The European Service Parts Market, 2012 - 2022: Market size, market forecast and recommendations

Summary

Overall volumes within the European service parts market grew at over 8% between 2012 and 2017, with certain components - notably cabin filters and glow plugs - seeing very strong growth (up by about 14% and 18% respectively over the period). Overall values grew at around 16% over the same period. Volumes in the service parts market are expected to continue to grow in the run up to 2022, with overall volumes growing at over 10%.

Passenger car engine oil market will continue to evolve over the next five years to 2022. Ever stricter emissions regulations, manufacturers’ desire for improved durability and motorists’ pursuit of greater fuel economy will continue to drive demand for higher value engine oils, which use higher quality base oils, include innovative new additive ingredients and which offer lower levels of viscosity. As a result, the lubricant is becoming an increasingly important component within the engine. Working closely with oil and additive companies is essential because the interaction between the oil and the components can make the difference between an optimized system and one that functions poorly.

Market for service parts including vehicle filters is also being affected by changing technologies, with newer vehicles often featuring in-built filters, whilst the number of older vehicles in the parc is also driving the demand by requiring regular filter changes. The major drivers of growth for the filters market is the increase in the production of vehicles, an increasing focus of the vehicle owners on preventative maintenance, the increasing average age of vehicles in operation and the increasing number of miles driven per vehicle. In this market, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter and cabin air filters are some of the major segments of automotive filters.

However, the European economy is now in a stable, although low-level growth cycle, and, as a result, people are again buying new vehicles (certain markets have experienced record sales in recent years), and motorists are beginning to drive more, with annual mileages driven increasing. Oil volumes grew at about 7.5% between 2012 and 2017 as a result, and the expected future growth of the European vehicle parc to 2022 will help oil volumes to continue to grow over the next five years.

The report The European Service Parts Market, 2012 - 2022: Market size, market forecast and recommendations, summarizes the state of the European service parts market. Like all aftermarket components, the service parts market was adversely affected by Europe’s economic recession, with some markets experiencing lasting effect as a result of austerity. During times of recession, people will typically opt to repair their cars rather than replace them, seeking to pay cheaper prices for the components that are fitted as they do. Cheaper components are often less durable so volumes would be expected to increase over the longer term. The markets for components such as engine oil continue to be affected by a number of factors, including emissions regulations, fuel economy and durability. This report outlines the major issues currently affecting service parts in the European service parts market.
