Despite Automotive Industry Challenges, Demand for Chemical Products Remains Strong

While the automotive market has experienced production delays due to the pandemic and ongoing supply chain shortages, demand for motor oils, lubricants, windshield wash, cleaners, and other chemicals remains strong.

Even with the accelerating growth of electric vehicles, those vehicles also have a need for coolants and windshield wash. With more than 290 million registered vehicles in the U.S., it’s critical that repair centers, convenience stores, and other organizations involved in selling or distributing automotive products develop strong partnerships with automotive chemical companies that can help meet consumer demand.
