OEMs have offered additional accessories in vehicles that may be modified in the aftermarket to suit consumer needs for comfort and convenience in automobiles, which serves to fuel the growth of the automotive aftermarket. Aftermarket demand is driven by changing lifestyles, rising standards of living, and increased disposable income. Increased disposable money may lead to a more lavish lifestyle, necessitating the purchase of luxury vehicles. Due to the growing demand for automobile aftermarket products, an increasing number of millionaires around the world are designing or remodeling their distinctive vehicles.

The massive increase in global vehicle registrations has put pressure on OEMs to employ global platforms and modular architecture more quickly. As a result, the number of vehicles manufactured will rapidly increase, boosting the demand for spare parts and other auto-service facilities. This expands the market for automotive aftermarket companies.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

Vehicles are becoming more equipped with sensors as technology advances, resulting in better driving behavior and less wear and tear on brakes and other vehicle components. This makes component replacement difficult and hinders the growth of the automotive aftermarket. The cost of vehicle modification is excessively exorbitant for the bulk of the population. Consumers who are comparatively upper-class and prepared to pay a premium price for vehicle parts are sold as a premium option. However, if this service is used more regularly, the price will have to drop for it to be affordable to the average person. Automobiles are supplied with ecologically friendly components in various countries to reduce carbon emissions and maintain the climate. Consumers are unable to select whether to replace parts that generate more carbon and harm the environment regularly. As a result, the vehicle aftermarket is constrained by these reasons.

MARKET OPPORTUNITIES

The growing demand for electric vehicle (EV) aftermarket services is a significant opportunity in the global automotive aftermarket market.

The adoption of electric vehicles has been growing exponentially over the last few years and is expected to fuel further during the forecast period and result in the increasing need for specialized aftermarket services and parts specifically designed for electric vehicles. As per the statistics of the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global stock of electric vehicles reached 10 million in 2020 and is forecasted to reach 145 million by 2030. The increase in the sales of electric vehicles is expected to offer opportunities for aftermarket providers to develop and offer EV-specific products such as battery maintenance services, charging equipment, and software updates. In addition to that, the EV aftermarket is predicted to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period and boost the overall automotive aftermarket market expansion.

MARKET CHALLENGES

The rising complexity of modern vehicles poses a major challenge to the automotive aftermarket market.

In the current era, vehicles are being equipped with technological developments such as sophisticated electronics, complex software systems, and numerous sensors. According to a Deloitte report, the modern vehicles contain nearly 100 million lines of code, which is more than some of the modern aircraft. This growing complexity is demanding specialized diagnostic tools and expertise, which has become difficult for independent aftermarket providers to catch up. This is also resulting in higher costs for training and continuous investments in new equipment, which is deterring the smaller market participants and limiting the global market expansion considerably.

In addition to the above, high competition from OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts, regulatory changes, and compliance requirements, supply chain disruptions, the shortage of parts, and technological advancements that require specialized knowledge and tools are a few of the major challenges to the automotive aftermarket market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Automotive Aftermarket Market

One of the most vulnerable sectors to the ongoing COVID-19 spread is the automobile and transportation industries, which are currently experiencing unprecedented uncertainty. COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the supply chain and product demand in the sector. The industry's main issue has changed from supply chain interruptions in China to a general reduction in demand for aftermarket products. Demand for commercial vehicle parts is expected to drop as all non-essential services are shut down.

Furthermore, changes in consumer purchasing behavior because of the pandemic's uncertainty could have a significant impact on the industry's near-term growth. Meanwhile, the aftermarket players have already been hampered by a liquidity shortage and cash crisis, which is projected to worsen in the coming months. Furthermore, consumers are predicted to choose private transportation in the aftermath of the pandemic. However, financial discrepancies are projected to stymie the purchase of new vehicles; commuters are likely to opt for second-hand cars due to price concerns.

The demand for aftermarket auto components for vehicle maintenance is predicted to rise as used car sales increase. On a larger scale, the epidemic is projected to prompt several entry-level aftermarket players to resurface in emerging countries. The market is also projected to fluctuate based on demand from different consumer categories, as each class section has its preferences for car repair and maintenance.
