GURUGRAM, India, Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The UK used car market is consolidated with few major players (both organized and unorganized) operating in the industry. Majority of the used cars are sourced from organized sector with more than half the total share of used cars sold. Direct buying from consumers or individual sellers is another major source. Arnold Clark is the dominant player in Offline Used Car market in UK.
The share of organized sector is more than unorganized sector in UK used car market due to higher preference and trust on organized players in the market.
People in UK prefer cars that are around five years old as they are less likely to need expensive replacements at this age.
With the rise in preference for online retailing, the online segment is expected to witness significant growth, however, a large number of customers prefer offline stores while purchasing used vehicles to ensure and check the vehicle physically. Therefore, the offline segment of the market is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period.
South East England is the dominating region in UK for used cars sales as of 2021 followed by North West and the West Midlands.
Increase in demand for Used Cars: There is a significant growth in the used car sales during forecast period majorly due to expected increase in hybrid and electric vehicle car sales in coming years which is anticipated to grow at ~15% CAGR by 2026F. The conventional used cars have also maintained its dominance however, its overall growth during 2021- 2026F is slower as compared to electric vehicles. As a result, several OEMs are focusing on developing EVs rather than conventional vehicle due to surging demand for more affordable vehicle in the country.
Focus on Expanding Digital Presence: Most consumers these days make used car buying decision after searching online which necessitates synchronizing online and showroom experiences and sharing product information, offering sales support & servicing online. Online platforms can introduce an additional service wherein consumers can go through all the used car auctions taking place around them or that are scheduled for the future. At present, there is not much used car content on Tik-Tok and Snapchat. These platforms are suitable for targeting new customers and will help to increase business opportunities for used car operators.
Partnerships and Collaborations for future growth: Brand authorized/direct dealership agents as well as large multi-brand outlets can partner with cab aggregators operating in the country such as Uber, Pink Taxi, ABC Taxi in and more. Dealerships can collaborate with mid-size corporates & companies to offer additional discounts to people within that age bracket if they buy a car using the company's referral. This collaboration will enable the dealership in generating higher number of leads through the companies, which can ultimately lead to better conversion rates and boost pre-owned car sales.
