China Automotive Distribution and Aftermarket Report, 2016-2020

China Automotive Distribution and Aftermarket Report, 2016-2020

Given fiercer competition, rising operating costs, huger inventory pressure and other factors, as well as the impact of the emerging e-business mode, the automotive distribution industry is facing an enormous challenge. In 2015, the number of 4S shops in China reduced by 920 year on year, and in the future the number will shrink further, while automotive e-business, automobile supermarkets and other multi-brand automotive business models will grow up.

Amid the weak development of the automotive distribution industry, the automotive aftermarket, covering automotive finance, auto repair & beauty and used cars, has sprung up with higher profit margins. In 2015, the overall size of Chinese automotive aftermarket reached RMB2,154 billion, of which RMB850 billion and RMB755 billion stemmed from automotive finance and auto repair & beauty respectively.

In recent years, Chinese car dealers have only garnered the car sales gross margin of less than 5%, with an overall downward trend; whereas, after-sales services enjoy the gross margin of above 40%.

In the face of lower gross margins, massive inventory and the gradual decline in economic benefits, some dealers have to seek further development through mergers and acquisitions, or expansion of the automotive aftermarket, or the combination of online and offline business, or layout in the field of new energy vehicles.

M & A: In 2016, China Grand Auto acquired Baoxin Auto Group, Dalian Zunrong Auto Trade Co., Ltd., Peng Feng Group and other car distribution groups to expand sales network and further consolidate its leading position.

Automotive Aftermarket Layout: In 2015, Sinomach Automobile and Federal-Mogul co-founded Federal-Mogul CAIEC Automotive Technology Services (Beijing) Co., Ltd. to establish a car repair & maintenance-based business network in the automotive aftermarket and an online + offline standardized ecosystem centering on ""products + services"", as well as provide comprehensive maintenance solutions for medium and high-end brand car customers.

Internet + Layout: In 2015, China Grand Auto cooperated with Alibaba, yiche.com and autohome.com.cn to set up an O2O platform serving consumers in car selection, loans, insurance, delivery, maintenance, replacement, second-hand car loans, and among others.

New Energy Vehicle Layout: In 2014, PANGDA Automobile Trade Group set up a joint venture – Pangda- BAIC New Energy Vehicle Sales Co, Ltd. with BAIC. In 2015, PANGDA Automobile sold about 14,000 new energy vehicles. In addition, PANGDA Automobile also erected an electric vehicle street and an electric vehicle test drive field in Wufangqiao, Beijing, a new energy vehicle hypermarket in Tianjin, a new energy vehicle leasing & sale experience center in Tangshan city, and a new energy vehicle supermarket in Shenyang city.
