Shocking Facts of Automobile Spare Parts Companies In India

The automobile spare parts industry, better known as auto components manufacturer industry, is witnessing a robust growth at present. Last year India surpassed Germany to become the fourth largest automotive market in the world.

Automobile sales in India are also growing on a yearly basis. Thus, this has resulted in an increase in production of the spare parts and auto components, which demands the need for cost-effective production of the spare parts. As a result, India has emerged as a global hub for auto component sourcing, and thus auto components manufacturers.

According to the 2019 Indian Auto Components Industry Analysis, the auto-components industry accounted for 2.3 per cent of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2017-18. The rise in this industry can be attributed to favourable government policies. Now let us understand the importance of spare parts.

Importance of Spare Parts

Each part that goes into making a car has its own unique and important features and is usually known as a genuine part. All these automobile components are made to undergo rigorous testing by the automotive parts manufacturers to meet the specified standards of safety, performance and quality.

Thus, replacement of defective parts as a result of damage, collision or general service and maintenance ensures that your vehicle will perform the way it should. Though the non-genuine parts might appear identical to the genuine parts, they may fail without giving any prior indication. The genuine spare parts are approved and warranted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Thus, replacing defective parts with genuine spare parts at regular service intervals will help you increase the longevity of your car’s life. Now let us go through the list of auto components manufacturers in India.
