This research service presents an overview of the automotive maintenance and repair industry in the United States. Service channels will evolve from 2015 to 2021 as small repair shops close and are replaced by franchised chains and mass merchants. Overall growth will be driven by an increasing average vehicle age. However, shops capable of repairing and maintaining foreign nameplate vehicles will enjoy higher growth than those specializing in domestic brands as the vehicle population shifts in favor of Asian automobiles. This analysis includes findings from Frost & Sullivan’s annual vehicle owners’ maintenance survey, combined with secondary data and insights from the analyst team. It gives a forecast for service centers by type, vehicles in operation by nameplate, and total automotive parts stores, as well as insights into consumer behavior and key conclusions.
