The European automotive aftermarket parts distribution is witnessing a rapid growth. Europe is home to some of the leading Original Equipment Suppliers (OES) that are continuously on the lookout for buying groups and distributors that align with the philosophy of the company.

Frost & Sullivan segments the automotive distribution ecosystem into two:
• Buying group: An association of distributors partnering with an aim to enhance their collective purchasing power to achieve the best prices
from their suppliers. A buying group is usually a large conglomerate that ensures smaller associated entities can work within the operating
rules of the umbrella group. The buying groups covered in the scope of this research are ATR, Temot International Limited, Group Auto
international, LKQ international, Autodis, Uni-Select, and Rhiag Group.
• Regional distributors: A distributor is a sub-entity that purchases noncompeting products or product lines, stocks them in bulk, and resells
them to retailers or direct to the end users. Most distributors leverage on getting supplier benefits or manufacturer's promotional efforts for
selling more of a particular brand. The distributors covered in the scope of this research are Alliance Automotive Group, Andrew Page, Rapid
Group, Dingbro, WM, Matthies, HESS Auto, Autolia, IDLP, Laurent, NOVA, IDIR, OVAM, GS Autobat, Lausan, and Cecauto.

Regional technology trends and growth potential in the next 5 years are also some of the highlights covered as a part of the benchmarking. Amongst other strategic content, the research also looks into the impact of geo-politics on the EU5 region, especially Brexit and the Catalan Crisis in Spain, and their impact on smaller regional distributors and changing dynamics of the automotive supply chain.
