Why is it important?

Each year, more than 5% of all vehicle accidents are caused by unperformed vehicle maintenance. These accidents result in 2,600 deaths, 100,000 disabling injuries and a financial cost of over $2 billion.

The good news is that simple and inexpensive steps such as properly inflating tires, securing gas caps, and routine check-ups can increase vehicle safety, benefit the environment, preserve precious energy resources, reduce cost of ownership, and help to protect the value of the motorist’s investment.

What is the Automotive Aftermarket?

The motor vehicle aftermarket industry is one of the largest U.S. employers and contributes 2.5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It encompasses all products and services purchased for light and heavy duty vehicles after the original sale, including replacement parts, accessories, lubricants, appearance products, service repairs, as well as the tools and equipment necessary to make the repair.

The Automotive Aftermarket represents:

  • $247.8 billion in annual sales (2.5% of GDP)
  • More than $60 billion in annual unperformed vehicle maintenance
  • 2.6% of the workforce (3.7 million jobs)
  • 11th largest contributor to the GDP
