Market situation


Automotive spare parts market was split into two main segments: 

  • first assembly parts
  • and aftermarket.  

The aftermarket, in turn, was divided into: 

  • segment of parts which manufacturers sell under their own brand  
  • segment of specialized manufacturers 
  • and independent segment, which is composed of independent from car manufacturers distribution channels (wholesalers, shops, independent garages, car centres, etc.). 


Car manufacturers vs. independent spare parts manufacturers 




Manufacturers of automotive spare parts are at the same time suppliers of parts for car manufacturers and to independent distribution chains.  80% of parts used for the first assembly come from independent suppliers,and only 20% are produced by car manufacturers themselves, and those are mainly construction elements of the vehicles. 


Most parts offered by car manufacturers in their authorised service stations are parts which come from independent manufacturers, only sold under the brand of a car maker.  Actually they are the same quality parts, as so called cross references, offered by independent garages.  The customer is able to get the parts from three sources: directly from the distributor, via a shop or an independent garages.  


Market share by distribution channels of automotive spare parts: 


Inter Cars operates in the segment of new parts (and in a very small part in the segment of remanufactured parts) delivered mostly by independent manufacturers to repair garages, which compose around 92% of total number of garages in Poland [source:  SDCM].
