Increasing new parts sales have been reducing used parts sales in recent years, but the immediate future looks brighter for the Used Car Parts Wholesaling industry. As the economy picks up over the current five-year period, consumers will have more disposable income to either purchase used parts or new vehicles. New vehicles sales will serve as both a boon and a setback for industry operators, as the pool of potential repairs will grow, but new car owners may seek replacement parts from other industries. Over the next five years, the average fleet age of US vehicles will increase, potentially benefiting the industry.
