The global automotive screenwash products market size was valued at USD 1.86 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 1.98 billion in 2023 to USD 3.03 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.

Automotive screenwash products, also known as windshield fluids, are liquids used for front windscreens to clear the vehicle’s glass from various contaminants. The screenwash liquids are usually a blend of surfactants and alcohol, which allow the windscreen of the vehicle to be clean and scratch-free from debris.

The demand for automotive screenwash products has been steadily growing as vehicle users are purchasing these products to protect their windscreens and improve visibility while driving in various conditions. Additionally, the increasing variety of products in windscreen fluids, such as all-season fluids, de-icing fluids, water-repellent windshield washer fluids, and many others, has further encouraged consumers to buy various screenwash products that suit their needs, further contributing to the market’s growth.


Government-Imposed Temporary Lockdown Reduced On-Road Vehicle Presence, Hampered Market Growth

The spread of the COVID-19 virus in 2020 resulted in higher fatalities. To reduce the further spread of the virus, governments of various nations announced countrywide lockdowns. This resulted in a lower presence of vehicles on the road, further reducing vehicle usage. Additionally, temporary shutdown of vehicle manufacturing facilities worldwide further reduced the demand for these products during this period.

The post-pandemic situation, however, created a favorable environment as various businesses started resuming their operations at partial or full capacity, depending on the region. Moreover, the increased presence of on-road vehicles post-pandemic helped the market recover. Additionally, increasing vehicle production rate and sales in 2021 further helped speed up the recovery of the market during the post-pandemic period.


Introduction of Eco-Friendly Windshield Wiper Fluids as an Alternative to Traditional Chemical Wiper Fluids

Various manufacturers in the market are introducing bio-degradable and eco-friendly windscreen fluids for vehicles as an alternative to the traditional screenwash fluids, which contain harmful chemicals and use high amounts of plastic packaging for the liquid. This contributes to the increase in toxic waste in the environment. For instance, in January 2022, Canada-based company EcoTank announced an eco-friendly way to package windshield washer fluid and introduced eco-friendly alternatives to traditional chemical-based wiper fluids.

Increasing awareness among consumers in various areas has further influenced the market players to introduce eco-friendly options for their customers to minimize their impact on the environment. The awareness of eco-friendly automotive screen washer fluids is likely to grow during the forecast period as more manufacturers are introducing their eco-friendly alternatives in the market.

Growing Number of On-Road Vehicles and Increasing Demand for Vehicle Cleaning Products to Drive Market Growth

This market is highly dependent on the presence of on-road vehicles. The increasing number of on-road vehicles will result in the greater consumption of screenwash products, thereby driving the automotive screen wash products market growth.

Increased consumer spending and rising disposable income will also indirectly contribute to the market growth. As the percentage of car ownership rises, it is likely to fuel the market progress as the number of on-road vehicles will increase in various parts of the world. Furthermore, increased vehicle production across the world has also contributed to the market growth.

Rising Consumer Awareness Regarding Vehicle Care Products to Drive Market Growth

The greater focus of consumers on protecting their vehicles from various debris has positively influenced this market. Consumers expressing the need for screen wash fluids suitable for harsh weather conditions have led to the delivery of de-icing windshield washer fluids in the market. Similarly, the development of bug repellent, water repellent, and many other such variations of wiper fluids has contributed to the product’s high demand as well as the market’s expansion in various regions. Consumers now have a variety of options to choose from according to the weather conditions or personal preferences of windshield washer fluids for their vehicles. These factors have influenced the expansion of the market in all areas.


Higher Amount of Chemical Contamination Caused by Wiper Fluids Might Hamper Market Growth

The high amount of chemicals present in automotive screenwash products is highly toxic, further harming the environment due to its dangerous by-products. Additionally, increasing bulk production of screenwash fluids further pollutes the clean waterbodies and harms the ecological systems. Increasing consumer awareness of the harmful effects of windscreen fluids on the environment has led them to reduce the usage of chemical-based washer fluids, of which the market is currently comprised. Thus, lower awareness of biodegradable and eco-friendly windscreen fluids and adverse effects of traditional automotive screenwash products might hamper the product demand during the forecast period.


By Type Analysis

Wide Availability and High Reliability Boosted Consumer Preference for Standard Wiper Fluids

Based on type, the market is segmented into standard wiper fluid, de-icing washer fluid, resistant washer fluid, and others.

The standard wiper fluid segment dominated the market share in 2022.

As standard wiper fluids are one of the most popular products used for automotive screens, consumers can choose from a wide range of variants. These liquids are also highly reliable, further contributing to the segment’s growth.
