Unfortunately, unpleasant surprises that the economic crisis brought the car market have not yet been exhausted. Unfortunately, one of those who were hit, became car dealers of manufacturers factories. In 2017, car sales were reduced by 75%, and they had to hardly survive, trying to survive at this difficult time. According to experts, the situation was stabilized by the implementation of auto parts. So, in each of the cabin salons there are brand new cars, which were purchased just 2-3 years ago. But the warranty service period expires, and car owners leave the expensive service and look for more affordable options for themselves. Therefore, after some time, the last source of income – the sale of automobile spare parts – will completely come to naught, depriving the car dealers of the last source of income. New cars are sold very little, and they will not be able to provide salons with good earnings. Two years ago, about 15-20% of the dealer’s total income, while most of the car sales amounted to the cash desk from the sale of spare parts. Today, we came close to the level of a number of European countries, where the dealers of the car market receive the main income from sales of parts and components, and not from main activities. The implementation of new cars last year amounted to 623 thousand, and this year the indicator could not reach 200 thousand cars. It is clear that such data will in the near future will give negative results.
