Tires to Account for More Than 40% Worldwide Automotive Parts Aftermarket Sales: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Sep 28, 2021

The global automotive parts aftermarket is projected to progress at a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period of 2021-2031, as per latest analysis by Persistence Market Research.

Demand for automotive parts in the aftermarket is being aided by increased maintenance and repair activities carried out by vehicle owners because stock vehicle parts suffer wear and tear over a period of time. Air filters, fuel filters, and spark plugs, as well as brake pads, are more likely to be replaced at regular intervals.

Governments all over the world have enacted strict car emission standards that require product manufacturers to provide ecologically sustainable and high-performing parts for both, local and international markets, which is expected to drive demand of automotive parts. The automobile parts industry has seen significant expansion in recent years, with rising economies such as China, India, and Brazil expected to drive worldwide market growth.

Market players are rapidly innovating and bring in new, advanced parts into the aftermarket:

  • In June 2021, Michelin introduced new winter tires for trucks, named “Michelin X Multi Grip”. These tires deliver better performance and ensure maximum safety in extreme weather conditions such as snow- and slush-covered roads as well as wet roads.
