What is the Automotive Aftermarket Industry?

The automotive aftermarket is that part of the automotive industry concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, distribution, wholesaling, and retailing of all vehicle replacement parts, accessories, tools, equipment, chemicals and services, except those products that are used as original equipment to manufacture new vehicles.

Any product or service that a vehicle may need after it is assembled by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) is an aftermarket product or service. The traditional aftermarket includes independent repair facilities as well as mass merchandiser facilities; it does not include warranty service from an OE dealer.
