Affect the normal operation of the industry
The raging Covid-19 has plunged the global economic environment into depression. The influence of Covid-19 on Automotive Body Filler industry will involve all major links and entities in the industrial chain. The management efficiency of the company has declined, people's travel has been restricted, production plans have been seriously hindered, network expansion has been delayed, marketing has been delayed, market sales have declined, and the income of the company and employees has declined. The impact of the epidemic on automotive body filler industry depends on the prevention and control effect of Covid-19.
Downstream demand decline in a short time
For the Automotive Body Filler market, the most direct impact is undoubtedly the sharp decline in sales in recent months. Because of the greater risk of Covid-19 infection, people prefer to stay in a safe place and reduce the frequency of mobility. Therefore, most people choose to reduce travel, which reduces the collision probability of vehicles, and the demand for car body filler also decreases. In addition, at the beginning of the epidemic, most auto repair centers were closed, which led to the depression of the downstream industry. As the market of Automotive Body Filler was mainly driven by the downstream, it had a great impact on the industry demand.
It is relatively cheaper to use Automotive Body Filler
Because the price of Automotive Body Filler is reasonable, and only a few preparations and tools are needed. Traditional maintenance methods require special and expensive tools, while car body fillers only need simple hand tools (such as some plastic spreaders and some sandpaper) to complete the work. Body filler can be a good tool to repair automobile body damage, but it requires users to master the correct use method and have enough patience. In order to obtain the best effect, Automotive Body Filler should be used in combination with the traditional dent.
Automotive Body Filler can reduce working hours
If used correctly, Automotive Body Filler can reduce the maintenance time, and usually requires much less experience and skills. Just repair as many original damages as possible, polish the metal surface, and then cover the metal surface with filler, and then it can be cured. After drying and polishing, you can prepare primer and paint.
The number of people who choose to replace the body panel increases
With the thickness of sheet metal panels becoming thinner and thinner, fewer and fewer panels are repaired, and more and more panels are replaced. In fact, in today's efficient crash repair shops, the probability of replacement of body panels is increasing. If the number of panels to be repaired is reduced, this will affect the amount of filler required for the vehicle body.
Fluctuations in raw material prices
Raw material cost accounts for most of the production cost of Automotive Body Filler, and the fluctuation of raw material price brings uncertainty to Automotive Body Filler production enterprises, which directly affects their gross profit. For small and medium-sized enterprises without perfect supply channels, the price change of raw materials in the market will have a great impact on their procurement costs, and then affect the normal operation of the whole enterprise.Region Overview:
