Surging Prices of New Vehicles Increases the Market Value 

Semiconductor chips are essential components required for the production of new cars and trucks. The shortages of new vehicles and higher prices have pushed more people towards used vehicles. Recent shortages of microchips pushed used-car prices to record levels, reducing the production of new vehicles. Additionally, rental car companies, normally a source of vintage used vehicles, are keeping their cars longer because they can't get new ones.

Rise in the global economy and online vehicle reselling platforms drives the used vehicle market value. Additionally, rising distributors and stores of used vehicles and growth in OEMs and MRO service outsourcing push market growth. Also, the increasing numbers of automotive part manufacturers foster the growth of the market. 

COVID-19 Impacts 

The COVID-19 impacted the used vehicle industry in two ways. On one side, where the pandemic disrupted nearly all the regular sources of used cars, the used car market saw continued interest from buyers. Automakers faced a number of problems ranging from obtaining raw materials to attracting workers from quarantines to delivering end products.

Besides, strict lockdown mandates halted production facilities and forced several manufacturers to cut down their production output. While the pandemic has obstructed sales of new autos, pre-owned cars are in demand as cost-conscious buyers seek value for money. Consumers are shunning mass transit systems to avoid catching Covid-19, and people are extending their leases of rental vehicles.

As travel and tourism businesses came to a halt, new car sales by car rentals were far fewer in the past year. Rental car companies are buying used cars themselves to rebuild their fleets sold in last year. The market demand is anticipated to pick up further following the uplift of the lockdown in many countries.
