Used Cars Market Size Worth USD 97.12 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research

High cost of new cars and affordability issues, subscription services provided by franchises, widespread use of the Internet, and easy access to websites and applications for e-commerce are some of the key factors driving Used Cars market revenue growth.

Vancouver, Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global used cars market size was USD 23.89 billion in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 15.1% during the forecast period. High cost of new cars and affordability issues, subscription services provided by franchises, leasing offices, and auto dealers, modern technology, widespread use of the Internet, and easy access to websites and applications for e-commerce are some of the key factors driving market revenue growth.

High cost of new cars and affordability issues is the key driver for market growth. The rising number of features that buyers demand on new cars is one of the main causes of increased car sticker prices. Not only do features such as power door locks and windows take the place of cranks and plungers, but companies in the automotive industry have also witnessed a shift towards incorporating significant changes.

Subscription services provided by franchises, leasing offices, and auto dealers are also a major factor driving market revenue growth. Cost of subscription services is equivalent to or lower than that of a leased car, and there are no additional expenses for maintenance, insurance, road tax or breakdown assistance.

Rise in the number of on-demand taxi companies can pose significant challenges. Despite the fact that several companies have evolved to provide transportation, not a single vehicle can match the iconic cabs that have been in use for years. Opting for an inexpensive taxi journey is far more helpful than driving one’s own car and dealing with the headache of locating a parking space.

Segment Insights

Vehicle Type Insights:

On the basis of vehicle type, the global used cars market is segmented into hatchbacks, sedans, and Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV). The sports utility vehicles segment accounted for the largest market share in the global used cars market in 2022. Safety and versatility of sports utility vehicles drive market growth. Sport utility vehicles are swiftly rising to the top of the vehicle popularity charts. In fact, a lot of automakers are choosing to focus on producing more well-liked crossovers rather than the once popular sedan. SUVs frequently do better in crash testing due to their size and weight, and driving a large car makes people feel safer.

Fuel Type Insights:

On the basis of fuel type, the global used cars market is segmented into gasoline, diesel, petrol, and others. The petrol segment accounted for the largest market share in the global used cars market in 2022. Lower after-sales maintenance costs and affordable spare parts drive the preference for petrol-powered used cars. Petrol cars are slowly gaining a lot of popularity in the used cars market. Compared to diesel-powered ones, petrol-powered cars are considered to be a safer and more convenient option when buying a car.

Regional Insights:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in the global used cars market in 2022. The primary factor driving revenue growth of the market in this region is the strategic expansion of well-known luxury automakers. For instance, on 8 June 2022, sports automaker Porsche officially announced that it will begin selling used cars under its new Porsche Approved sub-division. The Porsche Centre Kochi in Kerala will serve as the company’s launchpad for this new venture. Other German luxury automakers, such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, have already established their pre-owned automobile companies in the nation.

North America is expected to register fastest market CAGR during the forecast period. The primary factor driving revenue growth of the market in this region is the introduction of cutting-edge digital platforms and short-term micro lease models by major automobile dealers. For instance, on 14 November 2023, AutoNation Inc, America’s most admired automotive retailer and a provider of personalized transportation services, announced the launch of AutoNation Mobility, a fully digital shopping experience and a new vehicle micro lease model that gave customers access to a variety of competitively priced vehicles across brands for a brief period without requiring them to make a purchase.
