When the chip crisis was added to the problem of supplying zero vehicles worldwide after the pandemic, many consumers turned to renew their vehicles. While this situation stimulated the used vehicle market, it also caused the service and spare parts sector to grow. Turning crises into opportunities, the sector aims to complete its technological infrastructure and grow with e-commerce to provide new employment.
Automotive sub-industry, which is one of the industries in which technology develops the fastest, is one of the sectors that renews itself the most in order to follow the rapid change process in the world markets and to maintain the level of competition. The automotive supply industry, which has reached a level that can meet almost all of the parts and components required for vehicles produced in Turkey in terms of its production capacity, product variety and standards it has reached, has a strategic importance both for Turkey and for companies that will invest in the country. The spare parts sector draws attention with its 2022 percent growth in the second quarter of 50.
Established in 2014 to facilitate access to automobile spare parts in Turkey, to inform users and to prevent industry fraud, “Part Ofisi” is an e-commerce platform that presents the original supplier industry concept in spare parts with accurate data. Eren Gelener, one of the founding partners of the company, stated that the technological transformation of the auto spare parts industry in Turkey has not yet been completed, and said, “Therefore, there are still conditions that can create employment in the sector. The sector is supported by new investments. zamWith the new technology infrastructure, a large market volume can be addressed both in the field of e-commerce and in the auto spare parts sector.” said.
A car consists of about 30 thousand parts
Eren Gelener made the following statements in her statement: “If we consider that an automobile consists of roughly 500 parts and, when considered to the smallest detail, approximately 30 thousand parts, it becomes clear how important and large the spare parts sector is. The spare parts sector, which is an industrial area that produces all kinds of spare parts and accessories excluding the body, for the automotive sector, which is the most important manufacturing branch of the countries with its employment and export potential, provides everything that a vehicle needs not only during the first production phase, but also during the whole period of traffic. It is an important sector that provides all kinds of spare parts and accessories.”
“There is a need for human talent, knowledge, experience and creativity”
ParcaOfisi.com Sales and Marketing Manager Gökhan Genç said: “In addition to the fact that 30 percent of the companies operating in the automotive supply industry have ISO 9000, QS 9000, ISO 14000 quality certificates that are accepted in international markets, most of them despite the development in technology. zamHuman talent, knowledge, experience and creativity continue to be needed at the moment. While this brings along the problem that companies cannot find the talented people they are looking for, it also creates the problem of decreasing the number of people to work in general. The production capacity of the automotive sub-industry can create a production value of approximately 80 billion dollars per year if the vehicle manufacturing sector operates at 60 percent capacity and the use of 9 percent domestic parts in the vehicles manufactured in our country. For this reason, as in many other sectors, the auto spare parts industry must keep up with the digital transformation. There are also many local companies that will support exports. Therefore, the sector can create great employment with new digital investments, especially the e-commerce platform, and it shows us the potential to make significant contributions to the Turkish economy in exports.”
“A distinction should be made between original and sub-industry in spare parts”
Expressing that they developed the ParcaOfisi.com e-commerce platform in order to facilitate access to spare parts, to inform the sector users correctly and to prevent high prices for spare parts, also known as sub-industry, Software Specialist Bünyamin Çayan said: and we present the correct known mistakes to the users with the correct data”.
