The Takeaways: Suzuki highlights four large companies in the auto parts market in AutoZone (NYSE: AZO), O’Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ: ORLY), Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP) and Genuine Parts Company (NYSE: GPC).

“The US automotive parts and repair market is large, stable, highly profitable (versus other segments of the auto value chain, and relatively fragmented,” analyst Elizabeth Suzuki wrote in a note.

Auto parts retailers have seen a 13.5% average margin compared to 5.4% for new vehicle manufacturers, 8% for parts manufacturers and 3% for auto dealers.

In the do-it-yourself market, AutoZone leads the way with 14% market share. Advance Auto Parts, O’Reilly and Genuine have market shares of 6%, 9% and 3% respectively. New car dealers make up 4% of the market.

The do-it-for-me market sees new car dealers have a 35% market share. The four auto parts companies mentioned each have 5% or less market share in the category.

What’s Next: Suzuki expects consolidation to continue in the industry.

The threat of (NASDAQ: AMZN), the largest seller of auto parts online, is something to watch, according to Suzuki. The survey showed that customers favor retailers that offer buy online, pickup in-store as an option, which could fend off the large online retailer for now.
