ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Automotive marketplaces are on a wild ride. All of the “coming soon” trends have arrived — digital retailing, auto manufacturers selling cars directly online, auto classified sites adding e-commerce services, and more — with billions of dollars of investment driving them forward. 

The AIM Group’s 2021 Automotive Marketplaces Annual dives deep into the fast-changing worlds of car dealers, auto e-commerce channels, integrated financing, used-car sourcing, and automotive marketplaces like Autotrader.com, Carsales.com, Mobile.de and more. The report covers more than 150 companies, with case studies, charts, graphics and analysis.

“The pandemic compressed 10 years of evolution into nine months of breakneck innovation,” said Peter M. Zollman, AIM Group founding principal. “Automotive classified sites have to move quickly into transactions. If they don’t, they’ll be gone — totaled before they can say ‘start your engines.’

“And with used-car inventory scarce almost everywhere, ‘sourcing wars’ for cars are creating fundamental changes at automotive marketplaces.” 

The 191-page report was based in part on more than 100 interviews with CEOs and other executives. It spotlights strategies and tactics at some of the world’s most compelling auto marketplaces: Auto Trader U.K., Auto1 Group, Aramis Group, AutoScout24, Cars.com, CarTrade, Carousell, Carsome, Carvana, Cazoo, Finn.no, HeyCar, OLX Autos and more. It incorporates a last-minute plot twist from Constellation Auto Group, which consolidated with CarNext in Europe. 

The report profiles three “companies to watch:” ReezoCar, a used-car business in Europe owned by a major banking institution; Syarah, a Middle East automotive marketplace that has switched from leads to transactions, and VavaCars, the c-to-b-to-c marketplace in Turkey owned backed by an oil trading company. 

The report includes the Top 50 global auto marketplace and classified sites, and the Top 10 by revenue. It also includes data on the leading auto sites in 66 countries, from A(rgentina) to Z(imbabwe).

The report sells for $1,495 at AIMGroup.com; a free preview is available there, too.
