Auto Parts E-commerce Continuing to Hit on All Cylinders
Merger and acquisition activity within the auto aftermarket continues to showcase robust growth driven by strong industry fundamentals. The U.S. light vehicles in operation and miles driven continue to increase across an aging fleet, resulting in increased wear and tear that is driving the purchase of aftermarket products and parts. Consumers continue to spend to maintain their vehicles even in a downturn, providing stability to the aftermarket industry. Over twice as many used cars (~39 million 1) are sold each year in the U.S. compared to new cars (~17 million 1), providing scale to the aftermarket industry. Both sellers and buyers of used cars turn to the aftermarket to repair, upgrade and personalize their used car purchases. Aftermarket part suppliers can generate outlier valuations by establishing leading direct-to-consumer and order fulfillment infrastructures to capitalize on these strong underlying industry fundamentals.Click Here to Continue Reading Lincoln's Perspective
