Automotive Aftermarket: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Defined as the secondary market of the automotive industry, the automotive aftermarket is witnessing stable growth supported by the expanding global vehicle fleet and the rapid rise in the average age of vehicles on road. Demand for replacement parts and accessories in the aftermarket are hugely reliant on vehicle wear and tear trends. The increase in vehicle miles travelled drives the need for replacement of mechanical parts such as brakes, clutch systems, engine parts, and axles, among others. The rise in the number of automobile accidents, especially collisions, is benefiting demand for replacement external structural components like bumpers. The increase in electronic content per car and the resulting electronic failures in keyless vehicle entry systems and entertainment systems are also spurring opportunities for growth in the aftermarket.
The legislation of strict fuel-efficiency and vehicle emission laws worldwide is forecast to benefit demand for performance components and specialty aftermarket equipment and accessories. The growing focus on environmental health will spur adoption of eco-friendly, recycled auto parts and components. Automotive aftermarket in North America is expected to witness increased sales of accessories for comfort and appearance such as custom seats, mats, hands-free phone kits, bluetooth car kits, and auto-repair tools. In Europe, on the other hand, product solutions that enhance the performance and agility features of vehicles, such as, steel-belted radial tires will witness the highest adoption. In the appearance chemicals aftermarket, growth will be supported by the increasing popularity of pre-owned cars and leased automobiles. Popularity of pre-owned vehicles is increasing in the United States and Europe guided by the tough economic climate and the ensuing consumer preference for cheaper options such as purchasing used cars. The growing market for pre-owned cars is resulting in consumers investing both time and money in protecting the re-sale value of cars, thus resulting in increased sales of vehicle detailing and appearance products in the aftermarket.
