Analysis of vehicles in use throughout Western Europe

Aimed primarily at aftermarket and fuel-oil suppliers, this latest study from AID reveals a comprehensive breakdown
of passenger cars currently in use on today's roads. It quantifies the size of the parts and service aftermarket for passenger
cars and sports-utility vehicles (SUV) throughout the whole of Western Europe. The study details the structure and make-up
of each West European market, showing details of parc by age and fuel type for all main market segments (Small sector,
Lower-medium, Upper-medium, Near-executive sector, Executive sector, Sports cars, People-carriers, SUVs, etc).

OE & Non-OE Parts/Channel Support

Leading models within each segment are identified both in volume terms and segment share, together with petrol/diesel
splits. Furthermore, each sector is broken down by age-profile to provide the reader with a wealth of data about the 
composition of vehicles within each individual market.  Additionally, a summary at manufacturer level is included to give 
an overview of age distribution by marque for each market.

The study further treats Western Europe as one single market, reproducing the detailed analysis for each individual passenger
car market (as outlined above) at a pan-European level.

AID's latest Passenger Car Parc Study thus serves a three-fold purpose - meeting the needs of aftermarket component suppliers 
& outlets, assisting vital strategic product decisions at a market level, and also supporting decision makers looking at a wider 
European perspective.

Further support to both aftermarket and fuel-oil suppliers is offered by the study's inclusion of engine capacity and performance 
analysis, including a breakdown of models on West European roads split by 2WD/4WD.

AID's own vehicle in use assessment as at September 2004

AID's extensive knowledge built up since the early 1970's has allowed this latest study to treat each market at identical levels of 
detail, providing a consistent approach to presenting the pan-European scene.

In-house data modelling algorithms have been developed and refined over the years to ensure maximum parc accuracy, thus 
providing the user with excellent vehicle-in-use data that is bang up-to-date. All the data used to compile this 200+ page study 
reflects a snapshot of Europe's roads as at the end of September 2004.

Markets individually covered by this study:

BeLux (Belgium + Luxembourg)
Eire (Irish Republic)
United Kingdom

Summary tables for the whole of Western Europe and each individual market include: 

- Cars in use by country
- Cars in use by age

- Cars in use by manufacturer

- Cars in use by marque

- Cars in use by sector

- Leading cars in use by model

- Cars in use by fuel (petrol/diesel)

Graphs are also included to provide an overview of each market's parc movements throughout the past decade. West 
European summaries of today's passenger car parc - split by both engine capacity and power - are also included. Additionally, 
a profile of Europe's passenger car parc split by body-type (door-plan) is also included. Furthermore, a break-out of today's 
10 million VW Golf models currently on our roads is given for each generation:- Golf II, Golf III, Golf IV, Golf V, etc.

Car replacement parts, but for what model(s)? 

If aftermarket product strategies in the European automotive market are your main line of business, this certainly is your study. 
It's all about identifying the beckoning opportunities in today's market for car replacement parts. It almost goes without saying - 
the vital need to identify the right replacement parts for the right models. That, of course, varies from market to market. It's 
crucial questions like these that AID's Parc Study trys to answer.
