Auto Mechanics in the US
Operators in the Auto Mechanics industry provide mechanical and electrical repair and maintenance for a variety of vehicles, including cars, trucks, vans and trailers. Over the five years to 2019, the industry benefited from consumers and business increasing frequenting industry establishments. This is largely due to rising disposable income levels and corporate profit during the period, which enabled more consumers to forego do-it-yourself repairs and enlist the services of industry operators. However, rising income levels carry the threat of consumers opting to replace their older vehicles rather than repairing them. Over the five years to 2024, industry growth is anticipated to slow, despite continue growth in disposable income levels enabling more consumers to frequent industry establishments.
