Frost & Sullivan names its Top 10 aftermarket trends

Frost & Sullivan has released a new report addressing what it has determined as the Top 10 trends in the North American medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicle aftermarket.

Frost & Sullivan lists the top 10 trends as follows:

  1. Aging truck population
  2. Technician shortage outpacing demand
  3. Right to Repair – CSA creating opportunities
  4. Sustained remanufacturing growth
  5. Strong performance of OEM private labels
  6. TCO top of mind among fleets
  7. Opportunities in the aftertreatment products
  8. Truck parts e-commerce emerging
  9. Connected trucks improving maintenance
  10. Leveraging big data

In addition to its top trends, Frost & Sullivan also makes three big predictions for the future of the commercial vehicle aftermarket. They are:

  • The truck parts aftermarket will cross the $30 billion mark (manufacturer level) in North America by 2020. (It currently sits at $22 billion.)
  • Parts e-commerce will likely account for 4-5 percent of the truck aftermarket by 2020.
  • The OES channel will gain a market share of 1-2 percent on the strength of its private labels and telematics penetration.

Writing about the report on LinkedIn, Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Benson Augustine says, “The inter-dependencies of trends and their implications on the truck population ensure there will be a steady rise in revenues for the aftermarket. Taking the industry from $22 Billion in 2015 to $30 billion and beyond by 2022 catapulted mainly by aftertreatment and recurring replacement parts.”
