The NPD Group has revealed the winners of its first ever Aftermarket Performance Awards recognizing top market performers in the U.S.
The results were shared with the recipients during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. The awards were given to the companies with the highest increase in market share and fastest-turning brand per item in the U.S., according to NPD’s Retail Tracking Service, and highest increase in online market share in the U.S., according to NPD’s Checkout E-Commerce Tracking.
An equivalent to the NPD tracking service is not available in Canada and, though there are some market differences, the results can provide some insights for Canadian aftermarket players.
NPD’s Retail Tracking Service for the Automotive Aftermarket is based on sales data collected from a panel of automotive specialty and mass retailers. Retail Tracking Service data for Tires, specifically, is collected from a panel of mass, warehouse club, and e-commerce retailers.
“Fast-paced change is the soundtrack of today’s retail scene, and it’s resonating in a multitude of ways within our automotive aftermarket community. We are happy to recognize successes and achievements in today’s increasingly competitive environment,” said Steve Flavin, President, Automotive Aftermarket practice, The NPD Group. “Congratulations to all the winners – we wish you continued success heading into 2020, and beyond.”
