TOP 4 PUSHING FACTORS:
To fulfill the gap in the market and to cater the customer in every nook and corner of the nation various brands have opted for the franchise route bringing a new business opportunity for aspirants. Some of the major growth factors are:
Nowadays, purchasing a car is a painless task due to the easy availability of car loans and it has become a major growth driver for the emergence of the car service sector.
People invest their hard-earned money in cars and therefore require quality maintenance as well. This can only be provided by branded service centres.
Masses today are totally dependent on a car for travelling frequently. Hence, cars require a regular maintenance drive.
Expensive cars require special equipments which may not be available with local car centres. Though there is a large unorganised market for servicing, the more complicated cars of today cannot be dealt by these small shops. Training, parts, and equipment is needed, which we can deliver at a cheaper cost than the authorised service centres. Therefore these outlets have a unique proposition – multi-brand and a one-stop-shop for many of the auto needs of the customers.
The industry has been evolving over the years, meeting up with challenges as diverse as transitions, consolidations and restructuring, and thereby adapting to the new market conditions.
