While we celebrate these upswings, it’s important to note that we continue to monitor telematics and access to data, the average age of vehicles and the health of the economy in general in relation to their impact on the industry. The Factbook takes a deep dive into these topics and many more, providing the information needed to keep thriving in our dynamic aftermarket – which is projected to be a $433 billion industry in 2021.”
