With lower interest rates, rising ownership of used cars, increasing disposable income, etc. the market has witnessed an increase in demand for used car loans in the country. Choosing a used car loan is a wise decision that provides buyers with good value for money. With rising disposable income and urbanization, the customers no longer choose to keep a car for several years and always prefer to upgrade with the latest models. Companies such as CarDekho, CARS24, Spinny, OLX Auto(Cars), Droom Credit, and others have launched digital platforms for used car buyers and sellers to provide servicing and warranty facilities, as well as an easy instant and paperless loan experience, so that a potential buyer can simply ask the dealer for loan offers on any pre-inspected car and the dealer can also check the buyer's eligibility with multiple banking partners on the spot with a few clicks. People can also begin the loan application process in seconds by uploading KYC and other required documents to these platforms.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak in the second half of March, FY2020, and the subsequent restrictions imposed as a result of continuous lockdowns and disruptions in India's travel and transportation networks, there has been an increase in the population's need for personal vehicles such as used cars. However, the used car market experienced supply constraints because people did not sell their vehicles as they did prior to the pandemic, affecting exchanges and demand for used car loans. The COVID-19 pandemic also had an impact on the country's per capita income, so drivers and small-scale fleet management companies were looking for more cost-effective investments, such as purchasing used cars as a means of small business. This mode proved to be very cost effective for many small logistics and transportation business owners, as well as those who experienced losses in their other businesses. Due to financial constraints, these small-scale fleet management companies preferred to purchase used cars through used car loans during the pandemic.
