Collision repair shop sales in 2011 totaled an estimated $38.70 billion — up 3.3 percent from $37.50 billion in 2010, according to the 2012 Digital Collision Repair Trends report from AAIA. Independent paint and body repair shops made up $25.70 billion, or 66 percent, of the total market.
The report combines data from original AAIA research, government and independent research sources. It’s designed to capture the size and scope of the collision repair sector of the automotive aftermarket. Copies of the new study are now available at http://www.aftermarket.org/ProductPull/Publications/75046.aspx. The cost is $125 for AAIA members and $250 for non-members.
