Automotive Aftermarket Batteries & Ignition Components: North America

This report forecasts North American demand for automotive aftermarket batteries and ignition system components in US dollars at the manufacturers' level to 2021. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of batteries; starters; ignition harnesses, wire sets, and cables; alternators; spark plugs; and other products such as points and condensers, relays, switches, transformers, and resistors.

In the scope of this report, "automotive" denotes light vehicles (ie, passenger cars, light trucks, and vans). The aftermarket represents parts and components installed after the vehicle has left the factory. However, remanufactured and rebuilt components are included in the scope of this report. For the purposes of this report, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts, original equipment service (OES) parts, and aftermarket parts are all included in the automotive aftermarket, as long as these parts are utilized to repair or upgrade light vehicles in use. Furthermore, sales are attributed to the final purchaser, rather than the installer.

Total demand is also segmented by performer as follows: professional and consumer/DIY (do-it-yourself).

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2006 to 2016; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2006, 2011, and 2016.
