Gear shift: The industry is expected to contend with increased regulation and rising competition

The Online Car Dealers industry retails automobiles to consumers and businesses and provides related services including auto loan financing and vehicle trade-in and car-selling services. Online-only dealers and brick-and-mortar dealers that offer online purchasing and online aid are also included in this industry. Improving economic conditions and higher car sales have resulted in overall positive growth since 2013. The industry has exhibited high revenue growth due to the growing popularity of online retailers and steady demand for high-priced vehicles. As consumer visits to traditional car dealers are declining, operators are moving online to reach the growing millennial population. Online dealers permit consumers to research their inventory, compare prices, estimate payments and apply for financing, all from the comfort of their home. Over the five years to 2023, industry growth is expected to continue increasing at a steady rate. Continued increases in disposable income and access to credit are anticipated to benefit industry demand. Moreover, more companies that provide direct online retailing are expected to enter the industry, making it easier for consumers to purchase a vehicle in the comfort of their own home, which will likely appeal to the millennial generation moving forward.

This industry retails automobiles online to consumers and businesses and provides services to aid in the purchase of automobiles.
