sales' but had some silver linings. In many ways, the valuation of EV startups could become more attractive in the short term compared to -pre-COVID-19 era. The major auto players have announced an increase in spending on the EV segment. While COVID-19 might impact the lending capability of financial institutions in the short- to mid-term, funding from strategic tie-ups and investments could possibly increase to achieve the pre-set goals and targets. The pandemic has caused widespread disruption to supply bases, assembly plant closures, and a further shift to declining consumer demand. The reliance on Chinese imports, recent Bharat Stage VI Regulations (emission standards established by the government to primarily regulate the output of air pollutants from petrol and diesel vehicles), and restrictions on migrant laborer movement have all contributed to this situation.
