Used Car Dealers in Canada Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

The Used Car Dealers industry experienced volatile conditions in the early parts of the five years to 2014; however, the industry has since shifted gears and taken off at full speed. During the recession, relatively high unemployment and limited disposable income caused consumers to cut back on discretionary purchases, such as cars. Consequently, revenue for the Used Car Dealers industry fell in 2009. Beginning in 2010, however, the economy began to improve and consumer spending began to rise again. Moreover, consumers, still wary of the economic climate, increasingly opted to purchase used vehicles over new ones, helping to boost sales. This renewed demand has remained consistent and over the five years to 2014, revenue for the Used Car Dealers industry is expected to grow at an annualized rate, including an estimated jump in 2014.

Profit, measured as earnings before interest and taxes, is also expected to increase over the five-year period, supported by higher average selling prices. Although used vehicle prices declined in 2009 and 2010, according to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Brandon Ruiz, they began to rise in 2011 in light of limited inventory. The recession reduced fleet purchases and the number of leased vehicles, which caused a shortage in the one-to-five-year-old used vehicles segment. In 2014, profit will account for a percentage of revenue.

The Used Car Dealers industry is highly fragmented and has a low level of concentration. These trends are expected to continue in the five years to 2019. Over the period, industry revenue is projected to grow at an annualized rate. Rising demand for used vehicles, particularly for vehicles five years and older, is anticipated to drive growth prospects, says Ruiz. Nonetheless, many firms are expected to forgo significant expansion of their operations. Rather than expanding into new markets with new locations, dealers will instead prefer to increase inventory at their existing retail outlets, hoping to leverage higher sales from an existing customer base. As such, the total number of industry dealerships is only projected to rise at an annualized rate over the five-year period.

Leading Gap Insurance Specialist http://www.car2cover.co.uk confirm clarification of the Market Value Myth


Hertfordshire (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2013

For many motorists, the undefined phrase “we will pay the Market Value” within their motor insurance terms and conditions has given a great deal of cause for concern and doubt. To help understand and clarify this phrase, industry experts http://www.car2cover.co.uk have published a useful clarification.

In the event of a motor insurer declaring a write off, the policyholder is normally entitled to receive a settlement payment equal to the Market Value. Contrary to what some commentators and policyholders might suggest, Market Value is not defined by the insurer and as such is not the concern some would have us believe.

According to Tom Barley, a spokesman for http://www.car2cover.co.uk Market Value is never clearly defined in a motor insurance policy and yet the Financial Services Ombudsman are very clear about how insurers must calculate theMarket Value of a vehicle in these circumstances.

The Financial Services Ombudsman (FOS) who preside over a variety of disputes, expect all insurers to calculate ‘Market Value’ by reference to fully independent and impartial means and have published these guidelines to eliminate any ambiguity. See http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/publications/technical_notes/motor-valuation.html#5.

The FOS require insurers to establish and make a Market Value offer by reference to three motor and insurance industry price guides:

1. Parkers Guide

2. Glasses Guide

3. CAP value market manager

As such the policyholder can be confident that it is not the insurer who decides upon the ‘Market Value’ but a recognised independent and impartial industry guide supported if necessary by ombudsman enforcement.

The insurer is however entitled to adjust the recommended Market Value for mileage, condition and non standard fittings – but those adjustments are expected to be reasonable and in line with the price guide recommendations.

If an insurer makes an offer that appears to be a mistake, the policyholder is entitled to challenge it and if necessary refer it to the Financial Ombudsman. Its never been an issue for us when clients make their corresponding Gap Insurance claims, but if a policyholder wishes to challenge an offer they can said Barley

Industrial And Commercial Hybrid & Pure Electric Vehicles Market Trends 2013 – 2023: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Drivers And Opportunities, Players


Albany, NY (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

Those selling components for electric vehicles and those wishing to make the vehicles themselves must seek where the majority of the money is spent and will be spent. That must lead them to industrial and commercial electric vehicles because today these represent 60% of the value of the electric vehicle market. Indeed, this sector is set to grow 4.2 times in the next decade. Industrial and commercial electric vehicles include heavy industrial vehicles, the term referring to heavy lifting, as with forklifts.

Then we have buses, trucks, taxis and the other light industrial and commercial vehicles. There are also a few work boats and commercial boats and one day there will be commercial electric aircraft but this is really a story about the burgeoning demand for off-road industrial vehicles and on-road commercial vehicles. In particular, industrial electric vehicles make industry more efficient and commercial electric vehicles reduce congestion. Both of them greatly reduce pollution and align closely with government objectives concerning industry and the environment, yet they minimally depend on subsidy, in contrast with some other electric vehicle types.

View Full Report With TOC@ http://www.researchmoz.us/industrial-and-commercial-hybrid-and-pure-electric-vehicles-2013-2023-forecasts-opportunities-players-report.html

This report covers the technical and market trends for industrial and commercial vehicles whether hybrid or pure electric, putting it in the context of electric vehicles overall and including the activities of a host of manufacturers of the vehicles and their components and even providing future technological development roadmaps.

The market for electric industrial vehicles is already large because, by law, forklifts have to be electric when used indoors. Little growth remains in this market but outdoors almost all earthmoving and lifting vehicles use the conventional internal combustion engine. That is about to change dramatically because hybrid electric versions reduce cost of ownership and exposure to price hikes with fossil fuels. Hybrids increasingly perform better as well, with more power from stationary, ability to supply electricity to other equipment and other benefits including less noise and pollution. On the other hand, airports, often government owned or funded, are under great pressure to finish converting their Ground Support Equipment GSE to pure electric versions both on and off the tarmac partly using federal grants.

Buy a copy of this report@ http://www.researchmoz.us/industrial-and-commercial-hybrid-and-pure-electric-vehicles-2013-2023-forecasts-opportunities-players-report.html

Yet another industrial trend is for use of electric vehicles to replace slow and often dangerous manual procedures. Sometimes a self-powered indoor crane replaces scaffolding. An electric stair climber replaces human effort and possible injury. On the other hand, sit-on floor cleaners in buildings, sit-on ice cleaners in ice rinks, outrider vehicles carried on trash collection trucks and a host of similar solutions speed processes and reduce injuries and costs.

Buses, trucks, taxis and the other light industrial and commercial vehicles are going electric for similar reasons but we must add the desire of national and local governments, who buy many of them, to go green, even where there is no payback. However, the size and growth of the industrial and commercial sector is less dependent on government funding and tax breaks than the more fragile market for electric cars, particularly pure electric ones. Excitingly, most of the electric vehicle technologies are changing and improving hugely and innovation often comes here before it is seen in the more publicised electric vehicle sectors such as cars.

Asynchronous traction motors were first widely used on forklifts: their benefits of longer life, less maintenance, low cost and freedom from magnet price hikes and heating problems are only later being seen in a few cars. Ultracapacitors otherwise known as supercapacitors permit very fast charging of buses whether by the new Level 3 charging stations or regenerative braking and they release huge surges of power when the bus is full and starting on a hill. Gas turbine range extenders have been on some buses for 12 years but they are only now being planned for cars. Fuel cells will be viable in fleets where the expensive hydrogen distribution is manageable – not for cars across the world. Energy harvesting shock absorbers about to hit the market will be very viable on buses and trucks where they can put up to 12 kW into the battery whereas such devices on cars will take longer to prove.

View All Hybrid & Pure Electric Research Reports @ http://www.researchmoz.us/publisher/idtechex-58.html

Nevertheless, it is important to look at industrial and commercial electric vehicles as part of all electric vehicles out there – as we do – because it is increasingly true that one company will produce EVs for many end uses and even make key components. This achieves the product reliability and cost advantages that come from highest volume manufacture based on standardisation and shared research.

Spark Plug Manufacturing in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

The Spark Plug Manufacturing industry has endured a bumpy ride over the five years to 2013. The industry lost its spark in 2009, as downstream automakers suffered plummeting sales during the recession. As disposable incomes fell, consumers delayed purchasing big-ticket items like cars. As a result, demand from car and automobile manufacturing dropped 36.5%. However, demand rebounded strongly in 2010 on the back of recovering consumer sentiment, causing auto manufacturing plants to ramp up production. Consequently, the Spark Plug Manufacturing industry has experienced steady growth since 2010, including a 3.5% revenue increase in 2013, says IBISWorld industry analyst Agiimaa Kruchkin. Despite shifting gears to a promising recovery, industry revenue is expected to decline an annualized 7.4% over the five years to 2013, totaling $ 345.4 million.

The rapidly increasing tide of low-cost imports has continued to erode industry revenue and reinforce a focus on price-based competition. The sheer level of price-based competition has prevented domestic manufacturers from implementing price increases despite rising production costs. As a result, domestic operators are exiting the industry, and imports are continuously occupying a greater share of domestic demand, continues Kruchkin. Over the five years to 2013, imports are growing at an average annual rate of 6.5%; imports have expanded from occupying 46.8% of domestic demand in 2008 to an anticipated 70.3% in 2013.These tough conditions have dented industry profit, inevitably leading to consolidation. The total number of companies is dropping, creating excess capacity. Furthermore, many companies are offshoring operations to achieve cost-savings, thus allowing them to obtain better profit margins. In addition, as operators attempted to cut costs, employment has fallen rapidly at an annualized rate of 12.5% to 905 workers in the five years to 2013. Due to significant offshoring and outsourcing to foreign companies, fewer domestic companies are producing spark plugs. As a result, the Spark Plug Manufacturing industry’s market share concentration has been rising, particularly among the industrys two major players: Denso Corporation and NGK Spark Plugs (USA) Inc.

In five years to 2018, the industry will slowly rebuild in line with automaker recovery, although rising imports will weigh heavily upon revenue growth. New car sales are expected to jump during the period as consumer sentiment recovers. But imports will continue to rise and will supply a larger portion of domestic demand by 2018.

EBS Leads Automotive Brake System Market Growth to 2017 Says New Research Report at ReportsnReports.com

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2013

Automotive brakes have evolved from simple wooden block brakes which were used in steel rimmed wheels, to modern days disc and drum brakes with electronic assistance. The key function of brakes in automobiles is to slow down or stop the vehicle in motion. Majority of the brakes used in automobiles are of friction types, in which the brakes use friction to slow down the vehicle. In this, brakes convert the kinetic energy of the moving wheels to heat energy via friction, which is then dissipated into the atmosphere.

Apart from friction, another type of brake is electromagnetic or electro-mechanical brakes. These use electromagnetic force to apply mechanical resistance. The electromagnetic brakes are popularly used in trains and trams. However, recent designs have increased the possibility of using electromagnetic brakes in aircraft to reduce the wear and tear on the tires with regenerative braking (energy recovery mechanism).

As discussed earlier, majority of the automobiles use friction brakes, the scope of this study is confined to disc and drum brakes, which are the two types of the friction brakes. In drum brakes the friction is caused by brake shoes, whereas in disc brakes the friction material is called as brake pads. In addition to the key function of slowing down the vehicle (deceleration), the automotive brakes (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/237861-automotive-brake-system-market-by-geography-brake-type-disc-drum-vehicle-type-passenger-cars-light-heavy-commercial-two-wheelers-technology-electronically-assisted-others-global-trends-forecast-to-2018.html) also deal with absorption of kinetic energy. The modern brakes are associated with electronic assistance and hence, known as electronic brake system (EBS) as a whole. An EBS is composed of any of the functions such as Anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability program (ESP), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS) etc.

With all these electronic assistance functions, modern automotive brakes are not limited to deceleration only, but they also play an important role in drivers assistance and safety. Increasing national & international regulations towards vehicle safety, regulations for vehicle stopping distance, and changing customer orientation in the direction of personal safety would upsurge the overall demand of automotive brakes at the promising rate in the future. Hence, many technological developments pertaining to cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the automotive brakes can be expected in subsequent five years.

The report segments the market based on vehicle types (passenger, commercial, heavy trucks and buses, and two-wheelers); geography (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World); brake types (disc and drum); technology (brakes with and without electronic assistance); and provides market forecast in terms of volume (number of brakes) and revenue ($ million) for aforesaid segments.

The report classifies and defines the demand for brakes in the automobile industry. It covers qualitative data about automotive brakes as a system, its components and functions. The report also provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the automotive brakes market.
