Although in Jamaica, one drives on the left hand side of the road, the United States remains an important source of
automobile parts and accessories. Industry experts estimate that between 10 and 15 percent of Jamaican automobile parts
and accessories market is sourced from the U.S. Other important source countries for parts and accessories are
Taiwan, Panama, Canada and China. Although China seems to be a good source for low priced products, some importers
are cautious about importing from that country because of distance and quality concerns. In general because of language
and quality considerations, the United States is the favored source country for a wide variety of accessories such as alarm systems, car exterior cleaners, upholstery & carpet cleaners, car covers, and rims.
