Auto Glass Repair & Replacement Franchises
The Auto Glass Repair and Replacement Franchises industry has experienced strong demand over the past five years. Broken or damaged windows in cars and trucks often must be repaired fairly quickly because the damaged glass may interfere with the safety of the driver and the vehicle. The costs of said repairs are often covered by auto insurance providers, which helps shield the industry from sudden declines in its customers' disposable income levels. Nevertheless, the industry still tends to benefit from a stronger economy as individuals are less inclined to put off repairs when they feel strong about the state of their wallets. During the five-year period, the industry has done well to lure new entrants. Franchisees have offered price discounting to attract customers away from other establishments, often at the expense of average industry profit margins. While nonfranchise glass repair shops have to invest heavily in promoting their services, franchises benefit from co-op advertising on national and regional media for a comparatively smaller cost. The industry is expected to continue its growth over the five years to 2023, although at a slower rate.
This industry consists of establishments that engage in replacing, repairing and tinting automotive glass for passenger cars, trucks, vans and other commercial vehicles.
