Market Overview

Long Term Growth in Unit Shipments as well as Revenues of Performance Parts Propel the Exhaust Components Aftermarket Forward

Growth in the North American components aftermarket will be driven by emission regulations that require the replacement of failed or worn out components. While long lasting OE installed parts impede the growth of the aftermarket, the adoption of inspection and maintenance programs in an increasing number of states will drive unit shipments. Further, the transition toward direct-fit components from universal components is expected to expedite revenue generation for the exhaust aftermarket. In the standard exhaust components aftermarket, brand awareness is low and consumers settle for what is available at a reasonable price. In contrast, the performance exhaust segment is characterized by high levels of customer involvement and branding plays a key role in determining purchase decisions. Thus, the performance segment holds enormous potential as the lack of technology standardization gives aftermarket manufacturers the liberty to introduce new features and induce greater product differentiation.
