UK is expected to overtake France and become the 3rd-largest market in Europe after Germany and Italy. IAM dominance is expected to continue, as the average vehicle age rises over the next 7 years, thereby leaving a relatively older VIO. Brexit is expected to have an impact on inventory management, availability of skilled labour, import and export regulations. As a result, new vehicle sales is expected to grow at a very minimal CAGR of -1.0%, which will have a low impact on total VIO. Close to 72% of the total VIO is said to be more than 3 years old, enabling periodic maintenance and MOT and therefore, aftermarket revenue at the manufacturer level is expected to have a CAGR of close to 1.8% during 2016–2023. Penetration of e-retail for automotive parts and services in the UK is expected to have a CAGR of 10.5% during 2016-2023. The growth is triggered by the strong penetration of internet / smartphone usage and the discounts available on online retail.
