Over the past five years, the Motor Vehicle New Parts Wholesaling industry has encountered vastly different demand forces from its two major markets (i.e. motor vehicle manufacturers and the service parts aftermarket). Demand from motor vehicle manufacturers has declined significantly as consumers and businesses have increasingly purchased smaller, more fuel-efficient imported motor vehicles. High petrol prices, a strong Australian dollar and a reduction in motor vehicle tariffs have driven this shift in motor vehicle purchasing.
Industry operators are primarily engaged in wholesaling new motor vehicle and motorcycle parts and accessories. These include batteries, car audio systems and motor vehicle and motorcycle tyres. Parts and accessories are mainly sold to motor vehicle manufacturers, parts retailers and mechanics.
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.
