What the Heck is Mypafway?


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

As an avid car enthusiast, I was tired of rummaging catalogues, magazines and websites to find the best deals on auto parts and accessories. So, I came up with the concept of allowing enthusiasts and others intuitively browse through a large catalog of auto parts and accessories. Purchases become confusing to say the least. Very often, car parts are not available at all outlets requiring multiple trips not only to different vendors but even to the same one. At some point in time, we all get tired, give up and take home something only to find that our purchase is not suited to our budget and needs. This is where Mypafway comes in.

From a business perspective we eliminate the manual and redundant processing of print by integrating part inventory online.  Mypafway’s primary purpose is the transfer of company and product information in a cost-effective manner.  We present information effectively online by streamlining your part inventory to our database.  Your time should be better spent on serving your customers and growing your business. If you have any further questions or comments feel free to reach me at [email protected]  Thank you.

      Electric vehicles. E-commerce. Vehicle complexity. Consolidation. Autonomous Driving. Connectivity. How will these and other trends affect the automotive aftermarket over the next decade, and more importantly, how should aftermarket suppliers respond?
      A new study – “The U.S. Automotive Aftermarket in 2035” – attempts to answer these questions, with aftermarket suppliers “facing more inflection points than we ever have before,” in the words of Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) President and CEO Paul McCarthy.
      “And the reality is we can’t handle them all,” McCarthy said at the 2022 AASA Vision Conference in Dearborn, Michigan. “So we need to understand which ones are really going to disrupt us and which ones may matter less. Because if there’s one thing we know, the aftermarket in 2035 is not going to look like the aftermarket today.”
      Conducted by the management consulting firm
      link hidden, please login to view, the study looks at the current and future states of the automotive aftermarket. One of the most alarming conclusions from the study is that aftermarket suppliers aren’t ready to deal with nine high-impact trends: BEV (battery-electric-vehicle) penetration; e-commerce and o2o (online-to-offline); consolidation; labor shortages; supply chain disruption; data access; autonomous driving; supply chain footprint; and sustainability. Barry Neal, senior partner at Roland Berger, and Neury Freitas, principal at Roland Berger, presented an overview of the study findings at the AASA Vision Conference. Here are some of the highlights.
      Battery Electric Vehicles
      How much and how soon will BEVs affect the independent aftermarket? That all depends on which part of the market you serve.
      By 2035, the study projects that only 2% of 12-year-old vehicles and older will be electric, while 11% of 8- to 11-year-old vehicles will be electric. However, the impact of BEVs will be more pronounced in newer vehicles, with 32% of 0- to 3-year-old vehicles expected to be electric.
      “The more you are dependent on the OES or OEM channel, the more or sooner EVs will actually impact your business,” Freitas explained.
      At 100,000 miles, BEVs require 50% fewer service visits than internal-combustion vehicles, based on OEM service recommendations. By 200,000 miles, that gaps shrinks slightly to 47%.
      “There clearly are services that will disappear in an EV,” Freitas said. “Anything that’s related to the engine, anything that’s related to combustion will go away.”
      BEVs will need battery coolant, but due to regenerative braking, brake systems typically last longer on electric vehicles.
      “The tire players are really happy,” Freitas added. “They are waiting for EVs, because either you have a heavier vehicle that needs a stronger structure of the tire, therefore they’re more expensive, or if you use a normal tire, that’s going to wear faster. So, that’s a positive.”
      Online-to-Offline Business Model
      The pandemic has accelerated the growth of o2o in the automotive aftermarket, as more consumers embraced buying parts and booking appointments via their mobile devices. The linkage between the offline and online worlds “brings a lot of benefits and a lot of convenience for consumers,” Freitas asserted.
      The increased convenience for consumers, and the cost savings along the value chain, will continue to drive the growth of o2o in two phases: parts efficiency, as proactive diagnostics and digital parts/service selection and scheduling enable a lower cost structure; and labor efficiency, as advanced booking/scheduling and predictive maintenance improve labor utilization and throughput.  
      “If you get the higher convenience for consumers, together with the potential cost savings, at a first step, if you know which parts will be needed and where they’ll be needed before they are actually needed, you can cut a few steps [from] the value chain and in the supply chain, and you can actually save some real money, as you don’t need hot-shot [delivery], for example,” Freitas explained. “And then in a second step, once we get to a large enough critical mass, and the shops are able to schedule similar services back to back, we might get some efficiencies from the technicians as well.”
      Consolidation
      According to Roland Berger, the United States is leading the way in terms of consolidation, with the top 10 distributors in the U.S. independent automotive aftermarket (IAM) commanding 75% to 80% of the total market share. Europe is a distant second, at 30% to 35%, while China is at 5% to 10%.
      Roland Berger sees more consolidation ahead for parts suppliers and service providers (mechanical and collision). Going forward, there won’t be as many opportunities for large retailers to acquire distributors, Freitas asserted.    
      “Therefore, if one of those big companies has a hiccup over the next 12, 13 years, we see as a chance of two of those top four or five players actually merging and becoming an even larger player,” Freitas added.
      Labor Availability
      Looking at the big picture, U.S. unemployment rates were at historic lows in the years leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the pandemic escalated in early 2020, it skyrocketed. Since then, the unemployment rate has been declining steadily. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in March dropped to 3.6%.
      Neal and Freitas showed two charts that don’t bode well for the future of the IAM. One chart showed a steady decline in the number of students completing postsecondary degrees for automotive repair since 2010. The other chart showed the imbalance between the supply and demand of technicians since 2010. While the technician shortage is nothing new, the gap between supply and demand is projected to widen in 2025 and beyond.
      Freitas concluded: “If the industry does not really get organized, we don’t think this problem is going to get solved anytime soon.”
      Supply Chain
      The headline here is that China appears to be losing its cost advantage – even without tariffs.
      For the past decade or so, if you wanted to manufacture products on the cheap, China was the obvious destination. However, when you factor in the rising costs of outbound freight, raw materials, manual labor and other variables, China will lose its cost advantage to Mexico as soon as this year. By 2035, due to the projected increase in China’s labor costs, it will be significantly cheaper to manufacture goods in Mexico compared to China, according to Roland Berger.
      Not surprisingly, Roland Berger projects that the percentage of U.S. auto parts manufactured in Mexico will grow from 24% in 2020 to 31% in 2035.
      Data Access
      By 2035, nearly 100% of new vehicles sold in the United States will be connected, meaning they’ll have the capability to receive and transmit information. Extrapolated to the total U.S. vehicle parc, 66% of vehicles will be connected.
      How we get to that point – and how it will affect the IAM – is less certain. Currently, the automakers control most of the data generated by vehicles, which is bad for consumers, bad for IAM suppliers and good for the OEMs. In the medium term, Roland Berger anticipates a shift to open APIs (application programming interfaces) and “mixed control” of vehicle data.
      In the long term, a move toward open APIs and open data would be best for IAM suppliers. However, where we land will likely be determined by federal lawmakers and the OEMs.
      Action Steps
      In light of the study’s findings, Neal and Freitas outlined a number of potential steps that IAM suppliers could take.
      “In terms of individual responsibilities, there’s the importance of reviewing the portfolio and product strategy,” Neal said. “As you look at the influx of new technologies, both in terms of electronics, battery-electric vehicles, ADAS and autonomous, how are you adjusting your portfolio to adapt to those and what is the strategy you have, whether that be a last-man-standing strategy or looking for a third leg in terms of other opportunities, or the development of an EV strategy to attack some of the new opportunities that are coming out?”
      Regarding the technician shortage, Neal also emphasized the importance of supporting trade schools “as well as supporting of advocacy at the high school and the middle school level for robotics programs and mechanical programs to ensure the interest of that technician force of the future, as well as an industry-level support for new entrants and opportunities, supporting aspects such as augmented reality and remote support for technicians in the field to allow some of those newer solutions to support a broader labor force in the future in terms of the capability set in technology.”

      link hidden, please login to view Why is catalytic converter matter?
      The catalytic converter belongs to the exhaust system of the vehicle. During use, they may be contaminated, blocked, or physically damaged, which will lead to poor engine performance, and in severe cases, the engine will stop.
      What can cause damage to the catalytic converter?
      Some pollutants can damage the catalytic converter, such as lead-containing gas, engine coolant and engine oil, among which the engine coolant can leak into the combustion system due to the failure of the cylinder head gasket. These liquids can clog the catalytic converter, thereby restricting the passage of exhaust gas.
      If the spark plug does not ignite or the exhaust valve is leaking, there is too much unburned gas, and the catalytic converter may overheat.

      What happens when the catalytic converter goes bad?
      Engine performance is slow The exhausted gas is black smoke with the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs The underside of the car is overheated
      How to mainitain catalytic converter?
      Maintain your vehicleregularly. Keep your exhaust, emission and combustion systems in good condition, which can effectively reduce the probability of catalytic converter damage Check the engine lights regularly.

      When we created Mypafway we knew we were building much more than a website.  We were building an icon on automotive soul, a celebration of sheer victory. Web based technologies helped save the aftermarket money by sourcing hard-to-find parts, kept inventory from landing in the wrong place at the wrong time and streamlining international operations.  It has also led to price reductions for consumers.  
      1.    Low barriers of communication would allow potential leads
      2.    Vendors can share experiences and promote their products through the Search Engine and Blog (example, latest research technology
      3.    Easy access to access credible information through the Search Engine  
      4.    Enable businesses to register online, manage inventory, payments, and orders through Mypafway's Client (SAAS, Software As A Service)
      Check out Mypafway's Beta website and tell us what you think. The Search Functionality will not work for obvious reasons.
