2014 North American Category Management Report—CV Driveaxles
Total manufacturer-level revenue will increase from $ million in 2013 to approximately $ million in 2020, with rising sales of higher-priced new constant velocity (CV) driveaxles driving most of the growth.
Unit shipment demand will grow by less than 1% annually, and all of the growth will take place in the new CV driveaxles segment with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of%. The unit shipment demand for remanufactured parts will decline by % annually.
Manufacturer-level average prices will increase by approximately % annually, well below the overall rate of inflation. The growth of large distribution and the commoditized status of CV driveaxles will make it harder for manufacturers and remanufacturers to serve this market profitably.
Two-step retail distributors such as AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts/Carquest, and O’Reilly Auto Parts make up the largest distribution channel in the United States (% of units and revenue), but traditional 2- and 3-step warehouse distributors (WDs) still purchase the most parts in Canada and Mexico.
Cardone Industries remains the market leader, but its position is under increasing threat from the Chinese suppliers Wonh Industries, GSP North America, and Heri Automotive because these suppliers offer lower prices and longer payment terms for new CV driveaxles.
