Report Outlook

The global automotive aftermarket market size and share are expected to grow from USD 456.42 Billion in 2023 to USD 735.13 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

The market is predominantly influenced by the desire of car enthusiasts to improve various aspects of their vehicle's performance, including exhaust sound, speed, and appearance. Additionally, regulatory bodies like the Japanese Automobile Sports Muffler Association (JASMA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency oversee the compliance standards and environmental effects related to the functioning of automotive components.

Anyone who owns a vehicle or completes regular maintenance knows that each automotive system has a subsystem with its components. The exact number of parts in a vehicle varies widely from car to car, but an average automobile has thousands of parts, including screw components. Some automobile manufacturers design and develop universal components that fit every automobile. However, automotive companies typically change the design of their vehicles from year to year. Vehicle owners will usually have the same model and type that varies based on aspects like transmission and body style. So, where does the automotive aftermarket fit into the overall automobile sector landscape? What makes the aftermarket components unique from their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) counterparts? Let’s take a closer look!

The automotive aftermarket is the secondary parts market in the automotive sector. It deals with the manufacturing, distribution, and fitting of vehicle components, parts, and accessories after the sale of the automobile by the original equipment manufacturer to the consumer. In other words, aftermarket equipment is parts made by third-party companies based on the designs by OEMs. Aftermarket products are broadly classified into two categories: replacement parts and accessories. Replacement parts are developed to replace worn automotive parts, whereas accessories are largely meant for customer convenience, comfort, and safety. The desire among automotive owners to enhance vehicle performance predominantly influences the automotive aftermarket market growth.

Moreover, advancements in propulsion technology have generated various opportunities in the market. Nevertheless, concerns regarding high research and development expenses are anticipated to impede market growth in the forecast period. Automotive manufacturers encounter specific limitations in their manufacturing processes, with production costs being a significant constraint. However, certain automotive replacement parts, such as aftermarket filters, provide the opportunity to select a part that suits the conditions in which a vehicle operates.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

  • Diversification of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) into Aftermarket Operations

Original equipment manufacturers have progressively increased their involvement and focus within the automotive parts aftermarket value chain. This includes the establishment of their networks of repair shops that are not brand-specific. To compete with independent aftermarket players and retain customers within their networks for an extended period, major market players have introduced alternative service formats and secondary brands (such as VW Direkt Express) or remanufactured parts to align with the market's trend toward older vehicles. Additionally, OEMs are investing in efforts to optimize customer experience and introduce unique aftermarket service offerings. Leveraging vehicle connectivity, OEMs aim to retain customers and automate decision-making processes related to service and repair, showcasing a strategy to differentiate their aftermarket service offerings.

For instance, In their five-year development strategy, known as Push to Pass, the French automaker PSA has placed significant emphasis on the independent Automotive Aftermarket. Successfully extending several of its brands throughout the entire value chain and completing various acquisitions, PSA now holds shares in the distribution network, including Aramisauto, Autobutler, Distrigo, and Mister Auto. Through this approach, PSA aims to reach all consumers, irrespective of their car brand, age, or distribution channel. Other original equipment manufacturers, both premium and volume players, have followed PSA's lead, making them the primary drivers of market growth in

By Replacement Parts Analysis

  • The Tire segment held the largest revenue share in 2022

It is expected to lead the market in size and remain the dominant segment due to the comparatively low replacement cycle of tires compared to other component counterparts. The aftermarket replacement part suppliers include various accessory suppliers, lubricants, tire suppliers, and other component replacement suppliers.

The automotive industry is witnessing an uptick in demand for hybrid electric cars, which is likely to impact the demand for exhaust parts and specialized tools for these vehicles. This shift can be attributed to the rising prices of gasoline and petrol engine-based vehicles. The growth in disposable income for consumers in developing nations like China and Brazil is expected to influence the market's growth rate positively.

The increasing demand for vehicles is expected to drive sales in the automobile components market. Stringent global regulatory standards for car safety are projected to stimulate market economies. Leading industry players are widely adopting modern production technologies, such as 3D printing of automotive parts, to optimize production costs. The use of 3D printing enables efficient fabrication performance and reduces emission toxicity.
