Automotive Part Supply Chain Categories

The automotive part supply chain is driven by three essential categories –OEM, replacement parts, and aftermarket parts. Below, is a more in-depth explanation as to what each of these imperative categories entail.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM)

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) deliver automotive parts for newly produced vehicles and are utilized directly in the assembly line. Therefore, these parts need to be made available at all times during new vehicle assembly to ensure uninterrupted construction efficiency.

Automotive Replacement Parts

Automotive replacement parts are typically manufactured by the same companies who produce original equipment for new vehicles. These replacement parts are employed should a vehicle be involved in an accident or requires updating.

Aftermarket Automotive Parts 

Aftermarket automotive parts consist of any vehicle part that is not manufactured by the original car manufacturer.
