In repair: Growing disposable income will increase consumer demand for industry services

Auto Mechanics in the US

The recession led to a drop in disposable income, causing many consumers to turn to auto parts retailers and fix their vehicles on their own. As the economy has improved since the recession, consumers have returned to mechanics rather than auto parts retailers, resulting in moderate industry growth. In the five years to 2020, the industry is set to recover slowly as personal disposable income levels grow, enabling consumers to visit mechanics more often, boosting industry revenue.

The Auto Mechanics industry provides mechanical and electrical repair and maintenance work for cars, trucks, vans and trailers. Operators include self-employed mechanics, auto repair shops, garages and car care centers. This industry does not include car dealerships, auto parts retailers or gas stations that provide industry services. Industry services do not include auto bodywork, car washes, oil changes or air conditioning repair (IBISWorld reports 81112, 81119a and 81119b).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
