See the big picture
With more than 500,000 companies, the multi-brand automotive aftermarket is a fantastic value chain of service and product providers who directly employ some 3 and a half million people. They constitute the backbone of the European automotive parts, service and repair industry.
All these operators ensure sustainable, safe and affordable mobility for 260 million motoring consumers and hundreds of thousands of transport operators – and this throughout the entire lifetime of the vehicle.
It is therefore essential that this aftermarket value chain is fully considered when assessing the competitiveness of Europe’s automotive industry sector. A robust legislative environment must be fostered in which all automotive players are able to innovate, compete and flourish.
