Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Motorcycle Dealership and Repair industry retails discretionary products, such as motorcycles, personal watercrafts and all-terrain vehicles. At the beginning of the five years to 2016, industry operators were still feeling the effects of the economic downturn. However, these trends reversed in 2013, as economic conditions, including consumer confidence and disposable income, recovered. The industry is expected to trend upward over the five years to 2021. As the economy grows, disposable income will rise and more consumers buy motorcycles and other industry vehicles. Women and younger adults (under 40 years old) will become emerging market segments, which will likely boost industry revenue, as these markets were previously untapped.

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

Market share concentration in the Motorcycle Dealership and Repair industry is low, with no single operator accounting for a significant amount of industry revenue. In 2014, (latest data available), nonemployers accounted for nearly 70.0% of industry operators. As a result, the industry is highly fragmented. In addition, internal competition is expected to increase in light of disposable income and consumer sentiment rising. However, in the beginning of the five-year period, many industry operators, particularly nonemployers, were unable to recover from the economic downturn, causing them to exit the industry. Therefore, despite recent trends, the number of industry establishments is expected to fall at an annualized rate of 6.3% to 22,667 over the five years to 2016.
