Every year, market demand level of each automotive part that are marketed, varies depending on the needs of the market. For this reason, it is very important to pay attention to identify as soon as possible, both the parts that are becoming obsolete, and those where demand begins to be important and therefore we must add them into our product range.
Before talking about the product of the year 2018, now a year a go, we wrote in this blog the article: “The product of the year 2017”. In this article we considered that the product with the highest growth in demand during 2017, was the alternator: VALEO CG20U015 for MERCEDES BENZ application.
How has the demand of this alternator evolved during this year 2018?
As we can see, the demand for VALEO CG20U015 alternator has continued to be very good, consolidating as a product of high demand. In fact, we would be talking about one of the top-400 most demanded units in Europe.
If we focus on the current year, what has been the product that has had the most important demand growth in Europe during the year 2018?
VALEO FG20S022 AUDI 04L903017A
VALEO FG20S025 AUDI 04L903017C
Although we are not talking about a product that is currently very high turnover, we can highlight it by the growth of demand that has experienced throughout the year 2018.
For the year 2019 this alternator should be on the shelves of any distributor that has a range of at least 2500 units. Currently it can only be found in the market as an OE or Reman, although it will certainly begin shortly to be available in the IAM manufacturers catalogs.
