    The field

    This sector is becoming increasingly important for both vehicle manufacturers and supplier companies. At the same time, manufacturers and suppliers are facing growing challenges: Like the automotive industry as a whole, the automotive aftermarket is undergoing a historic transformation.  These include increasing technical complexity with implications for parts and diagnostics, rising logistical requirements due to the high diversity of parts, changing market structures and the impact of legal framework conditions. The activities are controlled by the VDA Aftermarket Committee and several working groups.
