Increase in average age of passenger cars will upsurge parts and accessories replacements
With passenger cars emerging as favourable means of transport, the average miles driven per vehicle has increased over time. This increase in miles driven per vehicle is closely associated with more wear and tear of parts, which in turn requires timely maintenance and repair. Moreover, the quality of road infrastructure has a significant impact on the life of a vehicle and its parts. A pothole can cause a severe impact on tires or can cause wheel rim damage.
The pits on the road could also lead to premature wear on shocks and struts, suspension damage, steering system misalignment, exhaust system damage or engine damage. In some countries of ASEAN there is increasing vehicle parc and these countries have poor quality road infrastructure. As a result, more wear and tear occurs thus requiring the need for replacement of parts. This particular factor is driving the growth of the ASEAN automotive aftermarket.
The aftermarket includes various interior and exterior passenger car accessories such as fancy dashboards, seat covers, pedals, dome lights, LED lights, gauges, spoilers, wheel rims, light bars, stop and tail lights, mirrors, stickers, number plates etc. These components have limited lifespan and are constantly evolving according to growing consumer demands. As a result, the ASEAN automotive aftermarket is driven by innovation in accessories and parts.

- Increasing age of passenger cars and significant need for replacement of parts, repair and maintenance is driving the ASEAN automotive aftermarket
- Demand for aesthetics, infotainment and comfort features in passenger cars is driving the ASEAN automotive aftermarket
