The Automotive Aftermarket: Definition

•The Automotive Aftermarket is a business sector centered around the servicing and maintenance of vehicles after their production and initial sale. It includes the manufacturing, remanufacturing, distribution, retailing, repairing, maintaining and installing of all vehicle parts, chemicals, equipment, and accessories, and the provision of these respective services to private, corporate or public users. It covers the entire lifecycle of the vehicle after its production.

•The Aftermarket provides the means of keeping vehicles on the road by granting individual or professional vehicle owners the possibility and the choice of servicing, maintaining, or customizing their vehicles in car manufacturers networks, independent chains or local workshops.

•The Aftermarket sector safeguards mobility in a safe, clean, affordable, sustainable and accessible way ensuring indispensable services for the individuals, society and the economy overall. It actively participates in sustainable development as repairing is more eco-friendly than replacing. •The Automotive Aftermarket is composed of spare parts manufacturers, garage and test equipment manufacturers, data and information suppliers, repair and service garages, vehicle body shops, as well as distributors of automotive parts, services and components.

•With the evolution of vehicle technology and mobility, the aftermarket becomes more connected and more sustainable, requiring more diverse talents and specialists.
