Chinese automotive distribution industry is evolving towards:
i) Frequent mergers and acquisitions: the car dealer powers not also build new outlets but initiate M&As to expand their coverage. For instance, in the first half of 2017, China Yongda Automobile Services acquired nine 4S stores and one urban exhibition hall; and Baoxin Auto purchased six 4S stores and one exhibition hall.
ii) The networking of automotive distribution: the advancement of the internet leads to changes in the consumers' habits; automobile e-commerce springs up. To date, the traditional car dealers have made presence in the Internet +, so have the other entrants to seize more market shares.
Take example for souche.com, Guazi.com, xin.com, and GOME that have launched online car purchase services in succession.
iii) Automotive finance' impetus: the burgeoning automotive finance makes cars affordable for more people, particularly the new means like "zero down payment" and "10% down payment" launched by souche.com and Guazi.com make a car purchase be a piece of cake, arouse more wishes to have a car, which beyond doubt facilitates the development of automotive distribution industry.
iv) A surge in used car sales: the growth of new car market conduces to a steady rise in car ownership, providing the space for the development of used cars. Being pushed forward by the policy of limited migration for used cars (limited migration refers to the fact that the cars with low emission standards in one place are limited to be migrated into another place in China; limited migration of used cars have been cancelled in more and more places across China) and the growing maturity of used car e-commerce, the used car trade will be on a steady rise in China, and a total of 20.96 million used cars will be traded in 2021.
