India’s Car Aftermarket Overview

————————————————————————————————————————————–

India’s car aftermarket is totally fragmented unlike markets in countries like the US and the annual market size of car detailing including car care items is estimated to be 375 crores in FY 2014-15 from 200 crores in FY 2013-14 and is expected to be 1200 crores by 2020, growing at 30% CAGR.

There are no national level players of any significance in car detailing except for 3M and a few organised players are beginning to emerge. In accessories and car care items, there are online players like Autofresh.in and carindiaaccessories.in displaying products of 3M India, Formula1, Meguairs, Angelwax, Collinite, Optimum Polymer technologies, ArmorAll, Carzspa. Reliance Autozone is trying to build a brick and mortar.

Apart from the above options for selling the car care products, there are three major E-Commerce players who display the car care items, namely flipkart, Amazon and snapdeal. The Car Care market has very attractive dynamics with a gross profit of 50% available to retailers.
