Despite rising new motorcycle sales and discretionary income, the Motorcycle Dealers industry has struggled over the past five years. Revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 0.4% over the five years through 2014-15. Higher fuel prices have helped to limit the decline, as consumers have shifted away from purchasing new passenger motor vehicles in favour of more fuel-efficient vehicles such as motorcycles. Consumers working in agricultural industries have also demanded more all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) over the past five years, which has slightly offset the industry's falling revenue.
Companies that operate in the industry primarily retail new and used motorcycles. Other products sold include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and motorised scooters. Firms that retail motorcycle parts and accessories or provide vehicle servicing are excluded from this industry.
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.
