Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive E-retail Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive e-retail market: Alibaba Group, Paytm, Amazon, and Flipkart.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: eBay and Snapdeal.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is rising popularity and subsequent sales of electric two-wheelers online. Rising levels of pollution from vehicles using internal combustion engines and fluctuating fuel prices have induced government bodies to push toward green modes of transportation, promoting sales of electric vehicles. Moreover, increasing dependence of nations on petroleum-based fuels cause a huge cost to the governments as they have to import fuel to meet their domestic demand.”

According to the report, one driver in market is convenience of booking a vehicle with minimum physical effort. About 95% of the global vehicle buyers conduct online research regarding prices, features, and user reviews of the vehicles before making a decision to buy. Most buyers would want to compare the prices offered by different dealers. Most of the automotive dealers have their information registered with online automotive search portals such as Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.com. The automotive e-retailers also help choose appropriate dealers, who offer vehicles with the desired features of customers is driving the market for automotive e-retail vendors.

Further, the report states that one challenges in market is rising stringency in two-wheeler emission norms. Rising levels of vehicular emissions have forced governments of emerging countries, such as India and China, to bring in stringent two-wheeler emission standards. Increasing stringency in emission norms is expected to drive the value of catalytic converters. Two-wheelers would be equipped with advanced substrates that are capable of controlling emissions for being compliant with the proposed emission standards. For instance, India is planning to implement Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) by 2020. Emission standards are regulated for both two-wheelers and three-wheelers in India. Addition of substrates and other emissions control equipment is expected to drive the price of two-wheelers by about $75-$90 in 2020.
