A used car, also called as a pre-owned vehicle, or a secondhand car refers to a vehicle that formerly has had one or more than one retail owners. Independent, franchise car owners, leasing offices, rental car companies, auctions, and private parties are some of the channels via which used cars are sold to the consumers.
The US used car retail market can be divided on the basis of dealership and engine capacity. On the basis of dealership, the market can be classified into franchised dealers, independent dealers and private party sales. On the basis of engine capacity, the market can be divided into compact, mid and full size.
The US used car retail market is expected to increase at high growth rates during the forecast period (2017-2021). The US used car retail market is supported by various growth drivers, such as increasing disposable income, introduction of standalone stores in the US, incentives on new cars and rising share of CPO sales from franchised dealers.
However, limited dealers offering hassle free customer experience and reducing consumer satisfaction with conventional used car process are some of the challenges associated with the market.
