Used Car Parts Wholesaling in the US

Increasing per capita disposable incomes among consumers have had mixed effects on demand for industry products over the five-year period. Higher incomes increased some consumers' demand for used auto parts since less-affluent car owners can afford more used auto parts as their incomes rise. In addition, owners of vintage vehicles spent more on their automobiles, which often require the use of used auto parts. Conversely, rising incomes encourage many consumers to purchase rebuilt, remanufactured or new auto parts at the expense of used parts. Industry revenue is expected to continue to grow slowly over the next five years. Per capita disposable income growth will continue to encourage some consumers to buy used auto parts and others to purchase higher-quality auto parts.

Companies in this industry wholesale used auto parts. Industry operators also dismantle vehicles for the purpose of selling used auto parts to individuals, car mechanics and others. This industry excludes companies primarily engaged in selling scrap metal, tires and tubes as well as companies engaged in the refurbishing, rebuilding or remanufacturing of car parts.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
