Auto Mechanics in Illinois
The Auto Mechanics industry in Illinois has exhibited strong growth over the five years to 2017. Rising per capita disposable income and corporate profit has encouraged consumers to opt for professional repair services as opposed to do-it-yourself (DIY) repair, bolstering industry demand. Moreover, drivers, who neglected nonessential repairs and maintenance during the previous five-year period, were more likely to release pent-up demand for industry services in the current period, in response to rising consumer confidence. Over the five years to 2022, the industry is forecast to continue growing, due to similar trends. Consumers are expected to spend more on maintenance and repairs in response to rising disposable income levels. Additionally, over the next five years, new car sales are expected to fall in light of rising interest rates, which is expected to benefit industry operators.
