DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “2022 Automotive Marketplaces Report” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

Economic roller coaster times. Dazzling rises and spectacular extinctions. Used car hunting. Online dealerships, once darlings of the auto industry, are fighting for their survival.

The report was based in part on more than 100 interviews with CEOs and other executives from automotive markets and automakers around the world. It sheds light on strategies and tactics on some of the most interesting markets in the world: CarMax, Carsales, Carvana, Kavak and Mobile.de, among others.

Automakers’ efforts to sell cars directly to individuals threaten dealerships. Online dealerships, once darlings of the auto industry, are fighting for their survival. Shortages of new and used cars have wreaked havoc on automotive supply. And through it all, many auto retailers posted record profits, with dealers selling at higher prices than ever before.

“The car sales business has always been a bit crazy, but 2022 has been crazier than ever,” said Peter M. Zollman. “Coming out of the pandemic, auto markets could have expected an easier year than 2020 and 2021. It certainly wasn’t easy. And 2023 doesn’t look like it will suddenly get easier.”
