Used Car Market Size Worth $3.3 Trillion by 2032 – Growing Population, Easy Affordability, New Market Competitors & Industry Projections

Newark, Jan. 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 1.9 trillion used car market will reach USD 3.3 trillion by 2032. A used car is a pre-owned car that can be sold again. Used cars are sold through various venues, including private party sales, franchised and independent auto dealers, rental car agencies, auction houses, and leasing offices. Because personal cars are more expensive to buy and maintain, millennials have a lower rate of car ownership. Furthermore, millennials prefer to drive older automobiles since they want to save money on their transportation. Furthermore, the high cost of new cars prevents many individuals from purchasing them, which increases the market’s sales of used cars. Additionally, this opens the market to various expenditures made by industry players to set up their dealership network. E-commerce companies have leveraged digital transformation to expand their market share. Used car market participants worldwide are turning their attention to online sales channels due to e-commerce’s ability to remove geographical barriers for businesses and enable sales in locations that can be difficult to access with traditional models. Because of all these factors, the increase in online sales is anticipated to drive demand for used cars during the projected period.
