GiPA UK, automotive aftermarket intelligence organisation, have released the Q2 results of their quarterly Aftermarket Pulse report. The market recovery situation by the end of June 2021 was 2.9 per cent higher than GiPA’s expectations. While in comparison to the same period in 2020, a double-digit recovery in the market has been observed – particularly in the second quarter of the year – the market is far from having recovered its 2019 activity levels.
Following the unprecedented storm that shook the UK aftermarket in 2020, GiPA created a quarterly aftermarket activity report called Aftermarket Pulse. The objective is simple: assess the state of recovery of the aftermarket in 2021 on a quarterly basis. Last week GiPA delivered the Q1 results. Whilst the aftermarket suffered massively from the lack of mileage due to the third national lockdown from January to March 2021, the impact on UK workshops turnover was not as bleak as anticipated.
