The Japanese car care market is divided into two segments: DIY/retail stores and DIFM/service centers.

Currently the market is dominated by interior segment Japan As more people own cars, there is a growing demand for car care products to maintain and improve the condition of their vehicles, particularly the interiors which are exposed to wear and tear over time due to The COVID-19 pandemic has increased awareness of the importance of hygiene and cleanliness, leading to greater demand for interior car care products such as disinfectants, air purifiers, and upholstery cleaners.
