Statistics out of the USA say the average age of a car on the roads is 11 1/2 years old and over 14 million cars on the road are older than 25. While owners of these older cars search for ways to keep them, new car owners want to invest in the look. That means there are a whole lot of people searching for parts. And many do not even leave the house to do it. Yep, ding-dong, it is Amazon in the door.
In 2016, Amazon launched a study website which allows shoppers to punch in the make and model to find aftermarket parts unique to their car. Use the “shop by section” tab, click on “automotive” and a banner asks you to input your data. With more filters, you can quickly be ordering the right wiper blades or headlight bulbs.
This past year, Amazon.com’s automotive sales totalled $2.4-billion (U.S.). To date in 2017, Amazon.com has sold more than $1.4-billion from the automotive division with $185-million in truck accessories, $165-million in components under the hood and $150-million in gear. Most popular are bed liners, wiper motors, brakes and battery boosters.
