The Asia-Pacific automotive parts and components market was valued at USD 55.35 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 76.17 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of above 5% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027).

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the automotive industry was significant, especially during the initial days of the pandemic, as many suppliers and parts manufacturers upstream or downstream experienced initial regulatory shocks owing to lockdowns. However, as restrictions eased, key players operating across this region started adopting several growth strategies, which were likely to create market momentum during the forecast period.

Strong demand for automotive components and accessories for repair and maintenance is expected to drive the overall Asia Pacific automotive aftermarket revenue. Moreover, with e-commerce penetration, several parts and component manufacturers are investing in online platforms and using Amazon, eBay, etc., to capture the online consumers' market.

The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) is one of the emerging segments due to its cost-effective products and increasing consumer passion for automobiles. The participation of different industry players in offering innovative and easy-to-use repair kits is expected to support the enhancement of the market. However, replicas and cheap alternatives from chinese companies are likely to act as a challenge during the forecast period.

India, China, and Japan are expected to play a major role in the market studied during the forecast period. These regions act as hubs for some of the largest automotive manufacturers and accommodate growing vehicle production and penetration of new vehicles over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Rising Adoption of Electric Vehicles to Enhance the Demand in the Market

Domestic OEMs currently dominate the Chinese EV market with a sales share of around 94%. China imposed a quota on manufacturers for 100% electric or hybrid vehicles, which must represent at least 10% of total new sales. Additionally, major economies like India, Japan, and South Korea also focus on imposing stringent restrictions to improve EV adoption. So, the growing demand for efficient powertrain systems in vehicles and favorable government policies are anticipated to offer new opportunities for players operating in the market. For instance,
  • India's Automotive Mission Plan FAME-II emphasizes providing government support to the country's growing automotive and components manufacturing industry. Over the past few years, the automotive parts and accessories manufacturing industry has gone through a comprehensive remodeling, leading to the advent of a highly competitive industry.
Besides that, manufacturers in the country are geared to limit their current GHG emission levels by optimizing their powertrain system design and focusing on the lightweight and reduced size of powertrain systems with better performance results. So, players in the market are focusing on offering innovative solutions and are expanding their manufacturing facilities to consumers to capture the growing market share. For instance,
  • In February 2022, Tesla planned to build a second electric vehicle (EV) facility in China to help it keep up with increasing demand locally and in export markets. In the short term, Tesla plans to increase capacity in China to at least 1 million cars per year, with a second plant planned near its present production in Shanghai's Lingangfree trade zone.
  • In January 2022, Honda's Chinese joint venture with Dongfengannounced that it would develop an electric-vehicle manufacturing factory in Wuhan as it seeks to expand its EV output. The Dongfeng-Honda Automobile facility will open in 2024 with a production capacity of 120,000 units per year.
  • In May 2022, Toyota Group revealed plans to invest INR 48 billion (USD 624 million) in India to manufacture electric vehicle components.
  • In March 2022, Suzuki Motor, the parent company of Maruti Suzuki, announced that it would spend INR 10,440 crore in India to develop a new electric car and battery facility.
Similarly, the uptake of new technologies and innovations in engines, such as hybrid engines, is expected to gain significantly during the forecast period, which is expected to drive demand in the market.

India Expected to Play Significant Role in Development of Market

Asia-Pacific continues to dominate the market, and the manufacturers in this region offer high-cost reductions, owing to the availability of low-cost labor and raw materials. Furthermore, the area comprises China and India, which account for approximately 34% of the total vehicle production. The increasing popularity of active braking systems boosts the sales of luxury and premium vehicles. The increased growth, with commercial and government investments, as well as FDI involvement, is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

In the manufacturing sectors of emerging economies, such as India, limited R&D expenditures and smaller capabilities led to regional players compromising product quality. The problem is compounded when the price is often the primary priority for most customers, and product quality and reliability only come following the price. However, an increasing emphasis on low-quality coating products, particularly in certain end-user segments (such as automotive OEMs), is becoming outdated.

With the presence of luxury carmakers, such as Audi, BMW, and Mercedes, customer preferences have changed to vehicles with luxurious and advanced features. The new trend of giving importance to eco-friendly cars will propel the automotive parts and components market.

Competitive Landscape

The automotive industry in the Asia-Pacific region is a highly fragmented and competitive market due to the presence of several manufacturers in the market. Growing regional demand has encouraged several foreign automotive OEMs and component manufacturers to establish their presence in the region.

Along with major automakers, the tier-1 and tier-2 component manufacturers, including Bosch GmbH, Continental, ThyssenKrupp, ZF TRW, Magneti Marelli, and Delphi, have also started their operations in the region. Along with major players, several local players are also adopting mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures to enhance their market share. For instance,
  • In January 2020, component maker Tata Autocomp Systems entered a joint venture with Chinese supplier Prestolite Electric Beijing to design, engineer, manufacture, and supply powertrain solutions for the Indian electric vehicle market.
  • In May 2020, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd announced the acquisition of Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation’s stake in their joint venture JJ Impex (Delhi) Pvt. Ltd, a company engaged in automobile service and repair to expand its portfolio.
