Automotive repair

The auto repair industry is comprised of various companies that provide vehicle maintenance services such as garages, general repair shops, and automotive detailing. In the United States, the number of registered motor vehicles is on the rise and the most recent estimates suggest that the average amount of money Americans spend on car maintenance and repair is also increasing every year. These trends indicate that the automotive repair industry has room for growth. It is estimated that the revenue generated by the automotive repair industry will continue to proliferate in the coming years.

U.S. automotive repair sector forecasts

There are many sectors in the U.S. automotive repair industry. Routine services such as oil changes, tire repair, and air conditioning, as well as non-routine services such as rust-proofing and exterior painting are all considered part of the repair industry. Forecasts indicate that body, paint, and interior repair revenues could grow in recent years. Other sectors are also projected to grow over time as well. However, the total revenue generated by this sector is expected to be lower than that of the paint and exterior sectors.
