Aging Vehicles to Drive Steady Unit Shipment Growth
This research service analyzes the brake rotors, drums and calipers aftermarket in the United States and Canada, which is expected to benefit from the increasing average age of vehicles in North America. The research service includes unit shipment and revenue forecasts, pricing, distribution channels, and market share analysis as well as market drivers and restraints. The base year is 2013, with forecasts from 2014 through 2020. Historical data from 2010 to 2012 is included. Products are segmented into economy and premium rotors, drums, and semi-loaded and other calipers. Future outlooks consider the affects of recent mergers and acquisitions in the aftermarket as well as the growth of direct sourcing and private-label programs.
Executive Summary—Key Findings
Increasing average age of vehicles will result in more passenger cars and light trucks needing brake repairs over the next 5 to 7 years, generating stable unit shipment growth.
•Unit shipments totaled X million in 2013 and are forecasted to reach X million in 2020, at a CAGR of X%.
•Revenue totaled $Xmillion in 2013 and is forecasted to reach $X million in 2020, at a CAGR of X%.
Drivers and Restraints
•Increasing average age of vehicles (currently X years in the United States) is the main driver of unit shipments. Calipers and brake drums are more likely to fail or expire at that age, and the vehicle may be ready for a third set of rotors.
•Increased private labeling and direct sourcing restrains price and revenue growth.
Revenue by Product Type
•From 2013 to 2020, the brake rotors segment’s share of revenue will decline slightly fromX% to X% as continued pricing pressures restrain growth.
•The brake calipers segment’s share of revenue will increase slightly from % in 2013 to X% in 2020.
•The brake drums segment’s share of revenue declines from % to %. Older pickup trucks enter the aftermarket in higher numbers to cushion the decline in the replacement rate.
•The average manufacturer-level price is expected to increase by only X% annually from $X in 2013 to $X in 2020.
•Increased use of direct sourcing and growth of private-label brands will suppress pricing for high-volume stock keeping units (SKU).
Distribution Channel Analysis
•Warehouse distributors (WD) represent half of the total revenue (X% of 2013 revenue), but large retail chains continue to gain share.
•Retail channels now constitute X% of revenue.
•Internet channels are growing quickly, accounting for about X% of 2013 revenue.
Market Share Analysis
•Brake Parts Inc., CARDONE Industries, and Winhere Brake Parts were the top suppliers in 2013.
