Automotive car care tools refer to car buffers, car polishers, dusters, wash brushes, car wash towels, mitts, squeegees, scrapers, and other accessories used in the maintenance and upkeep of cars. Socket and driver sets, tow straps, torque wrenches, mechanics tool sets, jack stands, hydraulic jacks, brake bleeding kits, and oils changing kits are a few other tools included under this. They are used for preventive measures and to keep cars in a usable and safe condition. Car care prevents unwanted accidents, improves the longevity, and enhances the aesthetic quality of cars, which in turn increases their resale value. The market for car care tools is directly linked to the market for cars. The more the number of cars produced, the higher the need to maintain them. Due to an increasing demand for passenger vehicles, there has been a surge in car production. Therefore, the market for automotive car care tools is also expected to expand over the forecast period.

The car care tools market is a part of the automotive aftermarket which provides after-purchase solutions. Economic uncertainty or certainty doesn’t affect the requirement for these products. Even if the economy is not performing well resulting in decreased production and purchase of cars, car care tools would still be required to maintain the old or existing vehicles. All the same, growth in the production of cars is likely to drive the trajectories of the automotive car care tools market. Production of cars is anticipated to increase with improvements in economic conditions and therefore in the purchasing power and standard of living of citizens. Consumers with higher disposable income require cars, and with their growing number, the need to preserve them also increases. Therefore, the production of cars is directly proportional to the expansion of the automotive car care tools market.

However, high costs act a major deterrent across the globe uniformly. Developing countries and less-developed countries are less likely to use car care tools due to their lack of awareness and purchasing power. The usage of certain car care tools also poses disadvantages. For example, frequent application of car polish degenerates the wax layering which ultimately makes the car more susceptible to corrosion.

Beautification could also lead to damage to the car’s exterior. Pressure washers could create dents on the car’s surface. All these factors are likely to negatively impact the growth of automotive car care.

The market for automotive car care tools can be segmented based on product type, vehicle type, and geography. The first division includes pressure washers & hoses, polish wax, clay bars & detailing products, sponges, steam cleaners, torque wrenches, tow straps, brake bleeding kits, and others. Pressure washers and hoses are used to clean the exterior of cars and to remove after-paint particles. Similarly, clay bars are employed to remove contaminants caused due to pollution post the application of paint. Torque wrenches are handy tools which help fasten or tighten nuts and bolts. Tow straps pull out cars which have been trapped in mud or sand. Brake bleeding kits get rid of air bubbles present in brake lines which block the brake fluid. 

By vehicle type, the market can be divided into the following categories: two wheelers, passenger cars, heavy commercial vehicles (HCV), and light commercial vehicles (LCV). Based on geography, the market is distributed over North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Latin America.

Key players operating in this market include Tools USA, GRASS LLC, and Carrand Companies, Inc. in the U.S., SWISSVAX in the U.K., Young’s Corporation in South Korea, and ECT Europe and CIHAN Auto in Germany.
