The Ducker Advisory Team provides clients with the highest quality insights and intelligence they need to make strategic investment decisions in shifting market landscapes. Sub-segments covered within the Automotive Aftermarket have included performance/ enthusiast products, accessories and channels, traditional offerings, fleet tracking and advanced communications.

 

Channel Shifts to Online Focus

2020 closures and consumer demand preferences have shifted many automotive aftermarket product sales to e-Commerce channels, which is projected to remain a structural GTM shift beyond COVID-19 impact years, driven by changing consumer preferences and increased familiarity with online retailers.

 

Performance and Enthusiast Market Growth

Performance and enthusiast segments have remained stable and grown in select categories. The lower cost of ownership for the light truck/Jeep segments including off-road, outdoor-lifestyle enthusiasts, has benefitted specialty suppliers in this segment.

 

Aftermarket Telematics and Technology Solutions Increase

Consumers have continued to require advanced technology solutions on aging vehicles due to safety and security, convenience, and regulatory/insurance driven requirements. Driven by this, small and medium-sized fleets have continued to focus more on asset optimization and tracking.
