The ‘official’ automotive aftermarket industry size

The aftermarket industry’s most respected source for industry size is the Auto Care Association from their annual Factbook. It’s the “gold standard.”

It’s worth noting that the most recent Factbook puts the United States aftermarket industry at just over $370 billion for automobiles and light trucks (2023), plus just over $123 billion for medium- and heavy-duty. That’s nearly $500 billion for the US aftermarket in 2023, in contrast to the reports available below, some of which have the global aftermarket smaller than the US aftermarket.
