Key Findings

  • 2014 was the year when the automotive industry started to turn a corner and see month after month of solid growth. However, it is worth remembering that it has taken years for the industry to work its way back to a position of strength – and there is still some way to go before the industry is back to the heights that it achieved in the pre-recession years.
  • Western Europe’s market is expanding off a low base, and the wider European market recovery remains weak and fragmented.
  • The growth that began in 2013 and continued through 2014, has continued into 2015. The European market has now stabilised, and most countries have now returned to growth. Full year figures show that the overall number of new registrations in Europe had grown for the 28th consecutive month.
  • The largest European markets ended 2014 strongly, with much of the recent growth being supported by increased registrations in Spain and the UK. Of the Leading Five, Spain recorded the largest increase (+18.1%), followed by the UK (+9.3%), Italy (+4.2%) and Germany (+2.9%), while France remained stable (+0.3%).
  • As the number of new registrations has recovered, so too has the European light vehicle aftermarket, which has continued to demonstrate year on year growth. Although levels of growth Y-O-Y fell from 4.2% in 2012/13 to 0.8% in 2013/14, growth levels are predicted to rise steadily in the five years between 2014-2019, with the most significant growth (2.9%) expected to be seen in 2016.
