The North American online automotive eCommerce market size is now over $16 billion (US dollars) and growing at 14%-16% per year. The total size of the automotive aftermarket/auto care industry is about $418 billion in 2020; that breaks down into $315 billion for automotive and $103 billion for medium and heavy duty trucks.
