Associated Industry Codes
Porter's Five Forces Analysis
Buyer Power: moderate
-consumers hold power in the choice of what they buy and have low switching costs
-price sensitivity restricts some options and low volume purchases lessen their strength
Supplier Power: moderate
-suppliers hold power with quality products because they are demanded at every level
-suppliers sell majority of products to 1 or 2 automakers weakens their power
Threat of New Entrants: moderate
-high fixed costs, strong brands/reputations and economies of scale at all level strengthen barriers
-established foreign competitors expanding are a top threat
Threat of Substitutes: strong
-rising gas prices, a recovering economy and increasing environmental awareness
-used cars, public transport, biking, carpooling, taxi (Uber)
-alternative fuel cars for fossil fuel manufacturers
Degree of Rivalry: strong
-low returns due to high costs of competition, high operating costs and exit barriers.
-automakers are in an oligopoly which minimizes price-based competition but increasing other
(preferred financing and long-term warranties)
-low switching costs for consumers heightens the competition for dealers
The auto industry experiences increased sales during the 2nd quarter (April-June) and decreases during the 4th quarter (October-December).
SAAR for auto sales in May 2014 were expected to be 13.6 million units, up from 12.8 million in May 2013.
-The automotive industry is expected have 12.3% share of the U.S. digital ad spending this year and increase 0.2% for the next three years
Dealers depend on auto manufacturers for: financing, marketing, warranties and inventory
Penske Automotive Group
Car Repair Customers

The two main groups are consumers 50 and over and consumers between 35-45 years.
: 22% of the industry revenue
Includes business that depend on motor vehicles for the daily running of the company, as well as taxi and rental car shops.
: 3% of the industry revenue
Consists of federal, state and local, this share has decreased in the past years due to government budget cuts.
