Although each group is different, one shared quality has been seen across the aftermarket program groups — strong sales and profitability in 2010.

Traditional green antifreeze sales are holding steady, while demand for newer formulations and synthetic motor oil is growing, according to the study. Battery charger sales are up, not only in the DIY and DIFM markets — much like oxygen sensors — but among the power sports segment, groups report. Good, better and best quality wiper sales are all up, with the strongest growth in the best segment.

METHODOLOGY: The Aftermarket Business World Program Group Product Study was conducted using phone interviews with program group management and members to gauge sales and product trends. Eleven groups — AAM USA; Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Inc.; AIM; Automotive Distribution Network; Auto Parts Associates, Inc.; CARQUEST; Engine Pro/Engine Parts Group Inc.; Federated Auto Parts Distribution; National Automotive Parts Association; National Pronto Association; and TruStar — were contacted for the study.
