Automotive Parts & Accessories
Automotive parts and accessories are used to repair or replace worn or damaged car components, enhance performance, or maintain the condition of a vehicle. Examples of auto parts include engines, transmissions and steering mechanisms.
The industry consists of physical retail establishments that sell automobile parts and accessories to repair or maintain vehicles. Major players in this space include Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, The Pep Boys (all located in the US), ATU (Germany), AUTOBACS SEVEN and Yellow Hat (Japan).
Online sales of exterior and interior auto parts, lighting products, and LED products have been the most popular categories among car enthusiasts who want to customize their vehicles.
Hedges & Co anticipates online sales of auto parts and accessories will reach $16.0 billion in 2020, with most of these transactions taking place on mobile devices.
Automotive Repair & Maintenance
Automotive repair and maintenance are essential for the health and safety of your car. From an oil change to a complete overhaul, having the right mechanic on board can keep your vehicle running like new.
If you require repairs, request a written estimate for the work to be done. This should include the condition that needs fixing, parts needed and labor charge. It should also state that the shop will contact you for approval prior to beginning any work that exceeds an agreed-upon amount of both time and money.
Auto repair shops employ technicians to diagnose and make repairs on various systems, such as engines, transmissions, air conditioning, brakes, and wheel alignment. They usually utilize specialized tools for more intricate jobs while being familiar with government regulations for working on cars, trucks, and vans. Typically these professionals possess at least a high school diploma along with some automotive repair training; they receive hourly or annual wages accordingly.
In recent years, the automotive industry has undergone an immense evolution. Electronic systems are replacing mechanical devices in many aspects of vehicle operations, leading to improvements such as fuel efficiency and driver comfort.
Over three decades, high-tech cars from the 1980s have evolved into modern auto electronic engines with computer controlled systems. Nowadays, modern vehicles boast hundreds of electronic components.
These include engine management, ignition, radios and carputers*, telematics and in-car entertainment systems. The increasing use of electronics in vehicles has been spurred on by global trends towards connectivity and automation.
Automotive electronics require materials with uncompromising reliability and performance. Henkel provides a selection of solutions to meet these demands with adhesives, sealants, and thermal management products.
Auto parts exhibitions provide a wealth of opportunities to learn about automotive technology. You may come across electronic features designed to keep you safer on the road or systems that alert you when another vehicle is approaching in your blind spot.
In this career, you must possess the technical proficiency to utilize and repair new technology as it becomes available. Furthermore, you must help customers comprehend complex technical data.
