The global used cars market is experiencing a significant growth, and is expected to grow considerably over the next few years. 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. However, the laws and regulations differ from country to country. Moreover, car subscription services have become one of the most efficient ways in today’s world. Another essential aspect of the used car market is vehicle reports. The vehicle report offers a record on the basis of the vehicle identification number (VIN). These reports specify articles of public record, including vehicle label branding, odometer deception, lemon law reclaims, and product recall.

Based on vehicle type, the market is further divided into hatchbacks, sedan, sports utility vehicle, pick-up trucks, and MPVs. On the basis of fuel type, the market is separated on the basis of gasoline, diesel, and alternative fuel vehicles. Region wise, the market is analyzed across regions including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Top Impacting Factors:

Rise in internet penetration and online portals to get the information of used cars, growth in demand for off-lease cars by the franchise, leasing offices, and car dealers, and surge in demand for car subscription augment the growth of the global used car market. However, growth in depreciation rate of vehicle, demand for car sharing services, and lack of regularization and unorganized used of car sales restrain the growth to certain extent. Moreover, rise in disposable income in emerging countries and strict vehicular emission regulations would create a number of opportunities in the coming years.

Rising preference for used cars as a more reliable option than public transport amid Covid-19:

The key players in the used cars industry are keenly observing the scenarios all around the world, and adopting strategies accordingly. The used car market will experience a profitability curve in the forthcoming time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. A large chunk of travelers cannot afford new cars, due to which, people are switching toward used cars for fulfilling their mobility needs. 

Several original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are now stepping into the used cars sector, as it can be a good chunk of profit post-lockdown. Regarding this, the MD & CEO of Mahindra First Choice Wheels stated that the used car sector stands to recover in the coming months. 

Demand for used cars over new automobiles to be skyrocketed:

As per the marketers of the industry, used cars offer valuable deals. In addition, factors such as the disinclination to invest in the latest model or new car during a financial recession and affinity-based on value perception offer new opportunities for the market players. Furthermore, the quality of vehicles coming into the used car market attracts the customers to choose used-cars over a new vehicle. Moreover, the rising penetration of systematized players in the market offers valuable and satisfactory deals to the customers. Therefore, at times when the automobile industry may witness a slide in terms of revenue, the used car market is anticipated to manifest double-digit growth.
