Covered in this report
The automobile aftermarket is defined as the market that offers the products and services related to the activities taken by consumers after purchasing a car. In this report this includes car maintenance, repair, car beauty and sales of accessories. The cars in this report continued to be defined as personal cars for private individuals. They are divided into basic passenger cars (saloon cars), SUVs (sport utility vehicles), MPVs (multipurpose vehicles) and cross-type passenger cars.
Basic passenger cars: used for the transportation of personnel and luggage; the driver is usually the central focus, with an emphasis on driving and riding comfort. Saloon cars generally come in two-box configuration (hatchback) and threebox configuration (sedan).
SUV: combines the comfort of a saloon car with off-road capability, functional versatility and a two-box configuration (hatchback).
MPV: combines the comfort of the saloon car with the space of a tourer and can be used to transport goods like a van. These vehicles usually come in a two-box configuration. MPVs are targeted mainly at household users, and the majority are manufactured based on passenger car platforms.
Cross-type passenger vehicles: also known as minibuses. This type of vehicle can transport either passengers or goods, and is therefore known as a cross-type, usually single-box. Mintel divides consumers into three groups based on their MHI (monthly household income) and their residential areas.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Terence Zhou, a leading analyst in the Motor sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Consumers’ planned car usage length has extended to 6.4 years in 2018 from 5.9 years in 2017, which means increasing demand for maintenance and repair. More and more females and young males are taking up sole car maintenance responsibility within the household, driving the need for information channels such as online forums. 4S stores are challenged by perceptions of low value for money and lack of service varieties.
