The Oil Change Services industry encountered a few bumps in the road over the five years to 2017. Despite the economic recovery, many consumers remained financially cautious and opted for the do-it-yourself method of vehicle repair. IBISWorld expects industry revenue to slowly increase over the five years to 2017. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is projected to continue trending upward as disposable income continues to improve and the automotive sector continues its revival.
Operators in this industry change motor oil, lubricate automotive vehicle chassis and provide other automotive repair and maintenance services, such as tire rotations and liquid flushes. Unlike operators in the Auto Mechanics industry (IBISWorld report 81111CA), companies in this industry do not provide mechanical or electrical repair and maintenance. Oil change service operators are also not involved in body, paint, interior or glass repair, nor do they offer car wash services.
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.
