As more vehicles are sold, the demand for their replacement components will also rise.

Online shopping websites allow customers to compare various products on one platform, avail of heavy discounts and other offers, pay electronically, and have the products delivered at their doorstep.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the U.A.E. e-commerce automotive aftermarket in a number of ways. Most importantly, factory shutdowns have led to the low production and sales of vehicles and their replacement parts. Moreover, movement restrictions reduced the number of vehicles on roads, which led to a decrease in the incidence of road accidents, in turn, the need for auto repairs and overhauling.

The rising number of do-it-yourself (DIY) customers is pushing up the sale of auto parts in the country.

In the coming years, the highest value CAGR in the product sub segment of the U.A.E. e-commerce automotive aftermarket, on the basis of consumer, of 15.2%, is expected to be witnessed in the business-to-small-business (B2SB) category. With the burgeoning tourist count in the country, the demand for passenger vehicles has risen, which has encouraged many small auto parts retailers to proliferate. However, being small-sized businesses, they often do not possess all the parts, which is why they buy them online.
The tire category, based on component, will keep holding the largest share in the service sub segment of the U.A.E. e-commerce automotive aftermarket in the near future. With the rapid urbanization and industrialization, passenger car and commercial vehicle sales are picking up in the country.
