歐洲、新興國家市場的汽車用電池維修市場分析 Understanding the Vehicle Battery Aftermarket in the European and Emerging Markets
出版日期: 2014年04月30日 內容資訊: 英文 45 Pages



中國等新興國家市場上,汽車的電池正達到保證期間結束和替換時期,導致在售後市場的電池需求的擴大。這對車輛經銷商來說是威脅,不過,對製造商系列店來說是一大市場機會。另一方面,預計歐洲的主要國家電池市場微減少。修理廠和VNM (廠商系列店) 的佔有率擴大,不過,零件經銷商和大賣場的佔有率預計降低。由於電池技術的複雜化市場二分化,在VMN和大修理廠怠速熄火用電池普及,另一方面小規模的獨立型工廠持續使用標準型電池。

本報告提供歐洲各國及新興國家市場上、汽車用電池維修市場相關分析、消費者的電池替換&選擇行動與其背景情況、廠商方面的各種技術的引進與支援情形、電池的各種類的普及預測、今後的市場規模預測 (各地區、各銷售管道) 等相關調查與考察。

第8章 建議與結論

  • 兩極化的歐洲市場:主要市場 (成熟化) 的AGM/EFB電池需求增加和東歐市場落後
  • 過保證期的汽車:對新興國家市場車輛經銷商來說的威脅
  • 電池的銷售量降低,不過,銷售額成長
  • 車輛經銷商、VMN (廠商系列店)、供應商群組受恩惠,不過,獨立型修理廠停滯不前
  • 電池廠商間的競爭:短期性激化的動向
  • 電池的購買行動:和車齡有密切關係
  • 線上專門流通管道不會成長很大
  • 新興國家市場

The demands placed on vehicle batteries are increasing, influencing their complexity and affecting how and where motorists replace them. Their complexity makes them more difficult to replace, impacting motorists' purchasing behaviours and the wider aftermarket. This report draws on Verdict's proprietary in-house data to explore the factors shaping the batteries market.


As the parc ages in the emerging markets and cars exit the manufacturer warranty period, opportunities present themselves in each aftermarket channel. The greatest opportunities are found in China, where over 65% of vehicles are under four years old. This is a challenge for dealerships, but an opportunity for manufacturer-affiliated fast fits.

Across the leading five European countries, garages and VMNs command the biggest market share. By 2017, the volume of starter batteries sold in these countries will decrease by 1.2%. The share of sales taken by garages and VMNs will increase while the proportion of the market occupied by parts stores and hypermarkets will decline.

As batteries become more complex, Verdict expects that, in the longer term, there will be a defined split in the market, with VMNs and large garage networks supporting and servicing the demands of the start-stop market, whilst smaller independent garages continue to service the standard battery market.

Reasons To Buy

  • Understand how consumer trends influence how and where motorists get their battery replaced.
  • Target which markets are most and least likely to use particular types of batteries, and see their growth potential.
  • See how the value and volume of the batteries market will change over time by region and by channel.

Your key questions answered

  • Which markets demonstrate the greatest growth potential for starter batteries and which channels will benefit?
  • How do motorists decide which brand of battery to buy, what influences the decision and what opportunities does this present for retailers?
  • What opportunities exist for all channels to maximise their potential share of the batteries market?
