The Auto Parts Wholesaling industry experienced a great deal of revenue volatility over the five years to 2016 due to the economic downturn. A lack of consumer enthusiasm for new automobile purchases curbed demand for automobile parts from automakers, while automakers cut production in light of repressed sales. As the entire automotive sector grows steadily in line with a generally improving economy, the industry will benefit. Additionally, IBISWorld expects the industry to continue its upward trend as demand from car and automobile manufacturing improves. Moreover, due to stricter emission requirements and increased ecofriendly initiatives, automakers are demanding lighter and more efficient auto parts, which are anticipated to also spur industry demand. As a result, industry revenue is expected to increase over the next five years.
