Although there is considerable regional variation in replacement rates for many different components, one common theme has negatively affected part replacement across all European countries: the high cost of living.
With fuel prices on the increase and with many countries still struggling economically, a large number of motorists have reduced their vehicle use and deferred annual servicing in order to save money. It is expected that this trend will continue to have a major effect on the market over the next five years.
By focusing on the sale of high value products in mature markets rather than high market volumes, working with distribution channels to highlight the importance of proper vehicle and part maintenance, and highlighting the importance of quality and longevity over price to the consumer, companies can combat this trend of austerity.
