Automotive Aftermarket Specialists

Aftermarket Partners, Inc.
Industry Summary

The Automotive Aftermarket includes all products and services for light and heavy duty vehicles after the original sale - including accessories, repair products, appearance products, equipment, tools and service. Rapid industry consolidation over the past ten years has left fewer players in the market to supply multiple distribution channels. Manufacturing improvements in parts quality for new vehicles has contributed to flattening aftermarket sales growth and an increase in competitive distribution practices. However, more vehicles are being driven more miles, resulting in the growth of this market.
