Auto Care Segmentation
The automotive segment of the auto care industry includes replacement parts, accessories, chemicals, tires and non-warranty
service for passenger cars and light trucks (i.e., pickup trucks, vans, minivans and sport utility vehicles). The professional service
segment, the Do-It-For-Me (DIFM) segment consisting of the professional repair, maintenance and installation of automotive products
at both independent aftermarket outlets and vehicle dealerships totaled $228.1 billion (80 percent) of the total in 2017. The balance of
the industry, the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) segment, is comprised of consumers who repair, maintain and accessorize their own vehicles,
which totaled $57.7 billion (20 percent) of the total $285.8 billion industry in 2017.
