Playing a big part: Growth in disposable incomes has fuelled demand for new vehicle parts

The Motor Vehicle Parts Retailing industry has steadily grown over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 2.1% over the five years through 2018-19, to reach $5.4 billion. Unlike many other retail trade industries, operating conditions across the industry have remained largely sheltered from global economic uncertainty. During periods of uncertainty, consumers are more likely to delay purchasing a new motor vehicle, and instead buy new or used parts to continue maintaining their existing vehicle, which supports industry demand. The industry is expected to continue growing steadily in the current year, with revenue anticipated to increase by more.
