About This Statistic

This timeline shows the size of the US automotive parts aftermarket from 2008 through 2018. The automotive aftermarket parts market in the United States was sized at around 137 billion U.S. dollars in 2014.

U.S. automotive parts aftermarket

Following a period of economic instability, the automotive aftermarket parts industry in the United States is expected to benefit from increasing U.S. vehicle sales and thus continue to rebound. In 2014, customers in the United States bought just under 16.5 million vehicles, which is about 900,000 vehicles more than in 2013. The upward trend is further fuelled by the rising number of car owners who have been holding on to their automobiles for longer periods: The average age of a light vehicle in the United States stood at around 11.4 years in 2014, up from about 8.4 in 1995. In light of an aging vehicle fleet and a growing number of vehicles that require servicing, the growth in demand is projected to push the automotive aftermarket parts industry’s revenue up to roughly 150 billion U.S. dollars in 2016.

The automotive aftermarket industry, which accounts for an estimated third of the U.S. automotive parts industry, can be divided into two main categories: accessories and replacement parts. While accessories are typically designed for add-on after the original assembly of a vehicle, replacement parts are built or remanufactured to replace original equipment parts that have become damaged or worn. The industry is highly fragmented and comprises a great variety of products, including exterior and structural products, appearance chemicals, mechanical products, electrical products and electronic products.
