Impact of Covid-19 on the Africa Used Trucks Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had a decelerating effect on most industries across Africa, where the Used Truck Market was no exception and witnessed a downfall amidst the crisis. Owing to the severity of the virus, governments of different countries across the region had to impose stringent movement restrictions & frequent lockdowns to curb the spread of this dreadful disease.

Consequently, the leading players in the market faced several unprecedented challenges associated with the demand & deliveries of used trucks. While the governments banned travel & imposed cross-border trade restrictions, the supply & import-export of used trucks were affected severely. Additionally, as most operations were suspended and put on a temporary hold, the market further witnessed a downfall in its growth amidst the crisis.

However, with the gradually declining Covid-19 cases, restrictions were uplifted & business operations got recommenced as usual. As a result, the market players resumed the deliveries, sales, and export & imports of used trucks to meet the burgeoning end-user requirements, which, in turn, enabled to market to regain its usual growth pace.
