'Outlook with Ben Kingsley' to highlight automotive aftermarket

July 23, 2013
Report notes growth of automotive aftermarket as consumers hold onto cars longer.

The producers of "Outlook with Ben Kingsley" announced a new report highlighting how the aftermarket automotive industry is stepping into the void and doing business in a struggling economy, according to Outlook Television.

In this new report, audiences will see how this $200 billion industry is seeing growth as people put off new car purchases due to economic struggles. Aftermarket parts and service providers are continuing to see customers and their cars as they work to get the most out of their automotive dollar.

Another factor contributing to the business environment for aftermarket providers is a move from a do-it-yourself demographic to a do-it-for-me demographic. Aging Baby Boomers and the increasing complexity of automobiles is making it more and more difficult for the shade tree mechanic to diagnose and remedy problems.

"Outlook Ben Kingsley" is an independently produced television series provided to public television stations around the country. The show is not affiliated with PBS.
