Shifting gears: Consumers will resume spending on services, but external competition remains a threat

Oil Change Services in the US

Although disposable income fell during the downturn, causing consumers to delay vehicle maintenance, the recession also created pent-up demand because vehicle maintenance cannot be delayed indefinitely. As such, industry revenue is expected to grow 2014, as consumers inevitably seek out industry operators for necessary maintenance. The industry is forecast to grow over the next five years, albeit at a slower rate. Disposable income is set to rise and, in turn, consumers will visit industry providers at accelerating rates. However, external competition will remain a concern for the industry, as larger entities continue pressuring industry operators on price.

Industry operators change motor oil, lubricate the chassis of automotive vehicles and provide other automotive repair and maintenance services, such as tire rotations and liquid flushes. Unlike auto mechanics, companies in this industry do not provide mechanical and electrical repair and maintenance. Industry operators are also not involved in body, paint, interior and glass repair. Companies that provide car wash services are also not included.

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.
