Report Highlights

Despite only having a relatively small volume in 2011, shock absorbers are proportionally one of the most valuable components in the aftermarket. This component is expected to experience a decrease of almost 9% in sales by 2015, and while this equates to smaller losses than some other parts, the financial ramifications will be profound.

As developments progress in the improvement of the passenger car, batteries will be required to evolve in order to serve the needs of technological advances. These next generation batteries are expected to be fully integrated into the market within the next four to five years.

Of the wear and tear components expecting decline, the windscreen wiper blade market anticipates one of the smaller contractions. While this may appear positive, this particular component is relatively low cost and, as such, requires higher volumes in order to maintain market value.
