Being the second biggest dealer of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the US, Advance Auto Parts (AAP), has over 3,400 stores and is present in over 30 states in the country. In a big move, Advance Auto Parts in 2005 purchased Autopart International, which was a big player in the Atlantic Seaboard. AAP has now also taken over the 195 stores of Autopart International, thus increasing its presence across the United States further.

The company’s latest financials include:
  • Revenues of $5,412.6 million in FY 2009
  • Operating profit of the company was $454.4 million
  • Net profit was $270.4 million in FY2009

  • Strengths

  • Threats
Involved in a project or in a business venture. It involves identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective.

Advance Auto Parts surely faces a difficult time as the worldwide economic recession put a hold on the growth of the automotive industry. However, it has been observed that global automotive volumes are recovering and it is expected that the automotive replacement parts’ market is going to witness a growth of 0.7% by the end of 2010 worldwide.

However, there is much to be done to ensure a uniform recovery, as short-term scrappage schemes have left vacuums of demand. The natural consensus is that the automotive aftermarket will recover, but the fundamental question remains when. Datamonitor expects the global aftermarket to reach E640 billion in 2011 following growth of 2.1% over 2010, as automotive players shift their focus away from Western markets and toward high growth emerging economies.
