Although there are some industries that are struggling due to the pandemic, the automotive industry has seen a huge fall in demand for new cars during the lockdown period and it is also due to travel restrictions. However, the used car market has seen a huge jump in sales due to reason such as fall in income, shortage in money, and increasing preference for private cars to maintain social distancing which is expected to affect the used car industry positively during the COVID-19 outbreak globally. As the new cars industry suffered and came to a halt, the used car industry emerged during the pandemic, owing to the growth of online sales of the used cars.

A used car is the second-hand vehicle that is available for resale. Various outlets such as franchise and independent car dealers, rental car companies, auctions, private party sales, and leasing offices sell used cars.

There is a lower rate of car ownership among millennials owing to high cost of vehicles and maintenance cost of personal car. In addition, millennials are inclined toward cutting costs on cars, and thus majorly opt for used cars to travel. In addition, a lot of people are not able to buy new cars due to high cost, which boosts the sales of the used cars in the market. This also makes way for different investments by industry participants to establish their dealership network in the market.

Factors such as high cost of new vehicles, concerns regarding affordability, rise in demand for off-lease cars & subscription service by the franchise, leasing offices, and car dealers are observed to boost the growth of the used cars market. However, unorganized sales of used cars and lack of regularization hamper the growth of the global market. Moreover, advent of e-commerce & online technologies, steady increase in organized/semi-organized sales in emerging countries, rise in electric vehicle business across the globe, and demand for car sharing services are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the used cars market.

Moreover, majority of the people across the globe are planning to buy cars post lockdown. For instance, according to cars24 report, consumers prefer to use private cars and less public transportation; therefore, there is a shift in preference from cabs and public transport to private vehicles. Although there are some automotive companies that are struggling due to the pandemic, the used cars market has seen a huge jump in sales in some countries due to reason such as fall in income, shortage in money, and increase in preference for private cars to maintain social distancing, which is expected to affect the used cars industry positively during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Rise in demand for off-lease cars  & subscription service by the franchise, leasing offices, and car dealers

The rise in competition in the market and the threat of new entries are the factors that boost the growth of the used cars dealership business. The reliable & add on service/quality has changed the perspective of consumers toward the used vehicle business. In addition, franchised dealers with support from OEM involvement in certification and marketing programs, online inventory pooling, and access to high-quality contracts are in a strong position to benefit from the growth in the used cars market. Moreover, there has been a rise in the demand for the vehicle subscription services in the last few years which allows consumers to use a vehicle on monthly basis by paying a monthly fees, which includes maintenance, insurance, and roadside assistance. Furthermore, rapid change in technology or introduction of new models of vehicles at short intervals allow customers to sell or exchange their old vehicle with a new vehicle. Such value for money benefit has led to the rise in growth of the used cars industry in the coming years.

Unorganized used cars sales

The unorganized players in the used cars market limit the market growth. In countries such as India, China, Thailand, Brazil, and Mexico, the unorganized players hold the larger share in the used cars market. In addition, the unorganized players do not offer any warranty on pre-owned cars. Moreover, few sellers also perform malpractices such as re-painting and dent removal for accidental vehicles to hide their damage and get a false inflated value, which creates fear among the buyers for buying used cars. Therefore, higher rate of malpractices and hold of the larger share of the market by unorganized dealers creates a threat for the growth of the used cars market. For instance, in recent interview CEO of Mahindra First choice, a leading used cars sales company in India said that unorganized players in the used cars market pose threat to consumer protection. In India, the organized sector holds only a 12-15% market share whereas the margin of 8 to 10% is not equally rewarding compared to the U.S. market. Thus, unorganized players are creating a threat to the used cars market.

Lack of regularization

The used cars dealer is dependent on the seller because the dealer doesn’t get cars to cater to their customers unless owner doesn’t sell it in the market. If the sales of the new cars decrease, the market will be short of supply after some time. Further, pandemic has placed the automotive industry at great disruption. In the aftermath of the pandemic, the consumers are expected to prefer private conveyance. Therefore, the used cars market is completely dependent on the replacement buyer, car owner to sell their vehicle, and used cars import that creates lots of uncertainly in terms of getting supply to cater to the market demand. Thus, these factors are expected to hinder the growth of the used cars market in the near future.

Advent of e-commerce and online technologies

Advancements in technology such as the development of the internet, use of e-commerce sites/applications to boost the demand for business, and introduction of hybrid and the electric vehicle has changed the buyer position in the market. With the help of online technologies, consumers are becoming knowledgeable about the vehicle, its residual value, third party profit margin and others. Moreover, rapid urbanization, surge in internet connectivity, and developments in the telecom sector have allowed for a much-better information flow for people. These factors are being rapidly used by used cars owners to advertise their vehicles and spread the details about them. This online platform has smoothly increased the sales process and enables more stakeholders to sell and buy cars. The supply side of this market has more weightage than the demand side and transparency through knowledge has changed the dynamics and managed to turn customer intelligence to their advantage, thereby increasing the demand for used carss in the future. Steady increase in organized/semi-organized sales in emerging countries and surge in electric vehicle business across the globe.

The market for used carss in countries such as Mexico, India, China, and Brazil has always been dominated by unorganized players. Unlike these unorganized players in emerging countries, organized players are providing free servicing and free towing at the dealership, along with the used carss business expansions in countries. These services help in attracting customers toward their dealerships and building trust between buyers and sellers. For instance, TrueCar, Inc. has launched TrueCar Military. TrueCar Military offers exclusive incentives and benefits for active duty service members of the U.S. armed forces, veterans, military retirees, and their families. Moreover, there is an increase in demand for electric vehicles owing to rise in need for pollution control systems and implementation of stringent emission standards.
