IHS Markit Launches New Solution for Automotive Aftermarket


New offering provides a view of what's happening at the counter in
near real time

Business information provider IHS Markit (NASDAQ:INFO) today announced
the launch of the Market Performance Analysis Tool, the newest part of
the company's WorldView aftermarket online solution. This addition will
allow aftermarket companies to analyze unit and dollar volume by product
line and compare actual transaction pricing against competition – over
time and by geographic regions – utilizing the same WorldView online
system currently used to analyze vehicles in operation (VIO), original
equipment research and parts catalog coverage.

Nearly $2 billion in annual sales transaction data from WHI Solutions
(an eBay company) is incorporated into this solution from its Nexpart
e-commerce solution across the U.S. and Canada. Monthly sales data from
more than 18,000 users is normalized to the auto care industry ACES &
PIES standards, making it easy to link to IHS Markit data and providing
the user with easily recognizable product and brand nomenclature.

Users can compare brand or product line movement for a given time period
and geographic region against both the total units and dollars for that
product line and/or a specific competitive set. Actual transaction
prices are also included, allowing for competitive pricing analysis in
order to make near real-time decisions based on what is happening in the
marketplace. The database is updated monthly.

"This new offering fills a need in the marketplace to make decisions
based on actual transactional sales data – specifically, a view of what
is happening at the counter," said Mark
, global aftermarket practice leader, IHS Markit. "It also
provides the aftermarket with key performance and competitive pricing
metrics to help them make more informed category management decisions
for their business."

The solution is available now. For additional details, or to schedule a
