AAPEX Show 2021
April 8, 2021

Hello Media:

To keep you ahead of the curve, the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Analysis – compiled annually by AAPEX – has been updated for 2021. While 2020 clearly had significant challenges, the U.S. automotive aftermarket industry was deemed essential in March and has a history of resiliency during economic crises. Already, there are positive indicators that the U.S. automotive aftermarket will bounce back from the pandemic and grow 12% in 2021.

Here’s the latest AAPEX 2021 news:

In the first blog for AAPEX 2021, Paul McCarthy, president and chief operating officer, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), shares recent discussions with customers that have highlighted strong pent-up demand for face-to-face interaction and AAPEX. To read Paul’s blog, visit The Future of Face-to-Face and Our Essential Industry.
