Based on the report, the global market is segmented into major distribution channels such as OEM and aftermarket. Among them, aftermarket is leading the market with major revenue generation in 2022. The market's growth is attributed to its wide supply chains with major distributors and retailers and the advent of various e-commerce stores that are making it easier to purchase desired car accessories from the comfort of home. For instance, there are approximately 1800 online auto parts and accessories stores worldwide. On the other hand, the OEM segment is expected to grow with a higher CAGR due to the high focus of companies to offer in-built accessories and to comply with road safety measures and other related government regulations. The aftermarket is projected to record a moderately high revenue contribution in the global market, attributable to the constant need for vehicle servicing and replacement of accessories. Moreover, the aftermarket also offers accessories for vehicles that do not have in-built exterior and interior accessories. According to the findings, nearly 70% of vehicle owners who customise their vehicles focus on exterior upgrades, suggesting that a large portion of car enthusiasts do indeed add exterior accessories to their vehicles.

Furthermore, there are some common regulations and standards that may apply to exterior car accessories across the globe. Many countries have safety standards that exterior car accessories must meet to ensure they do not pose a hazard to other vehicles or pedestrians. For example, grille guards or bull bars may be subject to impact testing to ensure they do not interfere with the deployment of airbags or damage other vehicles in a crash. Some exterior accessories, such as LED lights or light bars, may be subject to regulations regarding their brightness, color, and placement on the vehicle. This is to ensure they do not blind other drivers or cause confusion on the road. Some exterior accessories, such as exhaust systems or air intakes, may be subject to emissions regulations to ensure they do not exceed maximum allowable levels of pollutants. In some cases, regulations may dictate how certain accessories must be installed on a vehicle. For example, roof racks or cargo carriers may need to be securely fastened to the vehicle to prevent them from becoming loose or detached while driving. Covid-19 Impacts: The COVID-19 outbreak has affected various industries worldwide. Governments across the world implemented strict lockdown measures and social distancing norms in order to restrict the swift spread of the pandemic. Manufacturing facilities around the world were shut down during the initial stages of the pandemic. Moreover, the economic crisis after the pandemic might lead to a significant delay in the commercial roll-out of the manufacturing industry. Small and medium-sized companies are the backbone of technology providers and are witnessing a steep drop in revenue since the emergence of the pandemic in 2020. COVID-19 began in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and has since spread rapidly throughout the world. The US, India, Brazil, Russia, France, the UK, Turkey, Italy, and Spain are some of the worst affected countries in terms of confirmed cases and reported deaths. The COVID-19 has been affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Shutdowns of various plants and factories have affected the global supply chains and negatively impacted the manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of products in the global market. As automotive manufacturers have resumed operations due to steadily rising automobile sales in countries with a limited number of COVID-19 cases, the market is likely to recover during the forecast. Automotive sales in major markets like the United States, China, and India increased due to the demand generated by the post-COVID-19 economic recovery. Furthermore, the manufacturers are implementing contingency plans to mitigate future business uncertainties and retain continuity with clients in the critical sectors of the automobile industry.
