The European Wear & Tear Parts Market, 2012 - 2022: Market size, market forecast and recommendations

Summary

The European wear and tear market has seen volumes moderately rise in recent years, as the effects of the recession and subsequent European scrappage schemes have rippled through the aftermarket. Overall values also suffered over the same period. That has now started to change.

The exhaust system market has started to show an increase in volume, growing by 10.2% between 2012 and 2017. The catalytic converter market has also moderately increased in volumes, being affected by reduced quantities of precious metals within them, which influences their longevity; the overall market has risen by 7.4% between 2012 - 2017. Brake part volumes are increasingly influenced by the improvements in friction materials that have been made, increasing lifespans and reducing replacement rates.

Finally, the windscreen wipers market has grown by 9.3%. In many ways this has been influenced by the strong upturn in the European new cars market, which has seen the number of new registrations grow strongly year on year.

While motorists in some markets are still reluctant to spend, there is an opportunity in the market for shock absorber manufacturers able to offer a recognizable branded product at a reasonable price, as many consumers are choosing mid-range components that represent an acceptable compromize on quality, safety and price.

Also, as it will take some time for all of the vehicles equipped with standard batteries to fall out of the parc, there will be considerable scope for small independent garages and dealers to capture market share in the sale and fitment of these lower value components, while VMNs and certain larger garage chains capture the more complex stop-start battery market.
