A rapidly changing landscape.

The Australian Automotive industry is growing due to rising new car sales, improved household disposable income and increased affordability of new cars. This growth has benefited new vehicle wholesalers and dealers in particular and also the automotive repair and maintenance sector. Growth has stalled somewhat with the closure of Australia’s largest automotive manufacturers (Toyota, Holden and Ford) who were negatively impacted by changing consumer demands and by having higher manufacturing costs than international manufacturers. The industry is going through a period of rapid change as it attempts to stay abreast of new car technology and changing consumer preferences with a skills shortage impacting some sectors. Consolidation and specialisation is likely to increase.

The advent of disruptive technology solutions such as subscription models by Porsche, Mercedes Benz and ride sharing apps like UBER have created mass market adoptability for a next generation customer. This has forced dealerships to rethink their place in market.
