      AAPEX will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Thursday, Nov. 3, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.

Students will be invited to apply for the program and AAPEX co-owner associations – the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) – will make the final selection. Students will be sponsored by an AAPEX exhibiting company and receive a complimentary package to attend and participate in this year’s event.

      The automotive aftermarket continues to demonstrate its market strength with higher-than-expected sales in 2021 in the wake of a slow economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
      Total U.S. light duty automotive aftermarket sales are forecasted to increase 8.5% in 2022, totaling $356.5 billion, according to the 2022 Joint Channel Forecast Model produced jointly by the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).
      This data will be examined in a joint,
      link hidden, please login to view led by Shane Norton of S&P Global Mobility at 1 p.m. EDT on June 9.  An additional 5% growth is expected for 2023 and growth will average more than 3% in 2024, bringing the light-duty aftermarket to $401.5 billion by 2025, according to the forecast.
      The compound average annual growth rate from 2019 to 2022 will be 5.7%, more than making up for losses seen in 2020 due to the pandemic. 
      “Year after year, the auto care industry continues to show its strength and reliability,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association. “In the midst of the highest gas prices on record and an inflation rate at a 40-year high, coupled with persistent supply chain disruptions and war in Eastern Europe, vehicle miles driven, vehicles in operation and consumer spending all increased in 2021 and are projected to increase into the coming years as well.” 
      “The automotive aftermarket once again shows its resiliency with a stronger than expected recovery from the pandemic,” commented Paul McCarthy, president and CEO of AASA. “In fact, the automotive aftermarket rose nearly 25% in the past two years despite ongoing headwinds, and we are excited to see the landmark market size of $400 billion in 2025. But as the industry advances to that landmark number, look for a new challenge to emerge as we may shift from a market supported by high demand and availability to a battle for market share. With that, we’ll see one more strength of the aftermarket emerge, collaboration with the right partners to ensure the same pace of success in this next phase of industry dynamics.” 
      Key data in the joint channel forecast model include:
      Market trends influencing the aftermarket  A 2021-2025 review of industry growth and forecasts Industry sales by channel including history and forecasts  Industry sales by distribution channel  And more The market sizing and forecast are conducted on behalf of the Auto Care Association and AASA by S&P Global Mobility (formerly the automotive team at IHS Markit), a leading business intelligence firm. The forecast is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Economic Census; IMR Inc.; and proprietary data, economic analysis and forecasting models from S&P Global Mobility.

      MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. recently unveiled a new microsite to provide automotive service shops with a resource to educate vehicle owners on the importance of having qualified technicians inspect and service their air-conditioning systems annually.
      Consumers benefit from their air-conditioning systems functioning properly not only to enhance cabin comfort, but also to avoid damage that may be costly to repair. A well-maintained air-conditioning system also is critical to ensure the proper temperature range for drivetrain batteries in electric and hybrid cars.
      In addition to a comprehensive checklist for proper A/C maintenance, service and installation, the MAHLE
      link hidden, please login to view features a multitude of useful resources including articles, easy-to-follow tutorials and industry statistics, as well as background on some of the company’s latest solutions, including premium MAHLE cabin air filters and the MAHLE OzonePRO professional sanitation system. “Shop owners can direct consumers to the ‘A/C check’ microsite for information about yearly service of their air conditioning system from a qualified auto technician,” said Ted Hughes, director of marketing MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “The site was also created to provide vehicle owners with information about the design and operation of the automotive air conditioning system, why regular maintenance is necessary to ensure its reliability, and details on do-it-yourself inspection and service guidelines.”
      The “A/C check” microsite also includes detailed information about some of the latest technologies from MAHLE, including the company’s expanded range of cabin air filters, as well as the MAHLE OzonePRO professional sanitation system. This innovative technology uses ozone gas to sterilize a vehicle’s interior and eliminate odors. In addition to its lightweight and automated operation that controls ozone levels and process time, it offers digital integration with mobile devices and report generation when the sanitation process is complete.
      From a small test workshop to one of the top 20 automotive suppliers, MAHLE is proud to celebrate 100 years of delivering superior quality products around the world. For more information about MAHLE Aftermarket and its brands, visit
