United Kingdom Automotive Parts Aftermarket
About this product:
The automotive aftermarket spans the life of a vehicle between the end of the original manufacturers’ warranty and its end of life. In value terms, the aftermarket cost of maintaining Britain’s road vehicles is approximately $25 billion. This annual expenditure figure is not expected to change dramatically in the next few years, but how and where it is spent is of enormous importance to the local economy, because Britain is heavily dependent on road transport for economic and social reasons, and because the automotive industry and the garage trade are important employers of skilled labor throughout the country.
