Sept. 16, 2014—E-tailing is the fastest-growing retail segment in the automotive aftermarket and is becoming a significant revenue stream for auto parts sales, according to a new study released by the Auto Care Association (ACA).

E-tailing refers to parts sold through publicly accessible websites by both DIYers and servce professionals.

“Very little solid data existed on the size and makeup of the e-tailing channel, until now,” said Kathleen Schmatz, president and CEO of the ACA. “This first-of-its-kind study, produced by the Market Intelligence team of committee volunteers and staff, provides unprecedented insight into e-tailing purchase behaviors across multiple industry sectors, and the impact of these trends on the entire auto care industry.”

In the ACA’s new report, "E-Tailing in the Automotive Aftermarket," the organization analyzes online retail market for sales of aftermarket parts.
