Insights of the Evolving Landscape of Auto Parts Distribution in Spain and the Importance of Collaboration

Auto parts distribution in Spain is a vibrant and dynamic market, with many distributors operating in the sector. However, unlike in France and Germany, there is no dominant player in the Spanish market. In fact, until recently, the Spanish auto parts distribution sector remained relatively isolated from international consolidation.

However, this has changed in recent years, with several major international players making moves into the Spanish market. In 2018, Swiss Automotive Group acquired a stake in DAVASA Automocion, and in 2020, Alliance Automotive Group bought a stake in Groupauto Unión Ibérica and Lausan. PHE has also become active in Spain and has acquired several distributors since 2021.

Despite these changes, the Spanish market remains highly fragmented, with many small NTGs (National Trade Groups) seeking to join international cooperatives to gain a competitive advantage. Holy Auto, for example, has joined Nexus Automotive International through IDAP.

One notable feature of the Spanish auto parts distribution sector is its strong cooperative landscape. This has been driven by the proliferation of small, independent companies seeking to pool resources and share knowledge to better compete with larger players in the market.

However, the sector has also faced significant challenges in recent years, with three of the largest distributors – Coll, Impormovil, and Cecauto – going bankrupt. This has highlighted the need for companies to be agile and responsive to changes in the market.
