Europe and South America Used Car Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:

Drivers

  • Emergence of Different E-Commerce Platform in Europe and South America Regions

E-commerce platforms have fundamentally changed the automotive retailing market to a larger extent. The increasing penetration of the internet has also facilitated an online marketplace around the world. With that, consumers have several choices including unlimited varieties, style, price, and model comparison features in the online portals. Most dealerships list new and used car details online so that customers can find information along with pictures on almost any vehicle of interest. Furthermore, if pricing and incentive information is not available, the user can just call and approach many dealers available online and get the required information about the car model. In addition, various online used car sales websites offer free or discounted after-sales service packages that cover various types of maintenance costs associated with the vehicle after purchase. 

  • Increase in Transparency and Symmetry of Information Between Dealers and Customers

Online shopping is influencing the way consumers think about purchasing used cars. Consumers want the choice of configuring a vehicle to their requirements rather than accepting what’s on the lot as the only option out there. So, trust between consumers and dealers is necessary for their decision-making process to avoid any conflicts or disagreements. As with new car sales, the relationship between dealer and customer will need to be based on respect, and ease of purchase. Such an asymmetrical relationship will presume that buyers and sellers possess the same information to determine a product’s quality. In addition, the Internet is increasingly becoming the information source of choice for used vehicle buyers.  With that, nowadays customers are increasingly knowledgeable about cars, their quality, residual value, prices applied, finance charges, availability, and more frequently the exact profit margin that the dealer makes in closing a deal. Technology is also allowing dealers to find new ways to source inventory and unload wholesale units more quickly. Improvements such as these in the used car sector are further helping dealers to run their sales process more efficiently while also improving inventory flow control.

Opportunity

  • Rise in Strategic Partnership and Acquisitions Between Two Companies

Coordinating and integrating various technologies is essential for achieving sustained improvements in the automobile sector. For this reason, the government is also striving through partnerships and acquisitions to accelerate the appropriate use of existing technologies in the used car market. This not only helps to make awareness and profit of the organization but also creates scope for a new invention. Also through partnerships, the company can provide all facilities including online promotions and good offers to attract buyers in the marketplace. Furthermore, this helps both companies to get recognized in the premium market. So, the increase in mergers and acquisitions in the automobile sector is creating a lot of opportunities for the used car market to grow extensively.

Restraint/Challenge

  • Lack of Post-Sale Services for Used Car

There is no doubt that customer satisfaction is one of the essential objectives of any business not for its survival alone but its sustenance. Unfortunately, this is not easy to achieve in reality due to intense competition and customer complexity. Customer satisfaction without quality enhancement features that are valued by the customers cannot be achieved. Quality appreciation from the customers via service encounters and post-purchase evaluations if not satisfied will decline the demand for the used car eventually. Although, service quality has become a crucial aspect of every service provider's product in the market, and the automobile business is no different, with customers seeking better after-sales services for greater value for money. Undoubtedly after-sales services have become a significant aspect of automotive firms marketing strategies due to the benefits and rewards they provide in the short and long term.
