The automotive aftermarket industry -- providers of parts, tools and equipment, and related products and services -- has had very stellar fortunes compared to vehicle manufacturers and even other retail/consumer sectors.
So private equity’s interest in this sector continues to bustle -- PE firms currently have investments in more than 100 aftermarket companies.
With such high investor interest, The Capital Roundtable introduced our first
conference on PE investing in the automotive aftermarket last year -- with an
That’s why we are so pleased to announce an ENCORE conference on Thursday,

20 Auto Aftermarket Experts Turn The Spotlight On The Sector
Along with Chris, we’ll have 20 knowledgeable panelists on the dais to bring you all the ins and outs of the automotive aftermarket space. You’ll hear from GPs, portfolio company operating executives, investment bankers, lenders, consultants, and more -- bringing you the latest thinking to help you surpass your goals in 2012.
And keep in mind, it’s a large market -- over $284 billion in 2010, on track for $294 billion in 2011, with a projected 3.6% growth rate for 2012. This makes the auto aftermarket industry over 2% of U.S. gross domestic product.
This market has proved its staying power during the economic downturn, and is poised for continued growth as vehicles are being kept longer. It includes --
At our conference, we’ll discuss why even though total miles driven have been been down due to consumer concerns, the U.S. vehicle population remains one of the largest in the world. More important, there are now more vehicles on the road in the U.S. that are out of warranty than those that are in warranty.
And we’ll explain why U.S. manufacturing of auto parts is looking better and better. Looking at our key competitor -- China – its costs are rising to the point where the labor cost advantage is being offset by the cost of shipping overseas. So for example, the aftermarket company you acquire may not need to stage production any farther away than the southeast United States or Mexico.
We’ll also cover the latest information on the do-it-yourself market versus the do-it-for-me market. While the perception is that Americans have been moving away from getting their hands dirty, and the electronic complexity of vehicles has given dealerships the edge, the reality is that consumers have a new willingness to save themselves a few bucks, whether through their own labor or with the help of a friend or neighbor.
