The Naked Truth: Auto Parts Statistics - 2017

The auto parts market is assessed by experts as a highly competitive niche, – as a promising area for development. However, there have been many changes in the market over the past 5 years.

Will the crisis flatten sales curves?

The state of the car market

The automotive market is going through hard times. According to the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine, the growth rate of the car park began to slow down after 2013. In 2013, the number of cars sold increased for the last time, the figure was 12.8%, in 2014 – increased by only 3.1%, in 2015 – by 2.5%, in 2016 the situation did not change. The All-Ukrainian Association of Auto Importers and Dealers notes that the average age of cars in Ukraine exceeds European indicators and, according to various sources, ranges from 19 to 21.5 years.

Against this background, it is doubly curious to know what is happening with the auto parts market, given that older cars need repairs on average 2-3 times more often than brand new ones.

We have collected statistics on auto parts for the last 3-5 years. This information will allow you to assess the state of the market and choose the direction in which you should move.

Fleet segmentation

Recent research by Research&Branding Group showed that 34% of Ukrainians drive Soviet/Russian cars, 27% of cars are over 15 years old.

65% of our compatriots preferred comfortable foreign cars. The Germans, French, Japanese and Koreans are in the lead.

Ukrainian cars

Depending on the country of production, the distribution of the share of cars in the car fleet looks like this:

  • Soviet/Russian cars – 34%
  • German – 16%
  • Ukrainian – 14%
  • French – 7%
  • Japanese – 5%
  • Korean – 5%
  • Chinese – 4%
  • Other foreign cars – 15%

Fleet segmentation by manufacturing country

Depending on the brand, the sympathy of motorists was distributed as follows:

  • Lada (VAZ) – 27%
  • ZAZ – 8%
  • Audi – 4%
  • Daewoo –  4%
  • Renault – 4%
  • Ford – 4%
  • Gas (Volga) - 4%
  • Moskvich/AZLK – 4%
  • Mercedes-Venz –  3%
  • Opel - 3%
  • Other cars – 35%

Fleet segmentation by car brand

Given the age and variety of cars on Ukrainian roads, the formation of the assortment should be approached with special responsibility. And someone, perhaps, should think about changing priorities.

But do not flatter yourself and switch to the supply of spare parts for domestic cars. The most reasonable solution for those who plan to start a business on the Internet, – launch of a multi-brand auto parts store, because two-thirds of our compatriots prefer foreign cars. Owners of functioning online stores should think about the choice and subsequent promotion of landing pages, the content of which is most relevant to the interests of users.
