Tuned up: Demand will increase as consumers make repairs put on hold during the recession

Auto Mechanics in the US

As the recession made its way through the economy, consumers pulled back on expenses and fixed cars themselves. As such, industry firms experienced fewer cars coming into their garages and had to mark down prices in order to compete with external competition such as auto parts retailers and oil change shops. As the United States leaves the recession behind, consumers are expected to have more disposable income, which will lead to a higher volume of cars on the road and more willingness to spend money on a mechanic.

Auto mechanics repair and maintain vehicles, including passenger cars, trucks, vans and trailers. Auto mechanics often work on their own account or for small companies generally known as auto repair shops, garages and car care centers. They provide mechanical and electrical repairs and replace or repair engines.

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.
