Market Overview

The automotive aftermarket refers to the secondary market for vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment, and services that are used in the repair, maintenance, customization, or enhancement of vehicles after they have been sold by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). In other words, it encompasses all products and services related to automobiles that are not directly supplied by the vehicle's manufacturer. Several factors contribute to disruption in Germany's automobile business, including readily shifting consumer needs, severe competitive dynamics, and digitalization. The rapid adoption of smartphones has expanded the availability of transportation services such as hailing, as well as important information that influences buyer purchase decisions. In addition, technological advances by market players in industries such as lighting and electrical components, turbochargers, and high-capacity engines are likely to drive automotive aftermarket expansion within Germany. Additionally, to enhance environmental sustainability and safety, vendors and manufacturers offer complex and innovative approaches. Furthermore, digitization of services and sales for product delivery, as well as digital distribution portals for aftermarket products in collaboration with global automotive suppliers, are projected to attract significant investment from industry players.

Driving Factors

The age of cars is the key reason driving the growth of the automotive aftermarket industry. Older vehicles typically require regular servicing and repairs due to overtime wear and stress on their components. The aftermarket industry advantages from steady demand for substituting parts and services. Combustion systems, tires, and brakes are a few automotive components that get worse with time and use. The need for various parts to be changed in older vehicles serves as a driving factor for the market. In response to the need for ecologically friendly vehicles, aftermarket accessories that include catalytic converters and electronic chips that enhance fuel economy on older vehicles have increased in popularity. Owners are particularly keen on adding new amenities to their older vehicles, which is a major driver of the automotive aftermarket industry's growth.


Restraining Factors

One of the most significant issues is the increasing variety of modern automobiles. Cars require specific skills and equipment for servicing and repairing due to the complexity of their electronic systems and parts, which are becoming more technologically advanced. Due to the complexities of constantly changing technologies, independent services, and aftermarket vendors may find it difficult to remain updated and make investment decisions in gear and skills.


Market Segmentation

The Germany automotive aftermarket share is classified into replacement parts, certification, and distribution channel.

  • The turbocharger segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

The Germany automotive aftermarket is segmented by replacement parts into turbochargers, body parts, lighting & electronic components, filters, brake parts, exhaust components, wheels, battery, and others. Among these, the turbocharger segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. These turbochargers serve to meet government guidelines for reduced emissions of hazardous gasses such as nitrous oxide and CO2 in automobiles. Recent improvements in brake components, body parts, and automobile tires, together with the introduction of variable nozzle technology turbocharger, are gaining favor in the market. As a consequence, of the growing demand for high-power automobiles and severe pollution rules in Europe, turbochargers have increased in popularity in LCV, HCV, and passenger cars.
