Innovation, emerging technologies, disruptors, new mobility - call it what you will, the fact is, the automotive industry is changing at a rapid pace that will invariably influence the aftermarket sector. AIA Canada is committed to demystifying these new technologies and their possible impact on the aftermarket sector.
In 2017, we demonstrated our commitment through our cutting-edge market research and policy reports. The much sought-after, 'Disruptors in the Automotive Aftermarket
,' made the case for how technological change will impact different segments of the industry, while also providing a clear road map to navigate those changes. Our Consumer Behaviour Series
continued to shed light on car owners' perspectives on repair and maintenance, telematics, and more.
we will continue to support the industry and our members through insightful research into topics that directly impact their businesses. Our big-ticket piece is the 2018 Outlook Study - a staple strategic planning tool that our members have come to expect from us. We are also launching AutoConnex - a one of a kind website that will help fulfill the aftermarket's labour needs.
AIA Canada will also put a dollar value on the impact industry disruptors will have on aftermarket businesses. In all, we have an exciting line-up of research reports for 2018!
