The automotive parts remanufacturing process involves disassembling used automotive components and parts, inspecting and testing their condition, replacing worn or damaged components, and reassembling the components to “like-new” condition. Remanufactured automotive components like engines, transmissions, turbochargers and others offer a cost-effective alternative to new components for vehicle owners as well as automotive repair shops. Remanufacturing extends the useful life of core components by bringing them back to original quality specifications. The advantages of using remanufactured automotive parts over new ones include cheaper pricing without compromising on performance and quality. With rising vehicular pollution levels across major cities in Europe, stringent emission norms have been implemented to curb air pollution and reduce the carbon footprint of the transportation industry. This is driving more consumers to consider replacing old vehicle parts with remanufactured versions as a viable and affordable way to keep their vehicles running efficiently in compliance with emission standards.
The Europe Automotive Parts Remanufacturing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 15.34 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 38% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
