Recovery May Rev New Car Sales

Historically, the average car on a US road has been a little more than 8 years old[1]. But the recession forced more drivers to stay behind the wheels of their aging cars. As new vehicle sales dropped by more than one-third to 10.4 million in 2009[2], the average age of cars grew to a record 10.8 years. As existing cars age and maintenance costs rise, consumers may actually find it cheaper to replace them with newer models. During the last recession, automakers and their suppliers cut their manufacturing capacity, offering a potential benefit if consumer demand returned. In 2013, worldwide vehicle sales rose 5.2% from prior year, supported by a 13% increase in North America[3]. This motif provides exposure to companies that make cars, auto parts and related components that could be in need as more consumers swap their old car keys for new ones. See more
