Today, many disgraceful information comes from market participants. This is explained, because almost everyone was not ready for the situation that arose, including the participants of the auto parts market. We tried to collect information and that’s what we got a picture for the past month.

The first and head trend, which became the consequence of the devaluation of the national currency — almost the widespread rise in price of spare parts. This is an external factor in relation to the market caused by the established markoeconomic situation. According to polls, prices for parts are not changed only in a small number of suppliers. Almost all independent hundred faced the problem of the rise in price of autocomponents. Suppliers mainly explain it by increasing the course of foreign currency, but it is clear that in the crisis period, such an increase in prices becomes a serious factor for independent stations.

More than 69% of respondents pointed to an increase in spare parts price within 10-20%, another 22% indicated an increase in less than 10%, and approximately 6% noted that prices increased by more than 20%.

Under the threat due to problems with spare parts and not too much profit of independent stations. But at least most of the representatives of the independent auto service segment, according to Gruzdev-Analyze, have not yet increased prices for their customers or are not going to do this. Poll data are presented below.

Also, according to the polls, the conditions for the supply of spare parts have changed, in some cases not for the better. A number of distribution companies — spare parts suppliers stopped working in some regions. However, the situation is constantly changing, somewhere in gradually restores, including the work of regional warehouses.

But in this regard, it can be noted that such a fact, independent STR, refuses service providers who change the rules of work not in favor of stations. Many managers of car service stations are not ready to agree on the deterioration of the conditions, and since all the suppliers have several, then with those who are not ready to enter the position of the service station at this stage, they simply refuse to work with them. And the consequences were not forced to wait. The situation began to change for the better. The aforementioned poll only for fixed the change in the state of affairs.

The number of suppliers with which auto services refuse to deal due to the deteriorating working conditions, fell almost twice to 27.4%. With the rest managed to agree to solve problems with spare parts together.

For these indicators, it is necessary to closely close, because from how all participants in the supply chain of autocomponents (a manufacturer — distributor — auto repair) will be able to build a relationship now, the future of the market depends on the crisis.
