One of the fastest growing car aftermarkets in Europe - Polish, Czech and Slovakian - is again showing annual growth trends. For the period following 2007, the car aftermarket volume was growing in some regions, and decreasing in others. The car aftermarket in Poland, compared with other eastern European countries, did not really feel the economic crisis.

In Poland numbers of registered passenger cars increased by 73% from year 2000 and today there is more than 17 million registered passenger cars.


What makes the Polish aftermarkets different?

What the study discovered concerning the major differences between Poland vs. Germany?

  • The Polish aftermarket is dominated by several big parts distributors.
  • Consistent with other East European countries, in Poland the independent repairers are dominating in the aftermarket. In those countries, 92% of all repairers are independent repairers. In Germany, comparatively - the IAM garages held 67% of total garages. Accordingly, the independent repairers in Poland are much more important and hold much more market shares than the authorized repairers.
  • In Poland the most popular car brand is Fiat. In Czech Republic and Slovakia – local production cars Skoda.

In Poland, there is still a role for new garage concepts and autocentres or place to create more outlets of existing concepts.
Who will fill this growth need - are the big European garage concepts from abroad going to intensify the car aftermarket competition in Poland?
Also, EU regulations are opening new business opportunities for “free” workshops and spare parts distributors to compete with manufacturers’ authorized distributors/dealers.

In OES, influenced by the economic situation, the profitable after sales business gained importance.
