Automotive Aftermarket in North America

As Quoted In Tire Business

Gains will be fueled by an expansion in size and increasing age of the light vehicle fleet, which includes more vehicles in prime aftermarket service age: 5 to 10 years for many components.

Demand to rise 3.2% annually through 2016

The North American light vehicle aftermarket is projected to rise 3.2 percent annually to $85.5 billion in 2016. Gains will be fueled by an expansion in size and increasing age of the North American light vehicle fleet, which includes a growing number of vehicles in prime aftermarket service age: 5 to 10 years for many components. Additionally, as the regional economy improves and unemployment rates fall, average miles driven per vehicle are expected to climb along with travel to and from work. Continuing improvements in vehicle component durability will prevent aftermarket demand from rising more rapidly, as will increased monitoring of vehicle systems by onboard electronics.

Mexican aftermarket to grow the fastest

Among the three North American markets, the Mexican automotive aftermarket will post the fastest advances, averaging 4.8 percent per annum through 2016. Aftermarket sales will be bolstered by Mexico’s rapidly expanding vehicle park and the country’s rising affluence, which will lead to greater demand for more expensive, fullyfeatured vehicles and associated aftermarket products. While the US will record the slowest gains, averaging 3.0 percent per year through 2016, the $10.0 billion increase in aftermarket demand will represent four-fifths of the region’s total sales growth from 2011 to 2016.

Best opportunities to be in electronic and exterior and structural products

The fastest growth among the major aftermarket product segments will be registered by electronic products. Suppliers of items such as controls, modules, and sensors will be the beneficiaries of the further development of advanced vehicle systems and the increasing amount of electronic content found in light vehicles. The second fastest growing aftermarket segment will be exterior and structural products (the vast majority of which consists of replacement tires). Gains will be bolstered by increased demand for higher priced items like performance tires and advanced glass products, including solar control windows and electrochromic mirrors. As a result, demand for exterior and structural products is expected to surpass that for mechanical components in 2016, making it the largest single aftermarket segment.

Sales of electrical parts are expected to climb at a somewhat slower pace, limited by the long useful life of many products in this segment and stabilizing raw material prices, which will reduce inflationary pressures and market increases in dollar terms. Mechanical products will be the slowest growing aftermarket segment. Gains will be tempered by the rising quality of these already highly durable components.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $73 billion automotive aftermarket in North America. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by country (US, Canada, Mexico), product (e.g., mechanical, exterior and structural, electrical, electronic) and service performer (e.g., professional, DIY).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market shares and profiles 47 industry participants, including Johnson Controls, Federal-Mogul and Autoparts Holdings.
