The technological advancement in the vehicle detailing service along with the rising automated car wash services in which polishing pads are used abetted the rising demand for PU pads in Germany.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 had a negative impact on the PU foam buffing and polishing pads in the Germany market due to the fluctuation in feedstock costs, disrupted production of upstream polyols like MDI, TDI. The huge drop in the consumption and production rate in the automotive industry reduced the requirement for PU pads in Germany. The general drop in procurements of non-essential commodities during the pandemic further weakened the Germany PU market. Despite these several reasons, the PU foam buffing and polishing pad market in Germany witnessed a revival in demand in the later stage of the pandemic as the DIY (Do-it-yourselves) movement picked up in Germany along with the rise of vehicular detailing.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War

The impact of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had severe impact on the upstream markets of PU pads. Germany is the highest exporter of polyurethane , the fluctuating cost of the crude oil and the energy crisis brought on by the ban on Russian imports of crude oil by Germany hampered several manufacturing units of PU and disrupted production of PU pads in the country. The energy crisis in Germany also impacted the downstream sector like automotive manufacturers and infrastructure sector further weakening the demand for PU pads in the Germany market.
