GURUGRAM, India, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Competition Scenario:  SEA used car market is an extremely fragmented, with many players capturing more than one geography in the region. With several C2B & B2C online players, auto-classified platforms, OEM-certified, brand-authorized dealerships, multi-brand outlets, and independent (standalone as well as clustered) dealers operating in the business, there is fierce competition in the highly fragmented market. Recently, several new players have begun exploring the untapped markets in Southeast Asia. Price, vehicle age and residual value, brand value, and the need for maintenance are some of the most critical aspects influencing consumer preference.


Future Market Scenario: The used car industry in SEA is anticipated to expand in the future at a double digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2021 to 2026F. The sector is anticipated to experience increased demand as a consequence of individuals preferring their personal vehicles over public transit as a result of the pandemic.

Increasing internet and smartphone penetration in the Southeast Asian countries will result in large number of consumers preferring to buy and sell cars through online used car platforms. As a result, the used car industry is anticipated to consolidate and gain more traction in the coming years.

Significant Growth of Digital Used Car Platforms: Due to the huge growth in internet and smart phone usage in Southeast Asia, many customers have started selling and purchasing vehicles through online auto classifieds, transactional marketplaces, and social media.

In the SEA region, there has been a massive impetus in customer preference for used cars. The industry is expected to demonstrate rapid growth in the future driven by the expansion of online used car platforms that make the transaction process easier for both buyers and sellers.
