Pune, India, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global used vehicle market size is projected to reach USD 1,917.35 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 1.64% during the forecast period. Reduced demand for public transport during the current COVID-19 pandemic is likely to spur the adoption of personal vehicles, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Used Vehicle Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Vehicle Type (Passenger Car, Commercial Vehicle), By Vehicle Age (0 to 05 Years, 06 Years to 10 Years, 10 Years and above), By Vendor Type (Organized, Unorganized), By Propulsion Type (ICE, Electric), By Market Type (Offline, Online), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”.

Fears of contracting the coronavirus and the strict social distancing rules imposed by governments around the world to stem the transmission of the virus have led to a drastic fall in demand for public transportation. According to the Kerala-based Center for Policy Research, remote working and fewer job opportunities as a result of the coronavirus will lower the demand for public transport and increase the uptake of personal modes of travel. Furthermore, CRISIL Research, an India-based ratings agency, observes that the growing preference for personal vehicles will prove beneficial for the used cars industry, while rise in rural income will stimulate sales of two-wheelers in India. Similar trends are being witnessed in the UK and the US as well, where consumers have shifted towards personal commuting. The COVID-19 pandemic is, thus, anticipated to propel the demand for used vehicles in the near future.

Driving Factor

Expanding Urban Spaces to Generate Prolific Growth Opportunities

One of the most exciting developments supporting the used vehicle market growth is the speedy expansion of urban areas around the globe. Projections released by the UN in its World Urbanization Prospects in 2018 show that approximately 68% of the global population will be residing in urban areas by 2050. Rising from the current 55%, this increase is estimated to add 2.5 billion dwellers to urban areas by 2050, as per UN data, with nearly 90% of this growth occurring in Asia and Africa. Urban spaces typically have a large proportion of working-class individuals that need cheap and efficient transportation to commute over long distances. Used vehicles provide the optimal solution to such individuals as well-maintained cars can be bought for prices significantly lower than new cars. Moreover, the coronavirus pandemic has led to a severe economic downturn in major economies, which has reduced consumers’ purchasing powers, particularly in developing economies. As a result, the adoption of used cars is on the rise in large cities across the globe and as urban agglomerates continue to swell, the demand for pre-used vehicles is also likely to expand.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Hold Dominant Market Position; North America to Display Healthy Growth

Asia Pacific led the used vehicles market share in 2019 with a market size of USD 1,215.27 billion and is expected to dominate during the forecast period. This is mainly attributable to the booming demand for passenger vehicles in the rapidly developing economies of Asia Pacific such as China and India. In addition to this, improving access to the internet and increasing activities of online vehicle retailers in this region will further aid market growth.

In North America, widespread popularity of pre-owned cars, especially among the youth, will ensure sustained market growth in the region. On the other hand, the market in Europe will experience dynamic growth in the coming years on account of the rising sales of electric vehicles in the region.
