Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Motor Vehicle Parts Retailers industry exhibits a low level of market share concentration. IBISWorld expects the three largest industry operators to account for 12.6% of revenue in 2016-17. The industry is extremely fragmented and there are a large number of operators. Halfords, a very well-known retailer with over 450 hundred stores across the United Kingdom, is the only operator to boast a market share higher than 5%.

Other than Halfords, there are very few motor vehicle parts retailers that operate on a large scale. In 2015, almost 60% of industry enterprises employed fewer than five employees and only 21.1% of establishments employed 10 or more. This illustrates the competitive and fragmented nature of the industry. The industry is slowly becoming more concentrated.
