Following the recession, the entire automotive supply chain has been struggling as demand for motor vehicles has decreased alongside decreases in disposable income. Some foreign wholesalers did manage to penetrate the US market and capture market share, however. Industry conditions have improved in the five years to 2015 and are expected to continue improving over the next five years, but recovery will be slow. Consumer preferences will continue to shift toward fuel-efficient vehicles, and many US automakers will begin manufacturing green vehicles domestically, giving consumers a wider range of choices.
Companies in this industry wholesale a wide range of new and used vehicles, including automobiles, light trucks, motor homes, heavy-duty trucks, trailers and motorcycles. Automobile wholesalers do not sell motor vehicle parts or tires.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
