Since 2006, the entire automotive supply chain has been struggling to keep business running. It was not all doom and gloom since 2006, though, and some wholesalers did manage to capture market share. Industry conditions will improve through 2016, but recovery will be slow. Consumer preferences will continue to shift toward fuel-efficient vehicles, with the main difference being that, in the next five years, many US automakers will begin manufacturing green vehicles domestically, giving consumers a wider range of choices. Downsizing will continue, mainly in the form of inefficient companies exiting the industry.
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 and tires.
